Way back when (a double post)

Yes, I am this pale.  I will get paler as the winter comes.

I try to keep up to date on here, but I just didn't manage with these photos.  Last Friday, I wore a simple grey t-shirt and black pants. 
New shoes are coming.  At least the web says they're coming.
 I'm having an issue finding pants lately, because what I want are semi-dressy drawstring or elastic-band style pants.  I don't want zippers.  I want pants that flow, that are as comfy as pajamas, but that look pretty and nice.  Without looking like I'm an old lady.  I need to hit up the local hippie clothing stores, maybe get some Thai fisherman style pants.

On Sunday, I had to sing three times during church.  With the Praise and Worship team, for Offertory with a friend, and with the choir.   I needed a certain level of comfy combined with a certain level of pretty.  Luckily I had this super long triple strand of faux pearls from a sale to double wrap around my neck for some sophistication points.  (In my head, I need lots of points.)
+ 10 Sophistication points!
And yes, I rocked a different pair of black pants.  I have pants that aren't black.  One of them (the gray Gilligan and O'Malley) I even wear!  You can't tell, but I'm wearing my black sequined flats for fun.
And a final bit of cuteness (no, not Ellie), Jen and I in Sunday finery for a new Birnam Grove picture on Etsy.

Pretty sisters, pretty jewelry, pretty clothes.  PRETTY!


  1. You look just like Ellie and your mom in that second pic of you in the gray and black. What cute genes. :)

  2. You sisters are adorable!
    And I was just hearing from someone on how great Thai fisherman pants are :)

  3. I totally understand the paleness comment - I am also on of the "albinos" :))) But it's pretty cute when you start loving it - I'm still tanned from the summer holidays, but soon I'll be a Snow White :)) I love the second necklace :)
    I'd be glad if you found the time to visit my blog - if you like it (and I hope you will), feel free to comment and follow of course (Who would have thought, huh? :)))

  4. You guys are so sweet! Usually I feel fairly grody next to Jen, but we look equally cute in that pic. I might even get it framed!

  5. I think you look cuter in that picture! You're all smiling and relaxed and you can tell I'm using every brain cell I have (and stressed about it!) to get us both in the shot and not drop my camera! lol
