Even though it is snowing today, and Monday, I feel pretty good. I had absolutely no idea what I was going to wear when I dragged myself out of bed (half an hour late) this morning, but this outfit came together quite nicely. I imagine this is the way a love child of a train conductor and a hobo might dress :)
(jacket: uo via goodwill; shirt/hat: uo; jeans: paris blues; boots: seychelles; scarf: thrifted)
This outfit is very Urban Outfitters-heavy, but everything is several seasons old. I picked up this perfect-fit jacket at Goodwill a few months ago and have been saving it for spring and summer. It couldn't possibly fit any better if it was made just for me. I also decided to pull out my flare jeans this morning, which have been carted around and sat in the back of my various closets over the past several years, without ever once making it onto my body. As I've mentioned before, I don't often wear jeans, but these are so soft and comfortable and fit so well that I've kept them around... just in case! Hooray for pack rats!
I had a lovely weekend spent doing not much of anything, again. When K and I woke up (late) on Saturday, I suggested that we go to a matinee. We went to see Limitless, which was a huge disappointment. It was one of those great concept movies that tries to float by on novelty and just kind of flops. Plus, it was so gross at one point the movie may have been ruined by that scene alone... it was a lot more American Psycho than I expected it to be (a bit much for a relaxing Saturday afternoon). Anyway, we stopped off at Goodwill afterward so K could search for plates to put his plants on and I ended up scoring a few awesome items for our apartment.
Sunday was spent shifting between writing, reading Walden and watching I Capture the Castle and Frida instantly on Netflix while drinking tea and eating sandwiches. Once I realized that all I really need to do to be content is to watch excellent films, read excellent books and continue to progress on my novel, I became very excited for the rest of my life (haha!). Well, for now, anyway. I'm really looking forward to spending my free time watching period films and artistic biopics in the coming weeks :)
