Well, they are not actually secret. But what I like about this outfit is between the reversible scarf and skirt of recycled sari fabric, there are so many bits of pattern that don't get seen all at once, but reveal themselves in motion. Last night I was out with my best friend of ages, Fiona of Oakhill Design Company, who was celebrating her live television debut - congrats, doll!!! - and our Julie.

I wore the necklace, dress, and shoes together just recently, but though it has a lot of the same elements, wanted to wear this outfit before it gets too cold (I've also got on some grey leggings, from Jacob almost 20 years ago, which usually live in my pj drawer). Do you find yourself doing that too?
Being with friends was such a nice break from all the busy overload and deadline driven-ness. It doesn't look to be letting up just yet, but is shifting and changeable in its patterns too. I have been missing commenting on others' blogs and responding to comments here.

Though I am so tempted to stay at home in jammies, I had better stay in motion myself - I've got some mundane things to attend to and an anniversary celebration to attend. I let my hair grow an extra week, and it is super-shaggy-riffic, plus the tectonic plates under Laundry Mountain seem to have thrown up not just a new peak but an entire range. I am looking forward to figuring out something fun to wear!
Hope y'all are well, and having a good weekend too.
