Oh, hi! It's been a while.
During my mini hiatus from blogging I've rekindled my love of cooking, (especially homemade lunches and dinners) whiled away lots of hours in the pottery studio, and spent lots of much-needed time with B. I needed some down time to think about my priorities and goals, plus I was getting cranky from staring at a computer screen all day at work and then having to do the same at home. I don't know how much time I'll be able to spend writing new posts and whatnot, but I've learned that putting too much pressure on keeping a "regular" blogging schedule can be unhealthy, at least for me. So for now, I'll blog when I can and when I want.
I've been wanting to share this outfit for a while now, especially since when I wore it to work, a colleague exclaimed that I looked very unlike my "cool" self. What? My coworker wasn't being mean or insensitive. I think he was at a loss of words when it comes to distinguishing styles. No biggie. Especially since I felt darling in this dress that B got me for Christmas last year. I don't usually like orange, but after he got me this and I saw how pretty the color was against my hair, I bought 3 more orange things. No joke. And will you look at that collar? Gush.
Now let's talk Gash, as in hosiery slashing. This is the last outfit these polka dot tights graced. When I got home, I found a large tights gash on the right thigh. It must have snagged somewhere, and I just never noticed! But these babies lasted at least 2 years, so they've been well-loved. It's a good thing the temps are a-rising so I can postpone tights shopping for a little longer!
