I did a post like this a while back and considered making it a series. Still not really going to call it a series...but I'm going with it for the second installment.
That we all still hate Brock Turner.
You know how some things are a flash in the pan and then they're gone? Well, I'm glad that the outrage about Brock Turner is still there. I know he was just released from prison (after serving half of his pitiful six month sentence because of "good behavior") but I hope this outrage is here for good. We gotta make some changes. And here are just a few examples of women I 100% agree with on the subject:
This article that Michael's cousin shared on Facebook. It's long, but it had me nodding (and shaking) my head in a fit of rage. Our country is allowing crimes against humanity and us women are the victims of it.
Audrey and I agree on everything. Like this! Again...the system in place in this country is designed for men by men. All the feminist rights movements have gotten us the right to vote and wear pants...but not the right to not be raped or for our rapists to actually be punished.
At least this verdict (that Erin also brought to my attention in this post) is more respectable. Why can't Brock be in prison for 15 years?
HateBrock Turner. Rapists. Rape culture.
Okay, let's move things away from the dark side, shall we?
Remember the top from my last Friday post that lots of you loved but wasn't online? Well, I found it online!
I was also going to do a "what I wore" post, inspired by Jess, but I decided I'd just leave those here. It seems less scary than devoting one post to them. (Note: I'm not a fashion blogger. I have an iPhone and a mirror to work with...not a DSLR or DLSR or whatever the heck they're called and a pro photographer and editing software.)

Stripes and neutrals are my jam. I forgot to take a picture at home before work and on lunch...so this half-shot in the office bathroom had to do. I was wearing dark jeans and cognac booties.
Thursday, September 8th
More neutrals minus my top--which is one of like only two colors that I wear semi-often. (I gravitate towards peach/rust colors and burgundy, if not neutrals.) And I am sooo happy I got this color jacket instead of the olive!

Mission WEAR ALL THE NEW TOPS: Success. I wore this plaid shirt on Tuesday for the first time too. The Friday before, I wore this top for the first time. Monday will probably have to incorporate this one to keep the streak alive...then I'll be done wearing new tops. I think. And guess what? I only forgot to take the tags off two times out of five! Woo! *insert see-no-evil monkey here* Also, I kind of wanted to hold out and wear this top for the first time with my camo skinnies...but I'm weak. Also also: high of 82 = sandals instead of booties. Even though it was a high of 82 the day before. I wore the same jacket as Thursday's outfit over the top.
In un-clothing-related news, I'm on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in my first ever reread of the series since I read books one through four when they were released (or a couple years after). I had the first five books, started book five twice and got about halfway through each time before giving up. This time I am going to read all seven! It amazes me how much of these things I remember too. And yes, I've seen all the movies, but most of them I've seen all the way through only once, minus the first one, because I owned it. But it had been yeeears since I watched any of the movies!
