Colour Blocking!

This is my first foray into colour blocking, and I was THRILLED with the results! This was one of those outfits where all the pieces are near each other (the shirt and skirt were hanging next to each other, and the tights were on the dresser under them), just begging to be worn together!

I usually strive to wear a different outfit every day, but this is one I could see repeating! I love this blouse, and have a feeling it's going to be a go-to piece this summer. And the red skirt is always a hit, it makes me feel great to wear it! And purple tights? Just too much fun :) I wore my silver leather jacket with the outfit because it's fun too! Haha. I also felt that I didn't want to add a fifth colour, sometimes there is such a thing as "too much!" Or, as Tim Gunn would say: "...that's a whole lot of look!"

I considered wearing neutral shoes as well, but... it's pretty hard to go wrong with blue suede booties!

I had a girls' night with some of my friends last night -- it was so much fun! I'm feeling it today though :P I should know not to mix vodka and Southern Comfort... this is the thrid time I've done it, with the same headache-y results! Haha, oh well. I'm also aching because I've started a new exercise regimen. After I did it on Friday I felt fine, and kind of wondered if I'd done enough: I did situps, squats, and lunges, and then worked with my pilates band, and then I went for a quick jog around the block. Oh boy, did I ever feel it when I got up on Saturday! And then I worked at my appliance store and had to move around stoves and garage door openers, hahaha. It's good though, such an exhilarating type of pain!

I also got to talk to Billy today, I called the hotel he is staying at. Unfortunately he was sleeping, so he was groggy when we were talking! It was nice anyway though, it's so great to talk to each other. He gets back in 12 days! This trip has been really good for us, I think, because it's making me realize how much I really do love him and miss him, but also that I can be independent and am fine on my own. I've found in the past ho problematic it can be to be defined by your relationship, and am glad to find that that's not the case for Billy and I! That's not to say I won't be ecstatic for him to get back! Eeeee!!!
