How's that for an alliterative but completely meaningless title? ;-) What I should really have called this post is "I've Got Nuthin'."
Remember how I said my office is cold? Well yesterday I wore my new brown pencil skirt with the print … oh wait, I have the photo from the other day. This outfit:
Plus I added pantyhose and wore closed-toe pumps.
And I was HOT, and not in a good way (or in a personal summer way either). I ended up taking off the sweater by afternoon. What was up with THAT?
Today I wore the skirt re-make and the print shell I had with it in the last set of pics, plus the short-sleeved brown cascade cardigan and the shoes in the pic above, no PH. My legs were a little chilly by the end of the day but overall I was comfortable. Especially during potty breaks. Is that TMI? ;-) I think someone hit the thermostat yesterday and today it was back to normal again. It was the same people who decided to all get on the roads at the same exact time this morning, adding another 15 minutes to my drive. Can we please have a sign-up sheet for commute times? ;-)
I'm SO glad I kept those shoes, though. They are so comfy that I would still be wearing them now if I didn't have to take them off to get my capris on. I've already decided I'm wearing them tomorrow and will now have to build an outfit around them. The skirt re-make didn't even feel tight today. When I was trying it on after finishing it the other night, it was after a filling dinner so I was feeling a little puffy. I wasn't puffy today and it was comfortable. This is good, and bad. Good for obvious reasons. Bad, because it means I may not have as much time with it as I hoped. Catch-22.
Last night I sat through 2 hours of video tutorials online because the graphics software I'm using is actually pretty new to me so I want a better idea of what I'm doing. I mean, I know what to do, I just fumble trying to find it in the software. (And while we're on the subject, who the heck at Microsoft decided to completely change the location of EVERYTHING in the latest iteration of Office? OMG I hate it. H.A.T.E.) Two hours of basic and boring tutes was all I could take and I was passed out on top of my covers in front of the tube by 10:30 PM.
Tonight I'm going to try to work up the motivation to fix the RTW dress that needs the neckline crossover raised, instead of watching more tutes. Tsk, tsk. I also want to make the sleeves short instead of 3/4 so I can wear my short-sleeved putty knit jacket over it.
I'm looking forward to my first paycheck this week, more shopping (yes!) and more sewing on the weekend. Hi, my name is Debbie and I've become a clothes horse.
