My original post got lost while trying to add pictures, so meanwhile I have figured out how to link it to the original blog post. Here goes!

How surprised I was to read Angie's post today, when I far on
the East coast had long ago got dressed for the day. Amazing how many of
you have had a chance to chime in already.

(I may have to add the pictures later, still trying to figure out how to get them off my phone-camera in fewer than 5 steps... ETA, turns out I can only upload them when I am at home?)

Original plan for today was dress and sneakers (expected 27'C) but it
was still chlly so that one will wait for tomorrow--when I'm working
the first aid tent at the music festival--if I'm brave enough.

Instead I thought I'd give one of my longsleeved Breton T's a spin to
work (I have tried to wait until school was out to really get into the
summery stuff). The skirt was recently passed on from a friend who's
leaving the country, and I wasn't sure I would figure out how to wear
it. I don't really do pink, but I have persuaded myself that this is
Nantucket red! I added the striped belt becuae it didn't look right
without the T tucked in. The navy blazer, just because I can (I love
blazers but they don't fit my life. So this is outerwear, in a very
limited, late spring/early summer season).

2 shoe options, I wore the navy wedges from home, but changed into
the white ones at the office when my plantar fasciitis started acting

Bonus pic #3: what I wore to the festival that night: changed the skirt for a maxi. Brought along a kikuyu, Kenyan multi-purpose shawl/scarf/blanket/wrap. The fake Birks were just for comfort at home; I wore my LLBean duck boots to the venue, and they were much too muddy to take upstairs. Typical festival, after a day of rain everyone was in wellies (and we handed out a lot of bandaids...)

I did do the dress and sneakers for day 2, but wore my navy polo dress over a skinny pair of navy capris. (No picture, I was too wiped.)
