Look of the Day: Stop the Chop

On Saturday I took a break from my Giants gear (it was a travel day for them) and I put on some festival gear instead. I suppose it was a good idea that I lived it up festival style for the day because Sunday morning I woke up with strep throat.

Normally that wouldn't be a big deal but it is the 5th time I have gotten strep since May, and the four other times landed me in the hospital because my strep progressed immediately into pneumonia, and then into an infection in my blood. I think I caught it early enough this time, but looks like my tonsils going to have to come out.

Sunday was spent laying on the couch, popping penicillin and watching sports. I think the Giants knew I needed some cheering up and stole the game from the Braves for me. Today I will have to get my gear back on, it's time to stop the chop!
I dressed like normal person for one day at least.

Forever 21 maxi skirt, Forver21 top, VPL bra, and Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges.
Jewlery from LF stores, forever 21 and from various places I have traveled to.
Stayed tuned I have a big, HUGE, giveaway coming up. Get excited!
