I enjoy my job so much that I’m not usually a TGIFer, but this has been a long-ass week and I’m really grateful that I get a break now.
This is a visual representation of how my week has been.
“And they’re practically like this!”

Hey guys, it’s been a terrible, gray bitchy day today. For some reason that prompted me to write several love notes to my boyfriend. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, I was done with their shit.
Anyway, I noticed that a lot of the pieces I use in my outfits over and over for came from thrift stores, and I also realized that I had considered myself too busy to go thrifting for a really long time. So last Saturday I hit the Salvation Army and came away with a nice little score for $25 bucks. So expect that some new thrift store finds will probably be showing up in my posts.
Ignore the expression, I’m just sulking about how late it is.
I bought these shoes with some money my Dad gave me for Easter in 10th grade. Best $60 I ever spent on clothes. Right here I am saying “Ben, make sure you get my shoes.”

Doc Martin boots bought second hand at a small punk supply store in Glendora, Ca that no longer exists.
This would have been a better title if I was on my period.
Anyway, on to the outfit.
Our cat, Medusa came out to see what all the fuss was about.
I just tied on my wrap-around skirt like an apron, so my other skirt was visible from the back.

A good look at the underthings.
Brown scarf is from Macy’s in Portland. I bought it because we were visiting and it was freezing, and I popped into Macy’s to see if I could find something to put around my neck, and it was marked down to $20 from $80, and the sales girl was super nice and from California. I think that experience started my romance with Macy’s. I always go in thinking that there’s nothing in the store for me, and I always leave with some new favorite things for a surprisingly low price.
