On the mend…
Monday, June 08, 2009
Hello! I'm back! I will save you the whole long story on why it's been so long (in short: I was sick, then developed a staph infection, then got a slew of meds, all not fun!). I am, unfortunately because of the aforementioned ailments, also not away on vacation this week, as I was supposed to be, so I am back to my regular sporadic blogging schedule.
Being in bed for a good part of two weeks did give me a chance to catch up a little bit on the internets. I tried hard to refrain from shopping too much, but I did allow myself to pick up a few things. I was sick after all! It was easy to justify.
My small shopping list included the following:
1)American Apparel's super-sheer circle scarf ($39), in blue. I'm seeing this as summer's answer to the drapey cowl scarf I wore all winter, and a great way to break up the darkness of black daytime dresses and give them a bit of fun, summery color.
2)Calypso's braided-neck Kimberly tank dress ($130). Style Redux turned me on to it! Such a bright, breezy summer staple.
3)Alternative Apparel's super-comfy lightweight tank tops in shades of gray ($14), to wear under light blazers with draped shorts. Just so I'm not wearing a white American Apparel deep V-neck every day. It's getting a little ridiculous how much I wear those.
4)DV by Dolce Vita's Owen sandals. 'Cause a gal just can't wear flip flops all the time.
I'm all antibiotic'd up now, and waaay better, so the try-not-to-shop clause has gone back into effect. It was fun while it lasted. I might have to make a teensy exception for the gorgeous photo by Blissfulimages (above). It makes me feel better just to look at it.
