OOTD :: of Thoughtful Thursday and wise decisions





Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.

OOTD :: of ticking off the boxes




Whitney’s prompt today was New Favorite Trend. And I dunno if it’s an actual trend per se, but my new fave thing this season is the tulle skirt.

I’ve now acquired three of them, and I plan on keeping an eye out for more. I’m not Mad Hunting them, especially since summer and no paycheck time is around the corner, but if I stumble upon one in a color I don’t have yet, and if the price is right, I wouldn’t say no.

Today’s tulle skirt was a deliberate purchase, however. TARDIS blue tulle? Fuggedaboutit. When I saw it featured on Pinterest, I knew it had to be mine. It was a little pricey, but with judicious Googling and the discovery of a promo code, it ended up being about the same price as my first one.

So, New Favorite Trend for Whitney? Check.

TARDIS Tuesday? I’m in blue. Check.

Anne’s 52 Pick-me-up prompt? Forget-me-not. Check.

And as if the happiness factor of killing multiple birds with one stone isn’t through the roof already, how about we toss in a sassy pair of leopard pumps? I haven’t been able to stop grinning all day!

OOTD :: of leopards or cheetahs…or jaguars?




Whitney’s Create28 prompt for today is Leopard Print.

And can I be honest? Any time someone throws this challenge at me, I always have to do a Google search to refresh my memory. Because, I dunno about you, but wild cat prints confuse the heck out of me.

So if you’re like me, here you go:


You’re welcome. 😜

My top is decidedly, accurately leopard and I truly love the print. My only reservations regarding it is the tendency to either look like one is about to go on safari or one is trying too hard to revisit one’s youthful clubbing days, depending on how it’s styled.

By pairing it with a crisp, cool white – both with the bottom and the completer piece – I believe I’ve managed to avoid both fashion pitfalls.

Do you like cat prints? How do you style them if you do?
