Creature of Habit


In some ways, I'm very much a creature of habit. I once ate brown sugar & cinnamon oatmeal for breakfast every morning for four months. I have been known to listen to a favorite album for days on end until I am sick of it, and then, once I'm sick of it, I restart the process with a new favorite album. Heck, if inew life, I got a new wife and the family is fine - OH. Okay, so not all of that is true. Most of that is a Billy Joel song (inserting Billy Joel lyrics into regular conversations is also a habit of mine). I did get a new job, though, and along with that has come new people, new places to hang out, new scenarios, new new new. And new is good! And change is good, and I am very thankful for the new in my life in so many different ways.

In all of the new, though, there's a little itch in me for habit. Something to cling onto as I tread my way and get my footing in the newness of it all. I haven't written, crafted, or blogged very much at all in the past few months. I have the consistency of a job that I love, but personally I feel disorganized, or discombobulated, which I am so thankful is a real word. This blog post, taking outfit photos, putting on this outfit to begin with, may be a little step towards habit again. I'm also in a poetry workshop now with one of my good friends, so maybe that too is an attempt to reconnect with another old habit I don't want to lose.

A new habit I see starting? Wearing this shirt every day. I'd been hearing a lot about Everlane clothes, about their transparent business practices and their cool, easy look that I so badly want to embody all the time. This shirt is a lil cropped, real comfy, and pretty great for summer. Heck, if it wouldn't be weird to wear this shirt to work every day, I probably would.

Shirt: Everlane, Jeans: Levi's via Kohl's, Sandals: Saltwater, Bag: Gift from my dear Elanor





  1. Glad to see you again. :-)

  2. So excited you posted!

  3. I do a similar thing with music, I just binge listen and then move along and then come back haha.
    A comfy tee is the way to my heart :) Especially for work.
