On Wed night, L and I went to see "Toy Story 3". I'm not ashamed to admit that I wept like a baby during the last 15 minutes. Knowing this, I took all my makeup off before we walked to town:
Also, it's still chilly out in the evenings, so I layered up.
Cardigan (Express, thrifted), t-shirt (don't recall - it's one of the crappy ones I wear around the house), skirt (Club Monaco, consignment), shoes (Stonefly, thrifted), belt (Plum), scarf (belt from a skirt).
For Canada Day, L and I went to his boss' barbecue. Of course, I had to look patriotic: As I've been to these BBQs in past years, I ate before I went (ha!). No, seriously, it's a good plan for me, since then it's easier to avoid things like cake and hot dogs and chocolate chip cookies. I ate a plain (overcooked) hamburger patty, a ton of tomato slices, a smidge of coleslaw, and three Coors Lights (hey, it's a necessary social lubricant).
I got a lot of compliments on the dress:I was hoping the sun would come out so that I could take the shrug off but no such luck.
Dress (Vero Moda), shrug (Debut), belt (Plum), shoes (Tommy Hilfiger, consignment), purse (Ollie & Nic).
Friday, I had to work (gotta save up my vacation days), but it was totally dead. All my US colleagues were out of the office, as were my US clients. Half my department was empty. I planned to go shopping after work, so I wore my "shopping uniform": easy to slip on/off dress, slip-on shoes, non-bulky jacket (yeah, still not sunny), and minimal jewelry.
Dress (Jacob, gift from Elaine), jacket (Ann Taylor Loft), shoes (Kenneth Cole Reaction, gift from Cat), cuff (old).
Ruth and I headed off to the mall for a long lunch - I got a pair of shoes. I had poor luck shopping after work, though. A woman nabbed a leopard sheath dress with a bigass zipper right out from under my nose (it did look fabulous on her, I had to grudgingly concede), but I found a skirt and a couple pieces of jewelry at Plum. I headed off to Dots with my "extra 50% off" coupon, but I didn't find anything I liked. I ended up with a new stock Noa Noa skirt.
I'm loving all the fall stuff coming in - ha! Is that wrong? We haven't even gotten summer yet, and I'm looking at autumn!
