This post is a little bit here and there, but first I decided to recreate my traveling outfit for my recent trip to Texas.
I wore a polyester jersey dress with cotton capri leggings (both Merona by Target) and a cotton jacket (Christopher & Banks). Sandals are Doc Marten's. This was warm enough for early morning departure from our local airport.
As soon as we got to Dallas, off came the leggings and jacket, although I kept the jacket handy in the air-conditioned car.

The dress was stretchy and comfortable, and slinky enough that it didn't cling to the leggings. I could also use the jacket with my other outfits, although it was so bloody hot that I didn't really need it.

I also had three days at home while still on vacation, plus the weekend! I am feeling so mellow right now. I went over to the beach on Friday, the first day of summer. Oregon's beaches are owned by the state, so they're all open to the public - yay!!!
It was one of those perfect days - not a cloud in the sky, not crowded, no time constraints. Just me, my feet in the cold water and then the hot sand, lots of walking, lying on a log, no particular thoughts. Basically, heaven. But without my camera. Ah, well, life happens with or without a photograph!
I went to see "the band" when I got back from the beach, and one of the covers they do is "Just Like Heaven", which was originally done by The Cure. Katie Melua recreated it in a different and beautifully haunting style. This is the version Strange Charm does.
I read that Blogger's Reading List will not be disappearing with Google Reader. At least not yet. So I'm sticking with that for now. If I create my posts in Blogger, I don't want to log in to yet another website to read blogs! Sheesh! Of course, I may be wrong, and totally screwed.
I'll be linking up to Not Dead Yet Style for another Visible Monday. Get out there and be visible!
