I know it's a bit ridiculous to wear a scarf with a sleeveless dress. Think of it as a large, soft necklace! Or just consider me silly--that's fine too.
I'm proud of myself for not spilling anything today. In fact, it's amazing that I've had a yellow-and-white dress for a matter of months without splashing coffee in my lap, or dousing my front with salad dressing. Typically I try to avoid pale clothes because their ruination is inevitable. I can't wear a garment that's been blemished by even the slightest stain--I don't know what it is, but stains drive me nuts. Thank goodness for thrift stores, right? Secondhand shopping allows for insensible purchases that don't break the bank. When a clumsy mishap eventually condemns this dress, it won't be a tragedy.
My dad took me out for lunch at a Peruvian cafe/deli called El Mono, which is Spanish for "the monkey". Excursions with him are always a treat, no matter where we're headed. The restaurant itself was unremarkable (except for the cute name!) but hanging out with my dad automatically peps me up.
PS: I waited until early evening to take these photos, hoping for flattering shadows, but maybe a couple more hours would have been advisable. Google told me when to expect sunset, but I still felt paranoid that I'd run out of daylight...
