The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
While I think everyone must own galoshes, I don’t highly recommend them for office wear, and therefore never intended to wear mine all day long.
I was just going to skip posting today’s outfit altogether, since I somehow got galoshes stuck on my feet, like nine hours straight, but while recording The Paralegal Voice podcast with Vicki Voisin, I admitted I had them on all day, and she said there must be pictures. Well, I did tweet one this morning as a joke, but they were supposed to be temporary.
When The Teen and I left the house this morning, great sheets of hard rain were pounding the pavement. Driving her to school was like slogging through the longest car wash rinse ever. My first stop was a large medical center, which had lost all power. I was asked if I wanted to stay and see if the electricity came back on, but I sort of had a panic attack because the lobby looked like a post-apocalypse bunker, complete with wailing people. Um, nope, no thanks, just write my name down on that pad, and reschedule me.
When I got to work, it was still raining so hard the only items I could get out of the car were my purse and my umbrella, and I still got soaked. I figured I’d go back out and retrieve my real shoes when the rain lightened up. Which it never did. We had a lot of guests at the law office, and I did get some funny looks, especially from my bosses.
On the fashion front, my beloved J. Crew cropped ankle pants clearly took a beating today. I’m wondering if I bought them a size too big. I hate to be squeezed, but I don’t think I took into account the amount of stretching out some pants do when you get them wet and then sit all day.
Eh. Life goes on. So what’s the worst thing you’ve ever gotten stuck wearing an entire work day?
