Darkness Falls

I hate Daylight Savings Time. I'm not going to get into it, even though the AP English students just recently wrote rhetorical essays on the topic. It's archaic and depressing. I always feel my SAD rearing it's ugly head in October. Why does it have to get dark so early? While I love nothing more than cuddling up each evening to the official Full House wiki hours before bedtime because it's pitch-black outside, as a fashion blogger DST presents a major challenge. When can a blogger take photos when you leave at dawn and don't get home until twilight?

I do get the occasional early evening photo shoot, like this one taken at about 5:45 Tuesday evening, but I have to warn you that for the next few months, you will be seeing a lot of my front yard and driveway. It's just too hard to find daylight hours to do much of anything else. However, I promise to mix things up every once in a while and shoot in the back yard!

I really wanted a pair of coated skinny jeans last fall, but I thought they were too trendy to spend money on. Then Old Navy reintroduced them this season, and I just couldn't resist any longer. I've had these jeans two weeks and I've worn them half a dozen times, which is pretty impressive seeing as how we can't wear jeans to school anymore. They are as comfy as regular jeans, but definitely feel "dressier" to me, you know?

I think it's all about appearance, in this case. I'm technically not allowed to wear jeans to work either, but I have several "dressier" rinses (very dark rinse, black jeans with an odd texture to them, a pair of light, almost Montauk red jeans) that are okay because they don't really obviously look like I wore jeans to work that day. It's more about looking like you still took some serious care about looking profressional, I think.
I end up having to take all my outfit photos during my lunch break in the fall and winter. It's great, except for if it's sunny the light is terrible. Ah, well.

I hate DST too, it's so depressing! I take all my blog photos on the weekends now to avoid the darkness dilemma.

The coated jeans are so pretty, and I love the way that top fits you. :)

Those coated skinnies are fantastic. And I LOVE a pop of leopard in an outfit!
