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…

Calm, but not ready to go back to work yet

Z and I returned from Florida today. Tomorrow we go back to work. Neither of us is looking forward to it. We came home to a musty house, so I've gone around doing light cleaning, checking my plants, and lighting soft scented candles. Even though our trip was short, we did get everything out of…

New old things

This has become my token summer Friday outfit. I tend to always wear this shirt and now these jeans on Fridays. A uniform! Usually I wear my Vans with this outfit and I did today while in the office because the AC was pumping. I left work early and put on the sandals when I…
