My mom has been on the lookout for a pair of purple pants recently, so I picked these up along with another pair at the thrift store yesterday, figuring at $2 a pair, I might as well give her options. When the weather turned a bit cooler today, I thought, what the heck, I'll just wear them once. After half an hour, it was clear I'll be keeping this pair for myself (sorry, Mom!). So much for my generous intentions.
I've been having so much fun rediscovering all the clothes I have stored in the attic up here, including my 'Miami Vice' blazer. I must have worn this white old lady blazer to work at least three times a week last summer; it just seemed capable of elevating every casual summer outfit to something at least vaguely office appropriate, and today it inspired several members of Chris' family to ask where I was going 'so dressed up.' Apparently there's nothing like cropped sleeves and sharp shoulders to make you look classy!
