Getting dressed in January is not fun. The thrill of getting out sweaters and boots evaporated weeks ago and Spring dresses feel a million years away. Soooooo….. tights with moons and stars! It’s the little things right? And look how cute this bow is. I can’t see it but I know it’s back there somewhere….
When my bossfriend asked me what on earth I was wearing, the answer came immediately: disco rodeo. It’s denim and sparkles and prairie boots and the perfect antidote for blustery day blues.
So there was this Marni blouse that had cats on it that I was dying for. But even I couldn’t justify spending $1000 on a blouse. With cats. Imagine my glee when I found this impostor cat blouse at H&M during black Friday/weekend for $7. Scorrrre. To help balance out the mass-produced poly blend sadness…
It took until December, but we finally got some snow here in Denver. I was getting anxious not because I worry about devastating wildfires and drought– no– I really wanted to break in the sweet boots and break out the sweater dress (i.e work-appropriate Snuggie).
Between the constant incoming boxes from various online merchants and the outgoing things I sold on Poshmark and Ebay (which are unsurprisingly things from said online purchases that don’t fit or are weird), I have accumulated a lot of shipping materials. Like, to the point that my coworkers come to my office when they need…
Everyone, even mega-celebrities like myself (chortle) need a place where you can get lemon extract, hair dye, and $200 of WTF random objects. Seriously, what did I just buy? Style tip: I refuse to let a closet full of open-toe shoes lie dormant for 5 months. Wear some opaque tights with those bad boys. …
I was trying to go for a 1970’s Town and Country vibe. The photobombing 7 yr old adds a certain”realness.” I also realized after I got to work that you can totally see my boobs. Generally I am pro-boob. In court, not as much. BThe skirt is METALLIC.
What does one wear while waiting for the end of the world? Ideally I’d wear a ball gown and drink but I had to go Adult so we settled on a Tracy Reese dress w pockets and a silk pinstriped blouse. Probably still going to drink.
Obviously this shirt is not going to court with me, but it sums shit up pretty well. Props to my girl Paige Parker for this Etsy treasure. I will now index some police reports. Fuck off indeed.
Okay so it’s more like a fat month. Or fat several months. But this tunic covers an unappealing situation and it has elephants on it. Note to self: the beer and cheese diet hadn’t caught on for a reason sister.
Yes it’s bright and blue here in Boulder but I have to do some Adult Lawyer Shit and am suited accordingly. I’ve made poor life choices.
Summer is wrapping up with beer & pizza festival. Most Boulderites are wearing activewear. I am, naturally, not.
