I was going for a "polished casual" or smart casual as they say in England. It's what happens when I read a book about Kate Middleton's Style. (Kate Style: A Chic and Classic Look by Alisande Healy Orme)
I wanted to try something a little more colorful and frankly has a bit of my preppy roots. My dad's from Louisiana and is very preppy. He even has a collection of pastel polo shirts! I promise I will never wear a pastel polo shirt.
But if you look closely I still got a bit of something different with my skull earrings. Gotta keep the look still fun and me. I like wearing outfits that are girly and classic and then sneaking in a bit of something different.

On to the Health Update (or why I've been gone for so long again.)
Most of you may already know that I have Fibromyalgia that was diagnosed three years ago. Which is if you don't know wide-spread chronic pain caused by the pain receptors in your brain and nerves being overly sensitive. Well it had been quite a bit better in terms of pain and my mobility for awhile. So I pushed it a bit too far and suddenly it got way worse. The pinched nerve in my hip didn't agree with my attempt at a ballet class from school, then my fingers and toes swelled up in the heat wave and it was very painful. Which was when I began to notice most of my joints were achey.
Luckily my doctor actually got me an appointment with a rheumatologist who after some poking and prodding at all of my tender spots suggested an anti-depressant which can also help with nerve pain. Which has helped enormously. So yay for that. I still am waiting on a few test results but I'm very glad to have a clear treatment plan this time. Clearly in the three years since I've been diagnosed Fibro is finally being taken seriously by doctors. As always when I'm not posting here I am on usually on tumblr, twitter, pinterest and instagram (links below). Sorry I've been gone so long and that's all for now.
