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: Have I Worn This Before?

Monday morning means reaching for the nearest thing in my closet and hoping I haven't worn it too frequently before. I was about 95% convinced that I'd worn this outfit on the blog before, but after a quick survey I think I was wrong (I think). Regardless, you can see why I thought it had already made an appearance here on the interwebs - the frequency with which I wear this necklace, blouse, jeans, and shoes makes it a statistical improbability that all four items hadn't converged into one outfit previous to its appearance today.

Ultimately, I got to wear a bunch of my favorite items on a Monday and didn't completely replicate an earlier blog post - I'm going to go ahead and call that a win.




DSC_4062You'll have to forgive me for failing to post yesterday - I spent most of my weekend wearing pajamas, taking naps, doing chores, and generally hanging around in un-glamorous outfits. Maybe I should do a "typical weekend" post sometime soon - it'd just be a montage of me in old t-shirts and yoga crops doing exciting things like taking the trash out and napping on my couch. It wouldn't be pretty, but it would be authentic.

Have a great day - see you back here tomorrow!

Dress Well: Serious Summer

Yesterday I had a LONG list of things to accomplish at work, and I thought that dressing like a businesswoman (a very casual businesswoman, but still a businesswoman) would help me focus. And you know what? I was totally right. Instead of dressing for the job I wanted, I dressed for the productivity I wanted - maybe there's something to be said for the role of slightly uncomfortable clothes at work. If you aren't comfortable, you most likely want to leave sooner, and when you want to leave sooner, you get your work done faster, right? I feel like someone has probably written a psychology paper about this before.





Thankfully, I was able to clear a lot of things off of my to-do list yesterday....still somehow didn't seem to put a dent in today's to-do list. But that's okay! I've got lots of fun things to look forward to this weekend - dinner with friends, a baby shower, time spent with my husband, and naps. Lots of naps. As I always say - I lead an exciting life.

Have a great weekend!

Dress Well: Found in Nature

I bought this blouse at J. Crew back when I bought these jeans, but somehow it hasn't made an appearance on the blog until today. Regardless, it's become my go-to summer shirt - light, machine washable (for when I inevitably spill ice cream on it), and a good match for white jeans (minus the ice cream thing). And I love it with my orange Anthro bag - I think the combo is just the right amount of "earth mother."




DSC_2477I would write more, but all my extra time is being dedicated to Orphan Black these days - have you seen it? At the pace my husband and I are tearing through the show, I'm pretty sure we'll have finished it by the time Orange is the New Black makes its season two debut on June 6th. Does that make it sound like my home life revolves around TV? Because it kind of does these days. At least it's quality programming, right?

Have an amazing Wednesday! (Seriously, four-day weeks are the best.)
