I had grand blog plans for December 1 – non-food plans too – gift guides and self-reflection and more writing about life. I knew today was the first day of Reverb #10, a month-long self-reflection blogging circle (that is over 1000 people now!) sponsored by the lovely Kaileen Elise, among other. The prompt for today was actually something I have been meaning to write about all fall – a word encapsulating 2010 for me. My word is vibrant, as there have definitely been many moments this year I have felt that way. The problem is that tonight is not one of those moments.
At the risk of sounding shallow, I am more in the mood to talk about clothes than self-reflection. In fact, I really want to talk about things like blazer cardis:
I am loving this as an alternative to a jacket for work – I bought it in both black and gray, though the website only has the black one right now, I have seen both in stores. With tailored black pants and a long-sleeve black top underneath, these jackets are surprisingly put together and professional for a knit cardigan.
Here is a more embellished version from Anthropologie, though I am not loving the vines.
I have also been eyeing corduroys. I am loving these for weekends – I picked a pair up for $30 this past weekend:
And while I could not find these at stores, I have a pair coming in the mail (also for only $30). I am wondering if I will like them in person:
So while tonight my grand blog plans may not be quite as grand as I had hoped to, I am hoping to write more regular non-food-blog posts this month. I suppose clothes are a good start. Good night!
