Rain and waiting

I’ve been counting down the days, hours, minutes, seconds to when my senior comes back in the office and takes back his disaster of an account…. I’m very much at the end of my tether here. However, there’s a lot of chatter about how I’m going to be helping out with many more accounts. I’m ok with that, but I’m in no way ready to be the point person for the elephant in the company that is this monster account. I’ve been given so many NEED THIS NOW lists I’m starting to not GAF and say to the client: PICK ONE DAMNIT! I CAN’T DO THEM ALL!

Monday: Everlane top, YY pants, Eileen Fisher shoes.

Monday

After washing and ironing All The Things this weekend I was glad to put on my old fave YY pants again. No matter what I reach for these whenever possible.

Tuesday: YY top, Rachel Comey Menace Pants, Frye shoes.

My shoes are a little darker now they’ve been properly cleaned, conditioned and polished. They are still pretty beat up, but they look much better than they used to. They are also the most comfortable shoes I have right now and they don’t aggravate my ankle so I reach for them often.

Wednesday: Knock Knock Linen top, new Y’s pants, Frye shoes.

I’ve bought yet another pair of pants from Yohji Yamamoto. These went on sale at Totokaelo and I had a discount I could throw on top of it so they were less than $200, which is a steal for new YY items. They are lightweight wool and extremely comfortable – like PJs comfortable. I didn’t realize they had a drawstring, but I’m glad they do because otherwise they’d be big in a similar way to the Pas de Calais linen pants. I don’t mind the hip hugging aspect of them, but I like that I can cinch them up more with the drawstring. The low hanging back pockets are fab and the wool is perfect for wearing out in warm weather but give the perfect amount of cover needed for the blasting AC in the office. These are runner up for second favorite pair of pants. I wore them last night when I went out for last minute groceries and found myself lounging about in them when I got home. Z also commented on how “cute” they look and said the back pocket placement definitely gives the pants a good look.

I’ve been so busy this week I’ve started having bad dreams about losing POs or not knowing how to do something in our computer system. I tend to have more dreams like this when the stress gets really bad. Luckily – hopefully – this will be the last week of it for a while.

  1. That first photo, with the cat peeking through the stair railing, is great! (I love when cats make appearances in people’s outfit photos, haha.)

    Hopefully things get calmer at work soon. We’re also a client-driven industry, and it gets stressful, yikes. As a fairly junior attorney, I’m still somewhat insulated from needing to react to the whims of the client (or the big stresses that come from the court or other unexpected developments), and I’m in awe of more senior people who are good at the business side of things and interacting with clients!
