You know, because that’s just what you do in a dress. Right? Anyone? Hmm. Must just be me, then.
I felt like a gypsy in this dress, until I started climbing the tree. Then, I decided that it was “pretend to be a faerie” time. And also “pretend to be graceful and fail” time. Oh, and also “climb a tree in a dress that has an awkwardly short lining while pretending it’s not awkward,” and “be glad nobody’s home to see you climbing a tree in a dress and almost exposing your bum,” and “accumulate two stubbed toes and one very scraped-up wrist” time.
But now that I’ve taken pictures in this tree, I don’t want to take pictures anywhere else. I love this tree. I am now expert at launching myself into this tree before the ten-second timer goes off on my camera. And I also know that the ground is not as far away as it looks. But that it’s probably not a good idea to jump out of the tree in a dress, because there are little stubby branches that like to catch the hem of said dress.
Like I said: it’s a good thing nobody was home.
At least the pictures turned out pretty, right?
I think that getting up at 2:55am to work boosts my creativity. (Or is that my insanity?)
I am wearing this dress for two reasons: one, I was browsing blogs and came across Clothed Much’s rule-breaking Monday post, which reminded me that as a girl with fuller hips I should really be wearing a dress that accents my waist, not a trapeze dress…and two, I’m lazy and tired and it’s going to be hot and I wanted to wear something that required very little styling, was light, and was comfortable enough to nap in, should the need overtake me.
It’s perfect, right?
Except I’d probably end up doing this about fifty times a day:
(That’s me falling. And barely escaping death. (<– that’s me being overdramatic like a girl.)) I probably wouldn’t make the best faerie.
So I’ve been using L’Oreal’s Go 360 Clean for about two weeks now– here’s a reminder of how bad my skin was two weeks ago— and this morning I woke up and decided I wasn’t going to wear foundation.
Yeah, that’s right. I have no foundation on. And I don’t feel like I need foundation. That hasn’t happened in a very long time. Of course, my skin isn’t completely blemish-free yet, but this is the closest it’s been in years. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go eat a Lindor Truffle.
Have a beautiful Monday!
