More Summer, More Black

My favourite all black summer outfit makes another appearance (I find when it gets really hot I basically wear a series of permutations of this outfit; boring, perhaps, but it’s working for me and I’m too damn irritable in the heat to give much of a damn). Guys, I am not a summer person.

I'm Both Alive and Having a Good Hair Day - Take That Universe!

Worn to work on one of my first days back after Vegas. I think I look shockingly good for a woman who basically feels half dead (seriously, I was up until 4 am playing blackjack on more than one occasion on that trip)!

All the Frills: Books!

The pile of things that I’m currently reading. I’m absolutely loving Bad Feminist. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it.

Do you read multiple things at a time?

In case you haven’t noticed, I do not give up on my black clothes in the summer (seriously, it was 44 degrees when I was in Vegas and I packed nothing but black!).

In other news, I just got back from a 4-day work trip in eastern Canada and I am completely mentally and physically drained. It was the most frustrating and exasperating work-related thing I think I've ever experienced. Not to mention that the trip itself was just a nightmare - one of those things where everything that could go wrong did (I forgot to pack some things I needed, the place I was staying was not pedestrian friendly so even the simple act of trying to find a store to buy my missing toiletries turning in a two hour death march in 30 degree heat, I got caught in a rainstorm and soaked and hadn't packed any extra clothes, the flight home got delayed and I had a lot of anxiety about missing my connector flight, etc, etc). So I will be resolutely taking it easy for the next week!

All the Frills: New Accessories

I treated myself to a necklace from Stella & Dot earlier this month --- and I am completely smitten with it. Lately I find myself gravitating toward very simple, almost minimalist accessories, and this piece is just a perfect example of that.
