My outfit today was inspired by this dress on the Anthropologie website.
My coworker was talking to me while I took these photos and making me laugh.

Tights! Fall! Tights!
I wouldn't normally wear a dress this short to work but I felt like pushing the envelope a little today. I didn't have any outside meetings so it didn't really matter.
At least I keep my terrible tattoos covered up most of the day.
Yesterday, my last surviving grandparent, my Granny, passed away. She was 97 and had had a stroke about 5 years ago so she's been in a nursing home. If she had understood what was happening to her she would have hated it.
My fondest memories of my Granny are from when I was a young child and we used to go up to my grandparent's cottage. Everyday at 2:00 all of the grand-kids would return to the cottage from our wanderings in the woods, picking wild strawberries, sitting on the dock, or swimming if you were crazy. and Granny would haul out the "two o'clock goodie bag". We'd all put our hands in and pull out a pack of gum or a chocolate bar or a lollypop. Two o'clock goodie bag was the best!
I'm sad that she's gone but I know she had a good life and was loved by her 4 children and 7 grandchildren.
Both of my grandmothers lived into their 90s. Good sign?
