Weary Blues

Since workin' for myself I'm feeling slightly more and more crazy each day. It's a big deal to leave the house and go to the post office... today was quite a day though! the post office AND a trip to harvard square! I even splurged and bought new shoes! yes indeed - cool life!!! (sike!)

Enough of my workin' at home woes though!!So, this 'lil outfit of mine was inspired by two things. Paul Whiteman (you stole my heart sir) and Jessica's post about Footlight Parade. I'm terrible at watching movies. I usually fall asleep and I think I'd rather listen to records - but the little stills look adorable and those gals are sweet as pie! If only I could turn cartwheels like Paulie ... life would be perfect!

Ten little tappin' toes


(also, I have NOT forgotten about the second Rainbow Box installment, I'm just having a hard time choosing images... you'll find out more tomorrow though!)

anyway, you look charming as usual (love those shorts!), can't wait to get that dress in the mail dear :)!

p.s. i'm hosting a welovecolorstights giveaway if you fancy those kind of things!

Love the outfit- and I have that vintage caramel colored chair! Mine had to be reupholstered in a lovely green velvet because it was quite beaten up. Got it at an estate sale!

I hate when you get stuck inside and then suddenly it's so very hard to leave the house. Very cute outfit indeed.

Jessica said...

Oh me oh my you look as adorable and lovely as anything!!! I think this is my new favorite outfit of yours (amongst a zillion others...) from the colors to those perfect, perfect shorts!! I'm so glad you got them, they really look ah-mazing on you! Oh dear, and your room is the dreamiest thing I've ever seen, even though I tell you that nearly everyday! Time to get those taps shoesies out!!!

Aya Smith said...

Don't I know those woes :( I think there is no pleasing me though, becuase I can never work outside the home again...

There is something too perfect about this outfit, and you look utterly gorgeous as always :)

a good pair of shorts.

Ack- tell me about it! I haven't found a new job yet, since leaving Chicago, so I've been working on my Etsy shop to fill in the void, time-wise (definitely not financially!), and it takes me close to an hour to package things the way I like them. I blame the typewriter.

And that bow is the sweetest lil thing.

jayne said...

You look so cute, and the little bow is the final touch!

St├ęphanie said...

So nice !

corrie said...

I know how you feel! I've been unemployed for 3 months and some days at home I just feel CRAZY! The grocery store is often the most exciting part of my day. I suggest trying to get out at least once each day. It's funny when you have a job in an office/store/whatever all you ever wanna do is go home, and when you're at home every day all you wanna do is go out.

You're inspiring me to get my butt in gear and start an Etsy shop, at least that's something to keep busy with!
