To distract myself from my severe anxiety, I thought in addition to Not
Dead Yet Style's Visible Monday, I'd do the Two Birds Inspiration Monday outfit challenge: "Don't be afraid of the dark." I actually had my thrifted chambray shirt ready to go, but then I panicked this morning because I forgot to paint my nails green (instead of green flats like Katie's wearing 'cause I don't have any green shoes). Well, I was really panicking over the dentist, but didn't want to admit that. I also didn't want to dress up for him.
Wearing most fake Monday a.m. grin evah.
Report wedges ~ Ross Dress for Less
Loft jeans ~ $11 at final season clearance
Papaya Top ~ thrifted
Antique pearl ring ~ mom's
Fake diamond pendant ~ doesn't everyone have one?
So I ditched the lighter chambray, and picked wings to wear instead. The inspiration I took from Katie, who was clearly not going to the dentist in her outfit, was keeping things simple with a nearly matching top and denim bottoms, and minimal accessories.
I think someone clipped these wings.
I was a quiet, dreamy kid who used to dream about flying all the time, so maybe that's why I thrifted this particular top. I kind of wanted to fly away during the middle of my work day, when I had to do something I haven't had to do in years, thanks to the miracle of the Internet.
I had to call clerks of multiple county courts in another state, because I am trying track down a divorce judgment for an individual who does not know when, where, or even if the divorce took place (it happens more than you think). The information is not available online. I had forgotten about the disdain, heck, even downright dislike, some government officials have for the public. Basically, I got a "how could you not know if you're divorced or not? I'm divorced and I know it." lecture from one clerk, like I didn't know if I'm divorced or not. Helllloooo, not my personal issue, just need ya to look up a name, puh-leeze, since it's your job.
This is the look I had on my face when getting lectured about peeps who don't know if they're divorced or not.
Fly me away from here. The shirt didn't work. The dentist was worse than I imagined. Maybe I'll try Calgon.
At least the end of Monday is looking up. My neighbor has invited The Teen and I over for spinach lasagna and peach cobbler. So I'ma fly, or maybe just waddle, on over there :P
Sasha Jane, the kitteh I brought back from my blogger meetup with Megan Mae, says "hey".
Hope your Monday was fairly painless, but if you want to share anything you wanted to fly away from today, feel free to
