I love everything about this outfit. I mean, I might feel a little silly wearing it but I would totally want to. And if I lived in New York, say, I think I definitely would wear it.

Now this is a little over the top but shiny it is. And if we are going over the top then I rather like this over the topness.

And what is shinier than the sun sparkling on the sea. Can you see the mountains hiding in the background too? This is a quiet and calming kind of shiny if ever there was such a thing (and there is as you can see). That is the kind of shiny I am after today.
I was hoping to bring you a lot more pictures and maybe even way better ones but it would just happen that one of my littles was throwing up oreos last night. I know you probably didn’t want to know that but somehow I just feel better talking about it (you know how this is).
And how magic is this… he just was off cleaning his car in the sink and came up to me and said, “Mom, look at how shiny this is!” See I knew there would be some shiny. Even if it comes by way of a 4 year old boy and a matchbox car!

    My staff and I have been torn over whether we want to keep our disco ball in the office or not, & I think this post might have just tipped the balance towards yes…

    Oh, darling. You just gave me a bit of calm with that last pic. Thank you so much. Yesterday and today were really tough for me. Sometimes something as simple as a picture can relax us and calm the breath. I guess thats why they say they are worth a thousand words.
