Oddly coincidental

I've had to ask myself the big questions lately: With regards to the one seemingly necessary women's accessory - the handbag - am I one of those fancy tote-carrying types or do I prefer to be as casual as possible? For the past month I've been on the hunt for a new handbag. The only…

When his become mine

Z admits he's a hoarder. He's not reality TV show bad, but there have been many times when we've been looking for something and come across items that he received as gifts or bought that are still in their original packaging and he goes, "Oh yeah...." We clash quite a bit on whether or not…

Cool weather formula

I've fallen into a safe uniform formula for the cooler weather lately. A lightweight sweater and pant with a cardigan or wool jacket if I need a layer for going outside. The photo with the beer is from today. It's been Hell Week at work, which I knew was going to happen. Why? Because I'm…

4 days, 1 pant

Wearing the same pant until Friday was surprisingly easy. I was reminded of my old uniforms where I wore a tee and jeans every day. Usually the same jeans with a different tee. Once again I'm questioning do I really need half the clothes I own? Probably not, but feeling the gut wrenching remorse of…

Everything changes

I'm on a light color and monochrome kick. A dress! This is the only dress I own right now. I just got it from Knock Knock Linen (after nearly two months). It's heavy weight linen so it's got a nice heft to it that makes me feel grounded and safe in it. The pockets are…

Clothes without a job

As I was getting ready for work one day I thought: what if I didn't have this job? How would I dress? If I didn't have to work would I still have the same clothes in my closet? Would I have as many? Considering people associate themselves with their lines of work or what they…

Lots of linen

All three tops are made with linen to some degree. The first two are from Etsy shops with medium weight linen. The last one is a cotton/linen blend cardigan and light enough to wear on 80-something degree days without getting too warm. The first top (green) is my second item from Knock Knock Linen and…

Death cleaning

The last photo is of my new Chimala jeans. I got some longer length ones I thought would be good for cooler weather. However, I wasn't expecting them to be so wide-legged. I can't return them (final sale) but I'm wavering between getting them hemmed in tighter to a straight-leg cut and getting the length…

Days with no meaning

The last photo shows my mood of this week: NOPE. It's been insanity at work. Days are blurring together as nothing but work and deadlines and projects seem to crowd my view. We just hired someone to help me, but the extra time it takes to get her up to speed is only doubling the…

Headless to blur

When I take photos, I usually crop the head off. I'm wondering if maybe seeing my hair will help me assess the outfit better because one's hairstyle can affect the way an outfit looks. I noticed that recently with the pinterest photos of outfits I've been liking a lot. So maybe I'll do a face…
