Miss me? I had a late night last night, and knew I'd be free tonight, so it's a double-shot of Thursday's and Friday's outfits. It's a wardrobe bonanza!Val Sparkle*, who suggested something more contrast-y with this jacket (last seen here with reds and purples), and Tamera*, who thought it would look good over my senorita dress. You were both so right!
*linking 'cause I adore both of these ladies!
I haven't worn the Spanish lady dress since I wore it three times way back in the September 2012 capsule (recap here).
This is the second wear of the jacket and I have decided not to keep it.

So last night, we had a Games Night at work. People bring board games, like Ticket to Ride, or Carcassone, and we all play what interests us. We have beer and Subway sandwiches. Anyway, I had a couple of beers, and my last one was an IPA, with a high amount of hops (which seems to be trendy right now). I don't drink beer very often, mostly because of the high calories, but I usually like darker beers, like Guinness.
Anyway, I woke up at four in the morning, feeling uncomfortable and itchy, but put it down to hormones. I'm groggy in the morning, and didn't really get a look at myself until I got out of the shower - I was covered in hives! My eyes were puffed, my lips were swollen, and seriously, red spots everywhere.
After I checked with L (no spots on him), and being able to eliminate bedbugs (ugh, shudder) as the culprit, I guessed that it was that hoppy beer. I sometimes get stuffed up when I have a beer, and I could feel that, only a bit stronger. I took an antihistamine right away, as well as ibuprofen.
But I'm feeling better, so that's a relief. Still spotty, but much less. Scary! I didn't know I was allergic to anything. No more beer for me! That's it, I'm not going to take a chance on going into anaphylactic shock.
However, let's move on to more fun topics, like clothes! Are you agog that I'm wearing jeans?? I haven't worn jeans on the blog (I wear a pair of worn-out ones around the house sometimes) since I wore these same cropped jeans four times in the February 2012 capsule (recap here).
The tunic top is a thin poly covered in this tree and zigzag pattern. I wore this twice in the all-neutral June 2012 capsule (recap here), both times with this same brown t-shirt cardi, although it shared its affections with other tops that month, as I wore it 5 times.
I haven't been taking pictures of my outerwear too much, but I've been relying heavily on my leathers. They're perfect for cold spring mornings, and not too heavy for when the sun's out.
here) for $24.00 at the local thrift shop, and I had to wear them this week. They are a bit stiff (obviously barely worn), and one of the straps rubbed the top of one foot, as well as a bit of a rub on an ankle, but not too bad. I could feel them softening up as I wore them.

I hope you have a great weekend! Happy Memorial Day weekend to my US friends!
