This is one of my favorite songs and no, Tom Petty doesn't even have some Queen connection that you're aren't aware of - I just really love this song! I always thought it was a great "road trip" song and I really love listening to it in the car.
Well, I won't be in a car tomorrow, but I'll be on a plane. I guess I'll find out if this song is equally uplifting when I'm precariously dangling tens of thousands of feet up in the air (can you tell I'm not really the greatest flier?) I've filled my iPhone with my new Sherlock Holmes audio book, every Queen/RT song I own, and Season 1, Disc 2 of Arrested Development. I also picked up three books at Barnes and Noble this afternoon. I should have no problem making it through this plane ride.
As I was packing yesterday afternoon, I stumbled upon something rather surprising in my closet: red! I think I've mentioned that I don't own a single red article of clothing. I don't even own anything that has red in it! Pink. Absolutely. Orange. Of course. Maroon. Indeed. Red. Um...well...actually, no.
But I was wrong! I have something with red in it. And not only that, it is red, white and blue! With that I present my Fourth of July outfit!
Blouse, Ann Taylor Loft, size Large
Pants, Banana Republic, size 12
Sandals, Merona for Target
Earrings, Honora for QVC
Bracelets, Stretch pearls
And since I'm doing a What I Wore on the weekend, that means Husband is home to take the pictures for me! Hurray! (Although can I just say that I don't know how so many of you bloggers convince your husbands/significant others to take photos of you every day. Husband acts like I'm asking him to chop off his own foot when I suggest he take five minutes to snap some photos of me!)
Husband laughed at me when I posed for this one. I can't help if I was feeling particularly patriotic in my red, white and blue ensemble!
If you look closely, you can see Izzy peeking through the glass of the front door.
This is how I'm going to pose when I'm famous - looking over my shoulder from my left side. Absolutely smashing!
The blouse is a bit big. I'm not sure what possessed me to buy a Large, especially in this baggy bloused style. Every time I wear this top, I have to tie the halter really tight to keep the back from slipping down too low and I end up with a headache. A Medium would definitely have been ideal. But it's red and I don't care, I'll suck it up and wear it today!
No fireworks for me, but Husband bought chicken drumsticks to cook on the grill. Yum!
Have a great day everyone!
