Yesterday was my first day back to work after lounging on my couch in my pajamas with my work laptop, and I dressed mostly for comfort. I tried a belt with this at first, but it didn’t feel comfortable, and I didn’t have one that was bright enough to break up the black of the sweater with the black of the skirt. Figured it was easier to keep it simple.
I love this sweater, but it was not made with boobs in mind. Notice how the stripes curve up? The bottom front of this sweater, when worn, is a few inches shorter than the bottom back. This is why I knit my sweaters with short rows in the bust area.
Simple accessories as well. However, you may notice my haircut! On Saturday, I kept my appointment, hoping that getting out of the house for a while would improve not only my health but my spirits. I was right on the latter; I came home and spent the rest of the afternoon watching How It’s Made on the Science Channel.
The hair at the back of my neck was driving my crazy, but I liked the way the front swooped across my eyes. I also had, for the first time ever in my life, my eyebrows waxed. So weird. That experience may warrant a separate post that may come after the Thanksgiving holidays.
With the dark bottom half, I needed a little something with color on my feet to add some smiles to my day. In the past six months, I don’t think I’ve ever left Target without at least one pair of $1.50 ankle socks. Thank goodness my office doesn’t have any policies about not wearing happy little argyle skulls to work.
