I'm not all that capable of coherent thought right now. Maybe it's the sleep thing. T woke up at 1:30 this morning to eat, and I had the toughest time falling back to sleep. I stared at the clock for over an hour. I had a blog post in my head. It was about even numbers. It was witty and clever. I don't remember anything about it other than it was about even numbers. A lack of sleep will do that to you.
So you're stuck with this.
Let's see...what to blog about.
Yesterday, I did a little internet research into "my colors." They are not blush and bashful. Shockingly. Have you ever done this? Analyzed what colors you should and shouldn't wear based on your coloring? I had not. Anyway, it was kind of fascinating. I am apparently a Cool Winter, which I never, ever would have guessed just based on the name, but it fits. Me, Brooke Shields, Jennifer Connelly, and the late great Elizabeth Taylor could all totally share clothes because we're all Cool Winters. After this little experiment, I looked at my 33 articles of clothing, and I realized I'm not terribly far off track. My wardrobe revolves around blues and grays and purples, so I'm pretty good there. Apparently I need to adios my green cardigan and my gold sweater, but I'll wait until I find what I want to replace the green sweater, and the gold sweater needs to stick around for Vandy games.
Speaking of replacing clothes, I am currently fascinated by this and this. Sometimes I enjoy reading things that sound like someone wrote down my inner thought process. Alas, I can't get on board with Rachel's list of stores, but that's just me. I'm currently pretty loyal to Garnet Hill for sweaters and dresses and J.Jill for jeans (the butt never sags!! ladies, you know what I'm talking about!) I also hit LL Bean for sweaters and pieces to layer. They tend to wash and wear well, though I've had a couple of pieces that the neckline gets all discombobulated. Besides, walking into Gap or Banana Republic or J. Crew sounds like walking into Hell for the most part.
What about you? Where do you shop? Do you go trendy or more classic? Do you know your colors and go by the rules? Do you think Kate Middleton can really bring hose back into fashion? Do you think someone will take a pot shot at her if she does? There are so many questions.
