As much as I love the extra hour of sleep I got from daylight savings time last month, I don't love the fact that I now have to drive both to and from work in the dark. Aside from being generally depressing (who wants to spend all of the daylight hours in a cubicle?), it also makes outfit shoots very difficult! Lately I've felt like I'm falling into a bit of a rut with my outfits, so I'm actually kind of excited for the snow to start falling - I think the change of scenery will do me and my wardrobe good.
Thankfully, I've been able to keep busy - very busy, in fact! As I mentioned previously, Chris and I were in charge of putting together a special DIY section for the local magazine we both write for (On-the-Town), so this weekend was full of writing and taking photos. I've always admired DIYs I've found online, but truth be told, I had done very few of them myself...until this weekend! Technically, doing this project meant that I had to work all day on my day off, but it felt wonderful to try something new. If I get permission from the editor, I hope to post some of the DIYs here on the blog.
Last weekend, we also had my mom's vintage fashion show, which went great! It's always a little bit hard to tell how well these shows go when you're backstage, but I heard lots of lovely comments. I wore a wedding outfit from the 1880's, and - my favorite - a gorgeous lace wedding dress from the 1940's. Sadly, I neglected to bring my camera...so I think I'll hold off on giving you the full recap until I can get my hands on photos from someone else. It's not the same using words; my mom's dressesat really must be seen to be appreciated!
I hope you all had a great Monday! Do you have any fun plans for the week?
