I started a new job on Monday, and it's been zapping the energy I usually keep reserved for blogging and other such self-indulgent activities. Since I'm on a computer most of the day, fiddling with words and layout, sitting in front of a screen some more does not necessarily seem the most inviting of prospects when I get home all square-eyed and spent. Instead, I find myself just wanting to snuggle on the couch with the kid and the dude. Go to bed early. Read Wide Sargasso Sea. Sleep. Realistically, I probably need to cook something or clean something or fix whatever practicality. Maybe even go for a run? But these are new beginnings, and it's probably gonna take some time to adjust.

These pictures are from last Saturday. The forest location is pretty random. We went to a birthday party in the sticks and this is what we passed along the way. This is also what I wore. It was a 1st birthday, so I decided this was a perfect occasion for dressing to please my kiddie TV presenter alter ego: Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby D. I'm starting to really appreciate the red tights. I think they're incredible against my thrifted Designers Remix skirt and Docs. But then, I'm also beginning to discover that more or less anything looks amazing against that skirt. And the Docs for that matter. But that's not really news. Conclusion: happy about my wardrobe. Not entirely sure about the dimensions of the thrifted H&M blazer on me though, but fuck it: I'm happily seeing red here!

i wore this to a job interview and got the job

Although I want to dress like and be everything like Fiona Apple just wants to feel everything - and in spite of this fantastic account - I admit to toning it down for work. Thus, I find myself preppifying my grungy propensities with a sharp, button-up Ralph Lauren shirt. Everything is second hand, except the belt and sunglasses.
