What I Wore, Thanks!

To my usual trepidation about posting What I Wore, I've added concern about having foolishly invited criticism through yesterday's post. After all, if I can be so picky about a mere loose end . . .

But if you re-read that post, I hope you'll see that I wasn't so much cavilling at the finish (or lack thereof) of that scarf as I was trying to puzzle out my spontaneous, unguarded response.

And as I suspected, your comments on the matter helped me sort out what I was responding to -- thank you so much! So I'm going to keep trusting to your generously understanding natures and offer up Wednesday's outfit, with and without my leather jacket, which I think works well with these heels.

Dress: Kenneth Cole, 2 years old; black Mary-Jane Tsubo heels, also 2 years old; Chan Luu chalcedony & silver necklace, 5 or 6 years old and a real favourite.
Jacket: Mackage

Have I mentioned how much I like dressing in dresses? So easy to look pulled together (and this one's a knit, so it's comfy as well). If I weren't wearing this with the leather jacket, I'd throw a lightweight Grandpa cardigan over top -- purple, black, or grey, for example. This dress also works with that Smythe jacket I bought this past spring -- grey with metallic threads.

Pater's getting much better at snapping these shots, and I seem to be relaxing a bit, but I do wonder what the neighbours must think of my posturing. Thank goodness, I have the most wonderful neighbours in the world, on both sides, so whatever they think, they'll continue to be kind . . .

We were to have Thanksgiving here on the island this weekend, with 3 of our 4 home, along with their partners and our granddaughter. But they took one look at the crowds anticipated on BC Ferries' busiest weekend of the year and decided to stay in Vancouver -- so Mahomet's heading to the Mountain. Our apartment oven is on the small side for a turkey, but on the plus side, the limitations of the setting free us up from some of the expectations, and we always have a congenial time there crowded around the smaller table. And though I would dearly have loved the house-ful here, I'm secretly relieved that the visiting will be limited to the meal, as I'm taking 80+ essays along for marking.

So to all my Canadian readers, Happy Turkey Day, and may you have much to be Thankful for. And to readers elsewhere, have a lovely weekend as well along with my Thanks for your welcome company.
