Top: Thrifted (Chaps) — Cardigan: Thrifted (no label) — Skirt: eShakti — OTKs: Sock Dreams (Extraordinary Thigh-Highs in Navy) — Earrings: Gift


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.

Dress: eShakti — Cardigan: Thrifted (Carole Little) — OTKs: Sock Dreams (Harajuku Scrunchy Socks in Pale Mint) — Boots: Macy’s — Earrings: Gift, from Barcelona


I love this dress. I love how yellow it is. I love how it makes me look like a happy circus tent.


It’s not restrictive so I could conceivably escape peril while wearing it, but it also goes nicely with argyle!


Even action clothing has its limits, though, so please enjoy a few examples of why I don’t try to do jumping (or in this case, high-kicking) pictures for the blog anymore.


It’s dignity! Gah! Don’t you even know dignity when you see it?!

Dress: Thrifted (no label) — Sweatervest: Thrifted (Mix It) — Thigh-highs: Sock Dreams (Extraordinarily Longer Striped Thigh Highs in Plum/Black) — Boots: Macy’s — Ring: Asian Art Museum — Earrings: Gift


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!

Tunic: Thrifted (Charlotte Russe) — Leggings: Carousel Ink — Boots: Amazon (Diesel) — Earrings: Heatherly Designs


Dudes and duderinos, I hate to say it, but I’m wiped. It’s only Monday and it’s already been a long week! Please accept this text-lite post with my apologies, and feel free to fill in your own witty captions about leggings with Victorian houses on them.

Turtleneck: Old Navy — Skirt: Thrifted (CAbi) — Boots: Macy’s — OTKs: Sock Dreams (Heather Over the Knee Stockings in Slate) — Earrings: Target


See, now this outfit I at least partially planned out the night before. Good thing, too, because I overslept my alarm and missed my chance to work a shower into my already-rushed morning schedule.


That always happens this time of year, but I haven’t figured out a solid way around it yet. I’ve started placing my phone across the room so that I have to physically get up and turn the alarm off, but that doesn’t work very well when it’s so cold that I immediately turn back around and crawl under the covers again.


I’ve also tried placing my fuzzy winter robe and slippers strategically near the alarm, but I’m not at my most rational when I’m sleepy. Let’s hope that setting the thermostat a few degrees higher in the morning makes a difference or it’s going to be a greasy winter.

Dress: eBay (Marimekko) — Cardigan: Thrifted (Belldini) — OTKs: Target — Shoes: Thrifted (Born) — Earrings: Gift


Pink socks weren’t my first choice for this outfit, but sometimes you gotta go with what’s clean.


Getting up and dressed in the mornings has been a struggle lately–it’s cold, it’s dark, and everything’s kind of a mess. I should really help myself out by working up the energy to organize outfits the night before.


My morning hair-drying experiments continue apace, though, so at least that’s something.

Dress: Lana — Cardigan: Thrifted (no label) — OTKs: Sock Dreams (Dreamer Tartan OTK in Charcoal/Natural/Ochre) — Shoes: Thrifted (Born) — Belt: Thrifted (no label) — Earrings: Hand-me-down


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


His response? “Usually.” Wise guy.
