keys and locks

Slacking.

Yes, I have neglected my blog lately. And my web site. And my appearance. And, well, pretty much everything. The combination of changing seasons and a particularly grueling patch at work has left me  listless and disinterested in most things that would normally captivate me. All I want to do is curl up on the couch and read. I’m trying to come up with a way to snap out of it, but so far–nothing. I may do some sort of 30-day wardrobe challenge, not allowing myself to wear the same thing twice. I haven’t decided yet.

Tomorrow I’m heading to a workshop in Boston on developing marketing content for all stages of the buying cycle. While that probably sounds incredibly boring to lots of people, I’m hoping that it gives me some insight that will get me fired up about writing again. And I do have a good outfit picked out: a few weeks ago, I hosted a CAbi trunk show and got this great top:

I love old keys and padlocks, and I’m trying to wear more blouses, so this was a perfect piece. I have several pairs of pants that will work well with it, in addition to my favorite gray pencil skirt. I recently read a very good biography of Harry Houdini–this top makes me think of him. (And yes, I do plan to iron it before wearing tomorrow.)

I also got some good things at a clothing swap a few weeks ago, so I’ll look for some inspiration there. Today I’ll try a black jacket with red piping that PERFECTLY matches my Heartbreaker Vogue pencil skirt. In the meantime, I will keep fighting to break out of my fall torpor. Wish me luck. Anyone else going through this?
