Maxi dress time again!
I kind of want to buy another one because I like this one so much, but I think I’ve done all my clothes-related spending for the month so it’ll have to wait.
I wore this to a short workday (summer Fridays are pretty nice, not gonna lie) and then to an after-work get-together that involved tasty burgers and cold cucumber-yogurt soup. It’s not hard to get me to come out if there’s free food involved.
This weekend was a little rough, mental-health wise, but it’s a good reminder that nobody’s going to take care of this for me, so I have to take a deep breath and start the ball rolling myself.
The hardest part is having confidence that this is worth doing, that I am worth getting help, but I’ve got a lot of love and support, and I need to do something before everybody gets tired of encouraging me, right?! (Oh, I’ve only been talking about this since…December…)
I shouldn’t sound melodramatic, though. A lot of the weekend was really quite nice! I’ve been spending some time crafting lately–I’ve recently become a novice cross-stitcher, and I dyed some garments on Saturday, and I’ve also been playing with this finger-knit jersey bracelet tutorial; instead of buying a length of jersey from the fabric store, I got a couple of t-shirts from Goodwill and shredded them ruthlessly for practice. My first successful bracelet is definitely a bit homemade-looking, but I like it, and it’ll probably go well with my lazier, more freewheeling weekend outfits.
How are you doing, friends? Are you about as incoherent as I’m feeling right now?
