Two nights ago I had a totally enraging, ridiculous dream. I dreamt I was visiting Kelly Bean to help out with new baby-related household angst (I have no indication that things are angsty chez KB. This is a subconsciously-produced detail). Kelly, her hubs, her mom, and I were running around trying to round-up various neighbourhood children and get Baby T down for a nap. In the midst of all this, a couple of nondescript idiots kept insisting that everyone sit down so they could serenade Kelly and babe on the recorder and the ukulele. They started, stopped, but never completed a painfully slow version of “My Heart Will Go On.”
I woke up enraged on KB’s (and my own) behalf, and have had the Titanic theme stuck in my head ever since. It. Is. Awful.
That’s all I’ve got today, StyleNation. Well, that and these three pant-based outfits:
#1. Red Linen for Student Supervision
I am taking suggestions for better shoe pairings with these trousers:
#2. Day-long Community Meeting
I wore the following to a very long, emotionally and intellectually exhausting policy-development conference on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. Sartorially, I wanted to be appropriately respectful, but not overly formal. The A-Dubs-Hubs thinks I hit the mark this time – what do you think?

Silver and gold metal necklace: mall anchor store, new to the blog
Nine West leather belt: via Winners, new to the blog

Fortunately, my name-tag-on-a-string tangled with the necklace, preventing boob-wrangling for much of the day.
#3. Pattern-mixing, One Supervisory Meeting
The camera refused to capture the brown stripe in this jacket, so you’ll just have to trust me on this one: I am mixing patterns. The camera can suck it.
Dress Barn brown-and-cream striped cotton jacket: gifted, new to the blog
Tall Girl clear plastic sparkly multi-strand necklace: new to the blog
Reitmans coral cami: new
Reitmans coral-and-white print ruffled tank: new

That’s right: not even the close-up shows the stripe in the jacket.
How do you make your camera take the real picture? Can you train me to do it in three lines or less?
