Since I have no meetings, I went for a relatively comfortable and easy-going outfit. Not that it looks bad, of course.
- Black trousers (Coldwater Creek)
- Black tee (Cynthia Rowley, purchased at Marshall’s)
- Olive cardigan (Lord and Taylor, purchased off eBay)
- Olive and Fuchsia scarf (Marshall’s)
- Olive bracelet (Julep)
- Olive and brown bag (Dooney and Bourke, purchased off eBay)
I still love this scarf; it is soft and silky, not heavy, and adds some brightness to the outfit. I didn’t tie it in any special way primarily because I liked the vertical line it was creating.
Speaking of ebay, I listed some of my purses last night. My deal with my husband is that when the cupboard gets crowded it’s time to list some before any more arrive. And since I have 3 in my current Little Black Bag, I figured that meant I needed to clear some space. Each one listed is either too small or not a good shape for me/the stuff I carry. If you are interested, take a look. They all have comparatively low starting prices and competitive Buy It Now prices.
I am planning to get my haircut soon – this week (depending on whether the salon gets back to me on my appointment request for today). I pinned a bunch of styles, but of course they never look like the pictures once they are on your own head. The common elements are:
- Absolutely no shorter than a bit past my shoulders – the hair MUST be at least that long
- Layered; more so than now
- Long, side swept bangs (EEP)
If you are looking to avoid work, feel free to flip through the pins and leave your advice/comments below!
Truth Tuesday: Related to that former comment about a short neck and double chin, every single full length picture of myself that I post on here has a bit of retouching done to minimize the double chin. I HATE my double chin. It is the feature I despise the most about myself and the one about which I am most self-conscious.
I have lived with being heavy all my life and never been thin, so I’m mostly comfortable with that, but when I am flipping through the pictures I have taken I am always explicitly looking for the ones in which I can retouch my double chin into submission. The close ups aren’t a problem, since the camera angle is different and I can see the image before it goes off. I just wish I could do something similar with the full length pictures.
