I don’t have much to offer you lovely people today as summer continues apace here with its pattern of working and complaining about the heat moving along nicely. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve gotten into a nice little work routine where I meet up with friends to work in coffee shops in the afternoon. Working with other people helpfully shames me into getting far more work done than I do on my own. Shame, as always, continues to be my greatest and most effective motivator.
Alongside this work routine, I’ve developed a bit of a uniform. See if you can tell its constituent parts in the following:
These shirts are the Old Navy ones that Ally at Wardrobe Oxygen mentioned a couple of months ago and I’m, more or less, obsessed with them. I think I’ve got six in a pretty regular rotation right now. I’ve been wearing them A LOT with the cotton pants in the bottom picture — you guys know how much I love an Old Navy cotton casual pant — which I also have in a khaki color. The pants are good for the freezing coffee shops but light enough that I don’t collapse from heat stroke the minute I go outside. This makes for comfortable outfits, but not exactly the most visually thrilling ones. And, if I’m being honest, the outfit is frequently sans scarf. It’s a thrilling life I lead here.
Anyone else got a style uniform they develop in extreme temperatures? Or during periods of non-stop work?
