My August challenge -- besides another travel capsule -- is to try out some Angie ensembles that I haven't yet had a chance to try, in the process de-orphaning a few orphans, and experimenting with new combinations.

Yesterday, I got my first opportunity when Mr. Suz and I went for an anniversary lunch at a local patio.

The first 4 components of the outfit were easy peasy: VC tube skirt, CM split back tank, Okalas, and my anniversary necklace from Israel.

But my wardrobe is very short on cognac and I do not have a cognac bag. What to do?

Binocular case to the rescue! It worked perfectly as a small cross body bag, just big enough for phone , keys, sunnies.

Sadly, I came home from the lunch feeling quite sick. I've been battling stomach flu all week and now have a migraine on top of it. I guess it's just the accumulated stress. Time to lie low for a while.
