"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): whew!

Thursday, May 21, 2009


After being in the 90s with 25mph winds the past two days, today is back to normal temps and winds. The boy and two more of our friends are leaving today to go on a road trip out to D.C. and Syracuse to visit our friend Peter. I'm sad he's gone like 10 days, but I'll get so much done! I'm designing and printing like 20 onesies, I've got a ton of vintage stuff to put on etsy, a huge sewing pile, some additional t-shirt designs to put on etsy too, a swimming pool that's about to open, some tax stuff with the shop to figure out, and a million other little to-do lists that I want to finally actually DO. Plus, 50% off day at a bunch of thrift stores on Monday, so I may just get up bright and early and hit a few up at 9am before I spend the rest of the day grilling and lounging.

My office is cold. Seriously. So even though it's in the 70s, this is perfect:
Cardigan - stolen from a friend's "to the Goodwill pile", years ago
Tank - thrifted (I think this was someone's camp project or something. It's a Fruit of the Loom undershirt that has been tie-dyed. Score!)
Cropped pants - Marni
Sandals - Old Navy, long ago

I get a lot of compliments and "where did you get those?" whenever I wear these sandals. They were the only pair on clearance at Old Navy about six years ago and they just so happened to be my size. $5!

Yay of the day: my new exercise ball chair at work! Feel the burn, all day long, without doing anything. Yay to progressive schools! Our middle school kids all got them in their classrooms too!

Boo on you: Anna Wintour. She did an interview with Morley Safer for 60 Minutes and they were talking about the inspiration behind an article on obesity. She said, "I had just been on a trip to Minnesota, where I can only kindly describe most of the people I saw as little houses." Erm, what?!? We are the 3rd fittest city in the NATION! New York? 5th fattest. Boom.

I think that tank is awesome! I want to try some tie-dye or at least some bleaching to my basic tees because I am getting bored with them!! By the way, I think you're really pretty!
