Is anyone else kind of burnt out on outfit photos? I think it’s the summer and my weight gain since last summer. I have clothes I can’t wear anymore, and as a result, I have fewer clothes to wear. PLUS, it’s summer and layering is a no go. Dear Fall, please hurry. The outfits you bring are more interesting, versatile and better at hiding that serving of fries I just ate, even though I said I wouldn’t.
Have I worn this skirt on the blog before? I know I’ve worn it a couple times but I can’t recall where and my co-workers seemed to think it was new, but it’s not. It’s by mark and it is reversible and very comfortable. The other side is plain black though and I have that covered so I doubt I’ll ever wear it that way. I bought it for the gorgeous stained glass window-esque print you see here.
I have heard some of you kids complaining about the heat where you are and saying “It was 95 degrees” and I just want you all to know, we consider that a cool front. I am serious. On the news this AM they referred to our upcoming 95 degree weather and a cool front moving in and I laughed. Then the weather guy pointed out that 95 is in fact 10 degrees cooler than we have been running on average.
I am reading “Handling The Undead” by John Ajvide Lindqvist, who also wrote the amazing “Let The Right One In”. It’s not due out here for a while, but I asked Caroline if she minded picking it up for me, because it was available in the UK already, in PAPERBACK! So we set up a swap. I sent her a couple pieces of jewelry I made for her and she sent me this book, which is amazing and I cannot recommend it enough. I also highly recommend “Let The Right One In” even if you have seen the movie, because it was one of the best books I’ve ever read. Rich and dark and involving.
