Seriously, something is wrong with me...I'm beginning to worry I'm narcoleptic or something. This is an outfit post from Sunday--what's today? Thursday!!!!!!
I honestly cannot seem to stay awake past 10pm, I fell asleep in the middle of uploading these pictures to Flickr last night. And not just like letting the computer do its thing, I mean I fell asleep while I was physically clicking which ones to upload to my photostream!
So I apologize for my random weekend posts during the middle of the week. And my lack of consistency in posting. I'm very unhappy with myself for this...but something is physically wrong and I cannot keep my eye open! (I have a doctor's appt. next weekend for a whole slew of issues I'm finding myself coming upon...damn WebMD-it turns me into a crazy woman with a million health issues).
Ok, well let's backtrack to last Sunday...
I hopped on the ferry to Governor's Island with my friend Cristina, and her lil' man. We were headed to a Gatsby-era Lawn Jazz party. While most of the attendees were dressed in their best 20's and 30's garb, we knew we might not stay there all day, nor do we have attire suitable to this point in time, so we opted for our own little picnic-y finery. (It's unfortunate that I do not own a single 1920's piece considering that one of my favorite books/movies of all time is THE GREAT GATSBY! Oh that Robert Redford back in the day! and what I wouldn't give to be Jordan Baker! Forget Mia Farrow as Daisy Buchanon, seriously--she's a whiny dainty little flower of a girl, so not my style...i'm all about being Jordan if I ever choose to go that route!)
It was awesome, parked along side of the great lawn party were a bunch of old cars. "Lil' Man" immediately took a liking to them! He absolutely could not wait to get his photos taken with the vehicles. (PS-cutest Kid EVER! no?)
Then of course it was my turn...I couldn't wait to get my own photos taken with my favorite of the group...the Ivory Car. It's a beauty for sure...and it happened to match my outfit better than the rest!
Since I didn't have any Gatsby-appropriate clothing, I went with a new dress I had found at Beacon's Closet last time I was visiting Mel in Park Slope. I thought it was a perfect option for a hot hot day picnicing on an island in the summertime.
It was a pretty good solution for the heat, but it was also a little more open in front than I'm used to wearing. I think I wasn't quite sure what to do with myself in terms of putting "the girls" on full display like that. I almost left without the huge pearl necklace--luckily I remembered to put it on before I was out the door, and it kinda helped me conceal some of all that fleshyness.

After the Lawn party, we headed back to Williamsburg so "Lil' Man" could be the total hipster-dude he was born to be. I mean look at him...is he not a mini-hipster or what? He's gonna break some serious hearts when he's older. We went to the free show to see some bands at the waterfront, where "Lil' Man" immediately popped a squat like a regular outdoor concert goer.
And before too long, I took a cue and popped my own squat. Then he proceeded to take off his shirt cause it was so freakin hot. And we had a pretty feisty game of tug-o-war going on from then on out.
Ah Sunday...it was a good day. I can't believe I've been so tired lately that I couldn't even post this until now though :( It would've made for such a good Weekend Rewind had I put both Sat. and Sun. together into one post.
Maybe this weekend, considering it's only 1 day away! I'm living in a haze, this week has flown by and now its almost time to create some more fun for this weekend. Crazy!
