I don’t know what the deal is with rainy weather…it makes me so tired!  I had zero desire to work today, but I got to read exactly four posts before my day got crazy busy!  Fortunately, I was uncharacteristically proactive about packing breakfast and lunch last night, AND I pre-chopped the onions and jalapenos and mixed the spice rub for the shredded beef tacos I’m making in the crockpot, too.  This morning, prep took five minutes and I just got home to an amazing-smelling house!  And…as you can see…I’m EXTRA prepared with salsa for the tacos! That salsa is SO good, and they haven’t had it the last two times I went to Trader Joe’s.  So, I felt it necessary to stock up!  The guy at the checkout was like, “Wow…somebody really likes salsa.” Lol

I just don’t have it in me to go to the gym tonight.  I’m currently summoning the motivation to either go out for a rainy 65 degree run (LOVELY running conditions!) or do a yoga video.  I saw a super unflattering picture of myself from this weekend’s work event on Sunday.  I’m STILL trying to talk myself down about it (it keeps popping up on our work social media…UGH).  I was standing at an angle and wearing a rather flowy shirt, but for whatever reason, no amount of logical reasoning with myself has made me feel better and it’s been two days.  That nasty negative self-talk is such shit. :/

On a brighter note, I was looking for a couple of new maxi dresses for work for the warmer months and I ordered this one (in charcoal) from Amazon.  I don’t order a ton of clothes online but I took a chance on this one because it’s nice, cheap, and plain. Plus, I already have a belt that works with it (I’m wearing it in that picture).  I’m totally happy with the fit and the material. I’m 5′9 and it falls to the perfect length, too!  I ordered a second one in olive.  Yay!  I am not a fashionable person at all.  I love that maxi dresses are a complete outfit all on their own with minimal effort, and if they’re plain, I can match them to any number of shoes or sweaters.  I live in TX, so basically 99% of my wardrobe is sleeveless and I own a bunch of sweaters! Ha!

Summary: Draco certainly never intended to be a style consultant for the seriously fashion challenged, but after the war and the reparations his family had to pay, it was clear he would need to earn a living. However, if having to earn a living meant he got to admire Potter’s arse and shoulders in well-fitted clothes, it wasn’t that bad. Or was it?

This is a delightful story, in which, yes, Draco is a style consultant and Harry is his most important client. But the thing is, Draco is both incredibly snarky and grumpy, and completely smitten with Harry (he actually talks to Harry’s photos in the Prophet!), which is just brilliant when it comes to actually dealing with Harry as often as he does. And it is often because apparently Harry needs new outfits all the time. ^^

Harry is super charming here, too! And I swear, the whole story is a darling. Will leave you with a big smile on your face, promise! :D
