Holiday style on a blustery day

Has it ever gotten windy and blustery in Oregon lately. Whew! We went outside yesterday for a photo shoot and almost got blown away. So much for styling my hair before we went… The wind chill factor was making it several degrees colder than it actually was outside, so we didn’t last long before skedaddling back indoors where we finished the photo shoot in front of the Christmas tree with two fluffy kitties. One of whom seemed to be sitting just far enough away that we never got good photos of her. But the lazy fat cat, Bathsheba – otherwise known as Sheba – cooperated somewhat for some photos.

Not sure how all the fashion bloggers keep going all winter… More indoor photo shoots? Move to a warmer climate? I must know your secrets to winter fashion photo shoots! Hahaha.

Just know that the jacket is faux fur, the cat fur on my cat and satin skirt is real. Which the cats like to shed all over the place so I can be fashionably furry in an animal friendly way. Le sigh. I should appreciate that fact more than I do…

Blue and gray on a fine fall day

This past weekend this fine fall weather was amazing! Just a bit cool in the mornings and evenings, but perfect the middle of the day. Sunday we stopped at the park on our way home from church and played in the leaves. So much fun! I felt good for two whole days after my round of physical therapy, chiro, acupuncture and massage, and then the pain started creeping back in on the third day. I was jumping and throwing leaves and having fun because I still felt pretty good.

After I got home, I was worried my back would start hurting really bad because of it, but the pain was just creeping slowly back in like it had the last weekend after my round of appointments, so I don’t think I was any worse for the wear after playing in the park. May as well have had fun with those fall leaves while I still could. The rain is coming back again and they are going to be wet and slimy now. Not so much fun to play with any more… Wah, wah, wah. And Monday’s round of appointments didn’t seem to give me as much relief as the ones the end of last week. So, play while you can, I say!

 

Fall fun!
