I hope everybody is still doing well in isolation. I guess I’m luckier than most people – luckier than most of my co-workers, even – that I can work from home easily (it’s not easy teaching a class on cinematography from home, that’s for sure) and that I’m used to it. However, working from home by choice is different from being forced to work from home, so I still feel a little stir-crazy after a while. In an attempt to liven things up, I decided to add some funky socks to my work-from-home outfits, making them more blog-worthy. The colorful socks lifted my spirits, and taking photos got me out of the house (even if it’s only into the garden) and making the days seem more normal.
I had an outfit planned for today, but then it started raining right before I left, so I had to put together an entirely different outfit – these pants because they’re going to dry quickly if they get wet, these shoes because the patent leather is waterproof, and this top because it was the only thing I had left that doesn’t require ironing. Of course, taking outfit photos is out of the question, but when I got to work and glanced at the hallway mirror, I thought the outfit didn’t look half bad, considering I literally threw it on five minutes before I left home. So when I got back in the afternoon, I decided to grab a few quick photos. I guess sometimes it’s best not to overthink an outfit.
This is a really simple outfit, but it’s been a while since I wear this silhouette – lately I’m all about the wide-leg pants and loose-fitting tops – so I quite like it. I’d like to think that it is a modern, real-world version of the witches’ all-black look in Discworld – hence the title, which, incidentally, is one of the last four Discworld books that I still have in my to-read pile (but I’m planning on rereading them in anticipation for the Watch mini series, so it’s OK.) It’s October, so a witch-inspired outfit is appropriate, right?
