Maxi at the Minor League
I loved wearing this ensemble! I kind of didn’t want to take it off. It got a lot of comments at the Stockton Ports v. Lancaster Jethawks minor league baseball game. My friend Tony said I looked like his mom. Tony is 62, so I’m hoping he meant his mom as he pictures her in 1970.

I love this print. It’s like the electrons are zinging all over my dress and hitting my shiny bracelet.

On the way home from our fabulous weekend in Davis, we stopped at the Savers in Vacaville and I found this Armani jacket for $17. Most of what I wear everyday is pretty cheaply made, so it was such a difference how substantial it felt. I love the shade of blue and the shoulders.

I’ve always liked the court jester motif, and then if you mix that with a Pucci aesthetic, it’s perf.

The painting on my leggings is Liberty Leading the People. I’d love to go back and be an art history major.

Two different flame-stitch patterns weren’t enough; leopard and zebra print were necessary.
