IT'S COLD IN THE SHADOWS

12-29-09 1

Don't let that sunshine and those perfect shadows (including that of my tripod) deceive you.

If I look like I'm in pain, it's because I am.  I literally risked life and limb for these photos.  About ten minutes after getting my gloves back on, my fingers were still throbbing in pain.  Twentyish degrees cold, but totally worth it.

Today, I'm sporting more non-denim work wear, courtesy of my husband for Christmas.  Before giving him all sorts of props for his great taste (hehe), let me clarify that I did the shopping, he did the wrapping.  I've finally invested in a pair of high-waisted pants that actually fit.  Don't worry though, my way too big pair won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

I only wish I had worn different shoes.  John did flex his style muscle this morning by voicing his preference for my blue shoes over these.  I think I was hooked on wearing the studs or something and disregarded his loving input.

  2. Nice investment. I feel like gray pants are the perfect staple for work...and good call on the price adjustment. I need to do that more often.

    I can see why you went with the studded grey shoes, it all matches :p

  5. Love those pants on you!!! It gives such a nice Katherin Hepburn feel. I was going to buy them myself, actually, but I was afraid I wouldn't be able to wear them in heels.

  7. Those pants are lovely. I think you can leave the gloves on next time! Actually, I think some of those short (wrist length) vintage leather gloves would be perfect for many of your outfits.....

    And then no risking limb for us! :-)

  10. Yup, I think the key with high-waisted, wide-leg pants is to wear them with a heel. This coming from a woman who has been tromping around in combat boots for two days because of the snow, but I'm just sayin'. Maybe wear them with a heel when the weather warms up. :)

  20. Honey Bunny - It was 20 degrees farenheit, but the wind is wicked! I would cry if it was 20 below!

    Emily - I soooo wish I could wear heels with these. I agree, it would look better. But alas, I've had to shelve the heels in favor of a healthy back. So, I'm trying to find the perfect pair of flats to make it work. Wish me luck!

    Bianca - I'm TOTALLY getting wrist gloves now! I think I actually have a pair of my grandmother's. I may just carry them around for picture purposes :)

    Thank you all so much for your input! You're the best!
