As I type this post, I am wailing (on the inside) from my legs being all achy from walking all over downtown St. Louis. B and I thought we'd take one of our anniversary days off from work to explore the city a little bit, which meant lots and lots (as in 7 miles according to my fitbit) of walking. And it was humid and hot. I felt like a dumpling right out of the steamer. And of course, the very next day, my body gave me a big F**k You in the form of aches and pains. I am (not so) secretly relishing the feeling.
But it's back to work and work outfits for now. Don't worry! I'm still going to be posting all our other anniversary adventure pics soon-- the editing is just slowing me down.
It's a little bit chilly in the office, so even if it's 80 outside, I'm still wearing sweaters and socks. Plus, when there are thunderstorm warnings, I make sure I have boots on so my feetsies don't get wet, because if there's one thing I hate, it's wet feet in sandals. Ugh. Makes me cringe.
As for my makeup, I've really been trying to incorporate brighter colors for warmer temp outfits. It's been so long since my Hot Topic makeup days where I wore lots of bright aqua or acid green, and my style has changed so much, so it's really a challenge. Which, duh, I accepted. I tried wearing Jilted and Savage from UD's Electric Palette together for this look, but you really can't tell. It just looks like I have massive styes on both eyes. It's all good, though. All part of the learning process. I just have to try other color combinations.
Aaaand just for good measure, I present to you this scrumptious black currant scone complete with jam and clotted cream. Just because it's the weekend.
