I've been feeling quite comfortable in my clothes lately so that meant it was time for a little change. I guess not really a change, but I needed to push myself a little further outside of my comfort zone. Wearing all black is not novel for most, but for me it is unfamiliar territory. Although monotone, all black tends to attract a lot of attention. It was fun and exciting to wear. I felt very European, or at least like I had some street cred.

Unfortunately I forgot how early the sun goes down here around this time of year and SSBF and I were frantically trying to get these in on Friday before we lost too much light-mission not accomplished. As you can see they turned out a little grainy and overexposed in some cases (ahem #3, I liked it too much not to share). Oh well. At least I have the end of daylight savings to look forward to. Otherwise it was a low key weekend. SSBF and I watched the Michigan State-Michigan football game, ate at our favorite restaurant, and of course watched the Phillies.

How was your weekend?
