AJ Wears :: A trench and a dress

I spent my day primarily in meetings today, prepping for a large conference our company is throwing in a few weeks.  Since I work remotely, I don't really NEED to get dressed most days, but when I'm going to be on webcam in a meeting, I at least make an effort to throw on a nice top and sprunch my hair a bit (yes, sprunch). I may have gone a bit overboard by putting on a dress today, but I've been dreaming of a dress + trench combo for a few days.

The verdict, however, is that it's FAR too warm for a trench, even a light one with three-quarter length sleeves. I ditched it shortly after stepping outside. I think I might have been intended for milder temps. I love shorts and a tee as much as the next girl, but I look good in layers. It's going to be a long summer. PS - Please excuse the bruises. I fell out of a canoe this weekend.


Edited to add :: I wrote this post Monday afternoon, after watching tornado coverage all afternoon. My heart and prayers are with everyone in Moore and anyone affected by this storm. It hits close to home, because living in the path of tornadoes is something you never get used to but always have to be prepared for. I texted my sister this afternoon after I heard about the tornado on the way to make sure she was okay and aware. She was at the mall (are we sisters or what?) and assured me that she would be fine as long as it didn't take a weird turn north. It feels odd and clunky to address something that has my heart so heavy when all I really do is take pictures of what I'm wearing every day, but it didn't feel right to blindly ignore it either. I may edit this post a million more times throughout the day, but the sentiment is the same - I'm thinking about you.

Now it looks like we could get some weather today in Arkansas, so if you need me, I'll be in my closet. In flats. Stay safe, you guys.
