Mary Tyler Moore I Ain't

Today I wore three pieces of jewelry that I borrowed from Maria and one of them might be the Rock It Challenge Piece.

First, I wore a bracelet made in India. It appears to be bone (or faux bone) set in bronze. It's hinged and helt closed with a bronze nail. I have no idea about it's age.

Second, I wore a pair of clip on earrings. They are cream balls with brown speckles, with another ball dropped below. I think they are plastic. Again, I have no guess as to age.

Third, I wore a cream multi-strand necklace. Maria and I think this is made out of shell. Maybe from the 80s.

Are any of these the challenge piece from Maria?

What I Rocked While Seeing State of Play:


Rand told me I looked like Mary Tyler Moore this morning. Apparantly it's b/c I am wearing brown and "they wore a lot of brown then." Ha!
  • brown slacks (George/Walmart)
  • pale aqua tank (no tag)
  • aqua/brown plaid empire tunic (Style&Co.)
  • brown cardi (AB Studio via Kohls)
  • brown flats (Madeline Stewart via Ross)
  • aqua purse (via Kohls)
  • cream clip in earrings, bone bracelet, and shell necklace (borrowed from Maria)

What I Ate While Ignoring the Cookies 3 Feet Away:


A coworker bought a bunch of cookies and spread them out right next to me. Ack! Luckily I had picked this baby up during my lunch break when I discovered a bunch of new bard that I wanted to try. I didn't have very high hopes, but man this was GOOD! 200 calories of almondy goodness. It reminded me of marzipan. Delish. And it stuck with me pretty well.

I ate Which Wich for dinner prior to seeing a movie with an old college friend. No pic.

Total for the Day: 1650 calories, 7 glasses of water, no exercise

You look super pretty in today's photo. I don't know if it's the make-up, or hairstyle, or if the colors of your outfit are really flattering or the cut. Either way, great outfit! You look fantastic!

You look very nice and fresh today, love the blue top.

I usually just "lurk" (I hear that is what they call it) on your blog, but today I had to comment because I LOVE this outfit! I think it is the proportions, you just look lovely :)

Does Rand dislike brown? My husband can't stand it. He keeps threatening that a tragic accident will befall my brown slacks ;)

Beth said...

Love the brown and aqua and LOVE(!!!!) the bracelet!

Thanks, Sharon. I think part of it might be the pose. I felt very so-so all day.

Charlotte & Beth - thanks! (and I adore the bracelet too. Help me convince Maria to let me have it.)

Kate - I'm so glad you de-lurked. It's nice to "meet" you! Thanks so much!

Struggler - I read Rand your comment and asked him. His reply "Yeah. Pretty much hate brown. Calling you Mary Tyler Moore wasn't a compliment." Ha! I love that he is honest with me. It makes all the compliments more real, since Iknow they are genuine.

Great point, a genuine comment from a loved one is a very nice thing!

Tina said...

Sher - thanks! me too. Now I need Maria to let me keep it.
