Hello friends, I hope Sandy passed you by safely! The hurricane largey spared the DC area; my neighborhood didn't lose power or got any major wind damage (my roof sprung a leak but we quickly fixed that).

Onto the outfit, today I wore a professional taboo: the cropped top. I thought there was no approapriate way to make one work for the lab (office) but that's nothing I couldn't solve with a pair of high waisted pants and a blazer. I wouldn't normally be so adamant about wearing a defective top to work but Alexander Wang knows what he's doing with a tee - it feels like a second skin so once I put it on in the morning there was no way I'd take it off.

Have a great weekend! And yes, it rained all over my bag just as I started with the photos. Poo.

A quick hello, folks, before heading out on a date with Tom. I unfortunately cannot find the time to keep up with the blog as often as I said I would because I'm lucky to get home at twilight. I don't see the work schedule abating in the near future so I'll squeeze in posts as often as I can. I could, in theory, replicate the outfits I've been wearing throughout the week on the weekends but that would depend on how motivated I'll feel to dress up just to take everything off in 15 minutes.

I hope your lives have been a bit less hectic than mine - but I wouldn't have it any other way!
