Unlike my co-bloggers, I have nothing remotely fancy to offer you. That I have outfits at all is astonishing, since for most of the last two weeks I’ve been in some variation of sloppy t-shirt and yoga pants. My term doesn’t start for another week here and, while I’m glad to have the time away from teaching, I desperately need to get back to schedule-land. I’m really useless at managing my time over such a (relatively) short break (the two & a half, post-New Year’s weeks) even though I have a ton of stuff that needs to be done. Over the summer, I end up getting into a groove — though that takes me an inordinately long time — but I can’t seem to do it at this time of year (or at spring break). I’ve tried dressing up to work at home but that doesn’t seem to do the trick– and then I’m neither getting work done nor am I as comfortable as I could be.
Anyhow, here are the two outfits worthy of photography from the previous two weeks:
Ruffle blouse & jeans: Old Navy
Patent flats (now fully deceased after the mini-FR got a hold of them): Target
Blur behind my leg: the mini-FR trying to get into the picture or climb my back.
I wore this out to dinner with a friend. The sweater is a new purchase — the Gap in the crappy mall in my town is closing so all their sale items were 50% off, making this light wool cardi a superb deal. I haven’t gotten as much use out of this blouse (which I love) as I anticipated as it’s just slightly too small in the chestal arena. It fits well everywhere else though so I just need to layer it more than I have been.
Purple turtleneck & jeans: Old Navy
Black wrap tank: Joe
Necklace: LOFT Outlet (it’s silver, though it reads slightly gold here)
The mini-FR: revealing his jumpy self to the world in this series of pictures. Half a second later, he was at my waist. Dude’s got game; I should have named him Air Bud.
Not much to say about this outfit other than that I wore it to go to the office only to find that the file I needed to work on that I thought I had saved on my cloud storage was only on my laptop. Saving fail. I did some fussing with my syllabi and I’m back at home now. Great story, no?
How do you avoid the January blahs?
