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…

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.…

More plants and quiet moments

I've replaced buying clothes with buying plants. Luckily, I can buy a lot more plants for cheaper prices than I can the clothes I want. I still haven't bought any clothes, but I have a list. It's very small, but I feel like the fact that these very specific items keep popping into my head…

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…
