…yes I do.  It’s short in front and long at back.  Do you guys know this Vandal’s song?!  It cracks me up, as does the video collage of excellent mullets.

Only it’s my tank which is short in front and long at back.  What do you think?  I keep seeing this trend everywhere – shirts, skirts, dresses.  Do you guys remember way back in the 90’s when those skirts were in style that were long at one side and short at the other?  Well, if you’ve still got one give it a quarter turn and you’re bang on!

You know what else?  It was cold, and quite clearly snowy, so I tucked my trousers into my boots.  I like it, you may not…

And I don’t give a damn cause I am what I am even if it’s really, really bad. Chuckle chuckle!  Such great lyrics.  Not exactly poetic but they make me smile.

Have a great weekend and don’t forget to live it up today for Fat Friday!

    Got to love Fat Friday! In our house when the Scottish Blood Transfusion service make their visits to our area, we have “Eat Anything Thursday” – because as you’re giving a pint of blood you get to eat whatever you want – and we did. (Not to mention that the blood transfusion folk didn’t make it to Skye because of the weather yesterday, but our intentions were good!)

    Hi! OMG I fell in love with your blog, you have awesome style! I really like the boots and the pants in this pic ;). You have a new follower, and I hope we can stay in touch in the future. Take care!

    Lovely images, but you must be freezing! I can see why you tucked the pants into the boots (and I would never scoff at that – you work it!).

    That necklace is killer, by the way. I know it isn’t, but it reminds me of a piece by Mr. Kate.
