What I Wore: Grey Stripes & Mint


I’m a bit behind this week, but I managed to snap these today before a storm rolled in. That’s right, it’s real-time personal style reporting, folks! Haha. But yeah, wearing this right now. Super comfy, as I like all my outfits to be. If there ever comes a day where I decide, for whatever reason, that I no longer like jersey knits, someone knock the crazy out of me. They are my jam. This cardi last seen here, but it’s this dress’ first blog appearance. I love the stripes against the solid, and the interesting lines of it. Plus, like I said – super comfy.

Though if I look a bit annoyed, it’s because my blasted tripod broke. The bit that screws into your camera to hold it in place? Yeah, not so much with the holding when you pivot the camera so it’s vertical. Sign. I literally just got a new one last month, too. Looks like I’ll be investing in a more quality tripod rather than a cheapy from Ebay.

So what else is new around here? Lots of work stuff popping up this week. Which is good, it’s just lots of random smaller stuff that I hadn’t really scheduled for, you know? And we’re hosting a crepe brunch for a small group of friends this Saturday, which means I should probably maybe start cleaning house so I’m not doing a mad dash Saturday early morning. I’m also trying to figure out what to get Ian for his birthday, since a) he usually just buys something for himself immediately after deciding he needs/wants it and b) is not supplying any ideas thus far. I still have 2+ weeks, but that’s cutting it close if I have to order something & have it shipped. The man is downright hard to gift shop for.
