I Need to Revisit My Stance on Prints

Remember what I said about it being time to bust out the maxi dresses and skirts? Yeah, I was not messing around.

This skirt is a relatively new addition to my closet. At first I was a bit apprehensive about the print. But I’m kind of into it now. I keep thinking of myself as a person who's not super into prints (don't ask me why I've constituted myself thusly, I just have) but I think I need to revisit that because I'm starting to acquire more and more printed items and to enjoy wearing them.

All the Frills: Diamonds!

I wanted to give you all a break from my endless stream of house photos this week, so I’m showcasing this sparkly little number I recently acquired. I’m a sucker for things that shine.

It's Summer: Let the Near Constant Complaining Begin!

Well, much to my dislike, summer is now fully upon us. So time to bust out the maxi dresses and skirts, I suppose.

Work Wear

I was pretty pleased with this work outfit. I love the faux leather strip on these pants and the bow on the blouse is just too cute. Also, this blazer was one of my most amazing thrifting finds. I stumbled across this Calvin Klein blazer in Value Village about 9 years ago and it's been a closet staple ever since. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have an important meeting to go to…

Is It Any Surprise That I'm Pretty Obnoxious?

These pants are a personal favourite of mine – they’re just so loud and obnoxious, I can’t help but feel a little happy when I wear them. Especially when I’m spending the rest of the day studiously and painstakingly checking all my footnote references in the article I’m working on for accuracy. Which is a not very fun way to spend the day. Especially when you realize that a few of them are wrong and then have to spend a couple of hours tracking down the correct references.

All the Frills: Home Revamp Volume I

Over the last month or so we’ve been doing a lot of things with our house. The most major have been new floors throughout and a paint job. So for the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing photos of our redone space! This week, the main floor.

I seriously don’t wear these eggplant coloured pants as often as I should. I keep forgetting how cute they are, not to mention comfortable. I need to start leaving notes to my scatterbrained self to remind me of these things.

So Bright It Hurts My Eyes

I’m not going to lie, wearing a bold colour like this red dress made me feel a titch awkward and uncomfortable. But it’s important to push yourself out of your comfort zone periodically…and I added enough of my beloved black to make me feel a bit more at home in it.

All the Frills: Office Space

It’s terribly unexciting, I know, but today I’m sharing some photos of my workspace at my office – more specifically, the little corner of it that I’ve tried to make my own with a few photos and other assorted items. I feel it’s important to have that little space that’s just my own, given how much time we all spend away from home at our jobs. Have any of you done something similar with your work spaces?

Yes, I did frame the packaging from some screen cleaner. Because it is hilarious and makes me laugh every time I see it. Look how excited he is!

Can you tell I like to learn about queens and other elite women?
