Daily MelWear: Seasonal Confusion

Florida weather is weird. One day it can be 49 degrees and then a couple of days later it can be almost 80.

Guess which kind of day it is today?

I figured since it felt more spring-like, I'd dress for that.

Now I realize the orange bracelet doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the outfit, but I don't really care. It's a leukemia awareness bracelet that was given out at Jamie's service yesterday and I hope you don't mind it, because you'll probably be seeing it on me for a while.

Check out these earrings! Aren't they fantastic?! They're a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law, she bought them on their trip to Hawaii over Thanksgiving. I love them!

Since I feel like my life lately is set to the tune of your stereotypical country song (complete with the part about how my cat died...), I'll spare you whining. HOWEVER - I will ask for you to do something for me! Every single one of you, INCLUDING those of you that read but have never commented before.

Will you please leave a comment with a joke? I need some laughs lately. Tell me something funny!

Thanks guys - you're the best!

Today's outfit:
Skirt: Target
Silk Blouse: Gift from ML
Brown Jacket: Ross...I think...
Pink Flats: Target
Pink Belt: Salvation Army
Turtle Earrings: Gift from my mother-in-law
Orange Bracelet: Because Jamie will forever live in our hearts


  1. I am the worse comedian EVER. Seriously. The only joke I have committed to memory is from a joke book I had when I was 8 - 'nough said.

    It goes something like: "what holiday do buffalo celebrate?"


  2. Q: How many hipsters does it take to change a light bulb?

    A:...It's a really obscure number, you've probably never heard of it.

    XOXO <3

  4. Ugh, I'm so not funny - but I like your outfit, no joke!

  5. Your Outfit is so cute.

    Here a story for you. When we took my dad to PF Changs. He told the waiter he going to tell his friend to go to PF China. We had to tell him it was PF Changs. Then he said to the waiter Dave. I will also tell them to have you are a waitress. We like dad it a waiter. Dave said I will be your waitress anytime.

    I hope you have a good day.

    Also yesterday and guy was giving his wife money and another lady asked for money and he yell ever loud I don't sleep with you. The lady started to laugh.

    I'm not very funny either - seriously. However, I did want to tell you that, when I check it out, I enjoy your blogs. Love the new turtle earrings from Hawaii (I have good taste, no?)

    Also, I wanted to express how sorry I am for your losses - I know how much you loved Fig and how much you thought of Jamie. It's been a tough start to the year. It can only get better. Keep your chin up!

  7. You look lovely. I'm no goo at jokes, but B's favorite thing to say right now is,"Hey mom what up? Chicken Butt."

  8. What did sushi A say to Sushi B?

    "Wassa B?" (Get it, Wasabi - What's up B"

    errr...yeah I'm no comedian either. I hope you feel better!

  9. Why couldn't the pirate get into the movie?

    Because it was rated "aarrrrr".

    My four year old son told me that one last night.

  10. A horse walks into a bar and the bartender says why the long face? Cheesy but maybe cheesy enough to illicit a smile.

  11. I think the bracelet goes~ Something about orange and blue always reminds me of an ocean (note: I live in the middle of the continent, so oceans are foreign to me), and orange and fuchsia remind me of sunsets. Oceans and sunsets are both good things in my books!

    Here are two jokes for you! When my friend was diagnosed with cancer a couple years ago, I didn't have the words to express myself, or give him solace, so I sent him a joke a day until he went into remission. To this day, his kids still think of me as the joke lady.

    A magician was driving down the road... then he turned into a drive way.

    Why don't aliens eat clowns?
    Because they taste funny.

    I love the first one, but only people will really corny senses of humour tend to appreciate it!

  12. I can't think of any jokes right off the top of my head, but I'll tell you that you look great today instead! does that work?

  13. What did the fish say when it ran into the brick wall?


    I've never found a joke I like better than that one! :) And I love your orange leukemia bracelet!

  14. A linguistics professor was lecturing his class one day.

    'In English', he said, 'A double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative.'

    A loud voice from the back of the room piped up, 'Yeah, right.'

  15. It's not really a joke but my dad says it all the time can't remember the source:

    Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like bananas.

    Yeah that's the best I could do, sorry! Enjoy that sunshine I'm super jealous!!

  16. I know it's kind of lame but this one always makes me smile -

    Q - What's a pirate's favorite type of socks.


  17. Ilove the ruffles and the striped skirt!
    I am not good with 4 year old just told me...knock knock...who's you mommy!!
    ok, not funny

  18. I don't have any good jokes, but you look great today. I'm jealous of your warm weather. We are expecting more snow up here in the Northeast. Big surprise, huh???

  19. You guys have been making me laugh all day long!!! Thank you! Keep the jokes coming! :)

  20. I'm an English major so I have a grammar joke!

    Knock knock
    Who's there?
    Too who?
    Don't you mean to WHO?!!

    Bwah ha ha ha

    Love your cute outfit. I am in Orlando and I love the seventies weather we've had the last couple of days. :) I've opened up the house to let the breeze go through while I'm cleaning this week. It's been lovely.

  21. HI Hunnie...Im home:) I love the pastel colors in your outfit....really really pretty on you....and I personally think the bracelet is the best part :)
    You are in my thoughts and prayers you:)

    Stop by and say Hello:)
    Come be a part of my new online fashion magazine!!♥

  22. Spotted on a bulletin board earlier today:

    I comes before E except after C


    Keep smiling - it makes you extra pretty!

  23. Man, I hate trying to outfox the weather. It's hot, it's cold, it's hot, it’s cold. Crazy. But you're doing a lovely job as always. Love the belt.
    As for a joke:

    Q - Did you hear about the dyslexic, the atheist, and the insomniac?

    A - They stayed up all night wondering if there really was a dog.

  24. darn, someone beat me to my joke! umm...

    what did the digital clock say to his mama?

    "look, ma, no hands!"

  25. I love your outfit! The dress is really cute! And I think the bracelet is awesome! The earrings are fabulous too! Oh... here's a joke. When crossing some railroad tracks a friend would *always* say, "Hey everyone, a train has been here." Of course we were supposed to respond, "How do you know?", and he would answer: "It left its' tracks."
