VW Gold (like Slugbug Yellow)


Our 2001 VW Jetta Wagon, still loyal even though it sounds like it's running on squirrels. (Not running over squirrels) I digress as usual. Well, not completely. I decided to combine V and W for the tail-end of the A to Z challenge.

V is for V-necks

Jen-in-a-cube x 2. It's hard to tell that I'm in my cube since I got carried away masking then pointilizing my cube walls. I usually wear this sweater with a tank, then I tried a traditional button-up, and on Monday I tried a ruffly collared eyelet button-up to mix it up.

W is for Wedges

$11 from Buffalo Exchange on the Ave! You can barely see the 50% off stamp.

I thought I was well hidden behind our hedge. Well, I was but Desi wasn't, so our neighbor saw us during our 'photo shoot'. I was embarassed (which explains all of my awkward poses as I was explaining what we were doing and Desi kept snapping away), but at least I got to meet a neighbor I hadn't yet met. We're such recluses in our household.

A close up of my wedges. I'll have to feature them again front and center because you can't see the wedge detail very well. I thought I finally had my leopard print, but Augie commented on how cool the cheetah print is. I do believe he is correct that it's cheetah. I so would have lost on Jeopardy!. I am not smarter than a first grader.

(Had I contined a garden theme, I would have done Violets and Wildflowers. I forgot to state such for STU. I would have done Snapdragons, Tuberose, and . . . oh dear! I can't think of one and I don't want to Google it. I haven't yet for my challenge. I'll get back to you on U)

  5. You are totally adorable. Wow, Buffalo Exchange! I used to shop there all of the time, they always had a great and unique selection of clothes, love that place. I think all of my grooviest clothes came from there.
    Those earrings are fantastic!
