I hate to follow such a boring formula, but life > blog reality. This weekend was packed with things to do. My theater photographs are done but I haven’t had time to post that, and when I did plan some time to shoot an OOTD, I ended up being called off somewhere to leave. Here I am making do with strange backgrounds while I was out on a “road trip” for work this weekend.
I took a examination for my work at this location that had several seemingly empty houses next to the administrative buildings. This house was on a slope so everything is just a little crooked. It’s been cooler lately in Southern California (thank goodness!) and we’re still waiting on some desperately needed rain. On Saturday, however, all we got was clear skies and a brisk wind, hence me hiding in my coat with the collar turned up.
This Lands End Luxe Wool Walker Coat is holding up really well. Remember my coat dilemma of 2013? I ended up keeping both. I should have really kept this one and sent back the Boiled Wool one which is pilling now. This coat, on the other hand, is warm as all get, doesn’t pill, and has a pile of pockets. Hope it keeps going for a few years yet!
After the exam was probably the best part of the weekend. I didn’t think I was going to have time to celebrate the Lunar New Year; I wanted to go to an outdoors festival but my exam date took precedence. So I called some friends and did the next best thing we could do: eat good food!
I wish you all a successful and prosperous Year of the Horse! Now to ride off triumphantly into the rest of the month. What have you got in store, February?
