WIWW: October 20-26, 2013

Another week of What I Wore Wednesday!  I’m gonna be honest, this week was the pits.  I don’t know what makes me keep up with something as superficial as fashion diaries even when big scary life stuff is going on, but I guess it has something to do with preserving some sense of normalcy.  So this week doesn’t consist of my best or most favorite outfits, but it’s still a reflection of my real life.. and as we all know, life isn’t always easy.

The Amateur Librarian // What I Wore Wednesday

What I Wore Wednesday is my motivation for wearing the clothes I own, finding new ways to mix and match outfits, and not wearing the same three things all the time! I kept a fashion diary for the entire year of 2012, and now in 2013 I’m adding a bit about my days to go along with the outfit. So these weekly check-ins are a mini journal of my life too!

Not feeling great, but hanging in there.  I was actually looking forward to the work week and getting out of my funk, but it wasn’t meant to be.

Not a great day… stayed home from work to go to the doctor and tried to rest up.  No time for a real fashion diary, but there’s always time for a selfie, right?  Sometimes it just relieves the stress.

Another long day at the doctor, trying to get a handle on what was going on.  Sorry for being so vague, but I’m sure you understand.  Luckily my mother in law dropped everything to fly out Tuesday night, and I was so grateful for her presence.  It’s just so comforting to have someone by your side when you’re not sure what to do.

I tried to go into work, but it didn’t last long.  We ended up at the ER twice in twelve hours.  Quite a numbing day, but at least there was sleep at the end of it.  Thankful for the wonders of modern medicine!

After a long night, I knew I would be useless at work.  I never got around to posting this fashion diary on Instagram, it’s funny how being sick and caregiving takes up so much time, even though you’re not getting anything done.  Finally I felt hopeful that things were looking up.

boots // Anne Klein

Back at work to catch up.  It was honestly a relief to be back at work, like life was finally getting back to normal.  And it’s finally feeling like fall, so I broke out the boots to celebrate.

Last day with Sam’s mother visiting, which was bittersweet.  It was so nice to have someone stay with us while everything was in upheaval.
