What a difference a week can make when it comes to spring weather. Burning up in a light wrap one moment, bundled in a coat the next. This is my often neglected Forever 21 dress. It didn’t get very much use over the winter because it requires constant attention (even with a slip). I love it because of the chevron bodice, but it’s best left for warmer temperatures.
In addition to the striped F21, I’m also wearing a Forever 21 belt (it’s falling apart after three wears, in usual Forever 21 fashion), J Jill cardigan, and Pour La Victoire flats. I’ve been carrying around the free Dana Buchman for Kohl’s tote lately, but it’s also starting to show signs of coming apart. No more faux leather for me. It just can’t hold up with all the things I need to carry with me these days.
In more important news, I’ve heard some alarming reports of street harassment lately. Stay safe! Carry mace or pepper spray if it makes you feel better (but be aware of its limitations), or some other useful personal safety device. These cat keychains are the great because they’re unobtrusive and legal in every state. And um… break some skulls if you’re inclined to (I personally don’t have any reservations about telling men exactly how much physical harm I’m prepared to cause, but I realize not everyone is the same). I would for Lydia and Tia. The last thing my father always says to me is “be aware of your surroundings” and it’s never far from my mind, although I wish it didn’t have to be.
