Don't call me 'baby' ....bok choy

Like Cindi, I get a box of farm fresh organic produce box delivered to my door. Sometimes I'm amazed at the size of the produce. This week was especially surprising. We got two bunches of baby bok choy. Um, I don't think these are 'baby,' or at least, the baby bok choy we've gotten from them in the past hasn't been quite so colossal.
Please pretend you don't see the amazon boxes in the back or the open linen closet... I store my tripod in there, and didn't think about closing the door while taking these pics, lol.

Um, that's two times my head size, let's just say fitting two of these in our fridge along with several bunches of chard and heads of lettuce wasn't the easiest of tasks

Still, I see this 'baby' and I see tasty - tasty braises and stirfries in my future!

Today I'm wearing another outfit whose colors seem to blind my camera! These jeans are ridiculously bright red, which makes them pretty awesome.

If this outfit looks familiar, it's because I wore a very similar version here. But this is a totally different striped top (the other one had blue stripes, :) ), and different outer layer and shoes! That makes it totes a different outfit (sorta).

I picked up this cropped tuxedo jacket at Goodwill this past weekend. I'd been eying this $300 beauty at J.Crew. The one I'm wearing is $2.50. In fact, if you want a cropped tuxedo jacket, the Seattle downtown GW had 129389312749127 brand new ones of these. This was one of the items Target apparently offloaded to GW. Happy times for me!

Photo bomb!

I can't decide if I love or hate this necklace I picked up from F21. The little balls at the bottom of the large pendant are actually tiny bells... um, so I 'jingle' as I walk around. It's not a bad jingle per se, but I'm not really used to jingling.

I do know that I'm pretty much adoring these flower pins I picked up at F21 for $1.50. I've been clipping them to everything: jackets, sweaters, headbands. They're just fun!

Oh I need to get some flower pins! So cute! I love that necklace but I'm not a huge fan of making music as I walk, either. Hm...

You look adorable in that striped top and those red jeans look FABULOUS on you!

You have just tempted me into buying a pair of the Katherine boots!

Is it wrong that I am probably the only asian on the planet who can't stand bok choy? Like, I'll eat the green part only if I can't get around them, and the white sterms? No, sirree.

I'm usually all about the greens, but no thanks to the bok choy!

That very important rant aside, you look great! And it is nice to see Budz all up and about and doing his sweet dog thing!

Uhhh....that "baby" bok choy is not that baby at all. I thought baby bok choy was no longer than 20cms?
I love your flower brooch. I can't believe it was only $1.50. What a bargain!

I love that close-up of your necklace! It rocks...the colors are awesome! I hate when my camera blinds out the colors I'm wearing, too...

Okay, I didn't notice the Amazon boxes or the open linen closet door -- but I could walk into a glass door, so maybe that's not saying much : )

And your accessories in this outfit are just amazing. That necklace is a stunner -- making a very good statement. And how wonderful that you found a lookalike blazer -- for a steal!
