We have executives in the office this week, which means I’m trying to dress more…office-y. I used to dress that way all the time, so I know it’s possible, but I also used to be 35-40 pounds heavier and have an entirely different wardrobe! I just don’t have a lot of slacks to choose from. In fact I have these and the black pair you’ve seen me wear before. And I don’t love the way these fit. I got these right after I lost all the weight and I was a good 10 pounds lighter (I got good and skinny there for a couple months, but it didn’t stick. I like cake.)
But over all I think it works. I didn’t really see any snow, I counted 3 flakes. But it is really cold for Dallas, 30 something. And I am still refusing to wear a coat. I mean, I leave the house, take a few pictures, get into a car with heated sets, go into a heated office and then get back into the car with heated seats. It’s not like I’m exposed to the elements all that much…and I didn’t have a coat that matched.
I had all these exciting PLANS last week, and this week I’ve got nothing. And I am super over the Olympics. I could not be more bored. I thought I was going to enjoy ice dancing but it was worse than ski jumping, or bobsled or whatever sport it was we watched where they threw themselves down a very slick runway. I am just not a sports girl. I am enjoying the time to read my “Spike” comic omnibus though, so at least there is that!
This outfit was also built around a piece of the jewelry Mikal brought over.
I have big plans to wear that with a grey v-neck tee and jeans, but I couldn’t wait, so I spent quite a bit of time trying to put together something that it would look good with that would also be appropriate for this week at work.
