I originally decided to wear this necklace on the 30th to celebrate the last day of Pride month, and tiredly built the outfit around it when I got up at 6:30am. I thought it was pretty fly at the time, but then I got to work, woke up a bit, and was concerned that I looked a little bit like a gay pride milkmaid. I got a couple of compliments on it during the day, though, so maybe the Gay Pride Milkmaid look is in right now.
An interesting fact: Empalme, the city where I got this scarf, is the sister city of the town I live in now. It’s about 9 kilometers from Guaymas, the port city in Mexico where my dad lives. I got the scarf a couple of years ago when visiting him for Christmas. (In case you haven’t noticed from this outfit, I’m kind of a sucker for rainbows.)
Please ignore my alarming toes. I was just excited about the little sprout coming out of the ground. Also, I have been wearing these sandals so much this summer that I am getting a crazy crisscrossed sandal tan on my feet. Are sandal tans better or worse than swimsuit tans?
After work, I ended up wearing this outfit out to dinner at a crepe restaurant with Mike. Great idea or greatest idea? They were celebrating their one-year anniversary, so Mike got the special: pulled pork in a cornmeal crepe. I got smoked salmon and scrambled egg in a buckwheat crepe, dressed with chives, capers, and sour cream. Did I mention that food is the greatest?
In other news, Tia and I will be taking tomorrow off to enjoy the holiday! See y’all on Tuesday and have a happy extended weekend! (Or a normal ol’ July 4th if you don’t get that off. In which case, happy normal ol’ July 4th!)
