Blank Stare

So before California got all WEST AFRICA HOT on us (after a summer of cooler weather), it was actually a consistent pleasurable 75-degrees. While most people would enjoy that - I was a lot more confused on what to wear. Not cold enough for jackets & sweaters, not warm enough for me to wear shorts & a tank...just so in the middle. So I did both: paired a skirt & a sweater for a casual outing.

If you know me, you know that I love me my scarves! I just recently purchased this one from H&M; I love the colors & the material is really cool too - it's kind of a blend, so that it's just not like a piece of cotton. I'm always trying to look for new ways to tie my scarf - this one is super simple: fold diagonally, knot one side, tie the loose ends around your neck.

Also, before summer's-end, I just had to wear teal nail polish one more time before I start wearing purples, plums, and reds. I intermixed two colors of the same family and split them 3/2 (3 nails had 1 color, 2 nails had the other) so there was a slight difference in nail color, but not in a Rainbow Bright way.

For some reason, when Rye Bread was taking these photos, I kept zoning out. I don't know if I didn't have my caffeine yet, or if I was just in "another place," but look at all of my blank stares caught on camera! Oh yeah, and this was the first time in a LONG time I finally wore eyeliner. Oh how I've missed you so!
