What to wear to Sunday brunch (7/17): colorblocking watermelon hues. Apparently four of us got the memo because we were all wearing bright tropical pink and greens. A bunch of us old CSA folk went to First Watch for some brunching goodness and I dug into a plate of Floridian toast topped with fresh fruit. Of course I was drooling at everyone's savory plates by the end and caving into the tempting pitchers of coffee.

As a response to a lot of sweet commenters, colorblocking is easy! Just get bright basic tees and some fun summery skirts/pants/shorts, and there you go. I like to redefine the waistline with a belt usually (a bright one at that), and if you're really wanting to blind people with your brightness, pop on some fun bright shoes. I think everyone's been wearing bright colours forever, just this summer they've decided to slap a label to it. 

They ran out of smaller sizes for this bright green colorblock tank at H&M, but I went with a Euro 6 anyway. Green is my favourite colour (I even bought a lime green desk for my room) and it's pretty flattering against my skin tone. There was a bright pink colorblock dress too, but it looked shapeless and paper-baggy. Oh sweet summer, how you're zipping past. Air conditioning humming like the bumblebees guarding the sidewalk. 

Today, Wednesday. One of those days when you slap the alarm and you just know it's going to be a bad day. I just kept proving it to myself by making stupid mistakes at work. GAHHHH. I can feel the cortisol releasing straight into my face. I just saw my friend Alice today and she asked how I keep up with blogging in this hot mess of busy-ness. Blogging is my chamomile tea, my back massage, my "dear diary" ready to listen to me gripe about insignificant troubles. The more on my plate, the more posts and updates it seems keke T__T Back to work for me now xD

The internet just crawled at the place of a few kb/sec for the past hour. Add onto that my perpetually washed out photos (view my blog in Chrome vs Safari - you'll see the difference) and we can call it a victorious day for technology problems.
