Ahhh, the beloved shirt dress returns. I had to pile on the underlayers to make this dress tolerable today – and even then, I was a bit cold – but I’m stubbornly dressing for the weather I want instead of the weather I’ve got.
Since we’ve been talking style rules this week, I’ll tell you that I’ve read about a dozen times that matching your shoes to your belt, or shoes to handbag, or HEAVEN FORBID all three is totally “out,” taboo, bad, wrong, and utterly laughable. At least, according to the celebrity style gurus. But I just don’t care. I like the unity of grouped accessories, and wear them with pride.
In fact, I’m just about out of business cards and toying with the idea of adding “Mayor, Matchy-Matchytown” to my title.
Oh also? I’m trying to grow my hair out so that it’s long enough to pull back, which will make biking season hella easier. And I’ve noticed that in this bizarre limbo phase, my bad hair days photograph beautifully and my good hair days photograph horrendously. If you saw me in person today, you’d think I had on a fright wig. (OK, not really, but you catch my drift.)
