Can't take a good day without a bad one...

Days 3 and 4 of 30 for 30. And more Fiona Apple. I'm sensing a pattern...

I'm a frightened, fickle person
Fighting, cryin', kickin', cursin'
What should I do

Shirt - J. Crew, Cardigan - Aeropostale, Jeans - Old Navy, Shoes - BCBG Max Azria, Sunglasses - Express, Necklace - Express, Bracelets - Melinda Maria, Watch - Michael Kors

Can't take a good day without a bad one
Don't feel just to smile until I've had one
Where did I learn

August was pretty happy to interrupt this photo shoot. Camera hog. Also, I was completely dissatisfied with this outfit, then I put on the necklace and it felt entirely different. Funny how that works sometimes.

I make a fuss about a little thing
The rhyme is losing to the riddling
Where's the turn

I don't want a home, I'd ruin that
Home is where my habits have a habitat
Why give it a turn

Shirt - J. Crew, Sweater - Gifted, Jeans - Old Navy, Boots - BCBGeneration, Sunglasses - Chanel, Ring - Gifted

I am likely to miss the main event
If I stop to cry or complain again
So I will keep a deliberate pace
Let the damned breeze dry my face


And then August couldn't be bothered to make an appearance even though he was outside. Animals. So temperamental. I would have never put this sweater over this shirt (actually, this shirt is one of the never worn items, but I mean the color) before but hey, 30 items, 30 days, you gotta come up with something. I really like it. 

I've got a plan, a demand and it just began
And if you're right, you'll agree

Here's coming a better version of me
Here it comes a better version of me
Here it comes a better version of me

Both outfits are great - I really like that sweater over the green top. It's got a great neckline.
Your dog is awesome.

I like both outfits......... BUT, I love the second one! I think it's the blend of the gray and the zipper- two of my favorite things! Love the new venue for your shot :) looks pretty in your yard and August is super cute. Great job with the oufits!

I like your striped cardi! The remix has helped me revisit necklaces and bracelets. I like the sweater(vest?) with the colored long-sleeve underneath. That's a great color!

Do play Fiona Apple songs the piano? Tori Amos? Sarah McLachlan? So many great pianists out there, including you :D

Check out my 30! Jen Hemming and Hawing Again

Girl you are totally hanging in there with this. I love all the accessories in the first. You have some killer ones! And the boots in the second are just ridic hot.

I am sicker than a dog. Is the spacing totally whacked on my post? Chef hooked up my computer and I'm a deer in the headlights to the nth degree - sick AND trying to figure this mother out? oy

You clearly have mastered the art b/c these pics are faboosh! And ps-that snow sure melted quick...

August is too adorable! Loving the looks, especially how the teal contrasts with the dark coloured sweater. The outdoor shots are a lovely change too. I know it's because we've had some nice weather recently:-).

Ah, Fiona Apple. Tidal was my ish back in the day.

I love both looks, but the pop of teal in the second one speaks to me. I want those boots...and your little dog, too.

Cute jeans and flats look. I love seeing your pup pop up in the pictures! :)

My dogs sometimes wonder in my pictures, but they usually are off-camera, staring at me like I"m a weirdo!
