a year+ in the life of my evolving, offbeat aesthetic as i navigate being

Hi, I actually got some good light because I only worked half of my shift this day due to mom duties usurping employee duties and I was yet to be knowingly infected with the plague, but it meant I was home in the middle of the day instead of and the end of daylight at 4:30 PM or whatever it is until Solstice.

I was tired as hell, though, so another one of my work cheat outfits came into play. You can tell I’m phoning it in when I’m in leggings and a tunic and a red lip — it’s me wanting to be as comfortable as possible while being passable as work appropriate.

Really it’s all in the lipstick. Because you can bet once I get home it’s hair up, bra off, and fuzzy socks on.

Or, in the case of this day, it was hair up, latex gloves on, and a whole lot of bio hazard clean up, hence the giant trashcan. Because it was trash day and there was no way in hell I was going to let all those germs just sit and fester anywhere near my home a second longer than necessary.
