Oh. My. Goodness. I have no idea why, but getting dressed on May 1st has to be one of the top post painful things I think I’ve ever done. Nothing fit right, I couldn’t decide on what I wanted to wear, and I kept gravitating towards things that were in my 30 for 30 pile. Probably because I’m just so damn used to them. It was tough, guys. Like, almost-late-for-work-so-I-biked-really-fast kind of tough. Plus I didn’t have my morning fashion consultant available to help me decide what to wear. He had to be at work really early this morning (like 6:00). UGH! Could I manage to complain anymore? Okay, I’ll stop.
And…..Done complaining! I actually really like the outfit I ended up with, and I have no clue how I got there. I have a really hard time styling these red tights for non-winter/autumn looks. Really, I have a hard time styling anything to be non-winter/autumn. Mostly just I have a hard time styling for spring. Anyone else there with me on this? But I like how it ended up! And I had a total blast putting together my crazy pin collection. It’s not an arm party…. it’s more like a shoulder* party…
*Okay, guys, so confession–as I was writing the title of this post, I was thinking about how it’s not an arm party, it’s more like a shoulder party. But then I was thinking, well, it’s not really my shoulder, it’s like my shoulder cavity–like my upper chest. Then I was all, “boob party”? No. Wrong. Do not make “Boob Party” your post title. So I settled on something else. But really, what other kind of party would you call this? Ah well.
Also, I like proof that Stripes and I are actual friends who spend actual time together besides blogging. I think it’s a good reminder 😉 We had a lunch date with Monsieur and our other friend, P, because a bunch of local restaurants were doing a fundraiser for this great cause. Perfect way to indulge in a meal, if you ask me!
Oh PS, in case you forgot, I actually have this whole outfit sketched and mostly painted. I just didn’t have time to scan it. But I thought about it, and yes. Yes I am going to make a concerted effort to keeping that going. Just, not, you know, today. With this post. For now. Kay bye!
