Well, that short blog break sure turned into an unintentional three-and-a-half-week vacation! Welcome back, me.
New Orleans was great fun–I’ll try to share some pictures here if and when I get my act together. Work stuff was good, I got to see some old friends and meet some new ones in person for the first time, and I was blessed enough to gaze upon a wedding dress made for a dog.
Since we’ve been back, I’ve somehow found my wardrobe…unsatisfying. Everything still fits and all, but I’ve had a lot of trouble putting together outfits that make me feel good, and I end up just “wearing clothes.”
I’m trying to figure out ways around this without buying a ton of new things, but somehow my solution so far has been to buy, hmm, a few new things? I have recently retired some garments that didn’t work for me anymore, so I don’t feel too bad working a handful of new (and mainly new-to-me, to be fair) items into my closet and drawers. Maybe they’ll help my more well-worn feel refreshed!
This particular outfit is all old stuff, and in fact is only a slight variation on this one from 2013. Why not copy myself from two years ago, anyway? What am I gonna do, take myself to small claims court?
