I wish I could say I’ve been radio silent the past few weeks because I was on a secluded island with kittens, puppies, and Tom Hardy, but no. I was packing up all my shit, wondering how it’s possible to own so much clothes and still have nothing to wear, and gleefully anticipating my shorter commute to work. My arms hurt from lifting boxes and moving, and my legs are killing me from the stairs at Porter Station* but I am now a resident of Somerville and no longer living in my parents house! It’s practically like I’m an adult.
I’m loving the new place, and when it isn’t a total mess I’ll share some photos. In the meantime, you’re stuck with photos of me. In a shirt that *could* be Missoni if I wasn’t perpetually broke and a scarf that I love so much I want to be buried with it.

*Porter Station is approximately 12,000 feet underground and you have to climb approximately 257,349 steps to get in and out. Boston-based folks know I’m exaggerating only a tiny bit.
When I get bored, my hair is usually the first to suffer. Hence my new haircut. Hey, it’s easier than plastic surgery right?

As a Capricorn, I’m supposed to be a bit of a control freak. I’m not. It sounds like a lot of work. I prefer to pretend that I don’t care about how things turn out because if something goes wrong, it’s not my fault. That’s much healthier, right? Despite it being the holiday season, I’ve been feeling a bit stressed.
I do find that new clothes help with stress, especially free clothes! This shirt and jeans are from The Swapaholics clothing swap I mentioned before. I know, it’s not the most exciting outfit, but I spent the day walking around and wanted to be comfortable.
I went to the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) and left with this cool…thing. It’s supposed to be a table runner- there are matching placemats available. But currently it’s hanging on my bedroom wall and looks great. I don’t have a dining table, anyway.
MAC chartreuse pigment. My sister hated it, but I’m sort of obsessed with this shade.

I wore this outfit…Monday? It was a long week and this truly was the only outfit worth photographing. It would have definitely looked better with heels, but what can I say? On a rare occasion, comfort wins over style.

This outfit is from last week, or maybe even the week before. Definitely an attempt to make my boss happy and wear business casual. I may or may not have twirled around in my office when no one was looking.
In other news, now that it’s getting colder Chloe kitten has started cuddling with me at respectable hour. No more booty calls for me! As a friend on twitter said, I’m on my way to being the main chick.
tshirt- Lord & Taylor
