I am dressed (don't ask much more of me).

Since the beginning of the year, I've been planning my outfits out the night before.

This has helped me keep my goal of putting together interesting outfits, though often, still, my planned outfits are just a shirt and pants and nothing exciting at all. At least I don't have to worry about it the next morning.

I even managed to put together an actual outfit that wasn't a skirt-and-tights one:

The shirt is actually black-and-white striped, not gray, and is a little overwhelming on its own (especially considering the Christmas pounds I put on last month). But the belt (a thrift store find, woot!) cuts that nicely and ties it all together. I was really quite proud of myself.

With cardigan
I did do my skirt outfit as well, with a pair of supremely comfortable navy tights. I wish I could remember where I got them. Oh well. As you can see, I wore it with a cardigan against the AC in my office, but here it is without:

No cardigan.
I am fairly partial to my cozy cardigan collection, honestly.

Anyway. Yes, I've been a terrible blogger lately. It's been busy at work, and I am falling victim to the perfectionism virus: I have a post or two planned but don't want to do them until I have time to do them perfectly; therefore, they never get done.

Also my mother keeps making me post recipes. This is my personal wander-about-random-stuff blog. I gave up my food blog mostly because I think so many other people do food blogs so much better. But I really do enjoy it because I really do enjoy cooking and sharing that with other people. So I'm not too upset about its little revival.

In the meantime, I will leave you with a picture of a girl who's always impeccably dressed:



  1. I'm glad you're doing the food blog. I say if you love it, do it!

  2. Thanks, Sarah! I just read other food blogs and think, I'll never be as witty/well-designed/have such nice photographs as so-and-so. It feels pointless because, what am I really adding to this saturated conversation?

    But I think you're right: If I enjoy it, I should do it and not worry so much. It's not like I'm doing it professionally; it's a hobby. And a yummy one. ^_^
