It's been a minute, sorry. Anyway, I'm back and I note that I'm in the exact same color combination that I wore in my last post. Clearly I like it... Had two depositions this morning in another city, and then grunt work in the office all afternoon. My exhaustion with this day is pretty evident on my face....
I realized as I got dressed this morning that I randomly remembered I have worn this top/cardigan combo once before on this here blog, four long years ago... (weird, how have I been blogging for four years??
It's a rainy Monday and I am trucking along with work, work, werkkkk....
(also, I posted a few weekend wear outfits on instagram just to mix things up a bit-- and also because i am trying to be better about getting out of the jeans/t-shirt weekend rut)....
Hello! I feel like I'm pretty consistently LOFT/The Limited with shoes from Asos these days. Speaking of which, now that The Limited is closed :( I need to find a new place to buy suits. I think its time for an upgrade, too. Not that The Limited suits aren't good, but think I need to invest in some higher quality pieces.... ideas?
My posting ratio is shameful - 1:15 at best. Meanwhile, bravissima to Paloma, lo, these many months, not just for her consistency but for killing it with her work chic literally day in, and day out. I miss you, Paloms!
Anyway, haven't posted at all which is weird because I missed the announcement that I am newly employed in Century City! Only, not so new anymore since it's been a few months. I miss DTLA something fierce - not the least of which is the occasional meetup with Paloma - but I've always wanted to work out here, and it's closer to home, so hooray for new chapters.
There have been definite changes to my style to sort of fit in with the decidedly Westside vibe around here. Still have to figure it out - is it the proximity to CAA? The fact that the beach is 12 miles closer? What? One thing is for sure - I am in my gray period. Getting caught up over the last three months, here are outfits typical from each and confirming my commitment to shades of gray.
Top: a holdover Zara tunic from DTLA days (and I love oversized looks!)
Skirt: basic assymetrical black pencil from Nordstrom (totally into the bias on one)
Boots: (somewhat visible) standard suede ankle wedges from Dolce Vita
Work never seems to let up these days and I'm starting to realize that this is just the way my life is. Sigh. Anyway, I wanted to blog today, but took this at 6pm and was feeling worn out and punchy and thus decided to pose like a tool. And then decided to post it because sometimes we need some levity. Changing the world here, people. Changing the world.
[Also - head to toe LOFT. I clearly have an obsession.]
