The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
I’ve had several people ask me how I can get away without owning any shorts, especially during the hot, humid summers here in the South. I can’t even tell you exactly why I won’t wear shorts, except maybe that I just don’t like the way they look on me, and I hate the way they feel when I sit down. Weird, huh?
I love shorts on my style blogger friends, but not enough to buy a pair. Cropped ankle pants are as radical as I’m likely to go in the pants department this year.
The lovely Lynn who blogs at Dylan’s Dresses did a post earlier this week about dressing down in tee shirts, skirts, and comfy shoes. That’s what I usually wear on hot days instead of shorts: tees, tanks, crinkly broom skirts, dresses, sneakers, and/or cuffed skinny jeans.
I don’t usually share outfit pics on the weekends, in no small part because I like to run around in bifocals and no make-up, you know, to give my skin and my ever-decreasing aging vanity a bit of a breather, but I love this $1.99 dress I thrifted last month so much I wanted to share it. It doesn’t squeeze me anywhere, and it has pockets. Boom. Perfect run-a-round dress.
The Absent-Minded Professor is camping this weekend with good friends from graduate school. I’m not a big camping fan, and The Teen is even less of one, plus she is recovering from a mild sickle cell event, so we stayed home and appreciated air-conditioning. We also had a movie date, Taco Bell and The Amazing Spiderman.
The Teen is terrified of spiders but smitten with Andrew Garfield, so all in all it was a very romantic, chick flick kinda Saturday night. Also, I think my life may now be complete with the introduction of dark chocolate Kit Kats.
What’s your fave treat to snack on at the movies?
P.S. I linked up with Two Birds’ Inspiration Monday. Thanks, Beth, for suggesting it!
