Ugh, y'all! This is the first time I've worn "real" clothes in SIX WEEKS! Aside from a short stint in a hot dog dress for Lauren's slumber party, I've lived in sweats and yoga pants as we've been working non stop on the new house. And remember when I scratched my cornea a week before Christmas? Yeah, well that turned into a corneal ulcer and I think I'm dying. I haven't worn contacts or mascara in six weeks either. My eye is super sensitive to bright light (hence my weird/squinty faces in this, sorry!), I have to wear sunglasses 90% of the day/night, and I have to sleep with a cold compress on my eye in order to offset the pain. Heaven help me feel better soon. Geebus! I can't drive, I can hardly look at my computer, and I can't watch tv at night haha I'm trying to make light of the situation but I'm realllllly hoping for a healing miracle soon. Phew! Is that enough whining for one blog post? No? haha
So this post... um. Remember back like last year (okay, just last month) when I was doing my LuLu*s dress challenge? Yeahhhhh. So after my eye incident I couldn't do much of anything so I'm finally picking it back up. Just this one and one final post to do! This one was supposed to be my "classy lady" look, but I think my disheveled hair might have thrown it off a bit. It's basically just black on black on black on black haha! But I felt so nice being dressed up for a change. I'd totally wear it out for drinks or a date night. Velvet shoes, a structured blazer and a fun textured dress. I added some bright lipstick just to play it up a smidge. It's the Daphne color from Radiant. Super creamy and such a punch of color. I didn't think I liked it when I first opened the tube, but I love the color once it's applied. (btw, Radiant gives 20% of their profits to help fight human trafficking!)
Speaking of not getting dressed for over a month... Have you ever gone through a phase where maybe you were sick for an extended time or maybe you were pregnant/just had a baby and all you could wear were sweats/yoga pants/pjs? Then how strange life feels once you put on real clothes? Seriously, after six weeks, I almost couldn't care less about wearing actual clothes or doing anything with my hear aside from tossing it up in a very shameful topknot. Of course I felt immensely better once I did get dressed, but let's be frank -- these clothes will come off as soon as we run our necessary errands and I'll be back in those yoga pants, breaking a sweat over our renovations. At least they're coming along!
I really can't wait for everything to be done in our house so we can be 100% moved in and settled, and then back at our normal daily routine. Maybe I'll even be able to keep up with my email, too! haha Happy Tuesday, folks!
