I live a casual life. I don’t go to an office. I don’t live in a city. I rarely have need to dress up. Actually, I’d draw odd glances if I did. But I still like to have fun with what I wear. I don’t have to live in blue jeans and hoodies just because half the town does.
Last week running about town I wore some of my ‘crazy pants’. The ikat my BF has dubbed icky cat, which totally makes me smile 🙂 Wore them to shop for uniform pants and shoes for a new job I’m starting this week. Struck out in town at Kmart and TJ Maxx. Went online for them. But I also ended up meeting up with a GF impromptu for tacos, so it was nice to not be caught in grubby duds.
Later that week I went on a movie date with my BF to see Hunger Games at a matinee. We grabbed a quick bite at a taqueria first. I ended up hitting the grocery store afterwards, while he visited at his mom’s. Ran into a good friend I hadn’t seen in a few years. Again, glad to be presentable for the chance encounter.
Funny, my BF thought the blue python velvety pants were more crazy than the ‘icky cat’ but I thought they were lower contrast, so therefore more subdued. It’s all relative, as neither pair I would call subdued!
Both pair of pants are from last fall/winter season but both open weave sweaters are new this fall. I figured I may as well wear these printed pants whenever, wherever, before they become outdated. Yes, most folks are not running around in loud printed skinnies, but I don’t mind sticking out a bit. It’s when I start to look like the crazy lady who didn’t realize what decade it is that I’ll start to question them! 😉
This week is all about uniforms, as I start the new job at the pet store, and have 2 more shifts of banquets. 7 shifts, 2 doubles. No time for crazy pants this week. Just black, black, black. Yawn.
