Ohmigod, how is it only Tuesday? In a bout of wishful thinking, I kept referring to today as Thursday in both classes, because, man, this has been a full week already. Fortunately, I have a glorious writing day tomorrow so hopefully things will return to an even keel — or at least I’ll have a clue about what the day of the week is. Maybe. In the meantime, I’m listening to the new albums by Chvrches and Haim on repeat and having mini-dance breaks in my office to get me through.
Well, this dress went on sale. So I bought it in the navy & maroon color. And I think I like it even more than the black & tan: note to self, wear that dress on St. Patrick’s Day.
I tried it out with my style soul mate Anne’s suggestion of a chambray tied over top, which looked awesome and is definitely something I’ll be doing when it cools down here.
I wore this today in an attempt to make “dress for the weather you want, not the weather you have” a thing. So far I have been unsuccessful, but I will persevere. When I got up this morning, I just couldn’t face down an October without sleeves. Plus, even though it’s gotten (very slightly) cooler here, my office A/C is still stuck on Antarctic so I was freezing in there both yesterday and today.
Here’s a detail shot, as well, of the boots which were a late spring purchase last year and, thus, got limited wear and never received a proper close up.
How are your Octobers shaping up? It’s the month of my birthday so it’s clearly a really important month.
