Thankful for the End of a Short Week

"Purple Leopard Overlord"--Friday, 12/6/17

This inspiration photo from October 2012 (!) has a lot going on, but I used it as a starting point for wearing a pair of long bootcut jeans that I wear with my black wedges.  Purple + grey leopard print were bonuses.


I made my outfit a little bit warmer by wearing a jacket and a quite snuggly scarf over a lightweight silk top.

Purple silk shell (JNY), $5.00/wear
Grey leopard blazer (thrifted, Macy's), $0.83/wear
Bootcut jeans (thrifted, Target), $1.67/wear
Grey scarf (Target), $2.00/wear
Black wedges (thrifted), $0.28/wear

Outfit total: $9.78/wear

As you may know, I prefer wearing a scarf to a turtleneck because I can get the neck-warming effect while not committing to keeping it on all day long.  Another warm and cozy option is to settle yourself down into your own furry dewlap, should you find yourself to be a female bunny like this lovely Rex rabbit.

In other news...This comic shows my mom's Christmas nightmare.

When I left work today, I was about 2/3 of the way through an interesting project--one that hits that sweet spot of a bit novel and a bit challenging but building on things you already know how to do.  It's kind of nice to think that when I have to return to work on Monday for 5 days in a row that I have a desirable project underway.

Truly my Christmas nightmare. So glad it's 8 different reindeer now.

LOL, I think we all are.

I like the California Raisins as a reindeer team substitute, as you know :)

I couldn't guess what the Xmas nightmare would be... then I clicked the link. Oh yes. Lol.
