Please ignore (or excuse) the faux coy photo: I was making derpy faces in every other photo, and this was basically my only option. It’s a cute outfit that probably deserves better. I wore it on a day when I was technically on holiday, but came to the office to escape the kids get some work done. Actually, I was escaping the kids so I could get work done, because the whole working-from-home thing? Not working out so well for me. We don’t currently have a dedicated office in our house, and getting holed up in my bedroom does not fool the kids in the least; they want Mommy to come out and play now. On the plus side, the (actual) office was incredibly quiet (between Christmas and New Year, it’s a veritable ghost town) and I got to wear my Fryes to work. Yay.

  1. Love the color of this cardigan. I really like going to work in that weird time between Christmas and New year. The whole Lab – and its instrumentation – only for me! No distractions! I get a lot done.

    • Yes! I feel the same way! It was a very productive time – I almost wish I could switch a regular work day for a weekend day every once in a while, just to get some of that uninterrupted peace and quiet.

    • The boots are pretty great, I won’t lie. I have been wearing them a lot. Darn those Fryes for costing so much money because they do make such nice boots!
