Navy, Leopard & Melon

Decided to take the "outfit du jour" show on the road this morning, well, actually just to the footpath up the street from my apartment, but it felt like miles away from my boring old gray wall. I somewhat sheepishly set up my tripod and started snapping away. Just a little while ago the whole tripod in public idea freaked me out, but a great thing about getting older-- you start to just not give a damn. Yeah, I'm taking pictures of myself alone with a tripod, and... ? Plus, it helps that I live in a city where no one bats a lash at the sight of a man in leather chaps (and nothing else) walking around in broad daylight, so me and my tripod aren't much of a spectacle fortunately.

Using this opportunity to share a couple of my Christmas presents too-- a quilted leather bag (a gift from my husband, and no, it's not Chanel but I'm not complaining), and a peridot and diamond ring (gift from my mom who knows I love dainty jewelry).   Now,  isn't this view a little better than that old gray wall?
