When it rains

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall

My life has generally been going pretty well, you guys. I had a great summer, I kicked butt at the Chicago triathlon, and all seemed right with the world.

And then my driver’s license and all my credit and debit cards were stolen.  Jason had some car issues that meant we had to go to Indiana two weekends in a row (three if you count this upcoming weekend when I will not be going with). Chewie seems to have developed the hacking crud and we’re keeping our fingers crossed it’s not dog flu. In other words, all the shit hit the fan at the same time.

So, I’m sure you’ll forgive me if I go with a mindless outfit and revert to a basic color combination: red, white and black.

I got my driver’s license replaced the same day it was stolen (thank goodness for having a passport). I got my credit cards shut down and reported before the thief could rack up too many charges and they’ve all since been replaced. Jason’s parents were nice enough to lend us a car and Chewie is young and healthy so I’m sure he’ll make a full recovery.

Still, it would be nice to end the summer on a high note and start to feel inspired to create outfits again. So, keep your fingers crossed the universe turns around and at least the rest of this week goes well. Mmmkay? Thanks.
