If you answered D to the above question, you are correct! I am not having a good day, as you may have surmised from the title of this post. The awesome and amazing thing I alluded to last week did not pan out as I had hoped (although not hopeless) and on top of that I feel as though I have been a bit "checked out" of this blog, lacking focus and inspiration. Bah, having realized all that, I am determined to get caught up this week. I feel like this happens every April, or even every Spring, life just gets 1,000 times more complicated right before Summer. I'm sorry, I don't want to sound like I'm whining or being a baby, I just felt as though an explanation was needed as to why I've been so... Weird? Uncooperative? Flaky? Flaky. That's it, the perfect word: Flaky. I have been super f'ing flaky.
Anyways, on to my outfit! Whew! Sorry! Last week Chris and I made a quick stop to Savers (quick being used loosely here) where he came across this awesome vintage silk men's shirt. It has Native Americans all over it! Being too small for him (and questionable for Chris to don a silk shirt in the first place), it ended up in MY cart. It's actually big enough to be a dress if I wanted it to be, but I like it belted and flounced out. To even things out with the flouncy top and skinny jeans, I added a pair of huge platforms that make me about 10 inches taller than I should be.
Also, this isn't clothing related but isn't this beautiful:
I walk under this flowering canopy on the way from my apartment to work every morning and afternoon and I think it's just so beautiful. Every Spring, our town is filled with plum blossoms on these trees. I think because it's been so cold, the flowers have stayed around much longer than usual.
And another side note: Today is
