If i had to pick a hand gesture to describe my mood today, it would involve a particular finger pointing straight up. Bleh. It all began last night with my shoe debacle (p.s. thanks for the comments, girls. you are *SO* right.) After crying (literally) on the phone to my mom (who was a complete doll, btw), i completely broke down into a fit of hiccuping-noserunning-hugegaspsofair sobs. I don't know what my problem was. But then, the sweetest thing happened. Lola, my precious pup, got up from her comfy position in my bed, walked over to me, and started licking my tears from my face (normally ew, but i let her this time) and hands. She stared at me with those charcoal black puppy eyes, and i completely melted. Tears disappeared, and i found myself smiling. So that's why everyone says having a dog really does lower your stress level and improve your quality of life.
Anyway, the point is, my hysterical sobfest was not a result of lost shoes, but of what i suspect to be the dreaded P.M.S.. On top of all that, i think my fuschia ipod nano was stolen from my car (door must've been unlocked which NEVER happens), and apparently my cute Tarjay doormat was taken as well WHILE my sister was at my apartment. Ugh. I am so over apartment living it's unreal. (and btw? my apartment is considered "luxury" with added gates/security and a ridiculous pricetag for Austin living. bah!)
This morning i woke up grumpy and sleep-deprived. As i was getting dressed i had another "i have NOTHING to wear" moment and decided to focus on my shoes (esp since i've been on such a shoe buying binge lately). Today i'm wearing my relatively new Cole Haan slingbacks (see pics below) for which i paid nowhere NEAR the $225 retail price tag. My toes are also painted in Essie's new Mesmerize - a blue that may seem a bit shocking in the bottle, but surprisingly works really well with my office-appropriate shoes. If you're looking for a fun spring color, i highly suggest it. :-)
My outfit still totally sucks, but at least my feet look good.
Here's to hoping this day improves!
