Cardigan Over Garden
I listened to Lolita while walking my neighbor's dog, and kept listening until after I was done taking outfit photos. (Relevant rant: "Lola In Slacks".) It's one of my favorite books, important to me both as a woman and a writer, so I frequently play it again. I've actually only read the story once, because Nabokov's prose is denser than the The Scarlet frikkin Letter. (Just kidding--no one trumps Hawthorne.) Hard books are better on tape, in my experience. Eventually I'll make it past Tom Bombadil in The Lord of the Rings...
Today I suffered from All My Clothes Are Boring Syndrome. (Have you been vaccinated?!) Looking at these pictures, I think what I wore was pretty cute, but it felt... I dunno, typical. Unfortunately the only remedy I'm familiar with involves spending money. There are some low-budget treatments--remix clothes in new ways, box up half of your wardrobe for the season, etc--but they're not as satisfying as a new dress. (Buy 4 me plz?)
Petty complaints aside, life is good. My dog's hair is growing back and I have a sunny yellow purse.
