Happy Wednesday, friends!
I’m currently sipping on my current favorite tea (from DAVIDsTea, yes it’s one of their holiday flavors that I stocked up on big time and it’s on sale right now! I may need to go get more…) I’ve found myself drinking way too much coffee lately, so I’m trying to cut back by switching in some more tea. Trust me, I love coffee.. but it’s been messing with my sleep and is sometimes troublesome with my migraines. I typically try to limit it to 1-2 cups a day, but my night classes are HARD with my grandma-ish tendencies of going to bed EARLY. I’ve been on an earl grey kick lately, too.
Anyway, how’s life? I’ve missed talking to y’all. I recently wrapped up some freelance work I’d been doing as well as my Whole30. I *somewhat* made it through Whole30. I caved and went to the bar on Day 28 but pretty much maintained the food through it all. I’ve thought about doing a post dedicated to just Whole30 — what I ate, how I felt, weight loss, how I’m continuing some of the habits. Would y’all be interested in hearing about it? If not, totes cool. I think my friends are so over hearing me tell them I can’t drink/eat because of it. It was overall a positive experience, though, and I’d be happy to share.
I actually shot these photos the same day I shot these pics but haven’t gotten around to writing this post. J and I had a tea date in West Loop and couldn’t resist snapping some photos in front of this fun graffiti wall. This coat is one of favorite winter buys. I’m obsessed with its masculinity for some reason. It’s kind of baggy but ties at the waist so it still shows my figure. I got it from Uniqlo on sale for I think around $70 but unfortunately it’s not available anymore. 🙁 This look is super easy to replicate though.
Ignore the wrinkles. And my facial expressions pretty much in every photo in this post. hahaha I was NOT in the mood to take photos this day apparently. Still wanted to share them with y’all though, cause, ya know.. life is nowhere near perfect.
