Outfit of the Day
Oh Friday. What are we going to do with you. Today is one of those days where I go to work not knowing what my life after work will be like. It often happens on Thursday’s as well as Friday’s; everyone will make a last minute decision to go out for happy hour or drinks and snacks after work. You gotta be prepared for anything because there’s no time to go home to change and get ready again.
My outfit today is pretty versitile. It could be a day or night outfit, especially if I do a quick makeup touch-up and add some lipstick. When I left my apartment this morning, later than I planned as usual, I was a bit flustered. I am amazed daily at how many things I can hold at one time in one hand; my cellphone, headphones, sunglasses, travel cup (of iced water), keys, and newspaper. Seriously, in one hand. Like Stephanie Octopus Fingers. Call me that. Only today, I decided a great place for my newspaper was under my arm. Turns out it wasn’t the best place.
I got the old tenant’s health insurance card, I figured
it was only right to return it to the sender. Photo op!
After I got to work and washed the subway germs off my hands (daily routine), I noticed a big grey stain on the side of my shirt. It took me a solid 15 minutes to figure out what it was, then I realized it was on my arm too. Newspaper INK!!!! Ahhhh. Annoying. And that doesn’t come out easily. I tried to get it out with water, didn’t work.
Then I realized how disgustingly wrinkled this little top is. I keep a little mini straightener in my desk at work to fix my hair on the humid days when my hair does a weird Johnny Bravo thing on the front. Being the creative handyman that I am, I tried to get the winkles out with the straightener. Didn’t work either, but was worth a shot.
So now I sit, in my wrinkled, newspaper ink stained salmon colored shirt that I will be wearing into the evening, pouting. Also, I thought I should point out that when I told my mom about my ink sitch, she asked if it looked trendy, like if words transferred perfectly onto my shirt to make it look like I did it on purpose, or if it was just a big smudge. Cute, but no mom, it’s just a big ugly smudge. Way to be positive though!
Top: Naked Zebra
Shoes: Dolce Vita
Earrings: Gas Bijoux
Here’s to making the best of it and remembering why I don’t wear bright colors. Ink smudge trend? Probably not. TGIF.
Happy Friday my little pumpkin pies!
