Week of Wardrobe: July 25th – July 31st, 2016

This is late, but Iv’e got my posts here. Recently I painted my nails a Canadian $10 bill shade of purple, and I was obviously trying to cater my outfits to that polish this week. Everything just has to match, IMO.

This week was a bit daunting with the writing, because on Wednesday I went out and got printer ink for the printer that I USED to own, and didn’t end up going back to Best Buy until Sunday. I’ve recently finished the draft for the horror short story I’ve been working on for the last month or so. Part of me is sad that it’s taken me so long to write it, but another part of me is happy that I’ve at least forced myself to commit to something for once, because I’ve really been crap at committing to a lot of my writing endeavors as of late. Nevertheless, I exchanged the ink for the right ink on Sunday and I’ve printed my story out and it’s not as bad as I thought it was, and THANK GOD I’m finally back on some kind of track, because writing since becoming a parent has become a literal teenage chore for me.

So when it comes to my dressing this week, I’ve been trying to rotate my summer-appropriate pieces in order to keep my ensembles fresh (because I’ve been documenting them). Summer is also horrible because I’m always bloated because it’s always so damn hot that Jon and I usually just get take & bake pizzas instead of committing to making a real dinner and my fingers are always swollen and everything is always awful but I’ve been trying to make the best of things and I can admit that I’ve honestly been happy with what I’ve achieved thus far.

I’ve really gotta say that all the likes and comments I’ve received on Instagram so far have been really wonderful and that in the last month since I’ve started posting pictures of my ensembles that I’ve felt a lot better about my body than I ever have, so thanks to everyone who has liked or commented on my posts. Keep the positivism going.
