Happy 2019 dear readers!
I’m back home after some holiday traveling. When I got home, a box with this knit sleeveless top was waiting for me at the door. It was a bit of a risk because I bought it on sale and it wasn’t returnable.
At first, I didn’t know what to make of the neck part of the top. It wasn’t long enough to fold over and out like a traditional turtleneck, but felt restrictive if standing up against my chin. After moving around in it a bit though, the fabric kind of naturally folded elegantly inward by itself. It was a subtle difference that turned this outfit from nun-wear to California-casual. Also loving the hair tucked into shirt look, especially because my hair is particularly huge these days.
These shoes are really starting to fall apart. The leather is peeling badly. I received two pairs of shoes that I bought over vacation (I did a lot of shopping this past week, ah!). Sadly none of them worked out, one was too wide, and the other too tight. One, I will have to re-sell, the other I can return for store credit. Note to self: never buy shoes that aren’t returnable, no matter how good the deal. Lesson learned.
In other news, we are adding some furniture to our bedroom, so things are a bit in flux in my apartment right now. My mirror is temporarily in the living room, but soon it will be replaced by a smaller mirror in the bedroom. I’m working on putting artwork on the walls and adding a few other things.
I don’t have any formal new years resolutions this year. I just want to work on furnishing the apartment and possibly finish up some dormant painting projects that have been lurking around in the back of my mind. This year, I want to have fun and be sort of loose with my goals, steering away from specific quotas and schedules.
