Ahoy Me Stripey...

Quite unintentionally I wore stripes all weekend... and hoodies... and a [self put together] pirate costume. 
Not for the pillage and plunder heck of it (although you never know with me... despite going down in history as the world's biggest movie flop, I loved 'Cutthroat Island'!) ... twas a friend's 40th birthday party on Saturday night.  Total pirate mania fun!!

...and Father's Day here in Australia on Sunday!  Those of you celebrating that, I hope you had a lovely day! And I hope all of you had a lovely weekend... by the way... it's been a lacklustre past few days for many people... an energy drain... have you felt this way?  If so... give this a try...and get your (wo)mantra on!!

ps. These pics are boring, sorry!  Or maybe that's just accentuated by the reaction to my first day of Spring images!!!  Thank you so much for your comments and reactions, here and on other style sites!!

No photo of you could possibly be boring, Dusk! You look fabulous in every shot, you couldn't take a bad photograph if you tried. Stripes rock (on you, particularly)! xxx

Leia said...

You look lovely in stripes! The pirate outfit is my favorite :)

I've been feeling lacklustre for sure. This morning while I was getting ready I just burst into tears for no reason!

Dusk, your pictures are NEVER boring. Stripey suits you well, so does pirate!

Vibhuti said...

Oooo That Pirate look is a killer!
And how didja guess?
I have overwhelmingly felt an energy drain over the past week and couldnt bring myself to blog or kickstart any new project. :(
Stripes on ur mind too?
And each one is more fabulous than the previous. Do I stand a single chance to beat ur splendid stripes????

You look cute and fierce at the same time. I always notice your expression before your clothes. Of course you are always a colorful delight but it's your poses and expression that blow me away. The center one is Killer! :)

Romany said...

Ah there any more beautiful pattern than stripes? I really think my obsession is reaching an unhealthy new level.
Haha, I love the pirate costume. Ahoy, indeed.
re: your comment, I know I think the 'no fruit' part is the worst. It's in Group 2 of my list, which isn't off limits, just limited intake, so it's not completely awful, but of all things to cut down on...I live on fruit! I need fruit everyday or I get depressed haha! Boo to diets. But yes to health, I guess. Grr.

carlyjcais said...

Haha! Fabulous! You look so fun and I love your "piratey" take on all your outfits!
Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog...I had no idea you could speak Japanese as well! The things you learn about people...;-)!! I mean it in a good way!
Hope you're having a lovely beginning to your September~
