Lately I haven’t been pre-planning my outfits.  I really should get back in to the habit because I think that I come up with outfits that look and feel good as opposed to feeling overwhelmed at the possibilities and spending a lot of time in the morning searching through my drawers and closet only to find out that my idea doesn’t work outside of my head.

That’s sort of what happened to me on Friday.  I had decided that I wanted to wear my kimono scarf shirt thing.  Even though I wore it with a white t-shirt, skinny jeans, and a pendant necklace last time I still wanted to wear it with a white t-shirt this time.  But, I couldn’t find my short-sleeved white t-shirt.  It is possible that it could be in the laundry basket but I’m not sure.  So, I had to come up with a new plan.

Although I wasn’t too fond of the outfit and felt sort of off the whole day, I had to put clothes on my body to go to work.  I ended up going with an orange-y t-shirt, dark wash cropped jeans, and gold ballet flats.  This time around I tied the front two ends of the shawl to make it more of a “shirt” and less of a topper/completer piece.

I was excited to do something more colorful with my eye makeup that morning.  It doesn’t really show very well in the photo but I did go with a mauve/burgundy/plummy eye look.  But, I didn’t really do anything to my hair.  That’s been the trend lately– I just haven’t wanted to get out the heat styling tools in the morning because it’s been hot and it’s time-consuming.  In this photo my hair is still a little damp.  Later than morning I ended up pulling it up into a quick and messy bun.  I should really think about getting a more Summer-friendly hair do.  Suggestions?
