Hi there buddies! I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I drank a double shot latte at 4:30 this afternoon. The bad news is that I drank a double shot latte at 4:30. It was not my most ibrilliant move as of late. But in my defense, I haven’t had a latte in like a week and a half and I was craving it. And then the barista offered me an extra espresso shot for free. You can’t turn down free coffee. You just can’t. So I’m kinda still wired at this ridiculous hour, but also feeling punchy enough to post something.
In case you were wondering, I will not be giving up coffee for Lent this year. If you were reading this time last year, you’ll recall that although I am not even Catholic, I often use the Lenten season as an opportunity to give something up. Last year it was my beloved coffee and I lived to tell the tale. But having made that sacrifice once, I don’t think a round two will be necessary.This year I am still weighing my options. Suggestions welcome. How about you guys? Have you ever given anything up for a period of time? What was it and how did it go?
I’ll let you think about it during the outfit intermission.
Confession: I wore this outfit last week and I’m just now getting around to posting it. These days I still dress up quite frequently. It’s just that since the project ended, I haven’t yet been in the mood to snap a bunch of self-portraits and write posts. That’s always been the time consuming part.
There’s also this little issue called the weather. I am at my burnout point for winter clothes. Although I love getting my layer on, I have been really missing skirts and dresses. Which is why I broke down and threw on this skirt the other day. A good skirt will always cheer me up. When trying to roust yourself from a skirtless funk, I say it’s best to go Super Skirt! And as skirts go, I’m pretty keen on this one. It’s extra flared-out and bouncy. In fact, it’s bounciness doesn’t capture well in photos. You’ll just have to take my word for it.
Still struggling to break out of my colorless rut. I can’t wait for spring colors, and I’ve got a lot of fun ideas floating around for the coming season. Now just cross your fingers that I’ll remember to post them!
