back to work, school, life
I'm back at work for the school year. It feels normal, ya know? After so many years of following the school calendar, the transition back to school in the fall is not as hard as I sometimes expect it to be.
I love dressing for work. This outfit is simple and it's just the direction I seem to be headed with my wardrobe right now. The top is a silk top from J. Crew. The pants are off-white linen from Talbot's (a couple years ago). This is perfect for right now because my office is hot hot hot! I really need to get a fan, but either way sleeveless is the only way to survive.
What's new in my wardrobe: I'm transitioning (sort of) to a capsule wardrobe concept. I've been so inspired by Jennifer L. Scott of the Daily Connoisseur. She explains the advantages of a capsule wardrobe and why it is so freeing. I was so intrigued by this concept that I took most of my wardrobe out of my closet and bagged it up and stored it elsewhere. You guys--having fewer clothing items feels amazing. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it--even as just an experiment. And be sure to jump over to Jennifer's site and watch her videos about her capsule wardrobe. So inspiring!
