Jinxed

Today’s Winter Edition challenge prompt is “Embrace a Trend”, which is ironic since I went with what I’m most comfortable with. There are some trends here, though: chambray shirt, boot socks, or stripes (which is apparently a trend, at least according to Freckles in April’s inspiration post) – take your pick. I totally forgot to include the ABC’s of Style challenge though – “H for Hat or Headwrap.” It would’ve come in handy, since it was crazy windy when I took these photos.

To my defense, I was a little distracted. First thing yesterday morning, I discovered that my bike seat was stolen. After a few minutes throwing expletives around, I walked to a bike shop to get a new one. Guess what, they went out of business. I didn’t know because it’s been a while since I went that way. Then, later, I found out that my package from Modcloth was missing. The tracking page said it was delivered, but it was signed for by someone I don’t know and my neighbor didn’t see anything. So now I’m waiting for FedEx to sort it out… hopefully they can either find it or I can file a claim with Modcloth to at least get my money back. And on top of that, the place where I freelance for just dumped a huge load of work on me – not that I’m complaining, but it’s another annoying thing on top of everything else. Seriously. Did I offend some Gypsy witch or something?

    Oh no! Sorry about your bike seat 😦

    Ugh, sounds like a terrible day. Go outside turn around clockwise three times and spit on the ground and come back in. I had a crazy old theater professor who made us do that to get rid of bad luck any time we whistled or said ‘Macbeth’. Hope your week is turning around.
    Also you managed to pull all these trends together really well. I like the chambray under the stripes. Really cute 🙂

      Thanks Loren! Everything is sorted out even though I didn’t perform the spit ritual, but I must remember that next time something goes wrong 😀
