The other day I was getting ready for work and put on what I thought was a pretty cute outfit. Red scarf in my hair, navy blue shirt, casual jeans, and my favorite red shoes. Casual but cute. My office, which is normally freezing, was an oven all week. But I knew I needed something warm for the trip from the parking lot to my office. Instead of putting on my favorite green jacket that I wear EVERY DAY (and all day since I'm usually freezing all day at work), I decided I should put on something else. Unfortunately I am sorely lacking on cute sweaters. So I threw on my sweatshirt and ran out the door. Besides, I'd just take it off when I got in the office.
Of course with my luck, the office was once again freezing. So I kept my sweatshirt on all day. Halfway through the day I went to the bathroom and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. What had been a cute outfit had morphed into something atrocious. I seriously looked like I was either going to go work in a garden or beg for money on the side of the road. It was bad. And I was actually working like this.
So tonight I decided enough was enough. I needed cute sweaters. So I used my Nordstrom gift card (at Nordstrom Rack, of course) and ensured that I would no longer 1) wear my green jacket every day and 2) look like a homeless gardener at work.
