Button-front: Goodwill — Skirt: Gift –Belt: Target — Tights: Target — Flats: Goodwill (Target) — Scarf: Thrifted — Earrings: Gift

Ooooh, girl! [/RuPaul voice] Sorry about the funky quality of the pictures today; I’ve been all excited about it being light when I get home from work, and I ended up taking pictures this day when it was still too bright and the sunlight started harshing my buzz.

I need to learn how natural light works again, apparently. If I can trick Michael into bringing his camera to work again like he used to, we’ll start taking pictures on campus, but until then it might be back to the backyard for me. Yee-haw!

Oh, man. I had this silk butterfly scarf for…a while…before finally busting it out and wearing it to work. I do this with scarves, apparently! I MUST HAVE THEM ALL and then they pile up and I forget about them. It’s a conscious effort to pick one out. This time, though, I grabbed the scarf and styled the outfit around it, which tends to work better than the other way around. (I also unashamedly wore butterfly earrings to go with my butterfly scarf. I’M NOT SORRY.)

See? Pretty. I tried to take a close-up picture so any butterfly experts out there (*cough*) would be able to say whether the butterflies on this scarf are true-to-life varieties, but it got all grainy and gross-looking so I chucked it. (The picture, not the scarf.) Next time! Next time I will remember How Camera Works.

As an aside, happy Friday! What have you got going on this weekend? Oh, is that so? Mm, sounds like fun! Me, I’ve got a brunchy book club in Berkeley on Saturday, and Mike and I are going to see the Ting Tings on Sunday. Oughter be fun! (Plus, we’re having a welcome-baby thing for one of my coworkers today at lunchtime, which means free food. Get it!)

Have a great weekend, monsters and monsteresses!

    Oooh! Any chance of a tutorial on how to fold a square scarf in order to wear it as a tie? I own a number of square silk scarves (gifts) and struggle to wear them with, well, anything…
