A Tale of Two Outfits

For me, getting dressed in the morning involves a lot of compromise. There's the outfit I wish I could wear, and then there are the realities of my life that make that impossible, impractical or just out of my comfort zone. Today was a perfect example.

Ugh, what an awful week ... I won't bore you with the details, but let's just say I am relishing an evening spend in comfy clothes, with my beer, knitting and Star Trek. Oops, did I just reveal what a total dork I am? That's OK, I'm cool with it.

Not Working

Have you ever had a garment that just is not working, but for some reason, you try to convince yourself it is? Maybe it was a gift and you feel bad discarding it; maybe you paid a lot of money for it; maybe you really like the color, the print or the style.

And everyday I ask myself: Do I try to hide these rather unattractive things, or do I just wear what I feel like wearing, and say "screw it?" And most of the time, I say "screw it."

Mini post

I was all psyched to start off June with more outfit posts, but then, some things involving cameras and toddlers blah blah blah. So I only have a couple photos to share with you today, and they're from yesterday.

Weekend Roundup

Sorry for what will be a kind of random post; I just have a variety of disparate things kicking around that I wanted to share. Calling it a "roundup" makes it seem so much more official than "Weekend Random Crap," though, don't you think?

Style Me May recap

I did a kind of half-assed job at the Style Me May challenges for a variety of reasons, including being on vacation for a week, and working like the devil (i.e. not much time for outfit pics) before and after my trip. So my recap is kind of brief. Here are a couple of my favorite outfits from the month:
