What I Wore: Plaid Hooded

This is what I wore yesterday. It’s maybe a little on the kooky side, but it’s comfy and I ended up loving it. Bonus is that every single clothing item here was bought at a super sale price. The dress is a nice light t-shirt like material, and the tights are heavier, so it all evens out and worked both for the 50-degree morning and the 80-degree afternoon. I think the dress is a tad too short for me to wear comfortably without tights, but since tights are the order of the day this time of year it’s not a problem. ๐Ÿ˜€

I am having to be quiet around the house again today, as Ian is sleeping after night shift. I wish his work hadn’t switched him up like that this week of all weeks, because it’s kind of throwing a wrench in being able to do pre-guest chores around the house. But he has Thursday off and has pledged his house-cleaning support so I guess we’ll just do most of it then. I can de-clutter and do some laundry in the meantime, I guess.

I hope my family likes the gifts I sent. It’ll be weird not being there when they open them. And we’ve all done the ‘oh yeah, I loved it!’ fakeness over the phone, so that’s not a reliable gauge. ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh well. I think I did pretty good. Ian’s family, on the other hand, I have no idea if I picked out good things or not. And they’ll be here, so I’ll get the unvarnished reaction. Fingers crossed, haha.

How’s your week going? Do you over-worry about people liking your gifts, too?
