I have been sooooooooo sick.  Norovirus has been going around Calgary and I think I got it.  I have been laid up for almost a week.  And just when I would think I was getting better,  I'd get hit with another wave.  I don't want to jinx it, but I think I'm on the mend. 

So I'm way out on a limb here by wearing a mini skirt, but just love this colour so much.  I think the black tights and not-too-high boots keep me from looking too much like "mutton dressed as lamb".  Or, at 42, are mini skirts just a "don't"??

**I thought I'd put up the picture of me looking surprised because I am by the shortness of the skirt!!

I never, ever wear coloured tights.  It's always been black, brown or navy.  But I'm trying to break out of my box, so here I am in burgundy tights.  Hmmmmmmmmmmm...

Wow, do I ever feel like I'm out straight out of the 70s today.  It wasn't my original intention, but I love the result (except for the hair, which I was just too tired to face this morning!).
