Take a deep breath. Whew. We made it through the first day relatively unscathed. The jury's still out on how the year will be though- it's still too soon to make a safe judgment ;) When I picked this outfit out for this week, I wasn't sure how it would look. I told you earlier in the month I wanted to concentrate on separates for fall and these were two pieces I've had for a while. I was very pleased with the effect of the ruffles on the blouse and the fullness of my beloved Old Navy skirt.
Last week while driving around town I heard Madonna's "Cherish" on the radio and I knew immediately that I wanted it to be my Tunesday Tuesday song for this week. It's such a fun song, but really the video is amazing! I don't think Madonna has ever looked more beautiful. AND mermen? What more could we possibly want from a video?!

A quick read of Wikipedia (my go-to for all information as you know) uncovered that the mermen were actually water polo players, which explains A LOT especially if you watched any water polo during the Olympics. The tails were pretty functional and they were able to swim with a great deal of agility. If you decide to read the Wikipedia article I would stop there because it get really weird after that- talking about the symbolism of mermen among other things. Kinda ruined it for me! You've been warned!
