So, it's Monday once again. I'm still getting used to the settings on my camera, so please bear with me... these are still a bit overexposed. This outfit was one of those that just came together without much stress or pain (there's something to be said for that on a Monday morning--maybe it's a sign that this will be a good week). At the last minute, I remember that I finally got my Lulu*s loafers from my mom this weekend (it's been quite the process, shipping to my parent's house back at the beginning of August, exchanging for a new pair at the very last minute, shipping to my parent's house again, and finally putting them on my feet). I think they bring the outfit together perfectly.
(blouse/skirt/belt/scarf: thrifted; blazer: vintage; tights: hue; shoes: lulu*s)
I had a great weekend, even though I went 0 for 2 on my "goals" and ended up being a bit of a bum instead (I'll allow it). Friday I was supposed to go out for karaoke with my gal pals, but was so completely burnt out at the end of an exhausting week that I rescheduled a hang-out for Saturday night, and spent the evening watching documentaries with K instead (Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work and 21 Up [third in the Up series--check it out, it's pretty fascinating]). I guess I'm on quite the documentary kick.
Saturday my mom and I went to Burlington to get new phones, and mine is so pretty I keep picking it up and looking at it. It's not fancy or anything, but it's so fresh and new :) I'm trading in all of my beat up old technological devices for shiny replacements! Anyway, we went out for some Mexican food and margaritas (always good fun--thanks mom!) and picked up my lady friends for a wine night back at my place. We skyped in our friend who is currently out in Portland, and had a lovely evening huddled around the living room with maybe a few too many bottles of vino. The next morning K joined in for brunch at On the Rise, and after taking them home I spent the rest of the day half-napping and watching old favorite films. So no running, no writing, but lots of good people and good times :) Sometimes that's more important anyway.
I definitely feel refreshed and rejuvenated, and I'm ready to take on this week (and so glad to be back in my yellow tights after a summerlong hiatus)!
