Sequins and Boots

Thigh high boots seemed like the most appropriate thing to pair with this athletic wear-esque dress with a silver sequin stripe down the arm. I mean my black Converse would have worked too but I sort of love it with the boots.

The Closest I Could Get to Actual Pajamas

Worn for an extremely long day when I just wanted to be comfortable but also didn’t want to go full on pajamas. I think this served perfectly.

A Rare Outing in Jeans

I’m not much a jeans wearer (you may have noticed that they almost never make an appearance in this space) but every so often I’ll dust off my single pair that fits great and which I will never part with. It seems an especially apt choice when my day at work involves moving around a bunch of office furniture to reconfigure a space.

All the Frills: Is There Such a Thing as Too Many Sequins?

Last month I was worried I was amassing too many velvet and velour pieces. Clearly my real problem is sequins…

Weekend Reading:

  • I really miss Yale Beinecke’s Library. During my six years at Yale, I was at the Beinecke at least once a month for the Thursday evening Early Modern Colloquium lecture series and then I also did a two month fellowship there, wherein I spent every day sitting in the reading room and looking at their paper collections – not to mention all the other, less regular exhibits and lectures I attended there. It’s just a fantastic place!
  • This is really solid parenting advice.
  • While these jackets are, I’m sure, WAY out of my price range, they are beautiful; and it’s just such a good idea for a collaboration.
  • Another amazing property that the wealthy me that occupies some other dimension has just purchased.
  • The first recorded use of the “f” word.

Rushing, Rushing, Rushing

I was in such a hurry the morning that I took these photos (Eleanor overslept a bit and we were in a mad panic to get out the door on time) that I forget to zip up my shoes. I honestly didn’t even notice until I’d been at work for a good couple of hours. Yikes, this week is off to a great start.
