You know that your weekend is going to be awesome when you start Friday morning off by meandering into a wasps' nest and only getting 8 stings. Hey, when I saw size of the nest after the whole incident, I was really glad I only got 8! That said, wasps suck. I never saw it coming and they swarmed my face and arms and I ran out of the bushes screaming bloody murder. I like to think I'm pretty tough about crying (well, I'm an emotional wimp but I'm pretty good with pain...), but I bawled like a baby because it hurt so bad. AND I said a lot of bad words... very loudly. I thought I wouldn't have outfit pictures cause those suckers got me under and over my right eye but Benadryll works wonders and I looked normal enough to go out last night... It's weird though, yesterday I looked normal but today, even though I'm still taking Benadryll, I'm very itchy and swollen. My right eye is an unusual shape. Lovely.
Anyways, I survived and I even have an outfit post. I got this shirt two years ago and I've worn it .5 times (just one evening). I had some issues with the shape and I was convinced that the neckline made my butt look fat. Pretty sure that makes no sense... But I finally put it on again yesterday and fell back in love with the light chiffon, the odd coloured plaid and the ruffles. I think it deserves to be back in regular rotation. Sometimes it takes a while to fall in love...
