All the girls stomp your feet like this.


“How the heck do you… how… You always look so granny, but you don’t look granny at all!”

It was funny to hear a friend greet me with those words, since earlier this morning, I was just contemplating how to balance out my outfit, so as to avoid looking too “come hither.” As per my usual, I changed outfits about five times before settling on this ensemble. The bodysuit (blouse) I’m wearing just made everything seem too… well, too va-va-voom. And when I looked into the back of my closet for yet another skirt option, I spied these pale pink trousers. Aha! This is the top these trousers had been waiting for. Every other time I gave the pants a chance, I just felt a bit too matronly, and while I am a wife, I’m certainly not a grandmother. So back to the rear of my closet they went- until today, when I found the perfect balance between granny and holla back girl.

    you are totally rocking those pants lady! That hat adds a “certain je ne sais quoi”. I love finding forgotten things in the backs of wardrobes. One of my students told me I had the same sweater as his grandma today! :) i’ll take that as a compliment!
