An anonymous commenter had this request:

I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for those of us who work at home. I am lucky enough to do so, but it means that 3-4 days out of the week, I don’t leave the house and only have contact with other people online. As a result, I tend to wear comfy t-shirts and pants most of the time and my nicer things hang in my closet, rarely getting worn. There are times when I really feel stuck in a stay-at-home wardrobe rut, but the fact is, no one is going to see me and I need to be comfortable sitting at my computer all day. Any suggestions on how to change up my home office uniform? read more

Gracey the Giant wears lightwash double denim

Oh, and this:

9.17.14 scalloped skirt, shark tee & Splendid booties 2

Man, those were the days.

Unfortunately, they don’t seem to be so loosey-goosey with the dress code here in Pittsburgh.  I start my new job Monday, and at the interview for that job, they mentioned slacks as appropriate attire.  Which made me laugh because, well, I don’t do slacks.  Of course, they said skirts were fine as well, but even I don’t want to wear skirts and dresses all the time. read more
