On the thread for her tee and tulle outfit, Angie challenged me to wear a similar outfit. This first one is what I came up with. I think the David Bowie tee is less of a juxtaposition with the tulles than her Subpop tee, but any grunge tees I have are souvenirs of my teen days and in storage (won’t fit now anyway).

I don’t wear pearls. My husband did give me one necklace with a seed pearl pendant that I like. Otherwise, these black pearls are all I have. My grandmother got them when visiting my uncle in Alaska in the 80’s, so they’re kind of an heirloom.

I’ve thrown in two more outfits - pics were taken in my building lobby, so have a mask on in both. The dress wasn’t worn for going outside, just getting mail.

Things are about the same here except that the curve is finally flattening. Everyone I know is still well in terms of COVID, but I know people who are really struggling right now for other reasons.

I am thinking about the stuff I will miss this year. (While realizing I am extremely fortunate compared to most people.) Family events as well as trips. I mostly feel very lucky but it’s hard not to be down about that stuff sometimes, even though I mostly have a pretty easy time staying home right now. ETA For example, my nephew came today, 3.5 weeks early but healthy!
