WIW: While waiting for the dryer repair guy

Thought you'd get a kick out of this since you usually see me dressed for work.

I'm off today as a dryer repair guy is coming to the house to see if they can fix my dryer before we spend money on a new one. I just got out of bed about 30 minutes ago and am drinking my first cup of coffee. I've had a shower but haven't styled my hair and have no make up on.

I'm wearing my Gap BF jeans (my favourite "house pants"), an ancient Kelly green Gap polo style tee, and my favourite grey bamboo socks. I have eczema on my legs from time to time and have found bamboo fabric socks to be my best friend - no itching or irritation.

Yep...this is lazy, sloppy Shannon for your viewing pleasure and a hopefully, a chuckle.

Happy Friday all!

    Lazy and sloppy still looks pretty darn stylish on you, Shannon! Love those jeans, and kelly green really suits you.

    Ha! Yay for lazy sloppy Shannon! That's the way to do it. Hope you get your dryer fixed:)

    Lol! I like the at-home Shannon look. FWIW, my dryer went out too. I was told that my dryer vent ducting was somewhat obstructed and it caused my dryer to overheat and blow out the dryer sensor. I always clean the lint screen and thought that was sufficient but I guess ducting needs to be cleaned (annually) as well. Who knew?

    I really really dislike dryers with computers--- computers just die so easily! We've gone through several, and in our area the computer replacement costs more than the dryer.

    I like this look on you. Your hair looks great, even unstyled-- I wish my hair would do "the shannon" straight out of the shower! If so we'd be hair twins. I hate styling hair, hate product, hate tying it back, but can't stand it in my eyes. Unfortunately, to eliminate 3 and 4, I have the hair texture that requires 1 and 2.

    I like the old polo with the BFs--- I was laughing because that is exactly how men wear their jeans, but you still look feminine and cute! I really wish I could find BFs long enough to wear unrolled like yours, as I had a pair in 2005-2006 that I wore tirelessly.

    Interesting about the bamboo socks.

    Looking good ! lol

    Even on a lazy day at home you still have the semi tuck going on and look relaxed and stylish.

    I'm not very mechanically inclined, but once got so frustrated with our dryer that I took it apart and fixed it on my own (with the help of google, of course). It just needed a new belt which is pretty easy to do.

    Very stylish even on your day off, Shannon! That shade of green is so pretty on you.

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    Lovesit! But your sloppy is not the same as my Earth-sloppy...

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    You are adorable.

    And I am in my PAJAMAS if you can believe it!

    No dryer guy coming here and I am feeling so lazy today.

    You look great, casual and relaxed. And green is lovely with your colouring. I'm still in my pilates gear, lol!

    So cute! Love your mug (sorry couldn't resist).

  • Ingunn replied 7 years ago

    You are a sunbeam (I would call you that if you were Norwegian). I adore your stay at home-look, too, coffee and all!

  • biscuitsmom replied 7 years ago

    And still stunning! Quite appropriate too! Sigh.....

  • O replied 7 years ago

    Great, great photo!!

  • moira replied 7 years ago

    You look so dang cute.
    I have had eczema on my elbows and everything I would put on it just aggravated it even more.
    I found this stuff, Honey Bee Pine Tar Salve, at a local health food grocery and have been thrilled with the results.

    I checked the website and there is no contact info, but maybe you could find something similar?

    Lazy, sloppy but still looking good.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Thanks for indulging me today ladies! The best part about today? The dryer is FIXED and at significantly less than I thought - whoo hoo!!!

    Caro - love the pun!

    Moira - thanks for the tip on the salve. I'll have to do some checking on that. I've actually been using The Body Shop's Hemp Body Butter and that seems to be helping quite a bit.
