Geez where’s my ark? Half the time here we talk about surviving a drought, but after yesterday I think the reservoirs will be full again. In fact we woke to flood warnings, trees down and power outages. The rain is set to continue – good prep for England next week!
I watched some of the Grammys last night and enjoyed sharing a few thoughts over Twitter #Grammys. Florence Welch and Adele looked amazing and represented England well. Miranda Lambert looked like a train wreck and sounded worse. Justin – I’m sorry I’m still trying to understand what all the fuss is about – yes you’re talented, but not my cup of tea. Rihanna looked and sounded amazing though I still question her taste in men. It makes me irate in fact. Oh as did the gratuitous high five and back slapping for Jay-Z when his wife took the stage – is it just me or is it really derogatory to do that? After my late night on Saturday I had to DVR the second half so will maybe be less critical when I watch that this evening. Twitter is a great place to follow such events – like with the Golden Globes too – I wonder if the Sate of the Union tweets tomorrow night will be as funny? Maybe not.

Florence in custom Givenchy
Miranda in a way too short sequin dress.
Rihanna and Chris Brown – 4 years ago he beat her up.
Today I opted for something a little less red carpet, and looking at it now I think I should have added a piece of color. The tweed jacket is an old Boden favorite. It’s worn over a J.Crew khaki long-sleeved tee, with an H&M long sleeve linen tee layered over it, with a khaki Zara scarf. The jeans are Hudson Collin, the boots are Vince Camuto Autumn, and the glasses are Oliver People Wacks in tortoise shell/black.
I made the mistake this morning of ‘browsing’ the net-a-porter.com site and look what they just got a shipment of here in the US – perfect with shorts in the summer here in Atlanta – mmmmm…
So what were your thoughts on the Grammys? Anyone raise your eyebrow?
