I told Vivian I would do this, even though my clothes aren’t nearly as hip, so here we go:
Skirt: Ann Taylor
Shoes: Payless! Don’t judge – they’re solid shoes and I won’t cry if I scuff them.
Today I kept getting asked if I was dressed up for something. To those of you who remember me from a place where there isn’t 100 inches of snow in a season, you know that this is everyday gear for me. Unfortunately, we do get an average of about 100 inches of snow here in Rochester and so for about half of the year, I am relegated to cheap boots (though still with heels) and jeans that I don’t mind getting caked with salt. Thus my coworkers know me as a graphic tee and jeans kind of girl. Sigh.
While we were in Boston, I realized that here in Rochester, most people dress like the weather – sloppy and dingy. I have gotten caught in the trap of not wanting to stand out just because of what I’m wearing. Well, no more! I am going to be me again!
Also, you boys need to realize that dresses are actually the easiest way for a girl to get dressed quickly in the morning. If you hang them up right, they don’t wrinkle and it’s a whole outfit in one piece. Just toss it on, grab some shoes, put on a pair of earrings in the elevator, and you’re good to go. Heck, I even have a second ear piercing that I never remove so I always look sharp.
