Rock and roller: a white linen shirt, blue denim skinnies, and sherpa bag

Life is sometimes a real carnival ride…isn’t it, dear readers??

Despite the smiles in these photos, the last couple of days have had as many ups and downs as a roller coaster; and trust me…I’m not the kind of girl that thinks roller coaster rides are particularly fun.

After showing all signs of recovering from his mystery illness, our ferret Wolfie is once again gravely ill. And just to make things even more stomach-churning, it continues to be insanely busy at work (no lunch breaks to catch up with blogging!) and my husband and I were unexpectedly presented with a possible new “project” last weekend – sorry, no details are being released at this time! – so there have been plenty of looong days and sleepless nights.

I’m not surprised if you’ve been feeling a little neglected lately, since I’m finding it challenging right now to eke out some time to reply to all your lovely notes…never mind keeping up with my blog reading list!! But please be assured that your visits and comments are as appreciated as always.  And I’ll get back on a more level track as soon as I possibly can – I promise!!

      Don't the necklaces look fabulous layered together, dearest Dawn?! The long, pearl and crystal-beaded one is from Stella & Dot…and the shorter one is a piece I've owned for years; it's from Guess, if I remember correctly!! XOXO

      I've always loved white shirt combinations on OTHER girls, dearest Susan…but until quite recently, I've rarely felt really comfortable wearing one myself. I'm betting this will be the start of "practice makes perfect!!" ;D
