got the blues

Aug092010_0049
I’ve been such a sad sack this week, but I suppose with good reason. Earlier in the week I got into another fender bender on my way to a work event. I’m close to giving up on driving completely. I can’t be trusted behind the wheel of a car. Argh. If I only knew this particular mock election undesired “win” would foreshadow my future so:

(ps that’s my sweet ’87 buick lesabre)

I really liked how these photos came out. I wore this to work earlier this week and since it was raining, I grabbed a jacket so a few of my photos are with the jacket layered on. You might be thinking “Andrea, wtf it’s summer.” I know this, but I get all itchy when rain touches me and I’ve lost both of my umbrellas. So the next best thing was a jacket. I’m that fool you see running in heels with a jacket over my head to seek shelter from light drops of rain. I miss layering so much. I can’t wait for summer to be over with. I’m over it!

    Oh no, I'm sorry about your fender bender! Car stuff is such a pain; I'm constantly thinking I should just sell mine and start taking public transit everywhere. (Or borrow the bf's Prius.)

    I love your blouse; the zipper in the back is so cool!

    Love the outfit! Rain in summer is surprisingly cold on bare skin, I currently have 3 umbrellas in my car 'just in case';
    And I'm secretly over summer too.

    You should move to NYC, then you;ll never have to drive! I like this outfit, the blue is great on you. Also love how the zippers line up in the back – it's weird but details like that really cement an outfit for me sometimes.

    I love this outfit. I really need to get some shirts, or dresses or something with an exposed zipper like that.

    P.S. I totally feel your pain about the car stuff. I want to give up driving too!
