But enough of my Southern lineage talk.
The point is, its not raining. Thanks a lot. I dressed for the occasion in pants and a sweater. Which is a good thing, because its freezing in my office today.
P.S. Do you know anyone who has mineral interests in New Mexico? Because I've probably attempted to call them today. I feel like I've called the entire state!

I've been watching MakeupByTiffanyD (blog here and youtube channel here). She is so down to earth and easy to watch, and I'm inspired to do a little more with my makeup and hair because of her. We both have fine and flat perfectly stick-straight hair, so its good to watch her for a little tutorial.
Also, I've determined that the new powder I've bought is too light. I hope to remedy that soon!

The Mexican food I chose to scarf down at lunch, however, is not feeling so great. I'm fighting off sluggish and full in order to finish up my day with a little activity at the gym. Wish me luck!
My attempt at "beach waves". My hair is STICK-STRAIGHT so you have to cut me some slack. I was actually pretty proud of this look yesterday!! :)

This belt was my great-grandmother's when she was my age. I love it so much.

Today after work I could do many important things:
I may run by the post office and mail a package (or I may wait until tomorrow).
I am considering sneaking into a friend's pool (or I could just plan on going with him Saturday).
I might lay in bed and finish The Girl Who Played With Fire (or save that activity for this evening).

That didn't happen for me today.
So I went with something that you just can't go wrong with: a neutral gray skirt, white oxford, and red belt. I sassed it up a little by including a white oxford with silver stripes, a blood red belt with snakeskin print, and some natural enemies in my jewelry.

Yesterday I watched a video online at msn.com on how to give yourself the perfect blowout.
I am incapable.
I did, however spend 25 minutes this morning attempting it.
I probably ran my electricity bill up 25% because of how often I had to turn the blow dryer off, readjust my hair on my round brush and then pick it back up and start again. I was too clumsy with that brush. And it took way too long.
But my hair does look a bit more

As you can see, I DID NOT leave my camera sitting on the table at the bar that we ended up at later that night, which is really good because I was not looking forward to calling and asking if anyone found a camera. I could picture them asking if I could identify any of the photos on the camera, and me having to say "There's about fifty pictures of me posing in different outfits." (I'm never really on top of the whole erasing thing.)

1. I'm so sorry for this picture quality. I'm hoping that I just left my camera sitting on the table next to my purse this morning, and not at the bar Saturday night. Verdict arrives this evening. In the meantime, I'm stuck with the iphone camera. Really, Apple? Give me a better picture quality than that, please!
2. It took every ounce of willpower I had not to put something red or hot pink with this outfit! I tried to stay true to Chanel form though, and resist the temptation to throw on some pink heels or a red headband.
Does anyone watch Hung? I love Anne Heche as Jessica, and I like her conservative outfits even more. Last night she was wearing a tweed pencil skirt with an oxford knotted in the front. This outfit is an homage to that look! So cute :)
