Hi, Hi! Guess who’s back? Back again..
I’ll make this kind of quick, because I’m watching “American Idol.” I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that, because I think I’ve mentioned before just how much I hate most reality TV. And I stand by that. But the buck stops at Idol audition night. Maybe it’s because I have a bit of a mean streak or just a penchant for Schadenfreude. These people are so deranged and I love it. Every year, I tune in without fail for the snark factor. Sometimes I think I’ll keep watching because I’ve invested in the process and then I never do. But audition night is where it’s at. I’m even kind of excited about the new judges this year. Jennifer Lopez? I have a sort of secret (or now not-so-secret) love for J-Lo. We’re both still Jenny from the block and all.
But I’m excited to be posting again. Putting together Monday’s post, I realized how much I’ve missed my little routine. I’ve been kind of lost without it. I’ve had all this extra time on my hands. I’ve read books! Slept in. It’s so weird! I’m not even sure I like it. So. Once I finally pried the same outfit off of myself I thought I’d put on another. And take some pictures and do the whole bit.
I might still be a little out of practice from my hiatus. I don’t love this whole outfit now that I’m looking at it. But I was excited to put together yet another new outfit with this strange tunic top thing. While on my recent vacation to whereabouts unknown, I might have happened across a Forever 21 or three. And would you believe it? This is the only thing I bought. I think F21 is one of those stores where you have to kiss a lot of frogs. I usually try on about 80 things and come home with a couple that actually worked. I really like this top but I was a little puzzled as to the styling of it.
In hindsight I think I would have gone even simpler. It’s got a nice shape and hangs nicely. But I was also hankering to wear this fun orangey scarf and thus the combo was born. The good news is that now if I don’t love something, I get to try again without worrying about repeat items. I promise I will bring this one back, soon. But not too soon. Don’t worry. I am liking this already!
