June 2014 Outfits

I wish I had some great insights to offer for last month beyond noting that Hannah’s fingerprints are a constant presence on our mirror.

June went fast. Hannah had three weeks off from school before starting the summer program, and now suddenly she goes back on Monday. July 4th has come and gone (and we had a great one, more on that later). The weather went from getting away with long sleeves to straight-up tank top and flip flops weather.

May 2014 Outfits

I didn’t even get half the month of May in photos, but to be fair we were out of the country for part of that time. And I didn’t take any outfit photos while we were away. I get a pass on all the yoga pants and stretchy jeans I wore on vacation because CHEESE.

April 2014

Here are a few things about April that I thought about while putting this month’s collage together:

  • I forget about this project a lot, and April was definitely a regression into lots of yoga pants (those would probably be the days missing photos).
  • I have really, really been digging striped shirts since I was pregnant with Hannah, after a lifetime of avoiding them.
  • I need a haircut (scheduled for tomorrow!). Too many ponytails.
  • It’s already May 7th, and I’m just getting to this post. Lots of THINGS happening here.
  • I miss wearing dresses, but not that white eyelet dress (purchased for a specific purpose, not to be fabulous).

March 2014 Outfits

I’m a week late, but here’s the group of outfits I wore in March. In March I learned that I desperately need new jeans, so that is currently being handled.

I also missed about a week’s worth of photos last month. It was a busy time; Hannah’s second birthday (which was really wonderful), finishing up the four-month-long web design course I took, and working on some very cool new professional adventures for myself. Those adventures include a complete overhaul of this site, which is currently in the works. And I’m really thrilled about it; this blog’s last facelift was four years ago. And this won’t just be a facelift; this site will look 100% different. I’m really hoping to have the new site up by the end of April. Fingers crossed!

February 2014 OutfitsSo this was February. I wore a lot of boots and a lot of slippers. And, true to form, a cardigan in more than half of these photos.

I didn’t capture every day, there was slacking off around my birthday when I got sick. But, this is what I wore. I’m hoping that by the end of March some warmer weather clothes will come out to play.

January 2014 OutfitsSo here’s the first (half) month of my project to motivate me out of yoga pants. A few things: a) I’ve decided it would be easier to use my phone for the photos this time around, but as I do not have the steadiest of hands I’ve got more blurry photos than I anticipated. I’m working on that. b) There are a couple of these outfits that I absolutely hate, but I did not know that until I saw them in photos. So, kudos for learning stuff! c) Cardigans are still my friend. d) I really only wear, like, 3 pairs of shoes during the winter.

2011outfitsSo in September of 2010 I started taking photos of my work outfits after leaving one district and starting in another (this was the job I just left last June). I kind of just wanted to see if I could go a month without repeating outfits, but I kept it up. Then in 2011, I took a photo of myself almost every single day; the results are the above photo. This turned out to be the year I became pregnant with Hannah, so the outfit photos became a diary of my growing baby bump. I stopped the photos after she was born in March of 2012 because, you know, newborn.

But last week I’m pretty sure I wore yoga pants 5 out of the 7 days. And turtlenecks, and sneakers.

This must stop.

Halloween was a total bust last year thanks to Sandy. I loved last year’s costumes but didn’t really get to show them off, so I was pretty determined to make up for it this year.

I wrote a post for GeekMom over the weekend about the launch of Phillip Lim’s collaboration with Target. Then bright and early Sunday morning, Hannah and I ventured out to Target for the 8am opening.

There were about a dozen people in line for the opening, and by the time I got Hannah into a cart and over to the clothes women (and a few men) were just picking the racks clean of everything. But, we did manage to get some great goodies into our cart.
