I don’t use the “navy” tag on this blog very much, since navy isn’t usually my first choice for neutrals and I don’t have much of it in my closet, but I guess I really should use it in reference to this shirt. I think of it as blue, but isn’t it navy?


Where’s the line for navy, anyway? Is it a question only of shade or also of saturation? I guess I could look it up, but I’d rather ask you.


(Please to ignore the my phone; the sticky note just has a to-do list on it. I make to-do lists on my phone, on my computer, on Habitica, and it still isn’t enough. It’s a wonder I get anything done.)


Anyway, I find myself grateful that this blog doesn’t have a “mustard” tag in addition to “yellow,” or I’d be here all day.

Guess who overslept on her first day back to work in the new year?! I completely spaced on resetting my alarm after the holidays like a champ. Fortunately, my boss was very understanding, and I’m also glad that I remembered all the appropriate pieces of clothing while rushing to get dressed. Any potentially positive aspects of this outfit just frosting.

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.

Re-confirmed: taking indoor night pictures without a fancy lighting setup = not a great idea. It was worth a try, though! My erstwhile blogging companion and said companion’s spouse have been visiting and it’d be a little rude to ask them to move their guest mattress at 7:40am from my picture-taking region, don’t you think?


Unrelated: Evidently, I repeat myself. And I thought this outfit was so original!

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.


(We all have to make sacrifices in our lives.)


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?

Shirt and Cardigan: Thrifted (Target) — Skirt: ASOS — Shoes: Thrifted (Born) — Thigh-highs: Sock Dreams (Extraordinarily Longer Striped Thigh Highs in Steel/Light Blue) — Earrings: B&A Estate Jewelry


The beginnings of this outfit were discards from the weekend–before deciding on the tunic and leggings from yesterday’s post, I spent a long, indecisive time trying things on for the very important task of leaving the house to go grocery shopping.


However, a few of these pieces ended up together in the meantime, which explains how I was so coordinated first thing on a Monday morning.


I don’t usually have the wherewithal to come up with something like this right after I wake up anymore.


(You might have noticed the simpler outfits, and I appreciate your not saying anything negative about it. You have wonderful manners!)


Anyway, the tiny tie worked out and we haven’t seen it in ages, so sometimes initial failure leads to later success. A life lesson for us all, especially in regard to tiny ties.
