 I wore very little makeup today, because my eye is all allergic reaction-y. It really is obvious in these photos!

I've been so cold at work, that today was a "Homey don't play that" kind of outfit. I think it works really well, and this might even become a weekend wear outfit.

I changed out of this coat. I now hate this jacket.

Reflections on 1 year of DYT

This week marks one year since I joined DYT. The photo on the left is from December 2, 2015, and was taken when I purchased the DYT Type 1 course. I returned to the same place (with the same horrible lighting, though I have a new cell phone that compensates for the lighting better). What a difference!

Also notable from my DYT journey was this week last year, I received a bunch of Black Friday shopping goodies that I thought would fit my Type 1 nature. Neither they nor I were Type 1!

Funny enough, by December 14, I'd already decided Type 1 wasn't right for me!

I've been participating in a No Repeat November, and have done a great job... during the work week. I really struggle with dressing my truth on the weekends.

Perhaps some clever words will bring someone to this post with insight on how to style Lularoe Amelia for petite ladies. I *feel* fine in the dress, but when I look at these pictures, I just look swallowed up by the skirt. The dress comes below my knees. I can't decide if I should try to have it hemmed, or just pass it on to someone else altogether. Suggestions or ideas much appreciated!

I don't know if all people are this way or not, but for me, this date is memorable. It's the day I started dating my boyfriend in 9th grade. How I remember November 3 23 years later, I do not know, but every year I tick it off in my mind.

What a weirdo.

Speaking of weird, today's planned outfit just felt weird. I couldn't figure out which shoes to wear, and when I took the snap, the leggings just looked weird.

So I changed. Then when I got to work, I traded the brown jacket for a denim one.

I am desperately in need of a haircut... darn short hair needing a trim every 4 weeks. But as we are getting ready to sell our house, there just isn't time. So I look like, well, I don't know what, for a few more weeks.
