Casual Friday

Sweater, J.Crew. Shorts & blouse, Banana Republic. Tights, Hue. Wellies, Hunter.

It's hard out there for a blogger. After picking out an outfit and grooming and styling myself to perfection (my back won't shave itself, you know), I have to find a nice, secluded area for a mini photo-shoot. This is where Mother Nature comes at me with rain and fog and Man throws in Daylight Saving Time. So every day, I've got until 4:30 pm to grab my photographer and get 'er done.

In retrospect, I should have worn more color. A gray outfit on a gray day is a travesty, a far cry from the Hawaiian shirts (in)famously worn on Casual Fridays. I propose that Vancouver stores be banned from selling gray apparel on account of frequent condensation and precipitation. From now on, Vancouverites should aim at combating the weather by strutting around in red raincoats, wisteria wellies, and ultramarine umbrellas. Furthermore, the only Rain City residents allowed to blend into the background via a gray uniform should be soldiers, for improved efficiency. Of course, burglars might follow their example, then sleazy men looking to grope and dash and before you can say How dare you?, camouflaged pooches will be carelessly pooping all over town. All right, gray stays.

It seems that rainy weather makes your imagination thrive!It's a great outfit again and maybe with a little help of photoshop the colors would look better!What do you think of my outfit?I have mixed feelings.

Just over a week ago we had a very grey day...and I wore almost all grey on that day...I don't know what is is with wearing grey on grey days!

And yes you should definitely answer my quiestions!

Did I ever tell you I wore Hawaiian shirts regularly as a young teenager?

These are the things I regret.

(Nice galoshes.)

Angie - Already Photoshopped, this is the best I could come up with without being (too) deceitful.
Natasha- Will do!
Metaghost - I would pay to see that. Does your mom have some Hawaiian photo albums stashed away?

I'm sure she probably keeps one in every room to dissuade fashionable criminals from invading.

i love the peek of green we get from underneath your layers!

I Love your umbrella! And your outfit may be grey in color, but definitely not in style! (did that even make sense? haha)
And I totally agree about the blogging bit, I never knew how hard it was until I started blogging!

That umbrella is so cute! I personally love grey, so I think this outfit is great, especially with the pop of green under your sweater.
