Wow, y’all. We’re coming up on my 1/3rd of the way through . . . . which is, in all, kind of amazing and kind of ridiculous, at the same time.
But I get ahead of myself. Today’s back to gray and gloomy in Chitown ( . . . what a surprise!) and I dressed for my acting class with both weather and movement in mind:
The cardigan is actually a Gap body robe that I bought four years ago? When I wanted a comfortable mocha-colored sweater, but wasn’t finding anything I liked in regular clothing. The t-shirt is from the haul from my friend LJ (and yes, I’m working on a post about the weird and wonderful aspect of getting ‘new to me’ things, expect that this Monday or Tuesday), and I’m excited about its potential for wear in classroom/rehearsal* situations. And of course, y’all know the rest.
I have to say – I’m inching closer to my major “moving is actually happening” lifeshift – and it’s getting a little strange and a little amazing, all at the same time. I’m getting more than a little bummed that I won’t have use for my office clothes any more – y’all, I have things I haven’t even shown you yet, that I’m going to run out of use for in this brave new summer of packing, traveling, class and physical work. (You’d better believe I will be dressing the eff up at my retail gig.)
I just. have. so many beautiful things. I love them all. I’m excited to wear them. But I’m definitely getting overwhelmed by how many of them are of no genuine practical use for me, anymore.
Anyway, that’s a post for another time. The Great Purge? It’s Coming.**
