Fortieth day of work selfie

This outfit is kind of dull, but not every day has to be super fancy.  You may have also noticed my lack of makeup for several weeks.  That’s a combination of lack of time and lack of caring and also the fact that I don’t really find it necessary everyday.  Once in a while, I may feel like it, but the majority of the time I’m perfectly fine without it.  The best thing about this is at the end of the day, not having to remove it.  You wouldn’t believe how much relief it is to not have to spend time trying to properly remove your makeup before you go to bed.

This top is from an Orb warehouse sale.  The random ruffles across it elevate it out of it’s otherwise plain status.  The grey sweater is from Jacob.  It originally came with a belt, but who knows what happened to that?  I’ll probably keep wearing these black Marshalls pants until I shave my legs and go back to wearing dresses.  But who knows when that will finally happen?  Your guess is as good as mine.  I will keep wearing my UBC Sub jewellery until it breaks.

Along with lack of makeup, you may have also noticed my lack of doing anything with my hair.  What am I supposed to do with it?  My hair just doesn’t naturally shape well and is always super frizzy.  I usually don’t have time or just don’t remember to attempt to add product to smooth it out.  My method of doing my hair involves tying it back in a messy ponytail and hoping for the best.  Then later, removing the hair tie and seeing how it looks down.  And if it’s not acceptable, putting it back in a ponytail.  The frizziness of my hair seems to be immune to hair products.  Oh well. 

Twenty-eighth day of work selfie

Oh my God, I’m actually wearing pants!  I may or may not have run out of dresses at this point.  Or the weather was getting better and I didn’t want to wear boots but I couldn’t find flats or other appropriate shoes to go with my dresses.  My toenails are not currently ready for the public.  Do you ever get annoyed and clip them, but then you keep going and clip them too close to the skin, and not even evenly?  Or is that just something weird that I do?  The point is, they’re too short right now, and my pinky toes barely even have a nail.  I’ll have to wait until they grow to a decent length and then get myself a pedicure before I bust out the sandals.  Also, I haven’t shaved my legs and the one pair of leggings I have are kind of thick, so yeah.  Pants!  I got these black pants the one time my friend took me to Marshalls after Pirate Pak Day at Whitespot.  The purple top is from Ross Dress for Less in the States and the black cardigan is from Bryan’s at Lansdowne Centre.  The scarf is from an Orb Warehouse sale.  I guess I used to always buy scarves when I went to those.  The necklace is from a Christmas craft fair I went to at Steveston Community Centre with my parents last year.  I like that it’s adjustable so you can wear it at various lengths, long or short.  Plus, it’s got just the right amount of bling.  You can’t really tell from the picture, but my Claire’s earrings are in the shape of little black safety pins.  And for added bling, my UBC SUB ring and my dollar store bracelet.  Because that’s how classy I am.

I hate pants because it’s so damn hard to find a pair that actually fit.  So you’ll likely be seeing a lot of these ones until I miraculously find a new pair.
