Dudes. I’m back. All of a sudden it’s over a month since I last posted. Mostly this is because I’ve been away — wedding prepping and attending (of which there will be a separate post soon) and cottage bobbing. But I’ve returned to the world of work and regular outfit photographs. I’m behind on commenting but I’ve been reading all your blogs over the last month and you guys are bringing it which has been inspiring. I’m firmly into 100/38 degree days and working in a coffeeshop mode so it’s been really easy to fall into schlub wear. But, in the desire to overcome my holiday inertia, I need to up my sartorial game.
Here are two attempts to kickstart things:
Skirt and faux-snakeskin flats: Old Navy
This top is a conundrum. I love the idea of it but am afraid that it fails in the execution. Namely, it mostly looks sloppy rather than cool and architectural. It doesn’t help that heather gray is a dumb fabric to wear in super heat for sweat-related reasons. Also, from this angle, it’s a total boob deflater — and while I’ve got some to spare, I’m not entirely sure that’s what I’m really looking for in a top.
Dress and tank: Target
This is the dress I bought months ago after seeing Anne wearing it. Somehow, though, I haven’t blogged it as A-Dubs recently brought to my attention after I wore it when I spent a (delightful) day with her in Toronto. The dress is great and — most importantly — was not stained by the full glass of red wine I spilled on it while at the cottage.
And, finally, because he hasn’t featured for awhile and because he needs to confirm to his adoring fans that he’s recovered from some recent health issues, here’s the mini FR — copying Jude and Kameko with the bum shot.
