OOTD: Twist & Shout

This is what I'm wearing today to stay at home, work, organize, cook, and walk Sam! It was a busy day. Lots to organize for Dad, but so far so good.   

Our stay-at-home order will not be lifted soon, so we're carrying on.... in quarantine......doing our thing.  A happy and calm little family of three. Grateful. Governor is announcing our next steps tomorrow. 

The daily drill for my AT HOME LOOK: shower, 11 week old haircut that has found a new sweet spot, shoved behind my ears!, some make-up, an outfit that panders to my feelings when I get dressed, at home only sneakers, and some important accessories.

I CAN TWIST AGAIN WITHOUT PAIN - 5 and a half months after my fall. WOOOHOOO :)

Today, I felt like a dressier look. With loafers or boots, I'd have worn this to a client meeting. But you know - sneaks for at home!

Lots of twisting poses to celebrate my twisting.

I LOVE trendy '80s pants!

I LOVE short jackets! 

I LOVE modern classic tops! 

I LOVE blue, red and white! Pink mellows things a bit and adds some pretty.

I LOVE dots and checks!

So here you go. And Sam prefers to model on his own.

Thanks for looking! Back to being a busy bee...xo

P.s. no outfit posts on Fridays. I take Angie-time and therapeutically scrub the house in a scrubbing dress :)

    Plaid and polka dots - a fun combo!   And Sam is so cute.

  • Kathie replied 3 months ago

    Dots and checks- a happy combo! Sam is as adorable as ever. And, based on the metrics that our governor announced, we'll be joining you in continuing to be safer-at-home. Solidarity!

  • ChristelJ replied 3 months ago

    It's wonderful to see your happy twist poses! How fantastic you are so much better. Hooray!
    That is my favorite shirt of yours, and the entire spunky outfit is just right. Enjoy your Friday, even though it involves scrubbing.

  • Debbie replied 3 months ago

    Love your red jacket. The whole outfit is amazing!

  • Becky replied 3 months ago

    Love the color-coordinated pattern mixing + that beautiful red jacket. Just looking at darling Sam is therapeutic.

  • nemosmom replied 3 months ago

    Love your pattern mix - and GREAT news about your back! A huge milestone! Congrats!!  Enjoy your Angie-time - you deserve it!

  • Lucy replied 3 months ago

    Gorgeous! I love spots and stripes, but have not tried with checks. You've got me thinking ... 

  • rachylou replied 3 months ago

    Good for you, Angie! Great twists, great outfit! :)

  • anne replied 3 months ago

    So please about your back Angie and that's a lovely refined outfit.

  • shevia replied 3 months ago

    So happy that you can twist again! Your outfits are always just right - but the red jacket brings this to a whole other level. I love how Sam looks up at you every time. I admire Washington's cautious approach but still hope you get a bit more freedom soon :) .

  • slim cat replied 3 months ago

    Fab outfit and fun twisting posing ( "Twist&Shout" is now successfully playing in my head with your pictures dancing in rhythm ;) ).
    Great pics - fav #18 with Sam.
    Happy to hear you are feeling good and healthy - enjoy your Friday!

  • Christina F. replied 3 months ago

    You look great! Congrats on the healing. 


    I wish I knew how to scrub my place well. We miss our cleaning lady dearly, as we are both terrible at it. We’re both working our normal full weeks from home, which doesn’t help. Maybe I should try it in a dress-maybe that’s the secret! 

  • Firecracker replied 3 months ago

    Wow! Love the dots and checks and this beautiful red on you! Congratulations on your healing. That's something to twist and shout about!

  • Firecracker replied 3 months ago

    Oh, and pic 18: swoon! (Sam kinda steals the show there.)

  • catherine replied 3 months ago

    It sounds like your physical therapy paid off. Good for you you for sticking with it! Your hair looks cool.

  • lisa p replied 3 months ago

    So happy to hear you are moving without pain - that’s so important for body AND soul . Another great outfit - and seriously , Angie , how much more organizing can one possibly do ?

  • kellygirl replied 3 months ago

    This one knocks it out of the park! You must feel as exuberant as you look being able to move without pain! Sam is adorable too. Fab outfit, Angie! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous style with us! It's such a pleasure to see what you are wearing!

  • Runcarla replied 3 months ago

    Your good recovery news outshines a stellar outfit.  Have a good Angie Day.  I guess every day is a Sam Day?!

  • suntiger replied 3 months ago

    You can twist again- like you did last summer :)

  • Cee replied 3 months ago

    Sam looks cuter than a rampaging horde of Viking kittens !

  • Cee replied 3 months ago

    Granted, a lot depends on what kind of mood they're in.

  • suntiger replied 3 months ago

    Awwww Viking kittens :)

  • Bijou replied 3 months ago

    Viking kittens!!!

    Angie - so fab that you can twist again - your celebratory outfit is beautiful.

  • Janet replied 3 months ago

    That’s great that you have your mobility back!

    You put most of us to shame — how is it you manage to look even more spectacular than ever, at a time when I can barely even bear to look in the mirror? I swear I’ve aged two years in two months.

  • Brooklyn replied 3 months ago

    I want the plaid pants! But I want full length :) Love the pattern mix too. And great that you can twist. YLF!

    But I think you were upstaged by the Viking kittens downstream. Awwwwe.

  • Angie replied 3 months ago

    Thanks so much, ladies. It feels GREAT to be on the mend. The body is not in perfect working order yet - but getting there.


    JAileen, go Team Blue!

    Kathie,  a united stay at home HIGH FIVE.

    ChristelJ, it’s my favourite shirt too.

    Thanks Rachy, Anne, Suntiger, Catherine, and Cee. Adorable kittens!

    Debbie, you need a red jacket to match your new red sandals :)

    Becky, Nemosmom, Slim Cat, JaimeBijou and Kellygirl, thank you for being flawlessly gracious, positive and kind in your comments. 

    Lucy, you’ve been challenged to wear dots with checks!

    Lisa P, YES. Sooooo good for body, mind and spirit. (There is a lot to keep up with daily, with my vulnerable and fragile Dad alone abroad in the middle of a world pandemic. You’d be surprised!)

    Christina, I never thought about it that way! I miss my cleaning crew too…...

    Firecracker, of course Sam steals the show!

    RunCarla, YES to every day being Sam Day! :)

    Janet, you look GREAT on my computer screen!

    Brooklyn, You'd look fab in these pants! The kittens are cute, but don’t upstage Sam :)

  • lisa p replied 3 months ago

    Oh yes, I am not surprised at how much "work" goes in to managing your dad's life . When you talk of organizing, I think of cleaning out cupboards etc. Sorry for misunderstanding :)  

  • karen13 replied 3 months ago

    Yes please, to one of each piece of your outfit - love this ensemble so much. So happy to hear (and see) your movement mojo is coming back! I need to build some therapy type stretching into my schedule to head off some issues and this is a good nudge!

  • Angie replied 3 months ago

    Lisa P, oooh, there is nothing left to organize in our home - only clean for therapeutic reasons have the time.....

    Karen 13, I can see you in the pants and shirt! 

  • smittie replied 3 months ago

    My favourite colours! Sam is so cute. He looks like a great companion, full of vim and vigour.

  • Eliza replied 3 months ago

    Angie- You rock those looks and brighten everyone's day in so many ways. Thanks for sharing. Keep dancing! 

  • Laurie replied 3 months ago

    Pain relief is beautifully apparent - congratulations, and good job doing the hard work to get there.
    Glad you are taking Angie days.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  • torontogirl replied 3 months ago

    Excellent pattern mix!

  • mtnsofthemoon replied 3 months ago

    Happy dance for your progress!  Loving the outfit - I am still astonished at how talented you are at mixing windowpane, polka dots and color.  Eye candy for me ;-) and my fav red color to splash things up!   

  • The Cat replied 3 months ago

    Pretty outfit. Love the pattern mix.

  • Angie replied 3 months ago

    Thanks The Cat and Helena!

    Smittie, Sam is extraordinary and incomparably therapeutic :)

    Laurie, Mtnsofthemoon and Eliza, thanks for your ongoing gracious words. 

  • bonnie replied 3 months ago

    Looking at the finds, I would never guess how fab they look worn together. Glad to see you are back to twisting and shouting. 

  • Style Fan replied 3 months ago

    Great to see you twisting and shouting!  Yeah!

  • Cee replied 3 months ago

    I've named the Viking kittens Headbite Mousersson and Ketchup the Red.

  • JP replied 3 months ago

    Great outfits , I like the combinations and I love the short jacket. But, more importantly I am really happy that you can twist again!

  • Angie replied 3 months ago

    Thanks for the kind words, and giggles ladies :)

  • Suz replied 3 months ago

    Gorgeous outfit, Angie! I love the subtle pattern mix and the red! SOOOOO glad you can move with ease and joy again! What a boon. 

  • Karie replied 3 months ago

    So glad to read you are moving without pain! 
    I adore that polka dot top and Sam is as cute as ever.

  • Marilyn replied 3 months ago

    Love this look, Angie.  And the red jacket.....Swoon! :)

    Happy to hear that you're on the mend.

  • Angie replied 3 months ago

    Thanks so much sweet Suz and Karie, for always being flawlessly gracious.

  • lyn67 replied 3 months ago

    Nr 18 is my fave, love your mix of  bigger dots and grid + and patriotic colors, hair is more than fab, too! YalwaysLF Angie!:-)

  • Angie replied 3 months ago

    Thanks for the sweet words, Marilyn and Lyn67. You are always so nice! 

  • K. Period. replied 3 months ago

    OMG! Angie, unbeknownst to me, I purchased the exact pants you are modeling when I was in Seattle this winter. How wonderful! Inadvertent twinsies! This made my day. :)
