I didn’t even mean to illustrate my own point today, I swear! But when I pulled on my red sheath dress and sunshine yellow cardigan with these shoes and this scarf, it just didn’t work. It wasn’t coolness, specifically, that I was going for and the problems with the original outfit iteration had to do with how the items fit and worked together … yet I DID end up reaching for my black shirt dress, knowing it would just work. And I do feel cooler than I would’ve pushing the color envelope today.
This month has been insanely busy and stressful, but things have finally calmed down. I am so tired I feel like I could sleep for a solid week and oh, how my cats would love to use me as a sofa for seven straight days. I once heard a comedian say that cats view humans as furniture with a circulatory system, and my cats definitely subscribe to that philosophy.
