Outfit army

This week has been rough and it's only Tuesday. It all started Sunday night when my stomach decided it didn't like food anymore. For the past 48 hours I've lived off saltines, plain oatmeal and water. Any time I've tried eating anything else my stomach started flipping tables: NOPE! Yesterday I was so drained I…

Hot weather = lethargy

It would seem I've been wearing my linen pants a lot lately. That makes sense since it's been getting oppressively hot out. I'm also getting to the None Fucks Given mode of dressing due to the heat as well. I'm not the only one though. Lots of people are getting much more casual and wearing…

Burnt out or….

This past week I had another whirlwind conference outing. I wasn't there for the whole event, but getting up at 4:30 am for a 48 hour marathon of flights, booth assembly, several mini-client meetings, a huge dinner event and then another huge lunch event were quite enough to knock me out. When I got back…

I hate wait

I'm in a bit of denial that it's only Wednesday. Monday I had a 12+ hour day with visiting clients. Tuesday I was exhausted and insanely busy. Today has also been busy, but I'm starting to see the lull headed this way: summer. Random things: This weekend I'm having linen pants altered by a friend.…

Foot in mouth

Remember how many months ago when I lamented I was over jeans? For anyone who has read this blog long enough, please commence with the eye-rolling now. Just like any other fickle human, I go back and forth on what I like and don't like to wear. I've now got it in my head that…

Crazy plant lady

I have become that person with all the trendy house plants. Guilty as charged. I repotted the creeping vine from the wee fox planter because it was growing like crazy and I was afraid it would be root bound. These two new leaves have grown on my ficus since I bought it. This makes me…

Breaking constraints

I've been wearing a lot of lighter colors lately. I also decided to quit the shopping ban. I don't necessarily feel like a "failure" per se, but there is some disappointment. Many years ago (near ten now yikes), when I literally didn't shop for clothing at all for 5  years straight I was in a…

All the neutrals

I wore my linen pants two days in a row. Not that it's anything revolutionary. I used to wear the same pair of jeans all week long. I pulled the cotton/linen kimono-cardigan-robe-thingie out of the guest room closet and finally decided to wear it. I don't think I've worn it in over a year and…

Excuse the crazy moment

I had a strange moment of insanity today while driving home from work. What if I sold all of the designer clothes I've not really been wearing and only bought a few more pairs of these Uniqlo pants in different colors and some basic button downs and never bought anything again? I'm not entirely certain…

Ban fail and cat pee

This is a post-work casual look. I've been lazy about exercising due to constant back issues. I'm working on improving my posture when I'm sitting and using my standing desk station more at work as well as taking more frequent walk breaks. I've got another new rug for the study, as you can see. Our…
