You know how a tiny pebble in your shoe can ruin a nice walk and leave you hobbling in pain? That is how I liken days where I don't like my outfit and today was one of those days. Now, to liken my day to pain is not appropriate because it really wasn't that bad. I just wasn't as 'on' as I would have liked. I ended up pulling my hair back about an hour into work (hate that) and later begged my bangs to stay strong against the heat of the area I was working in. I just wasn't feeling it today. Someone even commented that I "looked tired" and didn't have on one of my "cute outfits*" like usual. I went for comfort today and ended up more out of wack than if I had worn a wrap dress on a windy day.
Putting my jean jacket** on after calling it a day helped. And then heading to Tysons to spend some gift cards helped even more. I hit the jackpot tonight and left the malls quite the happy shopper. Funny how good clothes can improve my mood:)
Early tomorrow morning (4am) Ali and I head south to Bald Head Island, NC for our cousin's wedding. Part of my shopping trip tonight was to find an appropriate cover up for the dress I am wearing. And maybe only DCCeline will care about this part, but this is what I'm wearing: strapless, dark blue with white polka dots dress and a marigold cardigan over top. I might tie the bottom of the cardigan because it's long, but that's to be decided later. Pictures to be posted upon my return. Promise!
*Her words, not mine. My words would have been "hott outfits" or "totally bitchin' outfits!" :)
**Jean jackets=love. Except for the other day when I accidently grabbed it to wear and didn't realize I was wearing jeans until I had walked into work. As much as I love my jean jacket, it should never, ever, be paired with denim pants. The horror.
