(Sorta) Green Bunny Friday

"Cool Weather Rabbits"--Friday, 11/4/16

Last week, I read that Katie had purchased something called the Loft Rabbit Print Utility Blouse.  I immediately had to check it out for myself.  Squeeeee!  I don't have a long-sleeved rabbit shirt for wearing to work--this must be rectified immediately.


So I ordered it and several other things, which all arrived on Tuesday.  Amazingly, everything fit and I liked it all, so I decided to kick off a series of outfits featuring my new items today.

As you know, I usually plan and photograph my outfits in advance.  Well, this time I planned the outfit on Tuesday and tried it on/photographed it today before work....which gives me new respect for bloggers who photograph their outfit of the day this way on a regular basis.  It's so much more efficient to photograph outfits in batches over the weekend the way I usually do.

*White/dark teal rabbit blouse (Loft), $29.75/wear
Skinny jeans (JCP), $0.57/wear
*Gold/jewel crystal stone necklace (Loft), $31.20/wear
Maroon flats (Payless), $2.83/wear

Outfit total: $64.35/wear

Of course, many people wake up and look in their closet and decide what to wear just before going to work!  This outfit is a perfect don't-know-what-to-wear Friday formula: blouse, nice jeans, flats, necklace. It won't be much longer and I will have to bundle up more than this, so I'm glad I had the chance to make the blouse the center of the outfit while the high temps are still in the 60s.

I have to say, I find the colors of this blouse kind of perplexing.   The blouse is called "whisper white" on the web site...but I'd call it closer to cream than white.  A reviewer wrote that the rabbits are "dark turquoise" but I think they are closer to dark green--not a true green, but like 80% green/20% teal.  So a color that I'm not going to match to either green or teal (or turquoise).  Confusing colors notwithstanding, I approve of this rabbit blouse!  I am also digging this new necklace--it has a lot of colors, so while maybe it won't match everything, it will go with many ambiguously-colored rabbit blouses.

Unsurprisingly, I don't have any green colored rabbits to share with you, but I thought these dwarf hotots, who look a bit like models with their dramatic eyeliner, would be appropriate.

In other news...Today was somewhat frustrating on the database front at work, but I don't want to talk about that.  It was irritating enough to deal with it while I was at work.  Now it's the weekend!  Wheeeeeee!

Let's all try to keep our shit together as the countdown to Election Day continues.  Today's Regarding the Secret Life of Rabbits comic is perfect.

Sammy! Yes!  (Sorry, I shouldn't encourage him, but he's awesome.)  I love how he's literally demonstrating that a certain candidate shits all over every stage he's on.

I LURVE that blouse. I like how there is more than one position/shape of rabbit. In pictures it just looks black and white. Sharp!

Thanks! I too like the seated rabbit/running rabbit images.
