1. i've mentioned this in passing a few times over the last few months and my last couple closet cleanouts have reinforced this, but i am over wearing color. it's a little weird because my job is pretty heavily focused on color combinations. when i am not busy at night being a superhero or vampire, i design the interiors for educational buildings. i spend a lot of time getting finishes and furniture to be the perfect combination of cheerful and identifiable without being distracting or busy. lately i've been on a kick of using lime green/magenta/blood orange or fire engine red/light slightly-greenish blue. yet i find myself wearing more and more gray tones. i have a pretty serious case of "you can pull that off, but i would never wear it" when it comes to bright colors. (that was me saying that awful phrase to a building, just FYI.)
2. i wore this last friday to early morning starbucks fun time and casual friday at work with no external meetings. i'm definitely still a big fan of using pointy toes and a blingy necklace to dress up a seriously simple outfit.
3. how did i not have gray jeans until recently? okay...yeah, more gray...see #1 above.
