In our office, Mondays are probably my favourite day - production day! We put the paper together today and tomorrow morning, so I spend most of the day at my desk designing the paper. While I love going out and reporting, it's nice having a day just in the office, especially since designing the paper is my favourite part. That said, I never slob it on Mondays, no matter how tired I am.
However, this Monday I have to go cover city council (usually I cover County) so I might be a little dressed up than on a normal Monday. (My apologies for the softness of this photo - shooting into a skewed mirror is difficult!)

I'm taking this chance to wear my new skirt! Turns out it's about half an inch too big, something that I hoped would be remedied by a thicker tee and stockings, but not really. After a test run today I may adjust it if I find that it's migrating towards my ankles too much.
I really love this skirt. Aside from its low price tag and rockabilly feel, it's also nicely lined and has pockets. Pockets are a must for me in skirts - especially in the summer - because I carry around a recorder, notebook, cell phone etc. I usually have a bag to toss all that stuff in, but if I'm at an event where I need that stuff on hand right away it's nice not to have to root through my bag to find my recorder. The other dress I bought this weekend also has pockets - score!
especially now that it's getting warmer out. I use hair wax, but I find it makes my hair separate and curl which is great when I want it to do that, but when I want waves it kind of wrecks it.
Anyway, I have work that needs to get done before starting page layout so I better get my butt to work.
