I’m wearing one of my favorite color combinations here: gray, brown, and black, inspired by my Australian cattle dog’s beautiful coat. Cheesy wardrobe pearl: you can always look to nature (or your pet’s coat) for style inspiration!

outfit: white t-shirt and jeans for a productive sunday


just a quick outfit post here.  i wore this classic combo on sunday, and it just so happens to be entirely pre-owned.  it was a sunny but cool day.  i had brunch outdoors, did some grocery shopping for the week, put my clean laundry away, finished reading a book, and made my favorite vegan meatballs recipe from the thug kitchen cookbook that paired really well with my holy grail spaghetti recipe.  later, i changed into bike shorts for barre3 at home, which by the way, i need to do more often!  i averaged twice per week in april, and i really should be doing it 3-5x per week.  what happened to my motivation? since starting an exercise program for the first time in my life this year, i haven’t noticed any physical changes yet, but i do notice that i’m less winded by the stairs in my apartment building.  that’s still progress! i’ll keep chugging along.  even 2x a week is better than the no exercise i was doing pre-2018.  it’s a new month, and time to be resolute about exercise once more!  but anyway, i finished the day off by making the final touches on a poster i’ll be presenting at a conference later this month. it was a productive day, all in all, and maybe this no non-sense outfit deserves credit for some of that. sometimes when i have a particularly good day or bad day, i ask myself if what i was wearing had anything to do with it, even a little, and i find that often times it does.
