AJ Wears :: A Leather Vest

Did I forget to blog in June?

Oops. 

Honestly, it's been a whirlwind of stuff the past month. We sold our house, packed up everything we own into a 12x9 Pod, and embarked on homelessness for two weeks while we wait to close on our new place. I'm currently in the second week of homelessness, staying in a friend's basement and wearing the same outfit every day.

The outfit you see here is one I managed to salvage from a suitcase and throw together for dinner with friends that were in town from Dallas. The hair isn't so much washed as it was "watered", but I passed for a fairly normal person that night at Sushi Cafe considering that mere hours earlier I was wearing an outfit for the third consecutive day: Gap yoga pants and a "Puppies Make Me Happy" tank top.

We close on Friday. Just a few more days until I live out of boxes instead of a suitcase.

AJ Wears :: A Pink Vest

I perplexed a young millennial today. See, I technically fall into the category, but I'm so old that I had to ask someone, "Is this a top or a skirt?" So I often forget the difference that 10 years can make and say weird things. Like...

"Oh, I love your shoes, where do you get them?" Me: "Zara! They're very Annie Hall, right?"

***BLANK CONFUSED STARE***

It's fine. Everything's fine. If you need me, I'll be watching Diane Keaton's Snapchat.

AJ Wears :: A Bunch of Black

I just can't with the 90's (temps, not the era. all hail overalls!) any more, so when I got dressed this morning I just NEEDED SOMETHING. So I added a vest. I wouldn't normally wear a long vest with some culottes, but I've gone crazy. Something in my head has snapped, and now I just wear whatever pops into my head because FASHION. I'm even wearing Spanx so it all hangs properly, because I'm an ADULT. FALL. UGGS. BUZZWORDS.

An adult who uses A LOT OF CAPS LOCK OKAY??? I'm actually not sure I brought a full brain back from Vegas, but I did bring some nice presents for myself from Neiman Marcus. Now enjoy this extremely odd outfit that I actually really enjoyed wearing today, even if it kind of looks like a muumuu. I'm just embracing the 90 year old inside of me.
