I sure hope everyone got the obligatory cup of tea in bed this morning, hmmm?
I did not, but I forgive them because everyone did tiptoe in to kiss me and wish me a Happy Mother's Day before rushing off to their various jobs :)
And then there was this...
I'm dressing for comfort today, although of course I am a big believer that dressing for comfort does not necessarily mean one should sacrifice style. Jeans are comfortable, and look especially good when worn with a plain and simple white Tshirt; a timeless example of casual chic, no?
Doing another assessment of my wardrobe this morning, preparing for our trip coming up soon! (squeee!) I am embarrassed to see that as usual I could easily wear weather-appropriate, entirely me-made ensembles for the whole month with no double-ups of any garments whatsoever. I need to either stop sewing and knitting (IMPOSSIBLE!!) or get rid of a few things (ALSO IMPOSSIBLE!!) I'm simply too ridiculously attached to my handmade stuff, but I still have this restless urge to create more. Last night we attended the ballet (fyi; I wore my red dress and my ivory trench coat together (below), so I was completely me-made but no photo sorry...) and it occurred to me as I sat admiring gorgeous costumes twirling and wafting by on wondrously graceful and athletic ballet dancers that I should try to get a job helping to sew costumes for the ballet or the opera or something like that. I would be as happy as Larry just quietly toiling away at the sewing machine everyday and I wouldn't even care about the pay; seriously!
The only problemmo would be this; who would do my very-unstimulating-but-still-unfortunately-very-necessary officework if not me??
