Back to Workwear

I haven't posted much workwear around here lately because of two things:
  1. I was spending a lot of time working from home towards the end of the year.
  2. I lost a lot of weight and my workwear (esp pants) aren't fitting well

I haven't fixed #2 yet, but I have been heading into the office a bit more to kick off the year because of lots of 2016-planning meetings and Quarterly Business Reviews. And every time I've been wearing workwear, I've been throwing on my new favorite coat. 

Besides this coat, I've been drawn towards black more this year than ever before. In college, I worked at The Cheesecake Factory as a hostess for a while, and we had to wear all black, and it totally ruined black for me! So much of my closet became black, and I hated wearing it outside of work. Once that job ended, I had a revolt against black and didn't want to own ANY of it. I'm slowly working black back into my wardrobe, which I'm loving. Obviously I'm late to the game, but I'm totally okay with that.

This pair of ponte pants is super old and I'm actually not loving them in these pictures. Maybe its time to treat them more like leggings and only wear them with long, oversized sweaters and tops? Or maybe I was just posing strangely? Who knows...

I'm taking my camera to the shop for a much overdue professional cleaning. I should have done it RIGHT AFTER Africa, because so much dust and dirt got on it, but I have procrastinated big time. I'll do my best to plan ahead with photos, but I may be using iPhone photos for a while, too. Sorry in advance!
