back to reality.

After spending the past 2 days sleeping, for what seemed like 100 hours, and drinking immense amounts of tea I am finally back on my feet. Right in time for the weather to turn bad again. It started raining late last night and hasn’t stopped, which is why I took some indoor shots of my outfit. I actually picked this out last night but I guess I’ll have to reconsider since dragging one of my favorite maxi-dresses through the rain doesn’t seem like the brightest idea. I will head over to the library in a little to study for a few hours before my afternoon class and then head to the gym. Not sure how well that’ll go, considering I have been feeding on plain rice and fluids but I’ll take it easy. For tonight I’m hoping to catch up on all the latest episodes of ‘Rules of Engagement’, curled up on the couch with my mister. He’s been working like crazy lately so I’ll be happy to have a few hours of quality-time to spend with him.
I know the combination of the pattern of the dress and sequin cardigan isn’t for everyone but after spending 48hrs. in my P.J.s I felt like adding a touch of glamour to the outfit :)
