Everyone Knows it's Windy

Sorry for another faceless shot! This was the only picture in which my hair did not look like I just stepped out of a convertible after driving on the highway... in Chicago. People with long hair can pull off that "windblown" look--I just look like I stuck a fork in an outlet. 

In addition to my hair, the wind's force also had a detrimental effect on the neat little piles of leaves I raked up this afternoon. And I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit that today was my first real yard work experience. My job was to rake the leaves then suck them up with our leaf blower/sucker. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a leaf sucker! As it happens, there is, and you can even wear the bag on your back as you go, ghostbuster-style. It was pretty dirty, so I didn't. But just having the option made me giggle a bit. Oh, and by the way, this picture was taken pre-leaf raking. The wind may have been blowing, but I managed to rid our yard of some leaves.

  1. Oh GORGEOUS sweater. I LOVE it. It is perfection. Drool worthy. It loves me too. This whole look is perfect. And yes, short hair is not good for the wind blown look.

    funny and interesting post as usual too!

  4. OOH! Love the cardi! I have heard really good things about her line! Totally hear you on the short hair in the wind thing - we live on the water so it is almost always windy. I feel your pain!
