Lunch with the Man during a work week always turns out to be a blast. We frequent an indian restaurant in downtown, order the ‘executive’ (2 of those please, I’m not a light weight), and sandwich dahl and cilantro rice between fresh naan. Yummers!
This time I had an alternative agenda: a quick photo shot. Wiggling in front of a brick wall, thinking of Diana Ross, while the Man snaps is typical Charles and Whitney. I’m sure it’s the sleeves that keep me rockin’.

During my last trip to New York, I was in dire need of a wool hat. When you’re freezing your mind starts going crazy listing off everything you need to survive. Anyway, I seem to never have the funds for what I want. Perhaps it is an excuse for me to make something to share with all you lovely people. I really do enjoy sharing with you.
So here’s a simple hat for you to make. I grabbed an old straw hat and scraps of wool from a skirt my grandmother gave me. Sharing is in the blood.
Come back tomorrow for the Here’s the tutorial. Drop a line if you’re diggin’ this.

90% of the time, I’m wearing my go to flats for everyday outfits. For me, flats are simple without being overbearing, comfortable without looking lazy.
Don’t get me wrong I own a few pairs of heels, but I rarely wear them and I always find myself wishing I had somewhere to go in them. I admire those high steppin’ ladies in the mall with 3.5 inches of ‘stackage’ and the strut to match. If only the higher the heel, the better the sashay were true.
Perhaps I’ll challenge myself to wear more heels, other than boots, this fall/winter. My wardrobe sure deserves a bit of a lift. Although my feet may feel differently.
How do you wear your heels, not at all or every chance you get?
