It is so very rare that I go to work in an outfit that I like, head to toe, and one that I feel good in.
Most work days, I've realized, I wear some version of the same thing. Black, grey, or khaki pants. A T-shirt and cardigan or sweater set. Material varies with the season. Boots or sandals, depending on the season.
Sometimes it's a new sweater. Or shirt. Or pants. But they're practically indistinguishable from the old ones.
Usually I look presentable. And, with the exception of some oatmeal blobs or other Jordan-breakfast detritus, I'm typically clean. So there's that.
I used to expend outfit energy when I went out in the evening. And I went ohttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifut a lot. So I would wear my fun clothes, think about accessorizing, really make an effort to look attractive.
Except, of course, for this one terrible date, where I was clearly trying to look less attractive because I was wearing my glasses, and anyway, why didn't I just go ahead and tell him what else was wrong with me? (Asshole.)
But we rarely go out. We stay home in comfy clothes. And the end result is, I rarely feel like I look remotely attractive.
I look dressed. But only because I'm not naked. I never look like I'm dressed well.Which is why I totally had to document today. Because it is spring! And I feel great in my outfit! I am wearing one of the pretty dresses from my Target spree! And super cute high-heel sandals. I am tall! And nicely dressed! This makes me happy!
OK, yes, I look totally weird when I take my own picture, but I really wanted to show you the cool detail on my new dress. Also, and even better, it has pockets!
