You guys, I sincerely apologize for my absence this week. I’d love to tell you that I was busy doing something super cool (SXSW, anyone?), but the truth is, sadly, far more mundane:
I feel like poop.
Seriously, I feel like I’ve been run over. Multiple times. By a truck hauling Ol’ Roy dog food.
(What? Can YOU think of anything more disgusting than Ol’ Roy dog food? Please, by all means, go ahead and try. Be my guest. I will wait.)
(I rest my case.)
On the bright side, intense nausea and fatigue have not affected my ability to do good hair mix and match 30 articles of clothing. In fact, getting dressed up (to a greater or lesser extent) each day has not only improved my mood, I think it’s had at least a tiny positive effect on my health as well.
So let’s play catch up, shall we?
Day 12 (Saturday): None. I spent all day working on The Neverending Remodel, so my “outfit” consisted of workout clothes.
Day 13 (Sunday) and Day 14 (Monday): I started feeling crappy right after church on Sunday, so I came home, got back into my pajamas and stayed that way until Monday morning. After some consideration, I decided not to “waste” Sunday’s outfit (I only wore it for an hour and a half, after all), so I wore it again on Monday.
No, that top is not terribly figure-flattering without a belt, but see above re. I Felt Like I Was Going to Die, etc. I was pretty proud of myself for combing my hair.
Oh, no, wait. I did not comb my hair Monday. OBVIOUSLY.
Michael by Michael Kors sheer scoopneck blouse (via Goodwill) + American Eagle cords (Goodwill) + Fossil orange leather “Maddox” flats (Dillard’s) + Tiger eye cocktail ring (Dillard’s) + Kate Spade “Liesel” eyeglasses (Ashley Ridge Optical Dispensary)
Day 15 (Tuesday): I rallied! I made it out of bed and all the way to Jessica the Web Mistress‘s work, where I proceeded to make out with the Beatles poster in her office.
I am a delight to everyone I know.
Orange cardigan (Target) + Grey sequined tank top (Target) + Isaac Mizrahi for Target navy full skirt (via Goodwill) + Peanut leather knee-high boots (Old Navy) + Tiger eye cocktail ring (Dillard’s) + Kenneth Cole gold hoop earrings (Dillard’s)
Day 16 (Wednesday): Still rallying! Enough to go on a carb binge with Erik at Macaroni Grill, apparently. But still!
When I got home, The Guy was kind enough to take the day’s outfit photos for me.
What’s more cliche than posing in front of the fireplace?
That’s right: NOTHING.
Chihuahua say, “CHIHUAHUA GET IN PICTURE! IS BEAUTIFUL CHIHUAHUA. OUTFIT BETTER THAN MEAN LADY’S, IS SMALLER SIZE, TOO.”
I don’t know that I’ve had a cat-free photo taken of me in my entire adult life, y’all.
Chihuahua say, “OH WHAT IS THIS BULLS–T. YOU KIDDING CHIHUAHUA, YES?”
“IS GOING TO BARF. ALSO EAT ALL CAT FOOD TONIGHT SO THAT CAT IS STARVE TO DEATH.”
I swear, Lola Mowis likes it when we do this. We call it “going for a spin.” But don’t ask how we discovered that she likes it.
Please do not call the ASPCA on me.
Red cardigan (Target) + Grey and white striped ruffle camisole (Target) + Dark wash skinny jeans (Gap) + T-strap sandals (Target) + Fossil white enamel honey bee bangle bracelet (Dillard’s) + Gold and topaz bangle bracelet (American Eagle) + Gold dome ring (Dillard’s) + Kenneth Cole gold hoop earrings (Dillard’s) + Ballet pink flower lapel pin (actually a hair clip)
Day 17 (Thursday): No, I did not remember to wear green. I did, however, remember to take two naps.
Yes, I did get pinched. Repeatedly, by The Guy.
(He did not remember to wear green either.)
Navy ruffle top (Target) + Destructed skinny jeans (Gap) + Open-toed leopard wedge heels + Turquoise and brown beaded necklace (gift from Jessica the Web Mistress) + Turquoise ring (Avidchick Jewelry)
I’ll be back next week, and I promise to be a lot more entertaining. Which is, let’s face it, a lot easier to do when you are able to spend most of your day upright.
