I'm sorry about how I look half dead in these pictures. I feel half dead! Now that I can have a few days back in London to recover from a month of almost no rest whatsoever, the air's gone out of the balloon a bit! And I suddenly find myself agreeing with those bloggers who want to wear clothes that look cute but are as comfy as pyjamas. I mean, I ended up digging this sweaterdress out of storage and changing out of my jeans because they were just too much work to walk around in. I was also too tired to go out into the concrete jungle to snap photos. It was the balcony, or nothing.
A total stranger stopped me on the street to compliment me on the dress, so I must be doing something right, eh? The shirt is new, by the way - it's one of my little rewards for surviving the past month. I'd been wanting that shirt forever, and I'm really happy with it, and how it goes with this dress. I can't really spend that much on clothes right now, but that only makes it extra special. My other reward is a pair of bunny salt and pepper shakers. I was all, "Honey, we have more rabbits in the family," and Victor just looked at them and went, "Huh." Then he declared he was naming them Salt and Pepper, after the 90's rap group. Which is surprisingly original, no?
Also, I have a public service announcement for you:
Don't buy Pilcro cords. Because they will not even last six months until they start to pill and loose all their soft cordiness, and turn into horrible balding nastypants. At least these were from the sale rack, I would have been furious if I'd paid full price! I found a cheap but sturdy replacement pair in Norway, so these are going on their merry way. It's a shame, because Pilcro makes great shoes and nice tops, but this is my first and last time buying any trousers from them.
