Quick trip to the Big City, with one overnight. Tried to dress for the heat, but also the possibility of a cool morning or night, and air conditioning. The button down was breezy and a good choice, as was the sleeveless lace top. The jeans were hot when the temps soared and the city experienced an 8 hour power outage after a construction crane took out power lines! Fortunately, the power outage was after DS#2 wrote a 3 hour test (the reason for the trip), but the black-out lasted 8 hours!

Whilst DS was writing, I spent 2 hours with a bra fitter. The fitter identified the bra I was wearing (and that it was discontinued) and the size (too large - I’ve lost weight since it’s purchase before the pandemic) on sight, took some measurements, had me try on her ‘fitting bra’, and then started making recommendations. I left with two lovely Wacoal bras - one nude for me, and one black - two different, if similar styles. If I still love them in a couple of weeks, I’ll stock up.

Did some people watching and window shopping. Discerned a couple of ‘looks’ on repeat. #1 high waisted shorter shorts (4 in inseam?) with cropped tops and sneakers (high top Converse) or Birk style sandals or slides. #2 Full, puffed sleeve dresses, but sleeves styled with less ‘puff’ than seen in editorial photos. #3 Very wide cropped pants that look more like skirts and simple loose woven tops with short sleeves or sleeveless. #4 Cropped slim leg pants or jeans with white long sleeved button down worn untucked, sleeves pushed up. #5 biking shorts or leggings, body con top, sometimes a black blazer style jacket, baseball hat, dad sneakers - black and white. Also, messy buns at the back of head have been replaced by messy buns on the top of the head. I didn’t get much sense of colour (lots of white, cream, denim, black) except for the full dresses, and the store display windows and mannequins weren’t much different.

DS made a comment about all the socks and sandals (males and females) and the absence of high heels!

Thanks for looking/reading!
