April Showers Bring Drowned Flowers

Fluoxetine and abilify

Still catching up from being in Phoenix for the first part of the week.  I left this:

Which is why for this week’s outfit photo you get office bathroom selfies! I wanted to participate in Bri’s Third Thursday Trend of florals but the only thing I own that has flowers on it is a scarf. This scarf, actually.

I originally had this on with gray dress pants but there was a button incident before I left for work and now those are in the repair pile.  Also, after my trip I had to say goodbye to my pink gingham shirt.

Turns out that this:

Leads to this:

RIP, pink gingham shirt. I will mourn you and then I will replace you. The question is, do I go with this one from J. Crew Factory or do I hunt for one on Poshmark?

At least the pink gingham shirt had one last hurrah. Not only did it get worn on a mechanical bull, it also got to pet a miniature horse!

Finally, many of you know I am a runner. I had many, many friends at the Boston Marathon on Monday and, as I wrote on my fitness blog, my heart broke on Monday. But on Tuesday I went for a run in the dessert and knew we would persevere.

Next week I will be back to the normal posting schedule. Enjoy your weekend!

First, I apologize for the disappearing act on Thursday.  My husband and I played hooky from our respective responsibilities and went to play at the Museum of Science and Industry.  It felt good to take a day and just be a big kid.

Today, though, I’m back at work.  However, it’s Friday and that means casual!  I’ve had these pants for years and rarely wear them.  For some reason khaki isn’t one of my go-to colors.  However, I recently saw the khaki and lavender color combination online and decided to give it a shot.

How do you feel about khaki?
