I’m not typically a slacker (though that is certainly an aspiration) but April put the rest of the year (so far!) to shame. Work was much as usual, but my personal life — whoa. I started writing again, picking up the 30 page outline of Archer & Bell vol. 2 where I had left it off over a year ago. It was very exciting there for a few days … until I realized that the pace at which I’ve written in the past is probably not realistic at this time, with everything else that is going on in my life. I want (and need) writing to be fun, which means that I can’t (and won’t) hold myself to a rigid schedule. Hopefully, the book will see the light of day at some point. Speaking of other fun things, I also read a bunch of books and watched a ton of Netflix, and somehow still managed to keep up with life, which is some kind of miracle, and also the reason why I am constantly sleep deprived. No regrets; 10/10, would do it all again. And that is still not all. I also did some thrifting, got microblading (!!), and had my initial consultation for Lasik surgery, which is happening very very soon.
But let’s not forget why you’re here (I assume): the clothes.
I’ve been doing this blogging thing for a long time — my 7th blogging anniversary is just around the corner — so I can’t help but feel like I’m becoming more and more predictable, at least as far as my outfit formulas go. These are all combinations you’ve seen before, with a few new(ish) pieces mixed in. I think I ended up using more prints than in recent months; I’m not sure how I feel about that. On one hand, I tend to *feel* more comfortable in plainer outfits these days. On the other hand, I *like* looking at more colourful, print-heavy outfits. I’m still working on finding the right balance, one day at a time.
For fun, here’s a look at my April 2015 and April 2016 recaps.
