Bronchitis Sucks

I was MIA last week due to bronchitis. Third time this year! Nasty stuff, plus I had to go to work, fever cough and all. So dressing was comfortable - pajama-like dresses and flats. Like you're wearing your nightie to the office. Here is an example for you.

Felt better on Sunday and even put on heels and a pencil skirt.

I even tucked the ruffle top into the skirt, pretending I have a waist.

This is me at the end of the day, messy hair and crazy face.

The shoes rubbed my big toes a little so I found a solution to the problem. I don't know what the official name is, but these are my half-socklets??? They didn't budge all day and actually helped. I have the same ones in beige, for lighter shoes.

El cheapo earrings from Aldo. I love the color.

And this is my favorite ring. The dude on the coin is some Venezuelan chief.  I bought it from an artisan jeweler. Someone brought a coin for her from South America and she liked it so much that she made copies. This was one of those rings that you put on your finger and it just feels right, and you just leave it on your finger, pay and go home. I've had it for about 10 years and I'm never getting rid of it.

Oh, this is my Essie Lilacism nail polish. I love it. I like Essie polishes and the base coat. I have to stop myself from buying all the beautiful colors they have. I saw Lovie-Dovie on Faux Fuchsia blog and this might be the next color I'll buy.


  1. I love a pencil skirt and that pencil skirt loves you. You look great in that skirt!

    1. Thank you so much, Jude!
      I always feel dressed up when I wear a skirt. Like pearls and heels style. Nice alternative to jeans.
