Never Say No To a Cape

Clearly I can’t say no to a cape.

Masked

Somewhat inexplicably, I’ve made it this far into the pandemic without one of my 10 masks (including some Bravo themed ones that only I find amusing) making it into photos.

Cape Season

After a few days of cooler weather, I got excited and busted out my cape. I totally jumped the gun because it turned out to be a beautiful, warm, sunny day and I was baking in this thing but I regret nothing. I’ll just pop it back into the closet for a few weeks and hopefully by then we’ll be properly into fall weather and I can get fully and comfortably into my cape.

All the Frills: The Earring Collection

Turns out I’ve apparently been collected climber earrings these past few months … maybe I have a problem?

The Key Necklace

I totally forgot to remove my work key from around my neck for these photos. Oops. Owing to the pandemic of it all, my office is open but we remain closed to the public aside from a few narrow windows of time so the door to the office is largely closed and locked, meaning that I have to have my key handy at pretty much all times. Hence my new “necklace.” My co-workers and I come into said office on a revolving basis (wearing masks when needed and always keeping lots of space between us (all of us being fully vaccinated helps too)) and work the rest of the time at home. It's a strange schedule...

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!

The Oddity of It All

There’s something that still feels fundamentally strange to me about the fact that every morning I dress as though I were going to the office, sit through a couple of morning Zoom meetings in my work wear, and usually find myself in sweats by around 11 am each day. And yet, here we are.
