Something about my outfit today reminds me of the cover of an old Amy Grant album, Heart in Motion. When I was about 9-10 years old, I was oddly obsessed with this album. No joke. My parents liked that Amy Grant was nice, wholesome music (not to say they didn't let me listen to normal 90's sensations like New Kids on the Block) so they were happy to let me listen to her as much as I wanted. I specifically loved the song Every Heartbeat and would listen to it all the time. Like all the time. Wholesome as Amy was, I probably drove my mother crazy listening to her every single day for an entire summer. Eventually Paula Abdul and a spin off group from the New Mickey Mouse Club called The Party entered the mix too, but I know I spent an entire summer listening to Heart in Motion daily. So again, what does that have to do with my outfit today? Well here's my outfit:
Oh Sunshine making me squint, I love you, but come on. Anyway, here is the album cover of Heart in Motion:
If nothing else, I feel the color scheme just kind of matches. Maybe I'm crazy. I can't explain the way my brain works sometimes! I do know I've had this CD on my mind ever since Every Heartbeat was recently used in an episode of House.
So, me and my strange brain and odd references aside, I had planned to wear this outfit back on the Sarah Jessica Parker Inspiration Monday. Then I found that other dress at Old Navy and so I ended up pushing this one back. When I heard that it was going to be near 50 today, I realized that our winter days are numbered and so are the days left to wear sweaters and colored tights, so that made my decision today. Quite frankly, I'm probably even overdressed, but I just knew I wanted to try this combo with this dress before it gets terribly warm. Believe me, I'm still not done styling this dress too - I can't believe all the mixes I've come up with so far.
So anyway, that's my story, I feel strangely like an album cover from my childhood and I'm overdressed for a mild day. I never said I was normal! How's your Tuesday going?
