In a shocking change of pace, I’m blogging the outfit that I wore today. In the ongoing bid to get stuff done in the month before the term starts, I’m apparently also including “take outfit photos” and “blog about them in a timely fashion.” We’ll see how long THIS lasts.
In fact, this is an outfit chosen in direct response to the exigencies of coffee shop work marathons: ie. they’re freezing, so bring a cardi. I felt a bit strange pulling one out this morning given the blazing heat, but, after a week of work-related hypothermia, I learned my lesson. I can only explain the length of time I needed to learn this particular lesson by the fact that I’m generally overheated in most situations so I was in a state of disbelief.
I got this dress on sale just before I left on my trip and I’m kind of in love with it. It’s hard to see in the pictures (the following one is a little better on this front) but it’s got a faux wrap panel on the bottom half which jazzes the whole thing up a bit. It’s a touch short for sitting around, working, but leggings fix that pretty readily. And, in a different context, the length would be fine. I’m planning, also, to stitch together the top about an inch higher so I’ll fidget with it less.
Also in this picture, which features a new photo location: my bedroom, is the chair I painted months ago and made wild promises about pictures. It’s a pretty basic Ikea chair I bought through Craigslist. The frame was initially a light birch but, as a team Color member, that seemed a bit dull. So it’s coral now! Thrilling story, no? This picture is also a touch misleading as the chair is generally covered in clothes, with a small smooth dog burrowed underneath them.
Any new (to you or otherwise) and fun house decor purchases that provide excellent photo posing possibilities? (To be clear, the poses above are the extent to which I’m making use of the chair as a prop. Pictures taken while seated seem far too unflattering for my degree of vanity.)
