Limited Time, and Reading My Mind

26.1.15

Apologies for the lack of photos today.  There are legitimate reasons.

One being that I'm very picky with photos and therefore dislike the majority that Andrew takes when he takes my shots.  I prefer to tripod self-timer it, because that way I get exactly what I pictured in my head.  It's very hard to get someone to read your mind, I'm still working on it.

Two, it was so freaking cold outside that day.  I had only about two minutes worth of fortitude in that wind and weather and as we all know, good photos take time.

merci

p.s.  You can totally tell in that full picture that I'm freezing my butt off.

Lately, despite my sheer love for them, I've been wearing very few dresses.  The fault I believe lies in the discomfort while I was ill that has carried over subconsciously, and the general Winter malaise that tends to set in this time of year.

Plus, it's damn cold!  That alone is enough to chase a girl away from tights to the double layers of tights and pants.  Plus, the abundance f cute pants and rompers in my closet doesn't hurt.

No worries, the dresses will reappear shortly. I promise.

Trying But Not Too Much: Events That Aren't Too Fancy

I had the pleasure of meeting up with a girlfriend for an exclusive fashion show preview. Quelle beautiful fun!  It was a fairly intimate event that didn't call for the most glamorous of get-ups, but still required a bit more effort.  So skinny jeans, thigh high boots, and a sequined top seemed like the perfect way to say that I tried, but not too much.

As much as I love the fact that my daily life calls for super casual, I love to dress up.  So when given the chance I'm all over it.  I would've worn a freakin' ball gown if not for the fact that it's Winter, and therefore freezing.

Merci.

Throes of Winter

Now that we're in the deep throes of Winter, I'm drawn to simple, monochromatic, and cozy.  Layers, layers, layers - that's the name of the game.  Chunky knits and things that pile on to add warmth.

Basically, I'm turning myself into a big marshmallow puff ball, if possible.

This day I was on my way to assist at a shoot all day.  So the mantra of the day was comfortable, movable *to lift and adjust gear etc* and no jewelry *you don't want it getting caught on some lever*

Since I couldn't use accessories to brighten my wardrobe, I went for what Andrew calls 'loud' pants.  I love a good paisley.  Much more so than a floral, and this grey and cream pant was perfect.  They're a bit big *they were on sale and the size left was a touch bigger than mine* so once I break them in it'll need a good belt, but I kind of like the baggy boyfriend cord look once in a while.

No surprise, I would love to be in a Star Wars film, and put my sword skills to good use with a light saber.  That dream is right up there with being in a Star trek show/movie, and fighting Jet Li in a scene - any scene.  If I could achieve all three of those, I could die right there and then a happy woman.

In the meantime, I'll snap up little things like this hooded blanket scarf that allow me to play subtle Jedi knight dress up in my daily life.

What's that line? "If you build it, they will come."  If I wear it, Yoda will come?

That time where it gets so cold that I can barely stand leaving my house.  That time where I literally run outside for two minutes to grab outfit photos because that's all I can bare.  Yup, it's that time.  Where I laugh and shake my head at my own stupidity for going outside at all.

Happy Winter!
