I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Put A Blazer On it!

This morning I woke up feeling more exhausted than when I went to bed. It’s a Monday! Ugh! But I had to get up and get my arse to work and so I threw on the top my boyfriend wanted me to buy at Torrid a couple of weeks ago. I had been putting off wearing it because it’s very brightly colored stripes and a tank style top but it’s also a kind of sheer material. Anyway, I threw on my usual jeans (Torrid, Curvy-skinny, dark wash, 26W) and then this top. The armpit holes are a bit too big and I was just like, “Really?!” when I looked in the mirror but then I just said, “Fuck it!” and grabbed a black tuxedo style blazer from my closet (very old LB blazer, missing all the buttons) and rocked it anyway. I’ve already gotten a few compliments. I like it because of the colors, obviously, but also it’s a nice length. Length of tops is so important! And while I love the newer high-low styles, usually they don’t work for me. It’s not that I feel compelled to cover my belly because I don’t like it, but more because I just like a certain length for my own comfort. I really wasn’t feeling it today but I’m glad I went with it anyhow. My hair was a hot mess and when I got to work they wanted to take my picture for my access badge. I was all, “Really?! On a Monday?! No fair!” but today was the only day so I slapped on some red lipstick (Revlon’s Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout, I love this shit so much) and gave it my best. 😀
I’m still tired as fuck, yes, even after coffee, but it doesn’t matter. Time seems to be flying by faster than I can keep track of it all, anyway! Sometimes that works out for the best and sometimes it bites me in the ass. What can ya do?! 😛
I was really surprised by how much I was able to post the last two weeks on this here blog-a-ma-thing. Maybe I just forgot how for a bit? No, that’s not really it. I just don’t know what to share or how best to share it anymore. Like, I used to right? But lately I feel like no matter what I say or to whom it will only get misconstrued or hurt people. Trauma is a bitch, eh?! Also, I don’t wanna be that girl who only talks about her boyfriend or work. I mean, I could go on and on about my puggyman and how I was singing along to Salt ‘N Pepa’s “Whatta man” but changed the words for my pugyman so I could sing it to him…but that’s not that interesting, unless you met him! Ha-ha!
I guess I’m having a hard time navigating life like I used to because my gear shift is firmly planted in HAPPY and I’m not used to that! I mean, my life ain’t perfect, nor should it be (perfection is a myth!), but I just can’t quite relax and let go. I suppose I’m not doing any harm with that, but my life has been sort of simplified for me in a lot of ways. There’s only so many hours in a day and my own self-care, dog and job take precedence. At least on a weekday/night basis, the weekend is quality time with my favorite fella and oh my glob how our weekends never come soon enough or last long enough. *Sigh* We’re stupid for each other still, and it’s been nearly a year! Can you believe that?! I can’t! I feel so ridiculously lucky, though! Not only do I have my special little puggo with me always and forever now, but I also get this handsome-witty Welshman and his baby puglet (of doom) in my life! Just seems too good, ya know?! But I am so not taking this goodness for granted! I will just have to get used to the HAPPY and rock it like this blazer deal. 😉

    Love it!! Those are totally your boys colors. hahahahaha!! The thing about being afraid to post for fear of upsetting people made me sad. I feel like the people that read into things the wrong way never really knew you at all. It’s their bad. Besides, your blog is your own little place in the cyberworld. You can say whatever you need to say. Sometimes being blunt just needs to be done or a comment has to be put out there. You can’t sensor yourself for every little reason. I feel like this “politically correct” path we are on is becoming more like frivolous lawsuits. Luckily it takes a lot to offend me, so I will always be reading! LOVE
