Yesterday I did almost nothing, or, it felt like I did almost nothing. I didn't leave the house much, although I got a fair amount of chores done and even snuck in a bit of writing over a bagel into the day, and when I did I knew I didn't want to wear something fussy. All the same, my summer uniform of patterned shorts and some version of an eyelet or chambray blouse was just not feeling right.
To top it all off I'm feeling weird about my body again. I don't really touch on that much on here, because in general I'm pretty pleased with it, but recently I've gone on a really unhealthy eating spree (if you follow me on twitter you understand my deep love for pretzel crisps) and I'm really feeling it. I'm in that place where my jeans feel snug and I'm grump about it, even if it 's for no reason. It's hard not to feel like that sometimes.
Nevertheless, I threw on something pretty simple but a little bit special. When Modcloth offered to send me a few items, I knew this top had to be in one of my picks, and I've already worn it a few times.This week I'm a little bit sick of accessories, normally I'd have tossed a belt on with the little peplum waist of this top, but everything I tried just felt too too, if that makes any sense. The weather was so uncooperative, rainy and spitting one minute and sunny and perfect the next! I had to play the do I want to risk getting the camera wet game, and ended up only getting a handful of shots before a downpour started and I skittered back to my car just in time to avoid a parking ticket.
The upside of yesterday, besides the really delicious bagel, is that my hair is growing long enough for an almost-proper crown braid. I need a trim something awful, I keep pinching my crunchy ends and hiding them inside curls, but I'm so excited that I'm starting to have honest-to-goodness long hair again that the thought of losing even a quarter of an inch is tragic!
