Monday's outfit started with the sleeveless black top. Then I realized that this skirt, which I've had for years and years but rarely wear, would complement the turquoise trim on the top. The tights were added once I got to work, as a matter of necessity (not shown: the also-necessary sweater). It's funny that I wear this skirt so rarely and yet manage to spill something on it every time I do. Fortunately it seems to clean up easily enough with some water dabbed on it (and is full enough to cover any temporary water discoloration).
This week hasn't been keeping me especially busy, but for some reason I'd been really stressed out since around Saturday night through this morning. I also haven't been able to sleep enough the last few nights. I'm not sure if there's something in the air or what...my best friend was also dealing with emotional stress of no known cause over the weekend. So yeah, I'd been spending a lot of time feeling my heart racing and stomach knotted and mind making everything into a very big deal. It seems to have passed for now, though after a mini-breakdown this morning...weird weather? Not enough sleep? Mercury retrograde? (Okay, that last one was a joke, but I just looked up the dates to see if we were even in a period like that and it appears the most recent period of Mercury in retrograde ends today. Not that I'm going to give that credit for improving my mood.) Has anyone else been experiencing a particularly stressed week so far?
