The World Continually Expands

I don't usually bring a purse into outfit photos, because I carry the same tan bag every single day. People who manage multiple purses impress me. It's just so much work to switch stuff over and make sure it's all organized in the pockets and whatnot. However, I've been using this little yellow bag to hold my phone and keys when I walk the dog. (Recently I got a gig walking my neighbor's dog on weekdays. Hooray for gas money!)

My sleeveless red blouse is made of rough-textured silk. I wanted to identify the specific fabric, but apparently there are many different types of silk. Whenever I try to research something, I discover that there's much more to know about any given topic than I have time to absorb. It's overwhelming, but also heartening--I'll never run out of interesting things to read!

Speaking of reading, I just finished the title story of A River Runs Through It. Wow. Norman Maclean's writing is superbly lovely.

  1. Hmm... looks/sounds like silk noil, but I am not sure if I like their definition. Noil is also known as Raw Silk. It's one of my favorite silks because of it's soft but grainy texture - akin to silk/linen blend, but less rough on the skin. Regardless, you look tres chic with your mustard yellow bag!

    1. That was my instinct, but the existence of "linen silk" and other stuff makes me wonder. I'd need to actually feel them all. Thank you!

    Yes! Nothing takes me down a peg like realizing I don't even know enough to ask an intelligent question, you know? But I too love how damn enormous the world is. And there'll be so much more knowledge produced in our lifetimes, too! We'll never keep up, but it's fun to try.

    1. Exactly! It's that quote attributed to Socrates: "The wisest man is he who knows that he knows nothing." True of ladies too =P

  3. Geez, what beautiful scenery! I carry the same bag everyday, too, and it's about that size lol.

  4. I never run out of interesting things to read on the internet either! Learning is fun!
    Also I completely feel you with the bags. Changing purses is such a pain. I basically use two bags. A small one when I don't need my camera and my camera bag purse. And even that is too much work!

  5. I carry the same purse every day too. Maybe about every 6 months I'll switch to my ONE other purse option if I'm feeling wild.
