I Love a Good Striped Tee - 9/12/14


So despite having worked there for over a month now, today is my first Friday actually in the Philly office.  I hadn't asked anyone about casual Friday, so I figured I would just go a little more casual than normal and see what everyone else wore, as I had a suspicion it wasn't like the old office where everyone wore jeans on Friday.  I was right by the way.  Silly people.  Also, while my pants look grey for some reason, they are actually much more green in real life, which makes it a way more exciting outfit, in my opinion. :)

Another new discovery!

I am not a photogenic person, so I don't like to be in photos usually.  So it's interesting that just after 4 days of taking photos of myself, I've stumbled upon two discoveries (the first that I need to tone down the make-up, which I've done today).  Somehow looking a photo is just different than looking in the mirror, I'm not sure what it is.

Anyways, today's discovery is about necklines.  While I like to think I am a decent dresser, I'm not really sure what looks good on me, and I'm not good at identifying styles that are yay/nay.  But, I can say now that I don't think wide necklines (like boat-necks) look good, and a v-neck or narrow scoop look much better.  Subconsciously, I think I did know that, but it's nice to definitely identify it.

Getting there...9/11/14


I've broken my slump I think, and I feel much better about today's outfit.  Maybe I just need to suck it up and wear skirts every day, and that will make me feel more appropriately dressy.  Which is funny, because I'm wearing a t-shirt and a knit skirt.  I also broke out my boots for the first time this year, despite the forecast of 87 degrees for today.  It was cool this morning, and it's officially mid-September, whatever weather.com has to say about it.

A Little Lacey - 9/8/14

I finally got around  to going upstairs to my sewing studio, and "unpacked", aka, took everything out of the boxes and sat it on the floor.  But in doing so, I did somewhat set up my photo corner, which means I used my gorilla pod tripod to attach my camera to the stair railing, and call it good.  I've taken photos the past three days, and have realized in the process that I need to to tone down the make-up - it's getting a little out of control.  Anyways, welcome to my actual outfit diary now!

Pedicure Time, Take 2 - 9/7/14

So it was a beautiful day on Sunday, so I actually managed to make it over to the nail salon to get my pedicure.  I did have to wear a pair of shorts I'm not crazy about, but it was worth it.  I'm a big fan of the lightweight button-down over shorts look, but not of the individual pieces here.
