That's me at my fanciest.
These days I am considerably less fancy. The stress of my work situation and the adoption process has led to an overall toning-down of the fancy. But still I feel most comfortable, and most myself, clad in clothing that most of the world--and certainly most of my hippy/hipster city--would deem "Business Casual with a slight Filthy Librarian bent". Not so sure this lends itself well to my new life.
So my challenge to myself in the next few weeks is to practice being casual. I will wear jeans intentionally, and I will even attempt a t-shirt or two.
If you see me out and about in yoga pants please do stop to congratulate me. I welcome your suggestions in the comments about how to dress casually. Totally serious on this--I don't even know where to start.
Oh--I promised shoes didn't I? These sweet morsels are by my favorite brand, Miz Mooz, and they have become my workhorse shoe of winter. The whisky color is more butter-scotchy than this picture shows, and they go with EVERYTHING. I love them so much I call them my "awesomes" instead of my "shoes".
And look: on sale! You are welcome.
