I've sorry I have been sort of scarce these days. Sometimes I need to hibernate for a week or so with minimal human interaction (other the necessary home and work). I have been enjoying my wardrobe these days after a few purchases, but have been having photographer issues - DH leaves too early in the morning and I am still a little shell shocked over the boy ratting me out (for those who missed it: http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....-dog-house)

This morning I was so happy to try a version of Angie's recent waist defining post, so I managed to get it documented. I wore this same top a week or so ago, tucked into a pencil skirt, with a leather obi belt and it was even better as far as natural waist definition, but I really enjoyed today's outfit too. I think that it fits with the spirit of the post - even though it is belted lower, there is a good bit of volume in the top. This new top from Loft is my absolute perfect white. I wish someone would name this color of white so that I could find it again. It is not too yellow, not too blue, not too bright. It is perfect. And I want to wear it all the time. I was also pleasantly surprised by these Old Navy Pixie pants (like yours, Una). I sized up, so the belt is necessary, but it means that I can actually wear a pair of skinny pants, without a tunic... In PUBLIC. This is nothing short of a miracle!! New Isaac Mizrahi shoes and thrifted belt finish it off.

On a completely unrelated note (I have been storing things up on my hibernation to tell you) I was marveling how wonderful it is to be understood. We were in the car one day when Ethan looked at me and said "you know what would look good with that outfit, Mom? Your grey sweater with the long arms and thumb holes." The boy never ceases to amaze me - he pays such attention to detail. Then one day, my husband was at a motorcycle convention and I got a text from him with a photo of a woman's hair and no explanation other than a smiley face (see photo #3). He walked up to a model and asked if he could take her picture to send to his wife because she has short white hair too, and he even made her turn to the side to get the full effect. I really really love that man.
