I was woken up today by my daughter crawling into bed with me and poking me in the face.
I guess she missed me.
We ended up “putting on our faces” side by side. I wasn’t really planning on makeup since it’s the weekend but it was actually pretty fun with a captive audience.
I’d emptied out my makeup drawers and gifted her with all the e.l.f./l.a. colors products I’d bought when I first started getting into cosmetics so she had plenty of product to choose from.
We continued the camaraderie with a quick egg breakfast then I nonchalantly asked if she could snap a couple of shots for me.
Now, remember, this is fickle Aly, my original photographer, who makes me look good in every shot but who has the attention span of a flea when it comes to stuff like this. I really have to catch her in a receptive mood if I want decent pics.
What do you think? Was she receptive today?
This is another thrift store dress that I’ve not worn, having purchased it right before my Yale adventure. It is highly inappropriate for work – yes, I’m not wearing a bra! – but it’s a gorgeous piece nonetheless. And I really need to get over this hang up I have about only buying things I can wear to work. After all, I’m only on duty 185 days of the year.
Whereas yesterday’s dress had three minuses, this one hits it out of the park with three pluses: it’s a maxi, it’s a halter neck, and it’s got a lovely floral print in all my fave colors. Oh, and bonus? It was only $5.
I threw on a pair of bejeweled flip flops that I’d forgotten I owned but which emerged from yesterday’s attempt to straighten out my closet. I wish I’d remembered them before Yale because they’re super comfy and blingy at the same time, and they would have helped elevate my mood on days when I was punchy.
If I was feeling spunky, I would’ve thrown on a statement necklace to fill that wide expanse of decolletage, but after seven weeks wearing a lanyard, I’m a bit averse to anything more than my signature circle necklace around my neck right now. Talk to me in a month…
