I was getting dressed the other morning and thought to myself, "Self, remember when you wore pencil skirts all the time? Wasn't that fun?" That was in college, when i was working as a teacher's assistant. I was teaching class from time to time and had meetings with students and wanted to look at least a little professional, even though the job didn't require business dress. I loved a good, stretchy pencil skirt. Aah, the glory days. Well, that's when I decided that even though I'm toting a chunky guy (22 lbs, ohmuhgarsh) around with me, a pencil skirt would still be an okay choice for a sushi lunch date. And it felt good. And also, I texted Kate as we were making plans and said, "No laughing at me allowed, I'm dressed head to toe in blogger stereotypes." I almost even wore a chambray and top knot with this! But then I toned it down a little bit.
So that's a lot of yammer about an outfit. But maybe as an outfit blogger it's okay to be outfit-obsessed for a post? Or always? Okay.
