Is it really an outfit if I wore it to clean house and threw a necklace on to run some errands?

20151011-IMG_4946

I say yes, which is why it’s on here. If you disagree, then YOU send me some outfit pictures and I’ll put them up on the blog!

20151011-IMG_4950

I mean that. Hit me up! Be a blog buddy!

And if not, well, then, come clean my house or something so I can wear more complicated outfits. I think that’s only fair.

This outfit was pretty much inevitable, I think. It was just a matter of time.

20151009-IMG_4929

It works, right? I mean, I think it does, and I’m okay if you don’t. Life is a rich tapestry!

20151009-IMG_4932

Honestly, it’s not that surprising a mix to have made, even though it felt really edgy when I was getting dressed this morning. Same-size florals, both with pink/yellow/orange. Like I said, inevitable.

20151009-IMG_4935

did manage to keep from wearing my Labor Day Pow-Wow earrings, which itself feels inevitable every time I wear these pants.

20151009-IMG_4937

Those earrings, these pants, and these sandals. They make a very compelling case for themselves.

At work I wasn’t sure if the purple socks worked with this outfit, but here I think they do. Sometimes you just have to take a chance on purple socks, am I right?

This bracelet, on the other hand, perfectly matches the blue on the shirt’s right shoulder–clearly the artisan who made the bracelet was colluding with the designers at Desigual, since they’re both based out of Barcelona and every artist in Barcelona knows one another.

Anyway. This shirt makes it easy to strike out in bold color directions since it’s made of so many bold color directions itself.

It probably wouldn’t go with burnt sienna, let’s say, but I’m okay with that.

I bought this bralette a while back because–admission–I saw it on Pinterest and it looked really great for wearing under tops that won’t accommodate a traditional bra. (This is why I’ve stopped using Pinterest.)

20150926-IMG_4842

And it’s cute, right? Look:

20150926-IMG_4843

But it’s itchy, which I really should have expected, and even with the fancy back it still looks like underwear peeking out, you know? So it doesn’t get as much mileage as I was originally expecting.

20150926-IMG_4844

Now, I’ve been eyeing the yellow and aquamarine versions, because I think the bright colors would work better for me, but I’m not sure putting up with the itchies will be worth it. I think I need to find another style of cute visible bralette, or dispatch a bra-loving friend to find me one. How about it, pals? Or should I say, brahs?

I had no idea when I wrote the post from two Fridays ago that I’d already talked about my ball chair at work three months before that. Oops.

20150925-IMG_4827

I am given to repeat myself, it seems.

20150925-IMG_4829

Actually, you probably already knew that; I’ve probably already written about it on here, even. I have a tendency to tell the same stories over and over and to forget what I’ve already said to most of the people I see every day.

20150925-IMG_4833

That’s another very human foible, but it is embarrassing when I unintentionally write the same blog post two or three times. My life must not be terribly interesting, because evidently I run out of topics! I’ll try to get myself into a couple of scraps and/or adventures sometime soon so I have something new to tell you all about.

Got my flu shot yesterday! (That’s the thing you can see on my arm there. I usually like to write something on the band-aid, and this year ended up with “THE POX.”)

20150924-IMG_4812

My workplace makes it easy to get a shot–they usually put on a couple of clinics at the beginning of flu season so that pharmacy students can practice their needle-poking skills–but even if you have to make a special trip, I highly encourage you to do so.

20150924-IMG_4813

From what I’ve read, this year’s vaccine is supposed to be quite effective, and it’s good to get yourself immunized not just for yourself but also for the safety of people who can’t get the shot this year.

20150924-IMG_4814

You’ve probably heard this spiel at least once already, but it’s a subject that’s important to my heart. Jessica’s death was ultimately due to flu complications, and I’d selfishly prefer not to lose more friends that way. So put on something with short or easy-to-roll-up sleeves and go get that shot, eh?

(You can probably guess that I don’t take much stock in anti-vax points of view for a variety of reasons, and I probably won’t be very interested if anyone brings it up in the comments. Thanks, pals!!!!!!!)
