OOTD- pink seal

Whew, I just got back from Wilmington (NC) helping the B move in and get settled. (sniff, sniff)

Because I spent most of the beginning part of the week in shorts and t-shirts, I decided to actually try today. :) That means washed hair, makeup and non-t shirt and shorts clothing.

So, I give you today's Outfit of the Day: Pink Seal.

Wrap Cardigan: Moda International (via this li'l store in Charleston, SC called Oops)
Striped Tank: Old Navy
Jeans: Old Navy
Flats: Gap (Christmas gift from my parents. They do know me so well...)

First of all, yes it IS July and I AM wearing jeans and longish sleeves. 1) My office and pretty much the entire building is FREEZING cold with the AC running. 2) The wrap cardigan is very lightweight and a bit sheer. 3) It's a dreary, rainy day today and I didn't want to get wet outside and then freeze in the AC. 

I like the idea of naming my outfit posts.* Do you? I'm calling this one Pink Seal because I have on pink (that part of the name should have been fairly obvious) and seal gray. I don't think that's an official color, but it's one of my faves. It's not light gray (like a rain cloud) and it's not dark gray (like charcoal gray)'s in between. It's the color of one of my favorite zoo animals, the seal.

Side note: Is "seal" short for "sea lion" or are they not the same thing? I should probably Wikipedia that. I'm really not an idiot I just wonder about these things... ;)

*I must confess my slight obsession with naming things. Cars, electronics, house plants and now outfits. I can't help it...


  1. Cute outfit. I love that gray too, only I call it pewter. Oh, and sea lions have ears, seals don't.

  2. I love the naming of the OOTDs. You are very good at it. Didn't you once tell me you'd love to name the streets of a new subdivision?
    Also, seals and sea lions are two slightly different animals, I believe.

  3. I've been considering names for my new camera and kindle. It's a disease called... "Namingitis" :) p.s. Love the outfit! p.p.s. The B being far away is no fun :(

  4. I've never even considered naming my CAMERA!

    Jill, my dream job is subdivision street namer.

    Thanks for y'all's insight for the difference between sea lions and seals!


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
