It's been four days of my summer vacation, and I've already begun to languish in the mundane routine of not having to get dressed (up) everyday.
So, today, I tried my best to be cute enough for my husband's birthday lunch at PF Chang's, cool enough for the hot weather, and relaxed enough to not have to shock my system into being stressed out to "get dressed".
The third goal didn't work out so well. Lol!
I had decided that I wanted to wear jeans, a white tee, and the animal print Halston scarf that I bought from a consignment shop yesterday, but after ten frustrating minutes of trying to find "the right" white tee, I came across these shorts and changed my game plan.
I bought these navy/white polka dot shorts back in the Fall, and although I'm
a little very particular when it comes to shorts b/c of my "drumsticks" (larger thighs, tiny ankles), with a clearance markdown to four bucks, I couldn't pass these up. SN: This happens a lot.
After deciding on the shorts, I surprised myself by reaching for this sparkly top... yet, again. After owning it for nearly a year and wearing it only once in the first six months of owning it, this is the third time in one month that I've worn it. (And, yes, it has been washed!) SN: Lately, this seems to be happening quite often.
Finally, after going through at least a dozen pair of shoes, I settled on these Zara sandals. Actually, I let my husband choose from several options, and I shocked the hell out of him and myself by wearing the pair that he picked. SN: This has been happening way too much! What's really going on?!!
On another note, earlier in the week, I was watching tv and pondering over a good novel or two to read for the summer. Almost simultaneously, there was a news special about the hype surrounding a trilogy of novels that, I guess, were recently published. I decided to step out of my "comfort zone" of what I normally read (teenage nonfiction...I teach sixth graders, remember...) and try something new. Totally new. So, I bought the first of the novels today: Fifty Shades of Grey.
Have you heard of it?
Not sure what I'm getting in to, but wish me luck...
