It's been a long day, starting at 5:30am - I had to be at work for 7:30am as my work was offering some sort of "lite" medical health checks for employees, and Corporate (in its wisdom) decided this should start at 8am. So be there early for the nurse, Ms. Sheila.

I had a bit of an adventure this morning - I thought I left my travel coffee mug at my old office (I have to pop in and pick up the mail for a while), so I dashed back there, only to have the front door knock me in the nose.
I had to pick a good outfit to wear - must make a good impression on a valued reader! I'd forgotten that I'd already worn this top and skirt together before, but the addition of the long grey-ish velvet vest made this outfit for me.
Outerwear - not my most inspired, but it was early, dammit!
- Gloves - consignment
- Necklace - thrifted
- Earrings - c. 1996
We asked one of the other coffee shop patrons to take our picture - here we are!
Ouch! Your poor nose! That's so great that you got to meet Erin. I hope I get to meet you one day, Sheila! ;) I love the gorgeous textures in your outfit, Sheila. Especially the velvet vest and boots! Fabulous! XXXReplyDelete
Wouldn't that be cool, Sasha! I hope it happens! Thank you so much, my dear.Delete
YIKES! Doors are dangerous. I remember opening the door at my hair salon and I'm pretty sure I broke my toe. I know for sure I hurt myself...bleeding and swelling. Hope you recovered quickly from your encounter.ReplyDelete
It came right of nowhere, Sue! Thank you!Delete
Oh no, I'm glad you recovered from the door incident and still managed to make your coffee date! :) I love those boots, they are so fun, and a nice addition to your outfit! :)ReplyDelete
Oh, I wouldn't have missed it! I love being able to meet up with readers! Thank you, Mica - I love these boots so much.Delete
Lovely ensemble today! I love the wedge on the boots.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Amie! Fluevog makes the coolest shoes.Delete
Ouch! Nose bash!! The fact that you could carry on your day is good, and go to a meetup, even better. Meetups are the best - heh.ReplyDelete
It didn't hurt that bad - just a lot of icky red stuff. I lurve meetups!!Delete
Ouch! Hurray for the lady from 7-eleven. I have to admit that my first thought would have been my clothes and shoes too ... Those boots are magnificent, and so is the velvet vest. How wonderful that you were able to meet up with Erin! She must have been so excited meeting you! xxxReplyDelete
I had lots of good karma with her - saw her every day for years. Ha, how little we care about ourselves. It was so cool to meet her - I felt like a star!Delete
Those blue velvet boots!!!! Shut the front door-----just not on your face!!!! And 7am is entirely war too early mamacita, way too early.ReplyDelete

I have met you and can attest to your awesomeness! Love the layers in this outfit! Very tired and I only seem capable of short sentences so I give you the short sentences above! xoReplyDelete
Yay, Shawna, so nice to see you! Aw, you're so sweet, thank you. NO worries at all, my dear - I'm also really feeling ragged these days. Hugs!Delete
Oh wow that velvet vest is a beauty ! and how exciting that you were able to meet with a reader.ReplyDelete
It's so soft to wear too - I stroke it and pet it. I know, it was so cool!Delete

A chipped tooth last week and now a bloody nose this week - what a pain! I have meet-up envy too, but hey that's not your fault. I need to start a little savings fun for a big trip across the pond before I'm too old to travel.ReplyDelete
Blue velvet boots - be still my beating heart!
You do! Maybe we should plan a midway trip, meet halfway?Delete
Aren't they amazing?
