Jeans: Current/Elliott (c/o Shopbop)
It’s been one of those days where I flit from one thing to another without much focus or direction. Well, that’s not completely true as I find myself absorbed in Georgette Heyer’s The Masqueraders, and am unable to do much else. Also, the commercial I was in is finally on the air.

Moving. Ugh. The past week did not go as planned, and for a time, it seemed like if it could go wrong it did. This post was supposed to happen a few days ago, but another Internet outage meant blogging had to wait. Anyway. This is what I wore to audition for an energy commercial. […]

However, a cheerful dress and whimsical necklace are a nod to new adventures right around the corner.
