On and On

August 2nd, 2010 by Selise

Man alive am I tired. I’m just going to put that out there from the get go. Please do not expect too much of me in the brains division today.

We had a truly fantastic weekend. BBQ on Saturday then off to Splendour on Sunday. It was such a nice treat (thank you so much Sophie & Kate & Alex) and as a result it was real hard to come to work today. I actually nodded off while I was eating lunch. The last time something like that happened was about 7 years ago, I’d been adding gasoline to the midnight oil and fell asleep while I was walking. I woke up to the sound of my wallet and keys falling out of my hand and hitting the dirt. Needless to say I am very much looking forward to sleep tonight.

Speaking of which, I actually thought of this outfit as I was drifting off to sleep in the car on the way back from Splendour last night. Or this morning rather. I love all the layering. The way that the skirt underneath makes the one on top poof out and almost looks like a petticoat or something rather steam punk. The mustard and grey together makes me feel like a Scandinavian stationery supply store. I can get with that.

The No Shopping Report
It’s all over this week. Thursday to be exact. It was tough at Splendour I’ve gotta tell you. I just ignored the stalls entirely except for one that was selling an outstanding collection of Cosby sweaters. I’d only bought a flannelette shirt to wear over my dress so I was worried that I’d be cold. Everyone was all rugged up and I just knew that if I got real cold something was going to have to break. I even picked out the one that I liked the best if it was going to go down that way. It was brown and kind of stripy with cream flower type things. Sounds awesome right? It looked really good with my hair. But I didn’t buy it. The Man offered to buy it for me but I wouldn’t let him either. At the end of the day the only person I’ll be disappointing by caving is myself, I know. But I don’t like to be disappointed.
