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.

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.)

When I put this outfit together I wasn’t sure about it, so I asked Mike if I looked weird.

20151120-IMG_5074

His response? “Usually.” Wise guy.

I want a girl with a short skirt / and loooooooong sleeve-ies

20150219-IMG_3256

Okay, it doesn’t really scan. I’m working on it. Anyway, I spent a while with the sleeves of this top pushed up to 3/4 length, but sometimes I just want to feel like a freshman in high school again.

Are they still making hoodies with built-in thumb holes? Can I get a super-professional blazer like that somewhere?

I’m not sure how I feel about this frantically thrown-together ensemble. It fits, which is good, but beyond that, I’m just not sure. Also, these gray oxfords are really starting to fall apart; where did your favorite pair of shoes come from?

This outfit has a secret. (Not a very well-kept secret but a secret nevertheless.)

20150118-IMG_3144

BOOM. DOUBLE PLAID. And yet somehow I still don’t look like a lumberjack.

In other news: this cat. This friggin’ cat. Flat Tire has been all up ons every time I take outfit pictures lately. Maybe because she wants to break out into her own modeling career? She’s adding some stripes to the pattern mix here, at least.

20150118-IMG_3145

I think she prefers nude modeling, though, based on her reactions when I try to help her wear a hat.

I could’ve sworn I’d worn this skirt and sweater together before, but a quick jaunt through the archives says no.

20150116-IMG_3136

Surprising, because it seems so obvious! Then again, I don’t wear this sweater as often as I could because it’s one of my many hand-washables.

20150116-IMG_3137

I do hand-washing on the reg, but as a matter of course (and as a matter of limited drying-rack space), that stuff just doesn’t get worn as much.

20150116-IMG_3140

You’d think I’d learn, but when I check wash instructions at the thrift store I’m always convinced that adding one more thing to the wash bucket will be a piece of cake. Oh, foolish Past Mia. What will you have gotten up to next?

Oof. My posting has been and might continue to be a little spotty this week! Mike’s dad has needed help moving house and it’s occupied most of our waking, non-working hours since Saturday.

20141212-IMG_2959

Jumping back, though, this is what I wore to my office’s holiday party. We were given rare permission to wear jeans, so I got excited and wore my plaid ones again. Twice in one week! Calm and order are really breaking down here at Casa Mia.

20141212-IMG_2962

Anyway, the party was pretty good, as office holiday parties go! Good food, a nice employee appreciation gift, and we played a gift exchange game where I gave away a small, highly-detailed plastic hand and got a fuzzy scarf in return. Festive!
