The snow lately has not been kind to this blog or blogs like it. Not only has it been impossible to justify standing out in negative temperatures with snow blowing every which way for outfit photos, but it's also been hard to have any sort of inspiration when it comes to getting dressed. No matter what I wear, it'll be covered by a scarf and giant coat for most of the day, and it all still needs to provide some level of warmth and comfort. Plus, it's not like I'll ever know when I'll be taking outfit photos. It seems like the days I have the opportunities to are the days I hate my outfits, and the days I like what I'm wearing are when photos are out of the question.
Basically — and I'm sure many of you are in the same position as I am — winter is bad for bloggers.
With that, I apologize if posts are scarce these days and for my very un-inspired outfits you may see. Please, rest assured, it won't be like this forever. I'm trying to come up with more types of posts I can use, and this indoor shoot at my desk at work was another great idea from Mary. It's not my favorite outfit, nor is it my most creative, but it was functional for the day. Plus, you can get a small peak at what my life at work* is like, cluttered at desk at all. You can also see my wall of inside jokes behind me that I like to call art. Bonus points to anyone who noticed the "House of Turds" print-out behind me in the first picture, which my advisor left on my desk during the government shut-down. My office is the best.
While it's not my favorite outfit, I can say that I'm pretty obsessed with this dog belt that Born Pretty sent me. It falls off kind of easily, but it's worth it. I'll be damned if that's not the cutest belt you've ever seen.
Before I wrap this up, I'd really love some input from my readers and/or tips from bloggers also suffering from the curse of winter. What are some kinds of posts you'd like to see when I can't get outfit photos? Personal stuff, anything entertainment-related, more posts about up-and-coming designers or shops that I love? Anything new? I can use all of the help I can get. I'm struggling over here.
