I’ve got no crazy dreams to report, unfortunately, but I’ve got a couple of pantal-esque outfits to present.
Outfit #1: In which I embrace leggings
Tank & Leggings: Target
I’ve been slow to get on the legging train. I felt pretty confident that they wouldn’t work on me — that they’d cut my legs off in weird ways, making me look stumpy, etc… Now, I’m not sure they’re absolutely the best look on me or anything, but I’m pretty converted now as they’re super comfy and allow me to wear this dress in public. My mom, when she visited at the beginning of May, brought me a bunch of stuff from Joe (the Canadian department store brand), including this dress and the shirt in the outfit below. The dress is frankly a little too small for me both up top and down below but I love the pattern and it’s easily fixable with a cami, and tights or leggings. Tights are an impossibility right now but capri length leggings do the trick admirably.
Outfit #2: In which I cannot wear sandals for another day
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
This outfit was one that, without proper shoes, probably bordered on way too casual to wear into the office. Plus, it was nice to be able wear proper shoes for the day. I got these ages ago, right before I hurt my ankle earlier this term so this is the first wear they’ve had. I’m really pleased with them. I love a wedge and these have a rubber sole (which, seriously, why don’t all shoes have these??) which is ideal for someone like me who lacks basic grace and balance.
