Happy Monday, folks! In case you're wondering, it's still winter here in Sacramento. Why, then, did I wear a short sleeve shirt and open-toed shoes to work today? Beats me. I blame it on my second cold of the season (thanks, K) and overall Monday delirium. Funny thing was, with my space heater on by my toes and hot tea always at hand, I withstood the cold just fine. Just like people always say to "think cool" in the summer, maybe I should try thinking warm more often. Sure, it's probably all in my mind, but what isn't?
I grabbed this shirt from a swap last fall, and this is the first time I've worn it. I have no idea why I waited so long, because I love it! The color is great (I've been really into purple lately), the puff sleeves are cute and demure, and the slip-on style with vertical seams gives the illusion of a flat stomach. OK, so maybe taking pics right after dinner was not the best depiction of that, but just be thankful I waited until after pics to eat dessert, ok? Oh, and guess what was for dessert? Drumsticks. We had them last night, too.
Not too weather appropriate (today's high was in the low 50s), but I didn't go outside all day. I probably should have brought a cardigan, but these sleeves do cover the shoulder, so if it were warmer, it would be able to stand on its own easily.
Do you dress for the weather always or do you sometimes scoff in its face? Any other "think warm" believers like me?
