Sensibility be damned

shirt, denim: H&M
shoes: Urban Outfitters
necklace: Banana Republic

It's so freaking cold. 

B and I bought a new (and very heavy) comforter last weekend since we didn't want to turn the heat up to a sensible temperature just yet. Currently, it's 65F in the house, I'm wearing 2 sweaters, and wrapped in a blanket. SENSIBILITY BE DAMNED (for just a few more days, I'm sure.)

In other news, I have been pottery-ing (potting?) and knitting like a madwoman. My job has been a lot stressful during this busy season, and I'm finding solace (and sanity) in yarn and clay. And of course, getting dressed, no matter how minimal the effort I put in outfit assembly. (Ps. I just wanted to show off my new fave necklace)

  3. I caved to putting on the heat weeks ago and it's not that cold. It is on a timer though so it's only on twice a day. Once in the morning when we get up and once in the evening just before bed. Sounds like you're coping with the stress of your job nicely. I wish I knew how to knit. Did you get your hair cut or trimmed? It looks cute. Hope you're keeping your batteries charged.

  4. It's always good to have something to take your mind off of work and stress. I've been doing crossword puzzles when I'm stressed out. Nerd times.


    Anyway! Your new necklace is cool and I love your glasses!

  5. I have the heat on, but only at certain times. Otherwise I would freeze where I sat. But, it's not too bad, pile on some layers and I'll be ok. You look gorgeous. Love the necklace :) xx

  6. Love the necklace :) We have a warm comforter, too, which my mom sent. The heat is set to 65 here, but it hasn't quite kicked on yet, despite on cold it is outside!

  9. Winter is definitely upon us, I'm conflicted about it but I won't be when snow comes around (BITE ME SNOWWW). You are such a great wardrobe picker outer (not a word, welllll, I'm using it anyway). The holiday seasons are rough aren't they? Why do they have to be so chaotic!

  10. You make all clothes look so good. I feel like soon you'll have a post where you'll be like, "I'm being mauled by a hamster while running a marathon while being melted by acid rain," and it will still look better than the days I try my hardest.

  14. Oh Rachel, stress and I are just not good friends right now. I've always been able to function very well under stress, but lately, I don't know. I think there's some anxiety in the mix. I DID get my hair cut in these photos, and since they were taken, I've yet again cut my hair! I can't help it!

  20. You are the sweetest! Thank you! But believe me, the days when I don't ask B to photograph me (and there are plenty!) I look exactly like I was mauled by a herd of hammies.

  21. You know what? It snowed today, but we're supposed to be back up to 60 in a couple days! SO INSANE! Yarn is making my world turn around these days. And I love your creations!

  22. I think it's the time of the year. The weather goes colder and it's darker for longer. I notice the same sort of issues with the horses I've been working with. They still do their thing but they're a bit more easily worn out and a little bit jumpier. The Chinese philosophies I've read correlate it to our connection to the earth and this is the season for things to slow down. We're supposed to slow down with it (which is really freaking hard to do when working loads) and nourish ourselves with things that grow naturally this time of year. Lots of root vegetables. Carrots, sweet potatoes, parsnips, all the good stuff. They also recommend avoiding sweet stuff and raw stuff this time of year in particular. It might be different to the way I was raised but I figure it's worth trying to see if I feel better from it. :)

  23. You know, I truly believe that this time of year, people should all slow down. It's a time to reflect, to assess, to plan, I think. and lots of sweet potatoes. So interesting about avoiding raw stuff. I am craving salads like no other, but I also want tons of soup!!!
