People, today I took myself on a date. Because of my condo association's yearly owners' meeting (and election for the new trustees!) this evening, I had to tutor an hour earlier than usual. And I had an appointment in the city a few hours before that. So I decided to make a day of it: go shopping, take myself out to lunch, and generally enjoy time with myself and the Beatles (in my iPod, folks. Duh.).
Spring is slowly slouching into the region and I decided to speed it up by débuting my new white jeggings:
Despite my dead eyes, I was actually pretty into my outfit for the first part of the day. Look! White doesn't make me look like a whale! Look! I can wear chic black and white without looking like a waitress (when my ultra-hard-core choir performed a mass one Sunday, wearing our standard dress code of white - collared - top and long black skirt, and we hear an old man ask "What's up with all the waitresses?!")! Look, my blue boots are adorable on white! Yay! I'm actually super-looking forward to wearing these over the summer - with a long top and my turquoise sandals? CA-YUUUUTE!
However, it was in the high 30s when I woke, only a few hours before my first appointment, so I had to make the outfit a little more early-spring-appropriate:
So my first appointment was to trim my short hair, over which growth my stylist exclaimed in shock. Apparently my hair grows faster than normal mortals'. Yay. So now I'm all shorn and happy:
Forgive the exhaustion: this was taken after the 2.5 hour-long owners' meeting
After my haircut, I sauntered around Boston and did some shopping which I probably shouldn't have done. I bought two pairs of earrings and used up some coupons at the Gap ($105 down to $59!) to buy new shirts and socks. I'll be rolling these items out shortly: I was too lazy to take photos of my new products.
Anyway, the long, ten-hour day in white jeggings taught me some lessons. A) If you're a brunette, don't wear these "jeanz" during a haircut. You'll find bristles for hours afterwards. And B) Gap mirrors are hugely unflattering - or these jeggings aren't as cute as I thought.
