That’s Like Hypnotizing Chickens

Lollerskates. I am clearly facing directly into the noon day sun in these pictures. I was trying so hard not to squint, I swear, but despite my best efforts you are being treated to the Squinty McGee series today.

Oh Hai thur Squinty McGee.

Suz asked what this jacket looks likes zipped up (minus a bulky hoodie as before) so this is for her. Also I might wear this jacket every day this week. Don’t put it past me. We’ll see.

A question for all the other ladies who scored these boots. I’m actually having a problem with them. The right boots seems to have something weird going on under the foot bed. Like arch support, but smack in the middle of the shoe. It’s painful, and it’s weird. I tried prying the insole out but was unable. Anyone else experience this? Do you think a shoe repair place could help or are they a lost cause? I will be SO SAD if they are a lost cause and might very well replace them. They are perfect otherwise.

It’s almost balmy outside today, it’s really nice. But fate is making up for it. The heat is broken in my office and instead of heating, it’s blowing cold air. It is downright frigid.

That dress is lovely! That jacket is so flattering zipped up - it makes your waist look positively wee!

Goober said...

Adorable dress. Hope you get your boot issue figured out - they really are cute.

Ooh, that jacket looks great zipped! It's really flattering, like futurelint already said. ;)

I love the look on your face in the first picture... it's like you just heard a joke and are really trying not to laugh.

I was all excited for you that you have sun, but I'm sorry to hear the office heater malfunction is making up for that. :(

You don't look even remotely squinty to me. Just thrilled to be wearing your awesome jacket yet again!

Audi said...

I love this look, and the jacket is so you. Also, I have that same Lucky handbag and I adore it.

ANA said...

LOL! You don't really look squinty to me!! Awesome boots - I wish I could buy shoes at Target, but they don't carry much in size 5. So frustrating!

Suz said...

Ok so clearly that jacket is made of WIN. Very cute both ways, but especially flattering zipped up.

I love the print of that dress. When I saw it I thought of Tenessee, it sort of screams bluegrass to me. And I looooooove bluegrass.

The dress jacket combo looks great. I hope you can figure out your boot issue, it would be a shame to let them go to waste.

The day I got mine I slapped a pair of dr scholls arch supports in them. It's a half inner sole so I doesn't affect the fit and it's hard on one side and squishy on the other. You can get them at any drugstore and it's worth the 12 bucks!

Love the jacket: it looks great both zipped and unzipped! And i really love denim jackets over floral dresses: it's such a beautiful and care-free look :)

La Historiadora de Moda said...

I really don't think you look squinty at all! I am a big fan of the print on this dress.

Academichic said...

I think this may be my first time commenting but I've been visiting your blog for a while and really love it. This week I'm particularly loving all the ways you're wearing that awesome jacket! It's great to see other bloggers who actually rewear their favorite clothes! ;)

Shut up. I LOVE the boots.

FashionAddict said...

This is so pretty, and I LOVE that jacket. I am enjoying seeing how many different ways you can wear it!

Sheila said...

Adorable outfit - love the dress and jacket with the boots!

Lollerskates- ha!

I agree- you don't look squinty so much as giggly. I like the jacket zipped- it has a really great shape.
