Hello blog! I haven’t forgotten about you. I’ve just been doing a lot of gaming which doesn’t lend to many interesting topics to write about, besides how salty I get at times. Otherwise, life’s good!
So summer’s here. We live in a very old building with no centralized A/C. Last year was very uncomfortable round this time, but we finally purchased a room unit, and it was so worth it. Our small apartment gets really hot whenever we run games because our computers heat up fast. I swear it gets up to a hundred degrees in our bedroom. I’m so happy we can play comfortably now.
Although it’s still too uncomfortable for much else. I wish I could sport cute some hairstyles but it’s just too hot right now. I’ve been in a perpetual sock bun. I don’t have a lot of volume so sock buns make a huge difference when I put my hair up!
92 in May
This was taken weeks ago when it was still May (welp) and it was already 92°F (33°C). Some nice winds but over all very humid and sticky. On the bright side, I finally got to wear this vintage skirt I purchased from Depop! The fabric feels great and it come with a slip sewn in. I paid $12 for it. What a steal! I can’t help but feel like they don’t make clothes like they used to. I wonder how much this skirt was at its time.
Ballet flats aren’t trendy anymore, but I really like this green pair. I put it on when I’m feeling lazy with my polka dot jeans and a cute blouse. It looks so much more put together than just regular jeans and a t-shirt.

Another Old Favorite
Here’s a dress I’ve owned for many, many years. I bought it from a very sweet lady at a small boutique in Vegas. I don’t wear it very much because it’s special to me. I was a broke college student who didn’t have a full wardrobe, so I liked to save this dress for occasions, but I now realize that’s silly because I end up donning it very rarely. I’ve resolved to start wearing it more, especially when I have better special occasion dresses now!
I paired my dress with one of my favorite flats. They’re so comfortable and I can walk on these for miles. I almost never wear heels anymore because I simply don’t find them practical. As a result, my collection of cute but comfortable shoes have grown. I only have heels for formal events now. I don’t think chucking heels have hurt my style at all, and I’m pretty happy with wear I am now, and so are my feet!
Fun fact: I’m wearing fashion tape on my sleeves. They elastics have become a little loose since this dress is pretty old. Had to slap tape on my shoulders, and it works marvelously. No worries about sleeves or my bra straps slipping!
