Take shelter under...

On Monday I went with some friends to the nearest small city. There is a mineral spa to bob around in and tunnels that apparently Al Capone ran around smuggling alcohol into Prohibition blanketed America. Great way to spend the day, especially when gelato is involved as well.

Yesterday I was really looking forward to spending the day by myself, reverting to my introverted self. Instead I was called into work for the busiest day imaginable. I'm happy to have money, but I get cranky if I don't have time alone. After the madness of this day I accidentally drifted into one of my favourite bars on the walk home. I sat on the patio, read my book in silence and nursed my beer for 2 hours just to transition out of the work day.

glasses: Prada
top & jeans: Ricki's 
cardigan: Grad dress from 1999
sandals: Aldo
necklace: gift, from Cuba



Today I am thankful for work, even when I don't really want it. It's good to be busy.

Good for you for taking some alone time! You look cute in this color, I like the vibrancy of it.

You look adorable, those jeans fit you perfectly!

I agree about being grateful for work even when we don't want it. :) Being busy IS good.

I totally wish I could go grab a beer with you!

Reclaim the pubs for space for anything not just mad partying!

And I can't think of a better way to transition! :) Can this cardi look any greater! Just go to show you that pieces you wore back in the day can totally make a comeback and look stunning! Oh, and the jeans look great on you! :)

I would always rather be busy at work than bored, but I'd definitely be cranky if I thought I was having the day off beforehand!

Hope tomorrow is less crazy!

Nothing brightens a day up like gelato. I will attest to that. :) And I agree with you, lady. I want money, but I also value my time a lot. Ugh--to be a responsible adult and functioning member of society is sooo overrated. :)
