Coral & brown two ways

As you can probably tell, I’ve been pretty unmotivated as far as the blog goes. I’ve been trying to get through a rough patch & keep my head down to get past Mother’s Day. All of these first holidays are hard to deal with after someone you love passes away, Mother’s Day being especially hard because I no longer have a mother here on planet earth.

I’ve been stressed out and overwhelmed at work. Breaking down left and right. Can’t ever seem to catch up anymore due to the extra things we are doing behind the scenes to keep things going after Covid19. I’m pretty much done with it all.

I’m sure some of you are at that point as well. Whether your staying at home, or out in the working world right now. Just done with it.

I don’t really have any new and exciting outfits to post, however a friend gave me a bag of clothes that I thought I’d pick something out of to feature. This post is all about the color theme: coral & dark chocolate brown.

First look:

Coral sweater & coral t-shirt, given to me, chocolate brown capris, old, The Loft; high heel sandals, old; Betsey Johnson Cat ear sunglasses, old; Shell necklace, old, from Papua New Guinea.

Second look featuring the same color pattern:

Coral sweater, given to me; dark brown pants, old, leopard print ballet flats, Ross; Betsey Johnson cat ear sunglasses, old; shell and seed necklace, Papua New Guinea, brown metallic DKNY watch, old.

And if I’m doing photos near my home, the cats want to be involved. Or maybe not. Perhaps I decide they are too cute to not include in the post somehow. Look at those fluffy furbabies! The one in the first look is Sheba, and the one in the second look is Isis. Best accessories ever, amirite? (Minus the claws when they want to get away.)

Wearing O’ the green

Happy St Patrick’s day, lovely people! I hope you’re all wearing green today so you don’t get pinched. I know I am. My poor cats however, have no green to wear. But I’m the only one here with them today so I think they’re safe from getting pinched by anyone. Ha!

This top is a lovely shade of jade green. Definitely enough green not to get pinched on St Patrick’s day.

But why do we go around pinching people not wearing green on St Patrick’s day anyway? Seriously?

Apparently this tradition was started in America, not Ireland. It was said that wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns who would pinch everyone they could see – those not wearing green. Wearing green made you invisible to the leprechauns. People began pinching others that didn’t wear green to remind them that leprechauns could sneak up and pinch anyone not wearing green.

Okay. Whatever.

I totally remember trying to sneak green in where it wasn’t visible in elementary school. Like, “I have green on my underwear!” I believe in elementary school if someone pinched you for not wear green, you could punch them back. Hahaha. I was pretty shy growing up, so I really don’t remember actually punching anyone back, but I remember it was a thing. Ah. The dorkiness of being a kid.

I think we are finally pulling out of our cold spell here in Oregon, but last weekend when we took these photos, there were still bits of snow on the ground and it felt like winter out. This weekend we are finally warming up and it feels like spring is on the way. I hope I didn’t just jinx it by saying it. (If it snows tomorrow, it’s my fault for saying spring is finally coming.)
