JMS welcomes guest blogger: Between Laundry Days

Hi there, all you folks up in that area next to the Great White North! I'm so flattered that Danielle asked me to contribute a guest post to her week off. Danielle has been a favorite of mine for a long time. So thank you, Danielle! I hope I make you proud! :)

So I wanted to post an outfit that was really....well...sunny. I know that the days up in Alaska are getting shorter and shorter as we speak, so I thought I'd share some of the sunshine from my neck of the woods. Now, the funny part is that it was a very gray, cloudy, overcast morning when I took these pictures, so we'll have to let the sunshine yellow pants do all the talking.

Every time I take pictures in this location, I think of two of my fave Alaskan bloggers, Delightfully Tacky, and, of course, Danielle, who always take such wonderful pictures in the woods and open spaces. It's easy to forget about open spaces and forests and clear skies when you live in Chicago, like I do, but photoshoots like this can be a nice reminder.

One thing I adore about blogging is the major amounts of inspiration that I get from other bloggers, and the style "chains" that happen as a result. This outfit was a direct result (some may say a direct copy, but I think that's fine) of one of Orchid Grey's recent outfits. I love the combination of bright mustard yellow cords and a funky plaid, and knew I had to try it for myself. I really love the result!

Okay, thank you Danielle, for asking me to participate in your guest bloggery!!! And thank you, Danielle's lovely readers, for listening to my rambling (at least you had colorful pants to look at, right?). Happy weekend!!

  3. Thanks again, Danielle, for asking me to guest post while you're away!! Millions of hugs. :)

  4. Yay, Clare! Funny how I've seen this outfit in person but may love it even more on the internets.

    Great feature!
