I have a bit of advice for you that you should definitely listen to. If ever you go to Lowes and buy deer repellent for plants and somehow during the journey home said bottle of repellent leaks into the plastic bag, I urge you to proceed with caution. I wouldn’t advise sitting the plastic bag on your desk or removing the bottle with your bare hands. The smell is foul and lingering. You’ll regret it for days. Even after four showers, you’ll still feel as though you smell like cow manure.
I have a strong sense of smell. And certain smells make me nauseous. It was one of the first and largest indicators that I was about to be deathly sick during my recent food poisoning/stomach flu episode. We were sitting in a bar in Austin when the table next to us ordered some beefy, hearty pot roast. The aroma didn’t bother anyone else but I couldn’t sprint to the bathroom fast enough. It was disgusting and even still, if I should ever run into that smell again, I’m certain my reaction will be the same.
So now that you’re probably pinching your nose because you’ve tricked yourself into thinking you can whiff deer piss through the computer screen, let’s talk about pleasant smells. Like the new air fresheners that are released for the Fall. Or cinnamon apple cider. Or smokey bonfires. Kids, I am so ready for my favorite season to be here. In fact, I may have rushed it a bit with my denim outfit choice considering it was 90 degrees outside while taking these pictures.
This week’s fashion post was back-to-school inspired and is brought to you by a few of favorite stores. There was a time in my life where I would never consider mixing denims. Of course, there was also a time in my life when I wore an all-pleather purple suit. Thank goodness things change. I hope you each have an incredible Labor Day weekend and send summer off in style. Rumor has it that you can now get your hands on a PSL. That’s a Pumpkin Spice Latte for those of you not clued into the cool kids lingo. Happy Weekend!
