Since this is the last week before we change the clocks, it is also quite dark in the mornings, thus eliminating that option as well.
I decided it would be a great time to experiment with planning my outfits and photographing them over the weekend.
I must admit, there are some advantages to this, optimal lighting aside, I now have this weeks looks waiting and ready to go - no night before or morning wardrobe crises await me this week. And considering it took me 40 minutes to dig out the red scarf I wore today, I'm glad I got it done ahead of time.
Over all, it did take me the better part of the day to decide what to wear, put the looks together, photograph them, and then change and do it again. But I did have a chance to get the things washed that I needed, was able to hunt down the red scarf, and take all the time I wanted to craft my outfits.
And- AND I put together an inspiration calendar (of sorts) for November. I was feeling inspired by Fab Finds Under $50. I admire dedicated organization. Mine turned out to be kind of a huge mess. But I worked really hard to choose outfits that I think I can really create just with what is currently in my closet. I'm not going to post it (because it's an embarrassing mess) so I'll just post the photo when I create the look.
For today; one of Lucky Mags month of outfits features (fitting, no?)
It occurred to me that I am once again, lacking important basics in my wardrobe. In this case, solid long sleeve tees for winter layering. I have three. Navy, black, and grey. But the grey doesn't even really count, since I've had it for about 10 years and it has a few small stains and a little hole in one sleeve.
I had to wear a red cammi, as it was all I had in red, but those thin little spaghetti straps under the jacket were leaving me feeling rather under dressed for the now 40° weather. This is a problem I should fix with a trip to the Gap. Soon.

My post title is a quote from the book Julie and Julia which I thought was hilarious. And I couldn't help but laugh as I thought about it on my way to vote this morning. I was wearing my thrifted London Fog trench as well!
