More J. Crew

I really like the J. Crew-inspired trend of making shorts dressier. It's perfect for a climate like ours, where jeans can be too hot as early as April sometimes.
Really loving this very classic look with button down and pearls; I WILL be wearing!

I spent many years looking for short-sleeved cardigans, and they're finally out there. Again for this climate - perfect! The one I wore to rags was a great bathing suit cover up and buffer against overly aggressive air conditioning. And of course with the dressy shorts!

Recession Party

Something gave me an idea for a recession party. Maybe it's the discussion some friends and I had today about the sad state of the economy, and how we're all trying to cut back and don't see an end in sight anytime soon.

So, while I was cleaning up the kitchen tonight, I started thinking it would be fun to have a few friends over (dining in is the new dining out). We would serve ramen noodles, Kraft mac 'n cheese and beanie-weenies, of course on paper plates. The invitation would request casual attire at least 2 or 3 years old.

What do you think? Is this already being done? What are some other "frugal" dishes we could serve?

Late to the Party

I know, I know, this poster has become totally ubiquitous in the blogosphere, but I still wanted me one! I love the hot pink on my eggplant powder room wall. Funky, no? The funny thing is I hung it a week ago and I think my husband still hasn't seen it! I think we'll keep it that way lest he make me move it to my closet!
