OOTD :: of JT fangirling and the return of TARDIS Tuesday




I have two words for you: JUSTIN. TIMBERLAKE.

Pardon me while I continue to fangirl squee.

Yes, I know. It’s been almost a week since the Taylor Swift concert. But I’m still giddy about the fact that one of her special guests on the final night of her L.A. tour was none other than JT himself!

Selena Gomez was fine. I waxed nostalgic when Lisa Kudrow came on as Phoebe Buffay and jammed with Ms. Swift by singing “Smelly Cat”. But it was Justin Timberlake who made my heart do cartwheels and yanked forth the most un-momlike screaming from me last Wednesday.

Justin Timberlake. WHEEEEEEE!

Okay, I think I got that out of my system for now. Let’s go back to our regularly scheduled fashion blogging program.

Today, I give you a whimsical outfit that is an example of the new direction in which I’m taking my personal style. I’m still all about the cobalt – it is TARDIS Tuesday after all – and I’m still loving me a fab shoe. But I think I’m going to continue exploring looser, less skin-tight silhouettes  and more forgiving footwear in an effort to not torture my poor 40-something-year-old body.

I may sport the occasional skinny jean now and then, but huzzah to gauchos, palazzo pants, skirts and trousers like this linen pair. And huzzah to flatforms that don’t make my feet ache at the end of the day!

I’m also officially abandoning my moratorium on tops with graphics/words across my chest. I’ll try to be professional, of course, but I now see nothing wrong with wearing a design that garners a second look at the girls. Life’s too short to worry about inadvertent creepers. And I’d hate to turn my nose up at something as utterly adorable as this pop art print simply because I’m being illogically prudish.

I do draw the line, however, at message tees. Nothing wrong with them on those decades younger, but that’s just way too much text and way too much sass for this woman of a certain age.

And you, my friends? What’s your take on message tees? Or how about your take on TARDIS Tuesday (British, blue or Doctor Who), for that matter? Do link up by clicking on the blue froggy below.
