Still under the weather. It’s been a rough week for us, and an excellent way to roll out the end of summer and a new month. It’s a good thing we homeschool because my youngest would have missed this first back to school week since she had a fever on and off.

The rule is something like you can’t send them back until 24 hours of being fever free without the use of meds.

And the coughing, and the over 40°C. It was not a good string of events.

I did manage to get an Edgy Fall Capsule Wardrobe posted last night, even though my brain wasn’t really working that well.

I also enrolled in another few classes starting this month. I think it is important to have as many tools in my styling tool kit as possible even if I am not a huge proponent of fashion styling “rules”.

It’s good information to have and share.

  1. poor Merle, i hope she feels better soon! i swear there’s some sort of late summer bug going around, so many people seem to be poorly as of late. schools around here have been start and stop, between the hurricane closing things down as well as air con systems cutting out, so there’s no other choice but to send the kids home!

    i put that cat sweater in my cart earlier in the week. not sure if you saw it or not, but there’s a cat printed bomber jacket in the girls section that i’m considering, if i can get the largest size to somehow work…i do appreciate they include the garment measurements for each item, not just a general size guide.

    i’m excited to hear about the classes, best of luck for a new semester!

    • We seem to be on the other side of this now but it honestly hung around longer than usual. It was a rough one. I can’t imagine the air cons not working in the heat. It would be brutal. Ours were down in the building for a day and I thought I was going to literally parish.

      I haven’t seen the cat bomber but I’m definitely going to go check. And I totally agree that garment measurements are way better guidance than size guides and reviews. It makes all the difference.

      My first class starts Thursday so I hoping I’m feeling 100% by then. Thanks!
