I promise! I went on a bit of a blog hiatus. I realized that other things in my life needed top priority at the beginning of this year, mostly personal matters and a lot pertaining to just myself.
I am still taking outfit photos, so I will have some new content for you soon. I am also hoping to add different kinds of content, although I am still trying to figure out what exactly that will be. I plan to be back up and running sometime in February, so be on the look out for new posts!

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! I may be posting a bit about my Christmas a little later, but for now I'll just continue with the usual Wear I Work post.
It really doesn't seem normal for me to stick with only two colors per outfit. But, it seems that I have been doing that lately. And, despite my love for color, I am really starting to enjoy outfits that are much simpler in the color department. This outfit is one of them. And the last outfit was one of them, too.
Normally, I like to keep this sweater on the dressier side, but on this particular day, I wanted something that would be work appropriate, yet somewhat casual. Having a piece like this sweater that you can dress up or down is crucial for my closet. It allows you to limit the amount of clothing you have, but your outfit options are limitless!
On a side note, Mr. M affectionately calls this necklace my 'Mister T. Starter Kit'. Gotta love husbands.
Do you have a favorite dress up/down piece?

I have no idea why I did not think of this sooner, but I now officially have a Facebook page officially for Power Tools and Thread. I am still working out a few kinks, such as getting a nice general profile picture and just figuring out how the whole thing works. So, please bear with me in these early stages! In the meantime, head on over and 'Like' it!

You can't really see it in this picture, and I have not gotten good at taking detail photos yet, but there is a subtle animal print on the tights I am wearing. Considering that the rest of my outfit is rather conservative, the tights made me feel a tad like living on the edge. I'm such a rebel.
I am still afraid of trying colored tights. Don't ask me why. I'm sure the answer is something purely irrational. These animal print tights are as different as I will get right now. And I am happy with that.
Do you like to wear colored/patterned tights? I'd love to see how you wear them!

I came home a bit late from work this day, and I was hoping I would still have some good light. Little did I know it was the perfect time for the setting sun to stream in and blind me while I tried to capture a decent photo.
This was a casual work day for me so I made the most of it and wore practically every item in my closet that I thought was most comfy. I think it worked out rather well. Granted, a tightened my belt a little too tight at first, which definitely was not comfy. But, that was quickly remedied.
