I haven’t done a personal update in some time. Mostly because I’m not very good at remembering to take photos while I’m out these days.
I wrote this yesterday but never had a chance to publish it. Not much has happened since though I’m coming down with a flu I think now…
Last week I bought this “Tux Skirt” from Madewell.
Seriously no more black skirts for me. I’m self-banned!
I liked it because it was more fitted and shorter than my Banana Republic pencil skirt or UNIQLO wool skirt (which I wear only for work.) Lately I felt I had too few fitted things and that maybe adding a nice fitted skirt would be good for balancing out oversized tops. This tux skirt personified my needs perfectly plus it’s longer in the back so I feel safe (ha!) and it’s finally a pencil skirt with belt loops! I made sure to buy it in my exact size rather than doing my occasional “sizing up” for super-comfort. I think the summer was so hot this year that I grew accustom to hating form fitting items…
This weekend was pretty great. I got a ton of stuff accomplished.
I stopped by Anthropologie to buy a few hooks for the house. Just simple decor. Plus I found some more mt washi tape while there! I went to Anthropologie on a hunch a few months ago and they didn’t have any, but now they had a bunch. So I picked up the red set because it felt Christmas’y.
Later on Saturday we grocery shopped, BBQ’d outside, did some home repairs, put up my new Anthropologie hooks, completed Christmas cards, and went out that night to see a band & have some drinks.
Sunday was a bit more laid back because the great weather went crappy. Mostly just did a run to Target where I picked up the Herbal Essence “Color Me Happy” I mentioned in the shampoo entry. It smells great. The formula doesn’t do much for my hair. Leaves it limp but it is soft and smells nice. Burt’s Bees Very Volumizing is still the best combination for adding volume & shine to my hair, but I like to try other stuff. I get bored with scents or think there’s some better, more hol’ier grail product out there :). I tend to buy shampoos on a whim.
OK I’m off to eat some Chicken Noodle soup… :dizzy:
