As Simple As It Gets

There are some outfits, no matter how simple, that you just feel absolutely confident in. Today's is such an example. Keeping the color palette classic (grays/browns/blacks), accessories to a minimum (a bag counts, right?), and choosing something with an interesting enough detail (twisted top), and voila! An outfit that I will for sure wear over and over again.

Morning at the Park

Remember what I said about the potential for sporadic blog posts while I deal with taking the Metro to and from work? Well, that really hasn't been happening. I'm probably posting a tad less frequently, but there hasn't been any prolong gaps between posts. The reason being... I've found a tripod solution in the form of a tabletop version!

Luckily there are plenty of ledges to be found during my commute, so it's almost as painless to set up as my regular tripod. My only must-have criteria during the search was a tripod that could handle both landscape and portrait orientations (turns out this single criteria weeded out most contenders.) The tripod collapses to only 7" in height and is so lightweight that I can easily slip it inside my purse with my other belongings. I've only been using tote-style bags for work because I'm often carrying a combination of laptop + lunch + umbrella + camera. Unfortunately that means all my smaller purses are sitting in my closet collecting dust... but that's a dilemma for another day.

Spring Tweed Jacket

I've been at the new job for about 2 weeks now. I won't say I've settled into a routine just yet, but am starting to get comfortable enough where I can go on instinct (not having to think) during my commute. One main difference I've noticed between this new project vs. my last one is the age group of my coworkers around me. This project skews a lot younger, so much so that I'm probably one of the outliers. And for the first time in my working career, I'm surrounded by a good number of females -- stylish ones, too! I met a girl in the elevator who wanted to know where I got today's tweed jacket from. When I happily told her, "Zara, and it's recent, so you can find it online," her face completely lit up. It made my day.

Ladies Who Lunch

Today's outfit is what I dub my "ladies who lunch" look. I've been playing the housewife for a couple of weeks before starting a new job. Unlike the last time, this change is on my terms (my 1099 dreams are finally coming true!) The only downside is the state of this blog. I'll be taking the Metro to the new job, so that means I won't be lugging my tripod and camera along. I'm not sure when I'll find the time and place to take outfit photos... weekends? Should I just stick to iPhone photos? Everything is up in the air right now, so just a heads up that posts will be very sporadic while I figure things out.
