Sad story and upcoming vacation

Tee: Target
Skirt: I made it
Belt: Target
Sandals: Chinese Laundry
Earrings: Turkey
Scarf: J Crew
Kitteh: Elefante

True story: late on the evening of the fifth, Pirata, our other kitten disappeared. We live in the country and there are coyotes and big herding dogs that just kind of...roam. One of them must've roamed off with our other kitten.

So, I'm pretty sad about it, and now probably way overprotective of our remaining fur babies, Kiku and Elefante. The irony is that she disappeared on a day when we were all home all day long.

Anyway, we're on our short school vacation here in Costa Rica. We're off until the 18th, and then we leave for our real vacation on the 24th. I. Am. So. Excited! Development work requires even longer hours than teaching, and I'm doing both, so, long, busy days. But! Vacation is in sight.

And vacations make me do the happy dance. Oh, yeah! Even if it's a little tempered by the loss of our sweet kitten.

ETA: Pirata came back on the morning of the 8th. I walked out to feed Elefante, and there she was, meowing away as if I'd run away.


  1. Oh I'm SO sorry! I love kittens and that makes me so sad.

    But you look super cute. Hopefully that'll help...? :/

    Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

  2. I'm sorry about your kitten. Maybe she's just hiding somewhere. I really like your skirt!

  3. Awww, that is terrible! Your poor baby.
    I'll keep my fingers crossed she's just hiding in a tree and will come home.

    Also, I'm loving your skirt, and i hope you have a fun vacation!

  4. She's back! I went out this morning, and there she was.
    I've struggled to love this skirt, because the hem is uneven and the pockets are wonky, but it's grown on me.

  5. Thanks! She did return, so I'm happy about that. Also, I'm pretty happy about this skirt - I made it out of a curtain I thrifted and it's my first sewing project pretty much ever.

  6. Hahaha! Thanks. The good thing is that she returned this morning - safe and sound!

  7. Aw, I'm so glad! That makes me feel better!!! :)

  8. I'm so glad Pirata made it back!!
    I really love this skirt!

  9. The disappearance of your kitty must have been scary. I'm glad she came back. I'm super impressed at your ability to make a skirt, out of a curtain no less! I need to learn how to do that.

  10. Yay for the happy ending to the sad cat story! glad she came home!
    You look so pretty in this combination. I love the way you threw on the scarf. It adds so much interest and depth to the outfit!

  11. I love, love love this skirt!!
