I can’t help worrying that our blogger followers haven’t found us over here. We were getting so close to 100 followers! It was going to be a modest, but exciting milestone for us!
As an academic working in the humanities, I cannot stress enough how awesome it is to have more than 2 people read what I write. This is especially true because I am an amateur – a fledgling, even – in this fashion genre/discipline (i.e. in the field in which I am a specialist, I dream of even 3 other specialists reading the stuff I sweat blood to produce).
In short, StyleNation, I miss you and your wonderful commentary. (And thank-you to those of you who have been commenting over here.) I hope the others will come back to talk with us, again, someday.
Let’s have a quick outfit photo to break up the relentless text here, shall we?
Outfit #1: For Teaching Last Week:
Mexx ruffle-front dress (as tunic): remixed; Max Studio bias-cut black short-sleeved cardigan: remixed; Cotton Mossimo t-shirt: Target (bought in Texas with E-Jo during the beautiful, warm, wine-soaked dream); Grey “pearl” stretchy bracelets: The Bay; Black leggings: remixed ad nauseum on this blog; Blondo lined riding boots: Browns (remixed)

In other news, February persists and continues to SUCK. This is in part because I am very close to being overwhelmed by marking responsibilities of late, and in part because, according to a not-at-all rigorous or even-close-to-clinical self-diagnosis on the internet, I may have a smidge of seasonal affective disorder. Also, the Hubs and I are living mostly in the basement of our new house because we’re having the kitchen renovated this winter. That’s right: I live underground, like a mole, and it is stupid.
‘Good thing we have the Fuzzy Roommate and His Puppy. The FR continues to avoid the camera, but His Puppy is a total publicity whore. Case in point:
Outfit #2: Worn for Office Hours and a Meeting with Two Women I Really, Really Admire
BcbgMaxazria Cardigan: new to blog (via Winners, January sales); Necklace: gifted; H&M t-shirt: new to blog (but old to me); Mexx pointe knit trousers: remixed; Nine West belt: remixed (via The Bay); Invisible Hush Puppy winter ankle boots: remixed; Prop: flappy, bumble bee puppy chew toy; The FR’s Dog: not into the bee just now
Something about this cardigan makes me think of Sal. She’s like the jedi master of long flowy cardigan wearing. Also, check out the FR’s Pup’s adorable ‘tocks:
Finally, just because I have it:
‘Got any survival strategies for February, StyleNation?
I’d sooo appreciate anything advice you’re willing to offer.
