A Trip to the Office

So even though I shut down my office quite some ago and got everyone set up to work from home, I still have occasion to venture into that deserted space from time to time to access hard copy files, process various things, etc (a lot of hand washing, avoiding other people who happen to be on campus, and trying to not touch anything unnecessarily also goes on).

This was one of those days. It was also a chance, for the first time in a while to wear some accessories (like a necklace). While I still get up every morning and get fully dressed and take a half assed pass at doing my hair and makeup for the day’s endless Zoom meetings, wearing jewelry was one of the first things I abandoned in this new reality and, I have to admit, it felt weirdly good to wear some again.

Haha yep, I haven't worn jewelry in so long! I did put some on last week to take photos for a collaboration that was put on hold for a while because of the virus.

Loving that pendant- jewelry is something I have abandoned in the quarantine, too. I'm looking forward to jazzing up outfits with accessories again!

How interesting! I gave up on getting dressed regularly years ago when I started working from home, but I've never given up jewelry - I always put on a fresh pair of earrings in the morning, and usually my rings, too. It's funny, the things we end up thinking of as essential, and the things we can easily give up. They're so different for everyone.

It's nice you get to go into the office! Ours has been shut down indefinitely - they did let us in a few weeks after it all started to collect stuff but said if it wasn't essential needed for your job stuff it didn't need collected, so I decided to leave my stuff there. Kinda missing the relative quietness of the office, compared to working at home with kids, haha!

I've been trying to wear my accessories more lately - like you said it's a little thing but really does make a huge difference! :)

Hope that you are having a nice weekend :)

Going to the office actually sounds nice... i never thought I'd say that at my current job.
I wear earrings and perfume everyday, it's pretty much what's left of me and my grooming habits.

It always feels great to dress up after a long hiatus of taking those fancy accessories out. Great styling and lovely necklace! :)

Stay safe! :)
