Sunday Styles no. 8

Remember that thing I was saying about not taking my clothing too seriously all the time? Well, one way to do it is with color like last weekend, but another way to do it is with graphics. Some of you may recall my sheep sweater from Sunday Styles no. 2 which I'm still completely obsessed with. Who knew I had such a kinship with sheep?

Well, guess what? There's another animal I feel a kinship to...which is probably much more obvious...what with Mr. Merlin and all. Yes, I'm talking about dogs. Oh, how I love a canine companion...and what better way to show my love than with this look!

I Double Dog Dare You...to rock this look! (Not really...I just enjoyed that pun.)

The only thing I'm really sad about is the fact that I'm not skilled enough to make a sweater that has Merlin on it. However, I love me a French Bulldog, so why not pay homage to them? Merlin isn't pleased, by the way...and from the looks of it, the French Bulldog on my sweater isn't all that pleased either...but I digress. Hey, I'm happy about it, so that's all that matters right? Since I'm the one wearing the damn outfit.

Can't you tell by my posture just how enthused I am about this outfit?

Oh, and the glasses. So, you may not know this about me (but now you will), I'm blind. Ok, ok, being dramatic again. Not blind, but highly visually impaired. Without contacts or glasses, things get blurry once they're over a foot away from my face. It's a little horrifying. Don't think I haven't run the Cast Away (starring Tom Hanks) scenario in my head a million times. I know if I was stranded on a desert island and didn't have my glasses on me, I'd be screwed. I also know that if the apocalypse ever happens, the first thing I'm doing is raiding a LensCrafters for every contact in the place that has my prescription and ever bottle of saline I can carry. (Shopping carts would probably get involved.)

I'm totally getting off the subject here.

The glasses. They're mens glasses...I prefer mens glasses to women's glasses. I think it has something to do with the size of my head.

So, yes, today's outfit is a fun one. French Bulldog, bright pant, glasses for a change, and my trusty loafers. A little bit of layering, but not too much for this weirdly warm LA weather and thin enough to throw a coat over in the evening.

It's actually the perfect outfit to go run around and do errands in. Some post-Turkey Day sale rummaging, anyone? We tried to go to the mall yesterday and we didn't get passed our late lunch. We went straight back to the car and drove home. If you had been there, you would've done the same. One word: Madness.

Well, a busy Sunday awaits me, so I gotta run, but hope you all get a chance to have some fun with your outfits today too. Have a great rest of the weekend! I'm off to go fight the good fight on the battlefield of holiday shopping. Wish me luck! If you don't hear from me, tell my husband I love him.
