This must have been a favorite skirt style of mine (elastic waist and pleats) because I keep finding it in the photo archives. It seems that white socks and dark penny loafers were stock items in my closet as well.
Yesterday I encountered this meeting as I was leaving work… uncomfortable seating, no beverages or snacks, and it looks like the conversation is at an impasse.
Hidden under the remains of winter are fantastic surprises.
I certainly look well-coiffed for my fourth-grade school picture, but I question the need for the feathering on the sides and the extra poof at the top.
This tiny nest sits precariously high in a tree that grows in the landscaped island of a busy shopping center nearby. As we approach the warm-weather real estate season, I’m curious to see if it will pique the interest of any of our feathered friends.
Here in the South, Lenten Roses are one of the first flowers to brave the cold weather of late winter. You’ll find them pushing their way up through leafy blankets of debris and taking command of their garden space early. They’re not timid in their showiness… dazzling to the eye, actually. They are one of my favorite barometers of the seasonal changes to come.
I don’t think I’ve ever had a problem holding my high-waisted skirts up in place… these straps are more decorative than functional.
