"Hmmm," you may be thinking to yourself, "Self, doesn't Bustle live in Houston?  And isn't it JULY?"

Indeed.  All the clues are there.  I'm wearing my cute summer daisy pants from Old Navy (these are awfully close, and they are on sale!)  And I've got my $5 rose gold flip flops from Rack Room Shoes - why are these the most comfortable?  And why didn't I buy two more pairs?

 And look - I'm wearing a Poppin'...

It's been kind of a splurge-y week in the Bustle house.  Older got a Christmas Llama sweater on sale for next year.  Younger was pleased and surprised to get my Okay on a banana print shirt.  Both boys declined to be photographed, so we'll just go with my splurges then.

Splurges usually start with a "quick stop" at Shopaholic Sanctuary to see Diane.  Only this time I was not kidding myself that there would...

Happy Friday, everyone!    

Friday Faves makes it sound like it's my regular thing.  I know it's not, but it is Friday, and I have a few new favorite things to share, so I'm going with that.

 First of all, photo credits to my Younger Son, who greatly enjoyed playing the role of Real Photographer.  He was cavorting all over the place, telling me to turn this way, no, the other way, and explaining that it's b...

I'm texting with my friend, Kathleen:

    "I need an engaging title about earrings"

Years ago I called on Kathleen for help creating a birthday invitation for Younger Son's 1st birthday.  The theme was Hawaiian, and I had the beginning:

"Hula to the Left...

Hula to the Right...

Younger's turning ONE on Saturday night!"

But then I was stumped.  Kathleen emailed the following to me:

"Eating and Munching

And Drinking wit...

So, I'm sitting at the Clip Joint waiting for my son to get his hair cut when I notice the woman next to me.  Rather, I notice her bracelets.  Now, I could have kept my admiration to myself.  But I have never, ever liked something silently in my life.  So, I pipe up, "Ooh, I like your bracelets.  Where did you get them?" See, if you admire stuff quietly, you remain ignorant; not everything is an obvious Google sear...

 This was actually my Easter outfit, but I’ve been slacking with putting it up.  My Easter this year was pretty low-key and casual, although if you’d like to see Easter done right, I recommend this photo of Bustle and her adorable family, in a hat and everything!

See?  Judy Garland would have no worries singing a song about that hat.  But I digress…  I spent my Easter Sunday at aerials class, followed by a lei...

I always love it when people manage to mix prints successfully.  To me, that’s a higher level of fashion kung-fu than I am usually confident enough for, but I think I nailed it here.  Of all mixed-print looks, I can’t resist stripes mixed with florals, especially when combined with a leather jacket.  It’s my perfect ideal of the tough but feminine, and slightly French vibe that I often aspire to, but probably only...

So...it's winter.  Shouldn't I be wearing cozy sweaters?  Cute hats?  Legwarmers, even?  Oh wait, I live in Texas!  February days in these parts may start out in the mid-30's, but it will be 75 or 80 degrees by afternoon.  As such, any good outfit must be suitable for a 40 degree temperature swing.  You heard me correctly, folks.  40. degrees.

For this day, I decided to go wit...

I love Fall; it's my favorite season.  The air turns cool and crisp, shorts and T-shirts are put away, that first glorious day  when sweaters are required.  Too bad I live in Houston, Texas where we have a couple of days in November in the low 70's.  I work with a woman who showed up in boots for work the other day - "I just can't stand it anymore," she told me, "I don't care that it will be warm this afternoon, it...

See what I did there?  Tiers?  Tears?  Fine, you come up with a catchy title.  The only other thing I could come up with was Gray Gardens, and that really just seemed to summon the wrong vibe for a cute outfit.  I’m not made of magic, people.  Just wit, charm, dark under-eye circles, and the occasional spark of style.
