Cheery Gray

How do you add a bit of cheer to gray?

How about a bit of yellow?

It’s been dreadfully dreary here in NC lately.  Finally, today the sun came out for a bit.  Thank my stars, it’s going to be much more bearable tomorrow.

I can’t take day after day of the rain.  I need some sunshine in my life people! Much like this outfit would have been kind of blah…gray on gray on gray…if it weren’t for a bit of color from my cardigan.

I think it works, anyway.

I have a love hate relationship with pants.

…mainly because I’m short, curvy, and don’t have a typical thigh to butt to waist ratio.

Shopping for pants is almost as fun as shopping for a bathing suit. These pants from Banana Republic Factory Store is one of my favorite pairs.  It’s a wool blend, which is perfect for winter, they’re flattering, and they never need an iron (most important).

I’d rather eat dirt than iron.

You think I’m joking, but I would eat a little bit of dirt every morning rather than iron pants. Fact.
