"If it weren't for double standards, I wouldn't have standards at all."

If it weren't for double standards, I wouldn't have standards at all.

If it weren't for double standards, I wouldn't have standards at all.

If it weren't for double standards, I wouldn't have standards at all.

If it weren't for double standards, I wouldn't have standards at all.

If it weren't for double standards, I wouldn't have standards at all.

Just got back from a fairly inspiring Redskins game, complete with quotables like the one above from our buddy, D.  I'm pretty sure he's not joking when he says these things.

Oh and so we're clear, I did not wear this to the game.  This was from Saturday.  The weather was gorgeous, but as much as I dreaded Summer ending, all I can think about now are Fall clothes.  With this ensemble, I was kind of feeling the Katharine Hepburn vibe.

vintage necklace
jade bracelet
Limited blouse

Such a lovely vintage combination. Not everyone can pull vintage wear as classy as you do. i don't think i can give justice to those vintage pants either. you're very sophisticated. :)
