bossing my brudder around: genetically-gifted
Now you can see where I get my fashion inspiration--my brudder (sister) is adventurous, colorful, and has mile-long legs--but that doesn't stop me from bossing her around (and is why I love this photo). These were our Thanksgiving dinner outfits: I wore the same brown skirt I've been sporting all week, and the same flats, but mixed it up with tights and this awesome flower in my hair (found at anthropologie and affixed with both barrette and safety pin so you can put it in your hair or on your coat). I love the combination of stripes, the navy tights, and the gold shoes on brudder--the outfit is dressed up, but still comfortable (i.e. perfect for packing in extra helpings of pumpkin pie).
We can afford the extra pie, too, because our annual Thanksgiving walk involved a 17-mile roundtrip bike ride to Marin county, where we then hiked for several miles. We got to bicycle across golden gate bridge, which was an amazing ride. I had to post this gorgeous photo of C. and I at the end of the bridge after our ride, despite my fashion-don't apparel and sweaty hair.
And my sweet family up in the hills in Marin during our walk:
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend--and thank you for being such sweet readers...I feel mightily welcomed into blog-world. xoxo.
