Give Me the Boot!

I don't mean kick me to the curb. I literally mean give me the boot because I can't seem to find them on my own.

I got these ones almost three years ago now. I have the hardest time finding boots that work for me. Okay, I can usually find booties because they don't fight with me when I try to put them on. These are between booties and mid-calf.

Tall boots: forget it. Even if I can get the zipper over my fat calves, the top of the boot hits my knee and they scruch down. Not in the cool scrunchy boot style. More like the I'm wearing hand-me-downs that won't fit me correctly for two more years look.

Mid-calf: where are they? Let me clarify: where are ones that don't cost over $200? Is my issue really that I have wide calves? Or is it the fact that I'm cheap? I like to say economical.

How do you like my autumn outfit? I think I have every color of changing leaves on. Argh, I should have worn my yellow earrings. Do our two gold-colored vehicles in the background count?

Round and Round

Yes, I am back to curly, wavy, whatever you call my natural hair. I wore it straight the last three days and I had to let it be free today. More so I didn't have time to blow dry and flatiron this morning.

Don't fret, I have not given up on wearing my hair straight on a regular basis. I just need to get into a routine of showering at night, letting my hair air dry, and then flat ironing it. It's so much easier to wake up with straight hair than wackadoodle hair the next day. Plus, when I wear my hair straight, I can go one day longer than my usual two without washing. My showering routine and hair-washing secret--you didn't realize this post is PG?
Wanted to share today's outfit and sadly this was the best picture. Also sad when the least messiest background in the whole house is behind the bathroom door. Does this look like a schoolgirl outfit? Maybe if I had better lighting and a real camera (yes, still my fruit phone) you could see the pleats in my skirt and the boyfriend cardi.
Just preparing to bring back "Jen-in-a-cube"!

That's all for today. Nothing clever or inspirational to say. Just trying to get back into the blogging world. If all the world's a stage, does that explain why my blog has no audience? Well, except you, Chastity. Hi!

Let's Get This Straight

After an awesome summer, the rains have finally
returned to Seattle. What sense does it make that I've decided
to start flatironing my hair and wearing it straight?

I'm back and going to strive to post regularly though not daily. I decided to clean up my sidebar because it was getting to be like that extra drawer in your bathroom--the one full of buttons. I saw this display template and decided to go with it because I want to concentrate more on posts and not being an art director of sorts. I like the simplicity yet sleekness of this display. You know me though, I hem and haw and you again may see a blog that resembles a high school locker with lots of color and cut outs and whatever the kids decorate with nowadays.

I may end up adding a button here-and-there because I will probably join challenges which usually requires posting the hosts button. How can I not join challenges? It's like the host is handing me a post idea. I will probably also give a shout out to bloggers who have supported me through bad posts and even worse pictures.

I'd like to speak more about my change of hairstyle but I will save that for my next post. I think long posts contributed to my blogging demise. I shall stick to the K.I.S.S. rule.
