Mmmmm, back to the diurnal life. I actually prefer working in the hospital at night. But night shifts mean 70 hour work weeks, and that gets draining pretty quickly. I just finished my last shift on Monday morning, and spent Monday catching up on “life things” (finally!). I though if I stayed awake on Monday I could fall asleep and stay asleep Monday night… no such luck. I managed to fall asleep at 8pm but was wide awake at 2 am. Bummer. I did get some amazon shopping and house cleaning done, though. I guess it was a half win? But coming back to work on Tuesday was rough. Coffee. Lots of coffee.
I’ve made some awesome new additions to my closet recently, which has partially made up for life being so blah. For one, I picked up my pants from the tailor. Six new (well, pre-owned, actually) perfectly fitting pairs of pants! Yay! I’ve also been impressed with a few J. Crew offerings recently, and I’ve made a few items permanent residents of my closet. I mentioned in my previous post that J. Crew was likely going to put out some new Elsie Pumps… and they did (you know how in love I am with my suede versions, which seems to be selling out crazy fast!). J. Crew just came out with a black and white pattern version, which is going to be perfect to dress up my basic black outfits… I plan on wearing these tomorrow. 🙂 They also came out with a full leather version. I have to say, these are gorgeous, and I anticipate they’ll be quick to sell out, too. I got the gossamer peach ones, which are more pink than the blush stone version, but are just as stunning. I bought the misty green color too, but I’m not sure I’ll keep them. They are so so pretty, I’m just not sure they would get enough wear. Instead I got the light gray ones to compare. Aaaaaannnndd, I’m still debating getting the metallic camo pair. Gosh, they’re pretty. But what to wear them with? I know what you’re thinking, because I’m thinking the same thing. This is a ton of new shoes. Its pretty ridiculous, but after wearing another pair of these all day today and having no foot pain, these shoes are worth it to me. Honestly they’re the most comfortable pumps I’ve found.
Beyond my excessive shoes additions I have made just a few other purchases. While in store the other day making returns I came across the boyfriend flannel shirt. I was instantly won over by the softness of the flannel. The fit is oversized, but I stuck with my regular size 0 (sometimes I size down to a 00). This top is surprisingly flattering for being a boyfriend fit. I’m looking forward to wearing it all winter! The same style also comes in a dark bluegrass colorway, which is unfortunately sold out in my size. I’ll be on the lookout for it if/ when it pops back into stock! Two soon-to-be purchases are the oversize stripe turtleneck and the brushed wool funnelneck sweat shirt. I just have to decide on what colors to get! Mmmmmm, so cozy.
Alright, enough shopping talk. I should really take some ambien and try to get to sleep before I really turn into a daytime zombie. I can’t wait to take some outfit pictures again with the new stuff! I haven’t been this excited about purchases in ages… it was about time!
