Winter has arrived in the nation’s capitol & while I couldn’t be more thrilled for the crisp air, holiday season & smell of log fires drifting through my neighborhood, it also brings daylight savings. Meaning it gets dark an hour earlier. Meaning my photog & I are chasing the sun on a daily basis in efforts to capture outfit posts. I love you winter however, I’m not thrilled about you stealing my sunlight. It’s proven to be a blogging nightmare. Hence, the change of scenery!
Let’s get back to [workwear wednesdays], shall we? In my time, I’ve realized I’d much rather wear dresses than pants [which I’m working on thanks to Cyber Monday] which means tights. Stockings, tights, hos, whichever term you prefer – they are a must in the winter months in a formal & conservative workplace. I know, I know, we can meet for drinks & tell our dark tales about them but there’s just no way around this one, ladies.
