this has become a new favourite outfit. in part, it is because i love the shapes of the individual pieces and the shape they create when together. in part, it is because i love the fabric the clothes are made of ... french terry. in part, it is because i love the colour of the clothes ... ash. then there are the shoes. i call them my frankenstein shoes. clunky and chunky ... my favourite kind of shoes. yep ... definitely a new favourite outfit.

a friend of mine recently told me that she has been having trouble getting dressed in the morning.  i said, "me too!" she then told me that she thought that having trouble getting dressed in the morning meant that she was tired of her look and needed a makeover. i said that i thought that having trouble getting dressed in the morning was just symptomatic of yo-yo weather. maybe she's right. maybe i'm right.

the beauty of some clothes is that when you wear them around horses all day long and the smell of horses permeate their every fibre they can be easily laundered to rid them of their horse smell.

it isn't too often that i lose something. luckily, on the few occasions i have lost something, it hasn't been something of significant monetary (or, for that matter, non-monetary) value to me. still, no matter the value to me of the thing lost, i have always felt somewhat violated by the loss. a piece of me is out there ... without my consent ... against my wishes. i don't know if the thing is safe and in good hands ... or not. i would like to think that everything that i have ever lost has found a good and deserving home and one in need of the thing more than me.

strange thing happened to me on the way home the other day. it was after nightfall and i was walking. just as i started crossing a street, a car started to make a left turn onto the street. i stopped ... of course ... to avoid being run over. but so did the car ... to avoid running me over. hanging out of the back windows of the car were two individuals in guy fawkes masks. i got an apology from the guy fawkes closest to me ... for scaring me.  not with his (and his friend's) appearance but with the close call. of course, all i could think of ... with their masks and my buzz cut ... was "v for vendetta".

as autumn marches on and winter starts approaching, i may be adding layers of clothing, but i decided that it was time to take the hair off! i started thinking about a buzz cut last summer (summer 2015, to be exact). more than a year later, i did it. this isn't my first time with a buzz cut. but it feels different this time. i am definitely owning it! now, of course, i will need an appropriate hat to get through the cooler late autumn days, winter and (even) the beginning of next spring!

while i may have opted to wear blue on this day, there was nothing blue about me that day. finally (finally), the heat and humidity had bid my fair city a fond farewell, leaving me to embrace a cooler day. and embrace it i did. there was undeniably a spring in my step as i walked to work in the morning, a refreshingly coolish breeze blowing in my face.

something old (the clothes). something new (the shoes). nothing borrowed. and, nothing blue. the day that i wore this was forecast as the last day of (unbearably) hot and (unbearably) humid weather. i kept my fingers (and everything else that i could cross) crossed all day that the following day would bear this forecast out.

when i was purchasing these trousers at the beginning of spring ... what seems such a long time ago but isn't really ... it didn't occur to me that a version of them ... in fact an identical but for the colour version ... was already sitting in my closet. when i finally realized this ... when i brought new trousers home ... i wasn't overly distraught. i love the style and grey trousers (the new ones) are not red trousers (the ones that were already in my possession)!

i got caught in a sudden downpour on my way home from work. i was without an umbrella. in the morning, i was optimistic that, even though heavy rain was forecast, it would not rain when i was outside, so i left the umbrella at home. i got soaked. this outfit got soaked. i am soooo glad that rundholz black label clothes wash and dry so well.

another new pair of rundholz shoes have made their way to my home! unlike the previous pair ... too "fall-y" to wear until it feels like fall outside ... this pair i can wear immediately. i can't wait to show them off! my experience buying rundholz shoes is so bittersweet. on the one hand, i would kill (well maybe not kill ... exactly) to have access to all styles available each season. on the other hand, i am grateful that i don't have access to all styles available each season ... for how would i ever choose!
