Everlane Sweater and Other Updates

Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013 | 31 Comments   

Hello. Last week I got in a new Everlane cashmere sweater and have been living in it since its arrival. I sized up for a super loose fit. It’s soft and warm and comforting. The color is a perfect burgundy shade that melded instantly into my closet of black, gray, and navy.

I also finally ordered one of their $15 U-neck tees. So happy I did. I got it to wear with thick sweater coats and my leather jacket and the fit is more flattering than I could have hoped for. I think for me the U-neck is more flattering than their original ryan tees even. I might order another in black eventually.

This weekend was pretty great actually. I felt really productive. Around this time of year I tend to want a change and either cut or color my hair or both. But so far I’ve been more into rearranging the furniture and home decor of my house. Just room to room. Switching out lamps or moving a piece of furniture. I hadn’t done it in so long. And the small changes make coming home from work feel less routine.

I kept starting and stopping writing a new blog post all week. Nothing in particular stopping me. I would just feel really motivated but then some little thing would bum me out and I wouldn’t feel like finishing. I think that best describes my entire October. Full of ups and downs. Little joys followed by little bummers. I’m mostly feeling bummer’fied thanks to being sick or having a constant toothache. Being in physical discomfort has its way of wearing on you emotionally of course. Hopefully by the holidays I’ll be done with the toothache aspect.

Autumn Update

Friday, Oct. 11, 2013 | 16 Comments   

Thanks for putting up with my blog sale! I appreciate anyone who stopped by and all the orders have been shipped out! When I started the sale last week it was 90°F and sunny. Today with ending it it’s 55°F and extremely rainy.

I thought I’d update with some recent photos that I’ve been posting here & there. First from today. Cold and rainy. Also some of the things I’ve been wearing lately. The pleated skirt is my favorite. It has 3 different button options so I can wear it even on bloated days.

I did a makeup swap with Anupa recently too! The brown lashes are so pretty. If it stops raining I want to wear them to Oktoberfest this weekend.

I also fished out my balls of yarn and knitting books. I’ve started a basic roll-up hate and some 100% cotton dishtowels.

Last weekend my car broke down and I couldn’t get it fixed until later so I ran my errands using the stores near my house. Usually I drive a bit further out but as a stroke of luck I found these two rose-scented fabric softeners at the other stores! One is a more intense 1-rinse only type that is basically a rose perfume for your clothes from Downy. The other is Suavitel which I usually get in Sunset Rose but this one is Festival of Flowers which is a lighter rose fragrance than the other.
