Making it work

31 Oct

{ daily outfit: }

{ personal: }

For fear of dropping off the blogosphere completely, consider this an interim update. I’ve been sick for a couple weeks and have been out of commission. Rather than dwelling on all the things I haven’t been able to do–the list is too long–let’s focus on what I have been able to do. Sleep, read and paint my nails. They’ve never looked so good!

And that dress? I made that $14.99 work for me, wouldn’t you agree?

Python dress/H&M, belt/Anthropologie, mocha tights/, brown vegan suede boots/Munro, butterfly necklace/gifted, owl ring/H&M, gold band/family heirloom.
