when life hands you lemons...


It was a weekend of repeats. This is what I wore last Saturday. There's a better view of the t-shirt in the previous incarnation of this outfit here.



It rained the entire day but that was exactly what I needed. Forced to stay indoors I finally tackled my growing "to be altered/hemmed" pile. It is inexcusable how long I keep stuff sitting around, wasting away in that pile. There were some great items in there, including a perfectly slouchy yet slim pair of Theory pants and almost a week's worth of work trousers. It took the whole afternoon but at the end of it I felt like I had a whole new wardrobe. I vow never to let that pile grow that high again!

  2. Cool wrap bracelet. I like you wear this silhouette. I wish I could find a pair of slouchy slim black trousers that are machine washable...probably have to make the trek to the bigger zara, and then have those added to my to-be-altered pile. :/

  3. Now that you've done all the hard work of altering the work pants I would love to see another work wear post sometime soon.

  5. This outfit looks so comfy!

    I have a huge pile of work clothes that need altering, too. It's funny. I probably spend more time at work than not, yet work attire is always my last priority. Lol!

  6. I recently took a bunch of stuff to the tailors- it's such a great feeling to get it all back. It's like shopping but not. It's a no-shopping loophole!
