• Cardinal Again

    More in the theme of “Frances dresses like cardinal in the wintertime”, an outfit from a rather snowy day.

  • Cardinal Colored

    I have more California pictures to share, and indeed many more summer and fall pictures to share, but it was 3°F this morning and I found myself rather resenting the ice-free photos. And honestly, I didn’t have a lot to say about them. “In this picture here, it is a reasonable temperature. I was warm. It was nice.” So instead, I figured I ought to share a few more timely posts of what I’m wearing now.

    As it turns out, when the mercury drops I take most of my dressing cues from the birds — Cardinals do the brightest and cheeriest job at dressing for the winter, and I do my best to copy them.

  • California Trip - Part 1

    It’s well and truly November, cold and dark and leafless outside, so it seemed like now was as good a time as any to catch up with some pictures of our visit to sunny California back in (yikes) May. Doug and I made the trip for our honeymoon, and got a chance to do lots of sight-seeing as well as catch up with some relatives who hadn’t been able to make it out for our wedding.

    We went hiking at Point Reyes National Seashore on the Tomales Point Trail the day after we got in, and although I don’t have any good pictures of Doug and I in our hiking gear, I did at least snap a couple pictures of the stunning scenery.

  • Where I′ve Been

    It has been awfully quiet around here. I know.

    There are lots of reasons for this. The weather is too hot, the weather is too rainy, I’m tired, I don’t know what to write (probably a topic for a post itself, heh)… but most recently, the reason I haven’t been blogging, or in fact doing much of anything aside from sitting on the couch working on my latest sweater is that I broke my foot.

    I didn’t even break it in a particularly dramatic or exciting way, either. One moment I was sitting on my bed, working on something on the computer, and the next I was sprawled on the floor in the hallway regretting several of my recent decisions.

  • On The Dot

    This large blue felt hat is the second hat I brought back from my Busia’s collection when I visited California this spring. (See the other hat here)

    Navy is one of those colors I keep accidentally acquiring and then I don’t have the first idea what to wear it with, so fortunately I already had the navy dress and had recently acquired the navy shoes to go with it as well. The Re-Mix “Flora” wedges remind me a bit of cactus, which seems like a fitting nod to my grandparents’ Southern California home.
