Looking past the blazer

Sitting behind a table

When I first started working for the government, I felt the need to look the part. You know… Regular office clothes – suit jackets with dress shirts and semi-formal jeans. I have nothing against this look – I still wear it sometimes but I did become rather bored with it. Because of this, my work clothes evolved to be less formal. The suit jacket was replaced by a more colorful blazer and the dress shirts became more quirky. With the […]

My Favorite Pullover

Last year, Eva asked me what I wanted for my birthday and as I saw the days getting shorter and the temperature falling, I told her a nice pullover would be perfect. See, I really like wool pullovers but finding THE right one is sometimes a daunting task. Eva however can knit very well. So she can make the pullover exactly how I want it.
