What I Wore: Grey Stripes & Mint

grey-mint-1

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: Pale Colorblock

I think at heart I will always be a jeans & t-shirt girl. I often enjoy dresses and skirts, and like getting dolled up every once in awhile. But when I ask myself in the morning “I want to be comfortable today, what should I wear?” the answer is almost always jeans and a tee. That’s not to say it can’t still be interesting, or dressed up if needed. Throw on a blazer and heels/wedges and the outfit goes up a few notches. And I think interesting tees like this one I wore yesterday keep the combo not boring. I […]

Pastel Window Shopping

I was playing around on Fashionspace (kind of like Polyvore) doing some online window shopping, and here is the cute outfit I came up with. Obviously I’m working with a pastel theme here. 🙂   My birthday is in October, just FYI. No reason. 😉
