I am torn about the {faux?} fur collar.  It’s not really my favorite feature, and I am thinking about removing it.  Normally, I refrain from altering vintage pieces, but interestingly enough, I think the previous owner added the fur after purchase {it’s not listed on the material content tag}.

A few thoughts:
1.  I am surprised these photos turned out so grainy.  My ISO was only on 400 (which I use often…)
2.  Fall barely started and I already have a cold.  Go figure.  Believe it or not, I never used to get sick.  This makes me worry that there is something seriously wrong with my immune system.  I eat fairly healthy, my blood tests always come back fine, and I am very active…yet I still find myself sidelined frequently with colds.  And I don’t even have kids to bring me home the school-yard germs!

About every 6 months Kevin and I go on a workout binge. This normally lasts about 3-4 weeks before we stop making time, or before I fall back into my regular (but not well rounded) routine of cardio without weights (I am a runner).  Our plan for the fall – P90X.  I did the first video yesterday (core synergistics) and today I can’t move.  Not sure if my stiffness resonates in the photos, but know that it was even painful to walk today… 

A Bohemian Sunday

Skirt:  Old Navy – $9!!! (this is actually a dress – I tucked the top down into what was supposed to be the empire waist.  When the empire waist is moved down to my real waist, the skirt is long enough for my 5’10” frame.  I will eventually alter the dress properly, but my sewing machine is back home, so today’s version is courtesy of folding and tucking) [similar]
T-shirt:  Smart Set [similar]
Scarf:  No brand.  Bought it as part of a fundraiser for Afgan families (from my physiotherapist – I get scarves in the most random places) [similar]
Bag:  Winners [similar]
Boots:  No-brand leather boots from Poland [similar]
Bracelets:  Mexx, Cassis
