This was my outfit for my first 9 to 5 Friday (6/3). I did unfortunately have a mishap with the alarm clock, but still put forth the effort to tame my Einsteinian mane and throw on something nice. Luckily I tried this on the night before or I would have been running there in exercise shorts and a college tee. Our lab meetings are now becoming full on professional presentations, and I'm up to bat this Friday (nerve-wracking!) I wish my battery didn't die after a few shots so I could show details and my lip colour. I was using a super bright orange Revlon one over Soft Nude and it screamed LOUDMOUTH. Of course I didn't wear that to work, same with the wedges - still transitioning. Meanwhile yesterday I tried out Dr. Scholl's heel liners and they seem to improve heel comfort at least a little. Now that I know size 5's are too big for me and no wonder there's always a gap in the back, heel liners seem like a BFF option if only they weren't at least $5 a pop. Have you petite feet ladies found any cheaper solutions to shoes that are half a size too large? I'm considering padding with paper but that'd probably get ugly real fast.
This chambray shirt is quite versatile, but the material isn't really chambray. I'm considering getting a better one without the funky poofy sleeves, which made me look kind of ridiculous in the lab, but the poofy A-line of the skirt helped balance it out into an exaggerated hourglass shape, creating the illusion of a smaller waist.
Still hitting Kayak's coffeeshop as much as possible for endless internet (btw you HAVE to try their Durango wrap - I'm in BBQ heaven). Tuesday couldn't arrive any sooner, could it? I'll get back to all comments and catch up on reading your blogs as soon as I can. Meanwhile, all free time is spent organizing my room and unpacking. I have no recollection of where I hid my shampoo ...
In the summer heat (it was 102 Saturday and I stayed out all afternoon for an awesome barbeque - so tanned!) and scorching blazing flames that curl towards earth at the speed of light, I still somehow manage to layer. The shadows come out to play so fiercely at 5 PM. It feels like I'm back in Oklahoma, or wandering across a Texan desert. Does Texas even have desert? A cowboy hat, companion horse, and some cacti would be a more fitting backdrop to explain how it feels when I'm stubbornly shooting these photos after work. Thank God for skirts. Can I get an amen?
