So I've been trying to make an effort to make personal matters private, but it seems that they usually end up cropping up on this blog: case in point, my sister having a baby filled me with so much excitement, I spent a lot of time talking about not talking about it.
Matters such as my grandmother's recent illness, and subsequent passing, I decided not only refrain from mentioning it, but I should also refrain from blogging for a while. I've been spending a lot of time at my parents' house, mostly baking and keeping busy. It's been fascinating coming up with outfits each day that are different, but I haven't had the energy or motivation to blog. Most of them aren't interesting on their own merit, just within the context of my limited clothing here. The ones that are interesting, I'll be most likely to wear again.
But I've found myself in a conundrum, one that I don't want to bother my mother with, though she would usually be the first person I'd ask. The day of the shoe purchase, I was out buying an "in case of emergency" funeral outfit, not having expected to need one. While I was less then pleased with it, and it seemed a little scattered in my head, it definitely feels as though it's come together. However, I have two issues with the outfit:
- Purple/Red shoes at a funeral? Really?
- Isn't it a touch casual? Especially the skirt? (last worn here)
PS - I'm fairly excited about the idea of tomorrow's outfit, so I'll have to see if I find the time / energy / right after I've applied makeup but before I've cried it off opportunity to take pictures, but I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't hear from me until the new year.
