So, here are the Andy Trousers in silk crepe. (see my cotton canvas version here) I did not wear this outfit for very long yesterday, only to work in the office a little bit and test out the shoes around the house and make sure they’ll work for me (they do). Anyway, it’s WAY TOO HOT for real shoes.
I had the trousers hemmed about an inch and am much happier with the length. I have to be honest though, I wonder if these are the right size. I do feel a little like the rise could be longer, when I have the waist pulled up to my natural waist. This, I understand, is why some ladies are buying tall inseams, for a slightly longer rise (it’s an inch longer). I also wonder if they’re a bit big on me in the leg, but that’s an easy fix by getting them tapered in a bit. They’re certainly not big at the waist – I would be afraid that in a small, tall, the waistband would be to small. I just need to live with them a bit I think – I’m overthinking everything lately, and when I initially tried them on after receiving them, I loved them, so I just need to let this moment of dissatisfaction pass…
Randomly, I bought this Matcha from Nordstrom, of all places, because it’s 40% off as part of their Casper pop-in. I’d been wanting to try it, but not at the original price…I also had a $20 note so BONUS 🙂
And OMG THIS Ace & Jig X Schoolhouse lamp is JUST WHAT I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR FOR MY OFFICE!!!!!! But why can’t I spend $300 on a lamp? And no problem on a dress??
I THOROUGHLY enjoyed Rules of Civility, which I finished this week. It was so well-written and fun to get lost in; I highly recommend it. I moved on to something completely different – the latest Brandon Sanderson book, Oathbringer (I am first and foremost a fantasy/sci-fi fan!), but it’s been so long since I read the previous books I’m a little lost.
I am also anxiously awaiting the arrival of An Everlasting Meal I ordered used from Half Price Books. I saw it mentioned on Literless and can’t wait to read it. I’ve been trying to sit down and read non-fiction for an hour or so when I’m finished working every day so I’m getting quite a pile of books built up on my table. I really enjoy doing this when I do make time for it; it’s very satisfying and much more rewarding than just turning on Netflix.
Which I definitely still watch, haha, just not until at least 8 PM. This week I started watching Marcella. And whoa. It’s all over the place, and quite disturbing, but well-done, generally. It’s a good diversion for when I need it though. That’s all I want from TV sometimes, distraction from literally EVERYTHING else.
Nothing special planned for the weekend. I will probably work quite a bit after receiving a HUGE box full of consignment items I’d like to get up next week 🙂
What are you buying, reading, watching and doing lately? Any fun plans for the weekend??
