Halogen skirt, Nordstrom Rack
Something about October that I can relate to is that Halloween is around the corner. I've decided on a Halloween costume, but it will entail sewing an aviator cap and thrifting a pair of overalls. I suppose I could take the easy way out and buy an aviator cap, but I don't like the idea of spending money on something that wouldn't be used later. (Although you could turn that around and say I'd be wasting valuable time sewing something for one-time use.) I'll probably make the cap out of cotton vs. pleather -- breathable fabrics are a must in this climate!
Last week was Spirit Week at work, so I wore my best PJs to work on Monday and this loud outfit on Tuesday. It was Mix and Match Day, and some kids went all out - wearing two different shoes, having a pigtail on one side of their heads and a bun on the other, etc. I'm a little shy about pattern mixing at work, but I did get a compliment that this was "chic." I ditched the scarf on my desk about an hour into the day, because it was just too humid and warm.
Today kicks off my first official day of a long-awaited fall break! I plan on going in to work a day or two, because my room is in dire need of reorganizing and I'm meeting with colleagues. The weekend was pretty blissful - it was so freeing to enjoy Saturday and Sunday without having to prep for Monday. For this week I hope to do some reading, finish up a few crafts projects, catch an early-morning aikido class, do some work stuff and run errands, and get my Halloween costume ready.
