The Grammys.

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.

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…

    I love your British Heritage Look – a must for the plane ride in a few weeks!

    I am also pleased that JT doesn’t push your buttons, that’s one less person to fight to get to him – he pushes all my buttons!

      You think? I’m never sure this look is really me – I feel a bit too ‘square’ in it:) So please tell me what it is about JT? I just don’t get it…xx

    Those booties are cute, for a second, I thought they were baby booties, then I looked closer. LOL. Can you even imagine those on a newborn? :)

    I don’t watch awards shows, but I do love Adele’s dress. Glad that it was that length, though, any longer and it would have been way too much! Even on her!

    I was going to add a picture of Rhianna to my blog about last night’s best looks, because I did think she looked beautiful. I just couldn’t do it, though, because I find her so annoying for the way she’s handled the whole thing with Chris Brown. I hate the way he’s handled himself, too. Together… it’s just BAD.

    Hate you so much right now if you got the Bobbys. I was rung up the other day to say they’d come in at Morgan Clare and I’m skint. Pfff.
