the sky is blue and not falling

I am grilling at my place this evening for my bf and his ‘rents so this post will be short so I can prep and clean. 
First I want to give a big hug and thank you to everyone who commented on yesterdays post with great tips and ideas. I am feeling much better today and it’s all because my readers (that’s you silly) are amazing
THANK YOU!!!! Photobucket 
This is my Lost Bird Found tote (see also the blog here) that I have been using as a backpack.  It’s really cute and I always get tons of complements on it.  It’s heavy duty I’m telling you, it so dang cute and it’s my fav. shopping bag. I am happy that I can use it as a shopping tote again since I bought an actual backpack.Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket 
I found out two things with outfit. Actually three now that think about it. 
1) These shoes DO NOT go with this skirt/dress. I was in a hurry to get to the farmers market and to pick up our pictures that we took to get framed a couple of weeks ago before it all closed. I just tossed them on and ran out the door. Which leads me to the 2nd thing I learned (well it was my third though but it fits in with thought # 1.) 
2) You should always look in a mirror or take a photo of what you are wearing before you leave the house. If you don’t you could look like a fool like I did today. 
3) I cannot color block. Period. I sort of have a thing with jumping off of things. It came on the few years ago and really I can’t help myself. I’m not even sure where it came from but… Photobucket Photobucket
dress: no name. well I can't read the tag anymore that is. sweater: J Crew. necklace: hand me down form my sis. shoes:  KG by Kurt Keiger.
