17, 18, 19 March 2014: Blah Blah Blah

I’ve been super sleepy this week. I had sort of gotten in the habit of posting at lunch, but I realized the photos I took in the morning were not super flattering because I was about to fall over. Hooded eyes. Not great.

Also, my outfits haven’t quite looked how I wanted. But see above sleepiness – I am not with it enough to change on the fly these days. LOL

No, I take it back – I loved this outfit. Score! I picked this cardigan up at the clothes swap, convinced it was black. Nope. It’s navy. And I already have a navy cardigan I love. This one is a little baggier, but I don’t think that’s a reason to keep it. It can wait for the next swap, I guess.

I was aiming monochromatic, to celebrate the new cardigan from the swap. It…fell apart. Definitely around the feet. Perhaps higher.  My mother informed me this weekend that she doesn’t read this blog, despite knowing about it, because she so often doesn’t agree with my style choices. I think outfits like this are a big reason why. 😉

But!

It was warm enough that I could wear a non-winter coat! Even when walking! I vote in a retirement home, and the poll workers noted that I fit right in, ha.

Ha ha ha, another outfit my mother would hate. (Sorry, Mom.) This sort of got away from me, it got pretty busy. I was hiding my hair, which is why bun and scarf, and celebrating a touch of warmth, hence leggings. I did get a ton of compliments on the shoes, though.

The hair thing is still an ongoing issue – it was getting build up again, so my mom and I tried Dawn + Listerene. I felt ridiculous and laughed a lot, but  it WORKED. So now I’m doing a weird alternation of that, a heavier concentration of baking soda/water + vinegar and T-Sal. (T-gel has SLS! What the hell?) And it’s mostly working really well. I think it’s entirely possible that my nickel sensitivity (I’ve only been able to wear gold jewelry since I was about 8) has gotten worse now that I started eating oatmeal every day (oats are heavy in nickel) and this is an allergic reaction. But since I don’t want to give up oats, I will try this oddball combo and hope for the best!

I leave you with a stuffed animal who attended a St. Paddy’s Day sleepover at the library. They got into all sorts of mischief after hours and looked dapper doing it.
