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.

How are things in your world?

What I Wore: Black Lace & Mint

Hey all. A little late to the game today because I couldn’t be bothered to take outfit pictures yesterday. So this is what I wearing right now. Minty fresh, no? I love these printed jeans, and this cardi is seriously the softest thing. Cozy all around. Oh, and this is my new hairdo. Not the best pics because it was windy and kept blowing in my face, but it gives you an idea. I should’ve taken a before pic before heading out Monday, just so you could see the drastic change. Ah well. I like it. It seems to be […]

What I Wore: Winter Mint

I know, I know. You guys were probably at least expecting snow on the ground with that title. But hey, I live in Austin. It was chilly out for these parts (I wore this on Sunday). And if it makes you northerners feel better, there was hail in the forecast when I checked the weather for the week. Admittedly, that was also on Sunday and it doesn’t look like that’s in the cards (or the clouds, rather) anymore. But it was cold enough I didn’t feel like taking off my coat, so there’s that. This is my version of taking […]

What I Wore: Minty Fresh

A further venture into the colored denim world: mint jeans! These were admittedly less scary than the bright red ones, and way easier to find things to pair with. I like ’em. This is what I wore yesterday (my blogiversary!) around the house and out to run errands. It combines some of my favorite things: these shoes, skinny jeans, polka dots, and… Lace! Betcha didn’t see that coming. Normally I hate any part of my bra showing, but I’ll make an exception for a shirt like this (or wear a blazer over it, as I’ve done in a few non-photo’d […]
