They say you’re supposed to dress for the job you want, not the job you have. Well, I had no job to go to today, so instead I dressed for the fruit I was hoping to find at the local farmers’ markets. I’m the proud owner of a new juicer, which my awesome parents found at a yard sale – never opened! – and have become quite the fan of fresh squeezed juice. I’d reached the end of my supply and was contemplating what I could make with two lemons and some parsley, so to the market I went. While the colors of my skirt might imply that I was looking for both regular raspberries and the blue raspberries used to flavor Slushies worldwide, I was hoping for raspberries and blueberries.
Take a minute with me to admire this skirt Millie made. A few years back I went to the frozen north for a visit, and in the span of two days (two!), Millie made me this incredible wrap skirt without even using a pattern. It has the most delicious weight, yet is so cool and comfortable to wear. Plus, it swishes when I walk. Total triple threat skirt.
Here’s my new favorite picture of myself. My camera’s timer suddenly switched to glacier mode, and was taking forever to flash. My utter disgust at being made to wait for my fresh raspberry grape juice is palpable. Either that, or the fruit fermented and this is what I look like drunk.
You know what does make me happy, though? Musical stairs.
I grew up going to the Science Museum in Boston and remember running up and down their stairs again and again. I keep arguing for them in our museum. Or my apartment. Whichever.
