Thank you to recent commenters and friends who helped me feel more uplifted as of late. Today I feature an eclectic OOTD with a swishy tulle skirt and a colorful zig zag sweater. A velvet scarf by Pucci, adds texture and a dash of neon.
Sad as I am about recent events, made even more powerful by living in the nexus of trouble, I am feeling bolder in these uplifting rainbow of colors.
My back has been hurting. I ruptured a disk and have been under the radar for a while. I have been less active on social media and on your blogs because it hurts to sit. Ouch ! I am recovering slowly, but surely. You can see above the sneakers that I wear. They are not at all fashionable, but they are good for walking inside and out. These Nikes are my necessary shoe choice.
Thankfully, I made it through a day of pipe bombs and unrest. As I transversed the city to see two doctors, I spoke to two individuals who had to leave their places ( one a college, one an apartment building ) because of evacuation orders. It was certainly a bewildering zig zag sort of day.
I did find myself across from Lord and Taylor, as I visited my orthopedic doctor. I was so sad to see this store closing, such an institution. Nonetheless I did wander in and the sales are remarkable. Believe it or not, I did not buy any clothes! ( Or shoes, or coats !!! ) This trend of store closings is not new but it seems to be accelerating. This trend does not bode well.
Passing a pretty fountain, I took in the sound and sight of it. It was calming and lovely to see. Below I share this photo.
So many people comment on my braided hairstyle. When I show them it is just a headband they are quite surprised ! I adore this headband because it adds a bit of polish and takes a mere second to add.
Such a charming restaurant awaited me after a long day of doctor appointments.
A bathroom sign brought a chuckle, so I share it here as well.
Here- a snap from ShopStyle to shop the colorful zig zag sweater.
As a new week comes into focus, I hope for a better course of events.
I hope. I wish. I close my eyes and try to imagine life on a better path with a healthier momentum, and a more optimistic trajectory.
Please hope with me.
