What I Wore | A Reliable Outfit Formula For The Office

author in a green turtleneck

Not a lot to tell you guys about today’s outfit except that I wore it because turtleneck + high waisted pants + basic pumps is always a winning look, and also because I could stuff all of these items into my gym bag with reasonable assurance that they wouldn’t get wrinkled before work. We started a new routine where we go climbing first thing in the morning and then I go to work directly from the gym, so I’m having to figure out a whole new routine and environment to get dressed in (in a locker room! in front of strangers! hope I like the outfit I picked out because I literally have no other clothes with me!)

I thought that my alarm going off at 4:45 would be horrible, but it actually gives me an opportunity to just sit in bed with a cup of coffee for 20 minutes or so while I wake up gently, quietly and by myself. I recommend it.

I even managed to get makeup and jewelry on at the gym! Woo!

What I’m Reading This Week:

I’m still plugging along on my 52 books a year goal. Last week I finished Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily and Amelia Nagoski, and Record of A Spaceborn Few from the Wayfarers series by Becky Chambers, which I had started as an audio book in the fall and never finished (audio isn’t my favorite way to read a book, so I frequently end up abandoning them…). I love a good space opera, and this was a very good space opera.

This week I’m all about romance. Specifically, feminist historical romance. More specifically, finishing up the novella collection, How the Dukes Stole Christmas and reading Sarah Maclean’s Never Judge a Lady By Her Cover, the fourth and final book in her Rules for Scoundrels series. Romance is a genre that I wholeheartedly endorse and defend, so if you ever find yourself thinking that romance novels are mindless drivel, please be reminded that the patriarchy works hard to reinforce that impression, but that the romance genre is actually really important and awesome.

Outfit Details:

Top: J.Crew Tissue Turtleneck, Moss ($29, wearing size XS, thrifted)

Pants: Vetta Capsule Peg Pant ($129, wearing size 2)

Shoes: H&M, old

  1. I was sad to see your Instagram is down, but then I was like “Duh, check her blog!”. I’m glad to see you’re still here! It’s weird how I don’t know you and you don’t know me, but when I realized your account was down I was bummed. I really enjoy your content and I’m glad I still have a way to enjoy it. Also, the more I see these pants, the more I want these pants. Can you fully remove the belt? I’m not usually one for tucking in my shirts and I think I would opt to wear them without the belt.


    1. That’s so sweet of you to say! I’m really glad you wanted to keep reading my blog. Regarding the pants, yes you can remove the belt! I wear them without the belt all the time 🙂
