Musings On Penguins And Denim

Last night as I edited and arranged the pictures for today's post inspiration on what to write escaped me. The blank white space mocked me in its emptiness. I appealed to a friend for an idea and he made the rather ridiculous suggestion of writing on what penguins would wear if they had clothes. Immediately I laughed, but of course the idea dogged my mind as I searched for another idea. Penguins are so often noted for their dapper appearance in tuxedo-like seemed to me that given a choice they would enjoy a casual friday. A wardrobe of denim cut-offs and flip-flops would be a pleasant escape from their usual formal style. Of course, I was wearing this denim dress at the time I contemplated all this, so then I had to just wonder at the power of suggestion...

Outfit details:



  1. You look absolutely beautiful. I love the simplicity of a crisp blue dress with a hat.. I'm so predictable.

    Anyhow, I laughed aloud at this. I'm always trying to one-up myself (I need to get over that) and write, but the blank white screen is so intimidating! Penguins' attire? That's pretty darn original. ;)

    ps: I went ahead and ordered the camera off of amazon! It should be here next week, and I'm jazzed. Thank you for all your help and for putting up with my spastic tweets.
