Ugggghhhhhhh...what a long week. I have to admit that blogging hasn't been much of a priority, what with school and work. I had a paper outline due at the beginning of the week and I was the only one in my department for the week with a deadline looming over me. I feel bad that I wasn't able to do more, only because I didn't want my coworker/buddy to come back to pure chaos come Monday. I did the best that I could though, and only had one major freak out. I think I mentioned this before, but I have a big problem with anxiety. I used to get panic attacks fairly regularly but over the past few years, with therapy and hard work,  I was able to manage it much better. That doesn't mean they don't still happen though. When they do happen, I sort of feel like all that hard work was for nothing, which in turn makes the anxiety attacks worse. Anyways, the point is, that considering the situation I was in, I count myself lucky that I only had one. Small victories right?

So after a mostly blah week weather wise, today was pretty nice out, so I wanted to summer it up a little. The skirt and shoes are from ModCloth. I have never ordered shoes from them before. Mostly because shoes jack up the shipping price significantly, but also because they carry so many brands, it makes it sort of hard to figure what might work size wise. The shoes are a tad big, but I think sizing down would have been a mistake. I managed to wear them all day and so far, no blisters. I had wanted a pair of mustard heels for awhile and I had a coupon code, so I figured why not. They weren't as mustard yellow as I though they would be but all in all, I'm quite pleased with them.

The skirt was from the same order. Oddly enough, I wasn't planning on pairing them together but when I was getting ready for work this morning, it just sort of made sense. I got a lot of compliments about the skirt from all the ladies in my office. It's great for summer and is an appropriate length. It does manage to catch a lot of wind though, which caused me to have to hold it down several times so I wouldn't flash people. I didn't think this would be a problem since it's much longer than some of the other skirts I own but you can't stop the wind. I imagine that this will get a lot of wear this summer.

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend. Tomorrow will just be a relaxing day, maybe get some errands done, maybe have a Veronica Mars marathon, who knows.
