Monday: Rosen top, Rachel Comey Menace Pant, Frye shoes.
The stress of dealing with the new client account drained me so much I slept until almost 11 am Saturday. I was shocked I slept in that much, but I clearly needed it. Already this week I know I’m going to drop dead again this weekend. Sunday I was still exhausted and barely did anything. It wasn’t until I got home Monday that I realized I wore these same pants on Friday to work. They really are becoming workhorse pants for me. They are very comfortable and easy to coordinate.
Tuesday: Yesstyle linen top, YY linen skirt, Jil Sander shoes.
This is the weird Yohji Yamamoto skirt that I wore as a dress a couple weeks ago – worn as a skirt here. I just folded over the extra material, tied it with the ties on the skirt, but also safety pinned it… just in case. I didn’t think I would end up wearing this skirt as a skirt, but I’m glad I did today. It’s so soupy outside it’s hard to breathe, but I still like to go out for walks near the office when I have the time. I tend to go out a couple times a day to a parking lot surrounded by trees just up the hill from the office. It helps me clear my head and today I definitely needed it after the reports I was working on and then the client call. Even though it was 90F with over 80% humidity I was perfectly comfortable on my walk with this skirt. I also love that it’s lined most of the way down. Due to the weird way the tie works on the skirt I side-tucked my shirt, which I am definitely a fan of doing again. It’s left out on the side where the ties are sewn into the skirt, but I tucked in my shirt just under the fold over of the fabric and where I tied the ties. If I’d thought about it – I could’ve taken a better detail photo. The fold over does leave a bulge, but it doesn’t bother me at all.
I don’t have much to say and am drained already. It’s only Tuesday! Granted, I did run 2 miles on the treadmill when I got home. I would’ve run outside, but a massive thunderstorm nixed that option. I am glad I ran no matter what. I needed the stress release.
