Pajamas through the Daytime

pajama floral

You gals have patiently listened to me blather on about my move for the past few weeks now and I'm happy to say that I'm settling in nicely. However, new town, new house, means having to find a whole new routine for myself. Like finding the local branch of my bank, figuring out the easiest way to get to the supermarket or locating a neighborhood bakery I like.

And dealing with a whole new work routine too. My company doesn't have a facility where I am now, just a satellite office that I only need to go part-time. So I spend a few days working from home and a few with new co-workers. Which means I technically really only need to get dressed a few days out of each week.

Nice in theory, right? Well, part of the reason I even started my blog way back when was at the time I was working full-time from home. Which meant I spent too many days in sweats or my robe, sometimes walking to the mailbox in the afternoons with my hair still uncombed and wearing the same clothes I slept in. I was sloppy. And style blogging was a way to make sure I got dressed for real each day.

So I find myself kind of afraid of sliding back into that same ole not getting dressed hole. Granted I care a whole lot more about fashion in general now (and have a whooooole loooooott more stuff in my closet), but don't see the purpose of sporting a jumbo rhinestone necklace or point-toed heels just to stay in the house all day. I guess we all better get ready to see a more casual Lisa (at least part-time).

But if you start seeing me sporting PJs through the daytime, tell me to cut it out! Yes, the irony of my typing that line with this particular outfit on is not lost on me.

Lighthouses on my Skirt

I was so freaked out about dropping the ball with the blog during this whole packing/moving/unpacking business that I made sure to be pretty diligent with my outfit pics in the weeks leading up to the big day. So much so, that it's now two weeks after we've moved into our new place and I still have a backlog of outfits from our old house to work through. Some of those outfits I really adored (like this one I am wearing now) so I hope you don't mind me showing off an ensemble a few weeks old. This outfit, features one of my fave old school J.Crew prints - lighthouses!

Dropping Waists

Yes, I did like romping around in the striped version of this dress so much that I had to get it in a solid hue as well. Drop waists don't usually work well for a shortie with stocky legs like myself, but this dress fit and hit me at the right places. What a nice surprise for me and a fun cas look for summer!

Double Stack

double gondola stripes

I finally scored the original gondola stripe skirt on Ebay for a song a few weeks back so of course, I had to pair it with the blouse in the same stripe. Red, white and blue again - I can't beat this combo.

Have a lovely weekend, ladies!

Currently ... from July

Currently ...

Reading Graceling. Think Game of Thrones with a literal ass-kicking female lead. Yes, I can't seem to get over the YA fantasy genre but so far this has been a fun read.

Nesting. During my last visit to Target, I actually spent more time perusing couch pillows than discount dresses. Maybe there's a bit of hope for me in the home decor arena yet.

Eating Chipotle. Chicken burritos will always be a perpetual face-stuffing favorite.

Watching House Hunters. Though honestly most of the potential home owners kind of peeve me out. They often get stuck on real superficial stuff like the color of a wall or the type of appliances in the kitchen - those are easy, relatively inexpensive fixes! And the people who have champagne tastes on Boone's Farm budgets ... could I possibly be hate-watching?

Confused about my hair. Should I keep growing it out because I've never had real long hair before, or trim it back to a more manageable shoulder-length? Or shoot, be brave and bob it out again?

Drinking LaCroix sparkling flavored water. Where have I been? This stuff is cheap and delicious.

What are you ladies currently into?
