Weekly Capsule 12.2: Dark Flowers

After the last week of dressing like it’s fall, I’ve decided to bring out some floral prints and lighter colors for this week. And then what does the weather go and do? Start cooling down, of course. But I’m not annoyed, actually. I always prefer colder weather to warmth. I only have to put on my flower-embroidered sweatshirt, and I’m done.

This sweatshirt is one of the items that I wear a lot in real life but doesn’t make it to the blog as often. It’s such a focus-pulling piece that there are only so many ways of styling it, and I believe I’ve featured them all. Ah well. It makes getting dressed easier, that’s what counts.

Capsule Outfit #19

As you can see from my post yesterday, we just had a cold snap. Well, maybe not exactly “cold” at 75 degrees. For us that’s positively chilly though. It won’t last long – it’s going back to 80 around Wednesday – so I’ll bring out the cardigans and sweaters when I can.

Sorry for the short post, but I’m neck-deep in scripts (November is always a busy month for us, I don’t know why). Bye!

Office Party

I don’t have to go back to work yet, but there is a New Year office party that I can’t get out of, so this is what I wore. It’s still skewed a bit young-looking, I think. A dress would be better, but I was too lazy to figure out what to layer with a dress. I guess I got a bit rusty after 10 days in nothing but baggy sweaters and old jeans.

Honestly though, I think I’m going through another winter style rut (even though winter is barely here at all). So far this season I’ve mostly worn three to four pieces each of tops, bottoms, and shoes. It’s not like I don’t have anything else, but I always reach for those pieces because styling them doesn’t require a lot of thinking. I may have to do a remix challenge to rediscover the rest of my closet.

Swamped

I have 2 scripts to read, 5 one-hour episodes to rewrite (that’s 45 pages each), plus a ton of movies to subtitle, so here’s a simple, simple outfit. Please excuse me while I crawl back into my hole/desk and start working on my carpal tunnel syndrome.

Typhoon Update

We’re still feeling some leftover effect of Typhoon Haiyan, though in Hanoi mostly it’s just been some rain. The typhoon did hit some parts of Vietnam, but it mostly brushed our coastline and the damage was nowhere near as bad as in the Philippines. The ironic thing is, when it was still out at sea, everybody in Central Vietnam was preparing for it to hit them, and then it decided to go up north instead. I can only hope that after an extremely rainy fall, the weather’s calm down enough for some nice mild winter weather.

P/S: Nope. There’s another storm brewing just outside the Pacific. If it does hit us, it will be the 15th typhoon of the year. Hurrah.
