Just when I thought this week was turning around - my mom gets in a car accident this morning. HORRIBLE!
Apparently, some elderly lady came barreling out of a driveway and smashed directly into my mom. Everyone is fine, thank god, but my mom's car spun a couple of times. Ugh. She is so tiny. Hate to think about it.
The lady begged her not to call the police but my mom's no sucker. The police said it was 100 percent the other driver's fault so the insurance will kick in and everything will be fine.
We talked in the evening and she was still shaken up. Have to realize it takes longer to recover from brushes with our mortality the older we get.
Plus she was also emotional because I called her and left her a message saying 'I love you' right as the accident was happening!! Weird, no? We are spooky connected like that...ALOT.
To add insult to injury today, Mr. Diabolina finds out something rather disappointing about a co-worker. Something that shows poor judgment on that person's part and bums Mr. D out. My mister is such a stand-up guy and the consummate professional. Tough seeing him demoralized by others' missteps. Blech.
All night both of us are mopey. And the heat makes us fussy like babies. Not the best start to the weekend.

No picture of me because MY CAMERA CRAPPED OUT TODAY!!!!! Seriously this has got to be the WORST day in recent memory.
Thankfully Mr. D had the day off and decided to buy me a new pretty purple Coolpix this afternoon. He is a prince. He knows how important the blogging's become to me and knew how rough this week had been for me. Yay for boys who get it!
Built today's outfit around the $9 scarf that I got with my mom last weekend. So mercurial. Conjures brightly attired maidens dancing around a maypole. Forgive me. My nerdy inner English major loves to rear her head at times with the references.
I completely missed the scarf while roaming the For Love 21 store. Likely too overwhelmed to focus. But as we were walking away it caught my eye in the fab window display. The print instantly reminded us of a dress my mom had when I was little. Love how the colors all work so harmoniously - then and now.
This am nearly paired the scarf with a jersey black dress. You know, to mourn my camera's death. But decided to not be so melodramatic. Grabbed a lighter less expected combo instead.
This blue dress has become a go-to favorite. Today felt a bit chunk in the trunk in it due to all the pleating. But I know the color really does wonders for the skin tone so I opted to look like a fattie with nice coloring.
Thinking I will try to pick up the red in the scarf next time. Maybe with some Marc Jacobs accessories. The scarf has a vaguely retro vibe that feels more than a little MJ, no?
Or maybe I just desperately love all things Marc and they make me happy and I so desperately want to feel happy after a rough week ;)
