We went out for dinner on New Year’s Eve, in celebration of my birthday since I worked late the night before. We went to our favorite Thai restaurant just a town over. This was also a first expedition outside of townlines for our new car. We are currently leaning towards the name Sebastien. RIP, Gord.
S. got me this gorgeous cashmere sweater for my birthday, and to say it is super luxe and soft is almost an understatement. He made sure to get my measurements right by taking note as we custom adjusted my new dress form a couple days earlier.

These lace tights are too classy to wear to work, but New Year’s Eve was a good night for their debut. They have been languishing unopened in my dresser drawer for several months. I got these boots about three years ago during spring sales. I think they were originally over $100, and I got them for about $20. A friend that was with me got the same pair. They are suede, and keep a nice balance for walking. They also have a cute bow in the back, and keep your feet moderately warm (well, with fancy boots you can’t be expecting to be super toasty always!). Unfortunately, I definitely can not wear these to work or health and safety would have my head.
Is anyone else noticing a lot of limits that their jobs impose on fashion? And I’m not taking extreme fashion choices here, like extreme sports. Or is it just our extreme jobs? Though I fail to see how my job necessitates extreme survival gear.
Note: I don’t wear survival gear to work. Though at my last job I did have steel toe boots and there was a safety footwear zone.
