Today I planned to stay home and revel in my own familiar surroundings for the first time in a week. However, it was brought to my attention that we had almost no food, so we had to go out for a short walk and pantry-replenishing (and Haribos!). In order to do that, I had to get dressed. Well, hey:
As I said some time ago, I don't want to make this space about my recent weight loss and new, healthier, eating habits. However, this morning I suddenly realized that I am at about the exact same weight as I was in my senior year of college/ beginning of graduate school, when I was at my smallest.
What does this mean?
It means that I ventured to put on pants that I don't think I've worn since I still lived in Philadelphia, which was until May of 2008. And, what do you know - they fit. Now these pants' muddy neutral tones might not be suitable for the dead of winter, I actually bought them in early 2004 (January, I think), so I associate them with cold weather. I've always liked them - my severely unsuitable ex even called them "bitchin'." So I knew they must be cool. I like the pattern -
- which another unsuitable boy compared to curtains. And, more importantly, I was pretty psyched to put them on again. With black accents and caramel-colored boots. Since these pants have a range of neutral colors (and patterns!), I can pretty much pair them with any other major neutral, as I did today.
I also did some semi-crazy pattern-mixing with wearing a hairband with black polka-dots.
Crazy! ... Sometimes life just doesn't go as planned, eh?
