Easing Into Fall

As summer starts to gradually turn into fall, the mornings have been chilly but the afternoons sunny and warm. Now that I’m actually leaving my house again and working in my office (where my five co-workers and I all sit in a giant room with cubicles, spaced out like 10 feet apart), this dress is a great way to navigate those daily temperature changes. It’s long-sleeved so a bit warmer for the cooler mornings but a lightweight material and still a dress, so nice for the hotter afternoons. Look at me, problem solving with my clothes and all…

I'm Ready For Summer to End

Still beating the heat, in my own disturbing, faux leather leggings, way…

Thankfully it's cooled down a little since I did these photos, which is good news for me because I'm back to working daily in my physical office instead of being home all day with my air conditioner cranked.

Heat Wave

We've experienced a series of horrific heat waves over the summer and it's been nearly intolerable on many days. As far as I’m concerned, anything over about +25 is a hellscape so I do not at all tolerate 31+ temperatures. That said, I stuck with my black clothes – my privileged ass has A/C at home and, seeing as how I’m still working from home, I was able to make the black keep working for me.

All the Frills: The Marble Shelf

Not content with adding some new d├ęcor pieces to our bedrooms, I recently did a little reordering of things in my main living area and creating a little display of my growing statuette and “marble” bust collection. I’m very pleased with the results – this remains my favourite little space in my house.

The Weather Is Always My Greatest Foe

Well, it was lovely and warm and summery here (before the recent heat wave struck). And then the rain started. So my plans to wear a cute dress now needed to involve boots and a coat. Sigh. In more exciting news, looks like I might be heading back into my office by mid-August! It’s honestly going to be beyond weird to not be working from home and I will definitely need a bit of time to adjust but I’m excited!
