Seeing Stripes


As much as I love my outdoor blog photo sessions, the current weather has made it impossible (even for me) to bear the elements – the weather is dipping to the -20’s and -30’s with the windchill, so that means I had to really layer up for work. I find it fun to see how many layers I can put on without looking ridiculous and/or bloated- the trick is to always cinch with a belt.

This is what I wore to work today – I believe over the knee boots can  have their place even in a conservative workplace, but it is all about how you style them. Here I have layered a turtleneck under an a-line dress and topped it with this striped sweater. I added over-the-knee boots because I liked the look of the skirt being a little bit longer than the boots. 

I do love how the sun makes shapes and shadows in the room, and also on top of one of my favorite Andy Warhol reproductions from Z Gallerie – one of many things Tom and I thoughtfully purchased for our first home together as a married couple. It is fun to look back on those times and see how far we have come and how much has changed. Everything always looks so different looking back. Last weekend, I went through the past two years of photos from my camera and multiple iPhones and organized them all in a very long photo book on snapfish.com – I don’t ever get around to putting real pictures in albums so I find photo books a huge timesaver. This year I’m also going to do the 52 weeks 52 portraits challenge where I take a portrait of my son every week this year. I’m almost a month in and only have one portrait so far… but I will catch up – I can’t wait to put that album together and look back on it years from now! #feelingblessed
