Contrary to what you might with reason assume, this is not a post about why my heads looks so big, nor on how I need a haircut to prevent the dreaded Pinhead Ponytail, nor, (but thanks for asking) am I updating you on my tendonitis and arm brace. No my friends, this is another panegyric to the joy of layered neutrals.
I’m wearing a tan corduroy jacket from Société Anonyme (brand. I love the spot-print t-shirt dress), a black ribbed UNIQLO tee, Eileen Fisher lantern pants (not the cropped ones) in Graphite, and Chanel captoe ballerinas (pre-owned).
Below, some outfits you’ve seen before. 2011. That’s over a decade past, my friends.
Why such fondness for shades of brown and black? Maybe it’s because my coloring straddles cool and warm tones. I do best in “neutral” shades of lipstick, AKA Could Go Either Way. Or maybe it’s a certain hypersensitivity to color stimuli. Your guess is as good as mine.
Posting these old photos reminds me how heartening is a blog. (Maybe Instagram is the same for active users?) It’s nice to have a record of moments when I enjoyed my look. Two years largely inside, augmented by a congenital love of comfort, has left me with many memories of Sweatpants Lisa. It’s nice to gussy up.
Have a wonderful weekend, and do your stretches.
