The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
This skirt was the first really colorful item I added to my “funeral chic” closet after my weight dropped, and I had to buy bottoms two sizes smaller (on a budget, so a-thrifting I went). In my mind, I call it “The Kermit Skirt.” I’ve struggled to style it, but can’t part with it, because it’s so comfortable and it has pockets. (In my closet, having pockets is like having a Get Out of GoodWill Bag Free card.)
Fridays are usually my business nightgown or skinny jeans day, but I dunno, this skirt just screamed to be worn. (When you’re this green, you scream everything.) And I had been mulling over parting with this sort of glittery green tee I bought for $4 at The Rugged WearHouse when the Teen was in the fifth grade. Like six years ago.
Like any thoughtful stylist who carefully waves her design magic wand over her super-edited and perfect closet…wait, that’s not me. What happened was I thought, “Heck, why not wear those two weird green items of clothing together?”
Yep, that’s what happened.
I’m pretty sure green is supposed to be a good color for real and faux red heads, although I’m loving purple these days, too.
Anyway, no one is up to take pictures when I leave the house at the crack of dawn, and when I get to work in full Kermit mode, I notice my tripod is not in my bag. Which led to another round of crazy self-shots obtained by sitting the Nikon on various objects and trying to jump into the frame.
I almost skipped this outfit post all together because no one reads blogs on Fridays, but not only am I in this thing for fashion transparency (sometimes literally) and proving you can buy $4 shirts for work, but I am in it to show: a) everyone makes fashion missteps, or b) this whole Kermit thing kinda looks good.
My week has been so rough, even with skipping Wednesday, I feel like I could eat a whole chocolate pie by myself.
