Solid Color or Print Bottoms

Hello Blogland! How is everyone this fine Thursday evening??? I am SO happy I am off tomorrow because this week has been the pits. Oh well.

Putzing in the garden last night helped immensely. I weeded a bit, tied up my tomatoes and picked my first cucumber. I’m going to have a bumper crop ready this weekend and zucchini too.  The squash plants are HUGE!!

My veggie Garden. Yes, that is pink flamingo’s you see!

This challenge was a bit hard. I usually wear solid colored pants. I have a pair of black & white gingham crops and I wore my seersucker pinstripe ones yesterday. I’m on the hunt for some houndstooth and black/white pinstripe for winter. As far as bright colors–I have a pair of bright pink pants I recently thrifted that I want to make into crops because I think I’d get more wear out of them.

I scored this sweater yesterday and since it was cooler weather I HAD to put together an outfit immediately!

My hair has been driving me crazy lately. I was trying to grow it out a bit again but it seems once it gets a millimeter too long it looked like a rodent crawled on my head and died. I really like how chic Jamie Lee Curtis, Judi Densch and other mature ladies look with a pixie cut. I decided today was the day it comes off. I took my picture when I got home so you can see the difference. What do y’all think??

The new ‘do!

I’m giving workshops this weekend at a fundraiser craft festival. I’m demonstrating yo-yo flowers (which are very similar to Megan Mae’s darling button flowers,) primitive rug hooking and collage jewelry. So I need to get my butt off of this computer and get my stuff together!!

  1. Your new hair cut looks sassy and smart! Good choice I’d say!

    You look fantastic. I love the chic short haircut-very flattering. The belted top is wonderful. I do not have a waist-being rather an apple shape- but have learned that wearing a belt and putting a shirt or jacket on to give the illusion of a waist works! (as illustrated by you) And ths shorter top-hitting around your hop bones makes your legs look so much longer. The silver purse is wonderful. I love it! This is a look you should repeat in every color.

    “hip” bones not hop bones!

  4. I love your new hairdo! Green with black is perfecto!! 🙂
    Have a super weekend!

  5. I love the new cropped do! I was doing the same thing before chopping it off. It’s too hot this summer to try growing it out.

    Also how cool! I also make the yo-yo style on occasion. The folded ones are just my preference for looks. I have also been in talks to do a workshop with them. They’re so easy and fun.

    I like any pattern with that spring green in it…one of my favorite colors! The new haircut is super chic, I like it a lot. That is the cut I will return to when I’m finished with my hair growing experiment…
