Welcome back, you! Welcome back, me! Welcome back, everybody!

How’s the year been treating you so far? I’m not a huge resolution-maker, but I have resolved to choose relaxation over anxiety or irritability when I can help it.

(I mean, I frequently can’t help it, but that’s what the medication is for.)

Possibly I should also resolve to stop losing my glasses in the couch, but let’s take things one step at a time here.

I think my hair might be particularly enormous in these pictures.

This is, of course, before I crushed it with my bike helmet so I could ride to work.

Mike’s already a little concerned about the quantity of hair I have (and, frankly, the quantity I shed)–if I just let it keep going, do you think it would take over the world?

Does this work? I think it works, so I guess it’s actually pretty irrelevant what anyone else thinks, but I welcome your comments and constructive criticism nevertheless.

20151207-IMG_5139

Speaking of criticism, these photos were unusually difficult to edit, for some reason, and I’m still not really happy with them. I mean, it’s not like I do anything fancy or complicated, but trying to get the light correct was an exercise in futility. I swear these socks and shirt are the same shade of black, even though you wouldn’t know it from the pictures. I blame the sun.

(I blame the sun for a lot of things.)

I know this might knock your socks off, but this necklace? Used to be two necklaces.

20151119-IMG_5064

I know, I’ll let you catch your collective breath. I don’t know if I can even delve far back enough into this blog’s past to find one of the original shorter incarnations, because one of the problems with them being shorter was I just didn’t wear them much. Same problem as the Tom Waits necklace, which I lengthened a while back by adding some chain to it.

20151119-IMG_5067

I guess longer necklaces are just my deal? I dunno, man. Anyway, I just made a few modifications to the two vintage amber necklaces my mom gave me so that I could fix them together, and here we are! Truly mind-blowing work, I know. I’m impressed with myself too.

This outfit is something I puzzled together to go see Vienna Teng again!

20151107-IMG_5047

I have a penchant for seeing her in November, I guess.

20151107-IMG_5050

This time it wasn’t just Vienna, but also most of the rest of the cast of The Fourth Messenger, a musical about a modern-day female Buddha. They performed a selection of the songs and then did a signing for the album release party! Neat!

20151107-IMG_5051

I’ll be honest–I just don’t know if I’m a big fan of musicals anymore. There were definitely a lot of good parts to The Fourth Messenger, though, and I’d recommend it if musicals are your thing. The performers were all excellent, particularly Cailan Rose and Reggie D. White. Vienna did some solo music after The Fourth Messenger, too, and that was delightful as always. A good outing to inaugurate my new leggings, indeed!

Is it really an outfit if I wore it to clean house and threw a necklace on to run some errands?

20151011-IMG_4946

I say yes, which is why it’s on here. If you disagree, then YOU send me some outfit pictures and I’ll put them up on the blog!

20151011-IMG_4950

I mean that. Hit me up! Be a blog buddy!

20151011-IMG_4951

And if not, well, then, come clean my house or something so I can wear more complicated outfits. I think that’s only fair.
