faux fur coat (on sale)
I wore this outfit to The Nutcracker ballet; it seemed appropriate. I was deciding between this one and a toy soldier inspired outfit — which I would still like to post, although Christmas-y in its red and green glory — but this one got the most votes. I don’t often choose my outfits based on votes, but I have to admit that I enjoyed seeing everyone’s choices! What I’ve come to realize is that many of you prefer whimsy, pink, and glitter. My mostly red outfits are never as popular, and I’m not giving up my favorite color anytime soon, but it has inspired me to pull out the tulle and shimmer a little more often. I almost forgot how much fun it can be!
In other news, I spent the last two weeks battling the flu and I am so behind on…everything. I’ve been doing precious little outside of my sister’s house; most of my trip home has been spent sleeping on the bed or the couch, battling fevers, coughing nonstop, and catching my breath when I walk more than a few steps. I’m finally starting to feel better, thanks to prescription medications, lots of sleep, and even more fluids. But I can tell you this much: I am taking it slowly, because last time I thought I was getting better, I got WAY worse. I think I tried to do too much. That being said, I’ll be back on schedule soon — sorry for the inconsistent posts and lack of insta stories!
