Wow, I looked at the date to write on this post, and I realized we are 3/4 the way through February already. It’s always amazing to me how slow January feels and then how fast February goes. I’m headed to Floria tomorrow to shoot some spring outfits.
And yes, I realize that’s all I’ve talked about for the past two weeks, but it’s pretty much all-consuming at this point. Between keeping up with this week’s posting schedule, getting blog posts for next week prepped, and planning outfits to shoot while I’m down there, there hasn’t been time for much else. I’m meeting with a couple of different photographers, so it will be interesting to see how the pictures turn out and how they compare.
I went to the mall yesterday to look for a few things I wanted to complete some of the outfits I’m bringing, but I didn’t find much. Our stores aren’t quite there yet with the spring inventory, but I did notice lots of super bright colors at LOFT. I think the age of neutrals is rapidly coming to an end.
As much as I love neutral looks and find them soothing, I’m definitely ready to start seeing more color, so I picked up this sweater in the pink. It’s pretty bright, but I think it will look great with white denim.
Despite my disappointment with yesterday’s shopping trip, I think I have a good assortment outfits. I suppose I could always go shopping when I get down there and see if I find anything new and different than what they have up here, but I really don’t want to waste any of the Florida sun inside a shopping mall.
My bedroom is currently a mess of outfits grouped together all over the floor, so now I need to figure out how I’m going to fit them all into my suitcase. I definitely plan to check a large bag, but I don’t want to take more than one. That’s the nice thing about spring/summer clothes; they don’t take up a lot of room. So anyway, that’s my plan for the afternoon!
It hasn’t been a very exciting weekend around here. We stayed in both nights. Actually, Paul and I tried to go out to eat on Friday night at a nearby bar & grille that we like when we’re feeling super casual and don’t want to cook.
We usually go on the earlier side and can often get a high top at the bar, but when we got there at 6PM on Friday, it was mobbed and there was a 20 min wait for a table. We weren’t feeling it, so we went next door and got a pizza to take home.
As annoying as that was, it was something of a confirmation that this pandemic really is in the rear window… at least as far as learning to live with it is concerned. It’s pretty much endemic at this point, and I could not be more happy about that. It’s been a long time in coming!
In other good news, my second visit to the chiropractor did the trick, and my neck and back is feeling a lot better. It’s not 100%, but it’s close enough, and I’m so relieved. I was afraid I’d be traveling with this pain and stiffness, and since sitting in the car really bothers me when this issue flares up, I’m sure sitting in a plane for 2 1/2 hours would not be pleasant.
And there we go, we just came full circle, ha! I told you I can’t think of much other than my trip right now. I’ll be sharing some of my adventures on my Instagram Story, if you want to follow along, and of course I’ll have a full recap on the blog when I get back.
