Dress Well: Take It Easy

I'm glad I decided to take it easy from a clothes perspective on Tuesday - work was NOT easy, but wearing comfortable clothes made it marginally better. Plus, I just love this outfit. There's something about wearing good clothes that makes working on PowerPoint presentations late into the night more bearable.DSC_4228

DSC_4237The thing that makes EVERYTHING marginally better this week is the fact that my parents land in San Francisco this afternoon! I'm very much looking forward to a weekend of eating, laughing, drinking wine, and enjoying this beautiful city. Life is good, my friends!

Dress Well: Add Some Slouch

I do not wear these boyfriend jeans enough. Somehow they always drift to the bottom of my jeans pile, only to be recovered if I see someone else wearing boyfriend jeans and think, "oh yeah, I have a pair of those!"

I know when I look back on these pictures in a decade, these jeans will look crazy outdated. I used to think that was a good reason to not wear things, but these days I've changed my mind - especially when things like boyfriend jeans, track pants, and drapey tops come into style, we should all take full advantage. Women's fashion doesn't tend towards comfort, so we should be allowed to walk in the sun in those rare moments when comfortable items are shining their brightest. Who's with me?

DSC_3032I had half a mind to wear these jeans again today - my office is going to go play laser tag, so ease of movement is pretty much my top outfit priority. I haven't played laser tag since I was 12 and I have terrible aim, but I'm still determined to win. I'll let you know how that turns out.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Dress Well: Laid-Back Stripes

If you guys thought I was joking about taking comfort seriously, I'm here to prove you wrong. Seriously, I think the only way to make this outfit more comfortable would be to swap the blouse out for a worn-in sweatshirt. And don't even get me started on these jeans. I strongly urge everyone to take full advantage of the boyfriend jean trend while it's still in - someday they will go out of style, and we'll all be left in our too stiff, too tight, too uncomfortable jeans. Live it up while you can!

I would write more...but there's figure skating to watch! See you back here tomorrow - have a great day!

Dress Well: First In, First Out

All I can think while looking at these pictures is, "oh my gosh, I can't WAIT to get a haircut." My long-awaited hair appointment is this weekend, so please excuse my scraggly locks in the meantime.

I've spoken of my deep-seated love for this J. Crew blouse before. I mean, I'm wearing this shirt in the picture in the sidebar on this blog, for goodness sake! This shirt is everywhere in my life, meaning that as soon as it comes back from the drycleaners, I immediately wear it again. I think my drycleaner is under the impression that I own one shirt...I can't blame her.

In completely random news, my husband and I just finished the first three seasons of Arrested Development. I know, I know - our nerd credentials are much diminished by the fact that it took us this long to become AR fans. Anyway, we're going to start the new Netflix season of the show tonight, and I'm so excited - how cool is it that we get to enjoy the old shows and the new shows in such quick succession? I love technology.

Have a great Tuesday!
