what i wore today

and the final installment (for now) in the what i wore today series. i think i did it mostly as a way of getting properly dressed. when you work from home, you have a habit of remaining rather slothfully in comfy pajamas all day. and tho' i love those comfy pajamas, dressing up gives you something extra psychologically.

since it's friday and the storm outside seems to have mostly blown through, i thought a little dressing up was in order. i've pinned several messy braid photos to my pinterest and thought i'd give it a try today.



messy braids: intentional
dress: lysgaard
sweater: noa noa
necklace: pilgrim
ring: impulse purchase in babo, manila
leggings: found at the grocery store
brown boots: vintage (now), purchased new 15 years ago at bloomingdale's in chicago
eyeshadow: moss paint pot by mac

probably should have ironed the dress.

happy weekend, everyone!

you know what I love best? That you still haven't swept the floor! A woman after my own heart (unless it is a Danish/US tradition that I don't know about...)

Once again--I love it all and even the messy braids. Do you know if there is a Lysgaard in the states or can you order off line?

Have a great week-end!

Best
Tracy :)

So, how about your Carhartt's and Danner's ... Self-respecting workers rely on Carhartts and steel-toed Danner's whether you're walking steel 40 stories up or working with a back hoe next to the interstate, Carhartts ARE the right fashion statement. And, now they're available in several colors!

"found at the grocery store" kind of sounds like they were just lying on the floor, discarded. please tell me you bought them!
