I am not sure I could have gone any more expected or traditional with my accessories today, but when something works, it works!~
I got this tee at Target when we were in Austin, I got this one and the black and cream striped one I wore last week. I am normally a little scared of stripes. The stories they tell you in school are not lies, they tend to make me look and feel bigger. But something about the cut and the size of the stripes on these actually accentuates my curves in the most flattering way without making me looks big at all. And the fabric is ridiculously soft.
I can’t believe I’m tucking this in. I swear it had been years! And then last week I tucked the other one in and it just really worked. I tried this with the tee out and it looked totally fine, but in, it just looked so much better.
I have reached that point where I know it would be better for my hair if I got a trim, but I’m not ready. I have developed some really weird issues about my hair over the years. I used to have both a reoccurring dream and a very real fear that someone would chop it off from behind me in a nightclub. I have no idea where that came from, but to this day I have a tendency to sweep it to the side and over my shoulder so I can see it when I’m out. And I just can’t imagine ever wearing it short again. I cut it short for the last time when Nathan’s dad was in the hospital getting a heart transplant 13(?*) years ago or so. We went to visit him and in his deeply drugged up state he flat out told me he hated it. I never did it again. Clearly I care what my father-in-law thinks! Give me a month and I’ll get it trimmed.
I know I have too many pictures today, but sometimes you just get a good batch!~ I have not had a good batch in a while cause I keep having sleepy time face every morning. My Blackberry didn’t go off this morning though, and when I looked at it was frozen at the time the alarm should have gone off, and so I had to do a hard reset where you take the battery out, and then it told me it was 7 AM and I almost went back to bed, but instead I checked Nathan’s clock and it told me it was 8 AM. I was so mad. So that got me good and woke up.
I have been having a lot of trouble creating lately. I sit down with my kit and nothing comes. So I was really excited when I made this a couple weeks ago. I think it came out really pretty and simple and classic.
The following is a genuine reaction to the question “Why don’t you do some scissor kicks?”
I did not do any scissor kicks.
One last thing, Weardrobe users...I am on some sort of "0 likes" streak. I was getting 10 or so per look there for a while, and I give them freely whenever I like something. Any advice? Is it just a fluke or did I offend someone? Weardrobe continues to not make much sense to me, but I participate 4-5 days a week.
*I am so bad with remembering how long ago stuff was. We were in collage. We were engaged, but not married, I think. And it was the nineties. Ray, my father-in-law is fine now. His heart is younger than me.
