Turquoise and Leopard

April 08, 2014

Smiling... not smiling!  Sometimes you think your smiling when in fact you look at the pictures to find it's not quite there!  I promise I thought I smiled in all these pictures but when I got home there was only a half smile in a couple of them.  I have no idea what I was thinking other than I was trying to not get blown away with the high winds. Ha!  We enjoyed lunch on the Plaza  last Sunday afternoon and this is what I wore.  It was sunny but the winds brought a chill still.  I am so glad I opted for the long sleeve sweater.  The nice weather brought out a lot of people and the sidewalks and patios were full.  It is so good to see life form again after the winter that would never end.

Oh finally... a smile!!!  Creature of habit that I am... we enjoyed sushi again.  I promise we are switching it up next time and we are going to try a new to me restaurant so I can mark this of my list here!  I think it's more lazy than wanting to try a new place. Either way we are definitely making a change...promise!  Speaking of change, I am giving a lot of thought to moving.  I know it takes a lot of planning, and there is so much that has to happen before there can even be a sign in my yard.  But in reality the time is drawing closer for us to finally take the next move... Kinfolk said "Jed move away from there"
Said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

Hills, that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars.

Ha, sorry, my love of corny 70's shows flashed thru right there!  No California isn't where we want to be, but we don't think the Midwest is either.  Its a process and it will take time, but I have to start vocalizing it to really grasp it I think.  I remember moving to Kansas 9 years ago and building my home.  It was stressful but I am so thankful I did it.  So if you hear me mention moving a few more times and start asking a few questions about certain locations... bear with me!  I'm not leaving ya, heavens no, I have grown to love you and appreciate you all way too much for that.   we're moving together!

    1. It's a neutral in my world! ;) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This totally happens to me, too- I'll shoot outfit photos and make a kinda-smiling-but-not-too-big face, and then I'll review the photos and it looks like someone just told me Santa didn't exist (or something equally traumatic- like Nordie's closing).

    Love the pops of turquoise in this outfit, Lisa! Spring has finally arrived in KC. :)


    1. If Nordie's closed there would be more than frowning pictures!! Spring has arrived! xo

  3. I learned early on that the camera doesn't always translate smiles well. So basically if you over-smile it feels weird but looks better on camera!

    1. Haha.... when I over smile I get wrinkly eyes! The joys of aging!! xo

  4. Great outfit and beautiful colour combo! Love it!

  5. Such a cute outfit! I live in leopard print! I live in KC as well and I totally hear you about moving. This KC winter was too much for me. I was dreaming of San Diego weather all winter! :-)

  6. Great outfit. I'm CRAVING a pair of those leopard Tory flats
