It’s the last full week of work before the winter holidays—a nearly two-week break!—and it’s quietly busy in the office. When I first started this job, I thought it would be a fun experiment to see how long I could go to work wearing skirts instead of pants; as a web developer with rarely any client meetings, I could probably get away with wearing hoodies and jeans, but after two and a half years here, I’m still enjoying my style journey.
I also think I have found a new spot for morning photography! I had some trouble using my mini flexible tripod on the fence before, but after testing a few different configurations, I figured out the best one. This may mean I actually need to rake up the leaves, but whatever. Are you guys going to judge me for not raking?
I’ve always liked wearing turtlenecks and cowl-neck sweaters, but thought they looked a little weird on me. Trying out different lengths of necklaces give me a bit more playing room. This sweater is awesome, if I do say so myself; it is my favorite hand-knit sweater and I’m glad to get to wear it now that’s it’s cold enough. I really like the brown and bronze matching with the maroon in the yarn.
Brown! and more brown! I’ve had these Danskos long enough that they are a little stretched from wearing them with socks, and wearing them with tights feels a little loose. I may be on the lookout for similar shoes that would fit more snugly with tights.
Do you have different shoes for socks versus tights?
