Folks, it's officially Cold. I have to start remembering to have gloves with me when I leave the home and I'm starting to think wistful thoughts about hats. Dammit. It's okay. Now that I don't have a dress code, I can wear boots (and pants) every damn day of the week and actually keep warm, as opposed to strategizing the best possible tights+skirt+shoe+temperature combination.
(I keep meaning to write a post about my previous job's dress code and why it made us so antsy. One day, people...)
Anyways, today was a super low-key day. My husband and I decided to meet up with one of his colleagues and her husband and child (who happens to be one of my tutees) for Mexican food (mmmmmm...) and chatting. With my outfit, I opted for comfort rather than pizzazz:
WHAT could be so interesting in my husband's closet?!
There's...really not much to say about this. I still love wearing leggings (the corduroy ones from HUE are so awesome and WARM), but once I look at the photographic evidence, I feel self-conscious about my thighs. In person, I look down and feel sassy and good about myself, but once I take my pictures, I'm all, "Hi, She-Hulk, thanks for stopping by." I also think I need to take a class on proportions.
Also, I'm feeling a bit in a rut. Because I really don't leave the home that often, I've been really relying on my comfort clothes (tunic+skinny pants of some sort+boots) when I do leave the house, because my outings tend to be quite banal. I think it's time to fancy it up a little for next week's tutoring sessions. Right on!
That being said, as mentioned earlier, I did like my outfit quite a lot "in person" rather than on camera. I know that this happens quite often to me: fellow bloggers - and people who document their outfits - do you ever get that as well? I really was comfy and mobile and, in the end, it was the perfect outfit in which to curl up while watching the "Great Migrations" walrus (and other animals) episode a few hours later...
[This might be a good moment to mention that I adore nature documentaries. And walruses are my favorite animal. When you combine these elements, plus show a mommy walrus giving her one-day-old pup a swimming lesson, you get a perfect Saturday afternoon.]
