Can you tell I have dry socket here? No?!?! Good! (And if the answer wasn’t “no,” just don’t tell me, aight?) Cause I suuuuure did have it. And I stiiiillll do. And it’s reaaaally painful. Can you tell I’m on T-3’s right now to cope with the pain too, by the way? Cause I am.
As you can tell, I’m not exactly functioning at normal levels this past little while – oddly enough though, this hiccup in normal programming has actually been kind of a blessing in disguise. Yes, excruciating pain (I’m not over exaggerating, Google it) is not what I would normally voluntarily order up in life, but having to just sit at home and rest and think and ponder and play guitar and watch movies etc, etc has been a really valuable retreat from my ordinarily busy life. It’s so easy to get stuck in our routines and keep trucking along day-to-day…sometimes even if there’s a less-than-amazing disruption, it helps to reboot everything and get you back on track.
So while I’m recovering, I’m just going to keep it simple and stick to easy looks like this one. No point in disrupting this completely calm, codine-induced vibe I have going on lately with styling dilemmas. The ultimate skinny jeans (by James Jeans, my faves as always), a chambray top and a clean-lined blazer…can’t go wrong with that classic combo, even through a fog of post-dentist pain and heavyweight Tylenol.
And in the meantime, send some get-better vibes my way if you can spare them – hoping to be feeling human again by this weekend!

    Oh yuck, that really sounds awful. I actually can't believe you look this good while you deal with that! I'd be in sweats, and probably not presentable at all…but I'm sure looking put together helps you feel even just a tiny bit better.

    I totally know about the dental surgery thing, dear Alex!! I had four wisdom teeth removed, bone grafts in my jaw, AND gum grafts…all in one "go" a few years ago; definitely not fun!! Good luck with the recovery!! (P.S. Loving those booties!!)

    Oh no, sorry to hear you've developed dry socket! I commend you for actually getting dressed and going out to take outfit photos, I certainly couldn't do it after I had my wisdom teeth pulled. Sending get well vibes your way!

    I do consider all of the ideas you’ve introduced in your post.
    They’re really convincing and can definitely work. Still,
    the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please
    lengthen them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and video
    clips, this site could certainly be one of the greatest
    in its niche. Superb blog!

    Hi there, I do think your website could be having web browser compatibility issues.

    Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it
    looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.

    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Other than that, excellent website!
