I've had some unexpected days off from work this week, and frankly I'm feeling more human than I have since the beginning of October. I'm caught up on sleep and getting back to life, and finally cleaning my disastrous apartment! I've spent the day listening to Maine Public Radio and calling friends and family members that I have neglected to contact for far too long. It feels good to take control again. Why is it so easy to allow these sort of things to slip by unnoticed? All of a sudden it's December and almost a whole new year. Whew!
To celebrate my relaxed state of mind, a relaxed outfit! I rarely wear jeans, due in part because I rarely find a pair that I actually like. I've had this pair from H&M for over five years, there are belt loops missing and the waistband has to be cinched tightly with a belt to stay up, but they still look good, and that's good enough for me. For a top, I chose a classic breton-stripe bateau tee and paired it with a second-hand boys blazer. I love blue and brown together, so on with a skinny belt and straw hat (straw in winter? I say why not!) and a favorite pair of scuffed up loafers. Recently someone asked for a close-up shot of these shoes (from this post), so here they are in all their destroyed glory. Perhaps this makes me weird, but I love the quirks of vintage shoes. These are two different colors, and I had to re-attach the sole of the right one with Shoe Goo (it works but wear a face-mask while you use it), but I love them.
Are you so excited for the weekend? I am! Tomorrow Chris and I are driving to my step-grandparent's house in Cape Cod, I can't wait to get out of town! Thank you to everyone who said kind things about my new hair, I know bangs are not quite as exciting as a whole new haircut, but I feel like a totally different person. Have a great weekend!
