numb and tired and perfect for the working day





Outfit Details:
t-shirt - Gap
lace top - H&M
Maurissa messenger bag - courtesy of melie bianco
shorts - Urban Outfitters
socks - gift from Tessa (from Target)
grey oxfords - courtesy of Ruche
belt - thrifted
makeup note: Laura Mercier lip stain in hibiscus

Remember how I went on and on about how fun it is to stay up all night? Well, it's not fun anymore. Apologies for looking like a miserable being in the pictures; I am sleepy sleepy. I can't remember the last time I had a night of sleep; I have just been catching a couple hours here and there. Today, I spent a solid few hours thinking it was still Monday. Everything feels like one very long, drawn out day. I'm really looking forward to getting back on a [somewhat] normal schedule, once I am all caught up with work. I think I might have taken on too many projects and too many orders. My hand is healing pretty nicely, but I'm still having issues using scissors. Everything takes three times as long!

Enough of my whining - having too much work is a good problem to have. Plus, a family friend just rescheduled our dinner date, and that means I don't have to change out of my shorts and knee socks and into jeans and a snuggie. What will I do with this newfound free time? By golly, I think I might take a nap.
