The time I stopped posting can be directly related to the day work started getting crazy busy. I didn't realize that all of my blog reading and writing took place at the front desk, but all time for that was out the window (and has remained out the window, occasionally peeking in to see if I have a free moment, only to be met with a frazzled look of horror - my face's natural reaction to any interruption these days).
Getting home after spending eight hours staring at a computer screen meant I wanted nothing to do with my laptop at the end of the day, so blogs basically ceased to exist to me. As did taking photos of my outfits.
Summer was also slightly more forgiving of my schedule, but fall has been less kind. I get up before the sun and head to meet with my vanpool (no more driving bleary-eyed for this girl anymore! If anyone needs me between the hours of 6:45-7:45 a.m. or 5:05-6:05 p.m., I am most definitely napping), then head straight to the gym and get home looking nothing like a young professional and everything like a young just-got-her-ass-kicked-by-her-trainer-sional...whatever the name for that is. Then I shower and sleep and the process repeats, with only the general public and my coworkers getting to feast their eyes on my always on-trend outfits.
Ha (to the on-trend comment. Everything else is 100% true).
I do get dressed every day. So that's good news.
And lots of my outfits are super cute, aided by most of my clothing being more fall-appropriate than summer-appropriate, and also by the fact that fall is definitely the season with the cutest clothes.

I wore this outfit a few weeks ago when fall had just started to show its lovely face to the Pacific Northwest. I can't really explain my attraction to oversized sweaters, but I have quite the collection of them. I find them helpful when I'm wearing my favorite pants to work that are technically pants but at first glance appear to be really thick leggings...gotta keep it professional when you're the baby of the office, and leggings have no place in professional work places. Also? Leggings are not pants. Just in case there's any confusion about that (and I know there is).
So maybe I'm back, maybe I'm not...but I'm definitely wearing clothes. Don't worry. xoxo
P.S. I can update you on my never not entertaining life in a later post that I pinky promise will take less than two months for me to write. (Probably.)
