Work had me out in the community today - I got to see the sun! - and I needed to be super-comfy for lots of driving. I popped out to the barn for outfit photos before I left.

It's taken years of searching to find prescription-friendly sunglasses which suit me - the homogenization of mainstream fashion, so much sameness, "it gives me the irrits" (a charming Lilli figure-of-speech).
Of course, as soon as I found workable sunglasses, I had to go and fall madly in love with these, in white.
When I finally started craving more colour and less black in my wardrobe (not that long ago), it was hilarious to find that grey and sandy and very muted tones suit me best.
Do you remember "having your colours done"? At about age 13, I was diagnosed a "summer" and have a visceral memory of seething with incoherent rage while my "winter" sister sat there smugly flipping through her little folder of pinked-edge swatches, all jam-packed with bright reds and white, solid black, vivid blues and yellows, where I was stuck with ... dusty rose and crap. Man, that sucked!
The amplitude of that sulk must have been quite something to behold.
Happy weekend, everyone!
