Auuuuugggghhh

You know that sound Charlie Brown makes, when he tries to kick the football and Lucy steals it away at the last second? He lets out a yell and you can tell it's a mixture of frustration at what happened, but also knowing it was going to happen anyway? That's been my week thus far.... Continue Reading →

Eat the stuff

It's incredibly nice outside today - 56F - so of course Z and I had to take out the Mustang. We drove to a little tourist trap of a town about 30 minutes away from our house. It's a very cute little town, but parking is nigh impossible to find after a certain time (there... Continue Reading →

Stress

This has been a week. Wednesday was my 3 month review with my boss and we officially discussed my changing roles. Basically, his department is severely understaffed and he's been nudging me (ok, more like throwing me in the deep end of a pool, which he finally admit to) to move into it as customer...

Car & still making an effort

So let's get this out of the way. New car. There it is. It has 4 exhaust levels, meaning you can adjust how loud it is. Z usually keeps it in quiet mode while in the neighborhood because no one likes that neighbor with the obnoxiously loud car. It also has heated and cooled seats,... Continue Reading →

Sweater secret

This is my Limi Feu sweater and it has a secret. When I got it, there was a hole in it. The hole is on the back of the sweater and it was small. It wasn't in the listing when the seller posted it (it's from a discounter site in Japan), but when I got... Continue Reading →

Friyay

Everlane sweater, Rachel Comey Lure pant, gifted scarf (I think it's from Gap). The first half of the day I was cold and wore my enormous scarf around my neck. After lunch I finally took it off. I also have on a tee underneath the sweater for added warmth. Here is the tee I was... Continue Reading →

Simple and fit

J Crew sweater, Grana jeans. I'm not sure what the dark smudge is in the upper right part of the photo. I hope it's not something wrong with the camera. Today was one of those throw-on-whatever kinds of days. A simple outfit, sweater and jeans. A coworker stopped me today and after complimenting my sweater... Continue Reading →

Evolution of a Want

Shirt from Yesstyle, jacket by Journal Standard, Uniqlo pants. It only dawned on me just now that I wore two linen items today. Both the shirt and jacket are linen - of very different kinds. The shirt is knit in a jersey way and it's very lightweight. On the other hand, the Journal Standard jacket... Continue Reading →

Failed test

Monday: Yohji shirt, company vest, Everlane pants. I'm sure many can relate to this: A new idea comes to mind and there's lots of excitement to make it happen, but when the reality of it comes to fruition the results being a disappointment feel like an understatement. First of all, I'm not sure what to... Continue Reading →
