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.
