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…

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…

Curating or cutting down

Super casual for work, but it's not as if it's out of place at all. In fact, I'm wondering to some degree why I dressed up so much before. It's not that I didn't like to, but this shopping ban has very much driven the point across that I was trying a little too hard.…

Practical vs aesthetics

I've been reading a lot of good articles and many I meant to post here. So sorry if you've already seen them: The High Cost of Ethical Fashion is a Barrier to Entry - by Leah Wise -She said outright what I've always thought. The Hidden Air Pollution in Our Homes - found via Reading…

Reboot

Lots of "new" things have been happening. New higher management at work with new ideas and ideals for the company is causing havoc. Almost every department is getting revamped - so to speak - and lots of employees are being shuffled around and given new titles. A coworker said he felt like the company turned…

Neutral

This outfit was inspired by Michelle, who wears many more light colored neutrals than I do. In fact, I've been a little surprised at my somewhat lack of black lately since that's my neutral go-to color. Maybe it's because I've been in a better mood? Or because it's spring and we may have squeaked by…

End of coat season

A lot of these photos are out of order, but I thought I'd take photos while in my coats or jackets since the weather is warming up and I won't be needing them soon. The second to last photo I was wearing my workout jacket with only a sports bra underneath. I did wear a…
