I wrote this post in December after a solid semester of working from home every Thursday and Friday. I didn’t hit publish on it at the time, but given world events I am now getting even more familiar with my work from home wardrobe. Even better, I’ve narrowed my work-from-home getting dressed approach down to a simple decision tree. Consider this my flow chart of what to wear in the morning…Continue reading “The search for reasonable clothes to work from home in: My virtual work uniform flowchart”
If you’ve been looking for ethical and sustainable work clothes I think you should look no further than Brass. They’re a fairly affordable ethical clothing brand and their pieces are more tailored than other brands. Plus, they have inclusive sizing, and tall sizes, so I have had more luck with them–making them a good Everlane alternative. I’ve reviewed a lot of Brass on this blog so I thought I would compile it all in one place–from the Brass Ponte Pant to the Essential Dress to everything in between–here are my reviews and photos of every Brass Clothing item I own, my advice for finding Brass on sale, and a little discount code!Continue reading “Brass Clothing Reviews: Every Brass piece I own!”
I found this pair of pants at Buffalo Exchange several weeks ago and I instantly LOVED them–after some googling I found out that they are the Everlane Straight Leg Crop and sell for $68. Not bad for a pair of dress pants. Here’s why I’ve found them to be delightful for work, plus how the straight leg crop pant and straight leg pant, Everlane’s new, longer version, compare!Continue reading “Everlane Straight Leg Crop Pant and Straight Leg Pant Review: How they compare”
This year is in the bag now and I am one part relieved, one part too exhausted to process, and one part screaming “why does anything about my life have to change?! It’s fine as is!” What can I say. I’m a reluctant mover. Plus my regularly scheduled exercise classes are over and I am just totally adrift without necessary endorphins. Onto the outfits…Continue reading “What I wore, what I read: May 13-17”

In the winter, I sort of look like a grayscale (almost typed Greyscale..too much GoT on the brain!) cartoon. But, maybe because winter was way too long this year, I am now finding myself craving more colorful outfits. The problem is that I don’t find pairing colors as “effortless” as picking neutrals. After browsing Pinterest for way too many hours, here are some colorful outfits I’ve put together lately:Continue reading “4 combos for adding color back into my summer outfits”
I am currently enjoying what we in dissertation-land call draft purgatory. You know, where you have sent a draft of something to your advisor, and they haven’t given you comments back yet. So you do nothing. For like a week.
Usually I love draft purgatory. But I have a lot on my mind right now, job market-wise, and have definitely learned over the last month that research is your only form of agency on the job market. You can’t control the jobs. The only thing you can do is try to graduate.
Anyway. Here’s what I’ve been wearing lately.

I’m flexing my styling muscles this week to try a new combo that I’ve seen on Pinterest repeatedly this season: layering floral dresses to make them stretch into winter.
It’s clear that dark floral patterns are in right now, and that makes the 90s kid in me extremely happy.
See how I’ve been styling my current dark floral dress below.Continue reading “Wearing florals for winter”
