These pants are gone and the shirt is going in the giveaway basket when it comes out of the laundry. I like how it looks but when I wore this week (this week in real time, not still-2013-picture-time) the metallic threads irritated my skin. Maybe somebody else won’t experience the same sensitivity.
Stay strong, friends, we’re making progress! We’ve made it to October, a new month! Eventually we’ll be looking at 2014 pictures and then finally, god willing, 2015!! I am going to start mixing in quilt pictures too, because I transferred photos from my camera and found the stack of finished quilt pictures. I forgot that my assistant gamely spent 20 minutes holding quilt after quilt so I could start sending them off. Which I did for a few. But, uh, there are definitely 6 quilts folded neatly on my dining table right now. Hey, at least they’re folded. They were in a messy stack for the few months before that.
2015 has been about taking care of little tasks that have been waiting for a long time. Pretty soon I’ll be at a point when I can make decisions about the direction of this blog, which has a devoted readership of at least one person (hi Mom!). Also, maybe I can figure out why some of the pictures aren’t showing up Feedly. (Googler Reader, still missing you…) Until then, we’re working through the backlog.
What I Wore to Work Today: July 7, 2013
Dress: Target, shortened
We all make choices that we look back on and say “You know, I wouldn’t make that same choice again”. This picture is one of those choices for me. I can’t say I would wear this dress with that belt and those shoes again. Shortening the dress a few inches? That decision I stand by.

This was my half-birthday! 31 1/2! Yee-ha! Six months from then, and several weeks from now, I turn 32. Yep. If I’ve learned anything from the internet, it’s a special, special age.

Hockey is back! The first regular season game was/is October 3 against the Vancouver Canucks. I’m listening to the game as I type this on Thursday night, so it’s like time travel that this post isn’t going live until Saturday. Don’t tell me if the Sharks win/won, I want to be surprised.

Pants: Goodwill, hemmed
Belt: Target, came with pants
Oh hey, the sunlight on the balcony means this was taken in the morning before work. That was ambitious of me.
The ol’ dead basil planter. Looks like I still had it there in April. I have since moved it, pulled the dead plants out, and have plans to put a not-dead plant in it any day now. Yep, any day now…

Skirt: $1 Goodwill, refashioned
Belt: Gift from Sarah
Shoes: Walmart. (Yes, I know.)
Let’s take a quick poll, which is a new button since I re-started blogging and I should give it a try. I’ve been back, what, only four days now? And Google Reader’s passing in July surely decreased the blog time of others as well, yes? So, the question: Are you, the person reading this right now, my mother?

In September I cleared out a significant portion of my wardrobe and excess stuff lying around, hidden in boxes or behind closet doors or under piles of other stuff. I started a new job the day after Labor Day and I decided I wanted to take the opportunity to spruce up my wardrobe a little. This skirt was among the items that was given to a very nice family on a farm with lots of space to run around.
When we get to more current pictures, there will be some new pieces too. I went shopping and spent more on a dress than I ever have except for prom and bridesmaid dresses. From Ann Taylor! Like a real financial services industry professional!

I have two hours until the deadline for a short essay on why Microsoft Project 2010 is an excellent tool for meeting project goals for a new class I’m taking on Microsoft Project. The actual writing, editing, and submitting of this essay will 20 minutes maybe, and even though it’s a minor commitment here I am posting a few backlogged photos to Rabbit Style News instead because it seems like an insurmountable task. Both are on my To Do List, so either way I’ll get to cross off something.
