Running Around

Yesterday I had some running to do. Bunch of errands including getting a new passport instead of the expired one (missed it completely!), getting the last of the schoolbooks for the Kid, buying a birthday gift for my Mom (hello, Lancome loose powder) and an attempt to visit the employment office which turned out to be shut in the morning (The bastards! Who'd have thought they didn't work all the time being the employment office!!!)
That's why I wore my most comfortable dress. I admit, it makes me look like I have linebackers shoulders. But it didn't really matter. It was so hot and sweaty outside, I could cry.
Generally I dislike dresses with "ears" but I bought this one for the color. And my Zara sandals perfectly go with it.

I had some time to kill between my appointments. So I popped into the mall to see if H&M had the dress I'd been stalking and to take my picture in one of their dressing rooms. Both missions were accomplished. Here is the picture.

And here is the dress. It should be perfect for our vacation if we ever get the tickets on such short notice.

After finishing the passport business at the local branch of Ministery of Interior I came home and we had a little celebration for my Mom. Happy Birthday, Mom!!!

And in the evening I drove to my Kid's school for the parents-teachers meet up. I wore my new dalmatian skirt and a plain white tee with flats. The skirt material is a bit stiff and it felt kind of tight. Looks like I need to rethink my diet. I'm spending most of the time at my desk translating. I do stuff around the house but it's not really that energy consuming. Dog walks are short (he's 8 years old and not into long trips around the fields anymore).

After school I went into yet another mall to replace the school logo on Kid's t-shirt that came off. They did it for free, so for the first time in my life I entered a mall with 4 shekels in my wallet (about a buck) and left the mall with the same amount of money.  Here I am in the logo-sticker shop, trying to sneak a photo.

And doing the same in the Mango chain-store.

My necklace matched the skirt even a little too perfectly. It looks like stone but it's plastic, I've had it for years but hardly ever wear it.

It was a long day. Came home, watched the Mentalist and went to bed. I'll be home for the rest of the week.


  1. That spotted skirt is the business - I love going to search for one in the shops here!!!

  2. Dalmatian print is the new leopard? Sure thing! I got the pants as well (at the price of about 13 bucks US, why not?)
