color clash | texture tango

summer will end in a mere 2 weeks and i’ve only been to the beach once. such a waste of summer, don’t you think? with summer coming to an end and with new trends on their way to knock on our style-hungry hearts, i had to try the biggest trend this season — color blocking. you didn’t think my feeble attempt at it last month was it, did you?Ā 
so i pulled out the brightest skirt i have — this bright blueish / periwinkle electropleated skirt that i thrifted months ago and looked for another bright colored item to pair with it. deep in the knitted and crocheted section of my closet, i found this green kimono type blouse that i was thankful i didn’t give away. voila! color blocking.

anyway, physical therapy to correct my spinal disc bulges are going well. i was skeptical at first because the first two sessions caused me terrible headaches but as i progressed (i’m on my 6th session), the pain eased bit by bit and i stopped taking my depression-inducing neuropathic meds. my life is almost back to normal. by next week, i wish to take Zumba classes again. for now, i’ll just concentrate on not only with the therapy sessions but waking up early enough not to be late for work. *wink*
ps. thank you for the well wishes you guys sent on my last post. your sweet comments definitely helped me through this ordeal.Ā
