I’ve been fortunate enough to always work in very creative/casual environments, but as I prepare for my first day of work today I hope to make a conscious effort to keep my work day uniform distinctly different from my weekend looks.  That means dressing up more relaxed basics with exciting accessories and balancing tougher pieces (see here leather motorcycle jacket) with classically feminine pieces (full or pencil skirts will do).  Business suit be damned.

Friday I checked out the local Mood Fabric store (a welcome sight after being spoiled with textile choices in New York) to browse/dream up future DIY projects, Saturday was spent in utter relaxation at Huntington Beach, and today I geared up for starting my new job tomorrow and (despite the weather forecast of 80-90 degrees for this week) picked up some new fall staples that will definitely come in handy as the nights get chillier.  I can’t quite get over the joy of bare legs in mid October and just a simple sweater in the evening to keep warm.

Today’s ‘Happy Friday’ blog post has a lot to celebrate (I am now gainfully employed as a graphic designer)!  With the job search out of the way, I can focus on the fun stuff – like how I’ll plan on decorating once we move from our sublease to something more permanent.  These looks from Lonny’s current issue sum up what I’m shooting for (comfortable couch, low slung bookshelves, moroccan style rugs, mix of art and pattern, and (ideally) lots of natural light).  Enjoy your weekend, but personally.. I’m really looking forward to Monday!
