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.
See what I said about wearing grey all the time? It’s been freezing around here, so when I saw these fleece-lined pants, I decided to snatch them up. They’re wonderfully warm, but styling them is another matter. This is my best attempt, and even then, it doesn’t look quite right. Something about the combination of these pants + beat-up boots makes me feel like a chimney sweep. I mean, if I switched my leather jacket for a tweed coat and my circle scarf for a neckerchief and added a newsboy cap, I wouldn’t look out of place in a production of “Oliver!”, would I? Does that make sense? Or have I listened to The Decemberists for too long? Does that make sense?
