Today, I think I might go on The View and Gretchen surely deserves her moment in the sun as well. While I still can’t tell you what I’d wear to be on a talk show, I can tell you what is becoming my cool weather uniform.
Now, that’s not PRECISELY what I have on today, but it’s the general idea. I saw another good question on a blog yesterday (my apologies… I can’t give credit because I don’t recall!). If you could only wear dresses or pants, which would you choose and why?
For me, it would depend. As long as I could have tights and boots and could wear leggings under skirts to walk the dogs, I’d go with dresses. I love jeans truly, deeply, madly doooo, but I can’t wear jeans everywhere, and when cigarette pants go out of style again, I won’t have pants that fit, no matter how much time and money in alterations I could spend.
I keep saying it, but I also love dresses because there’s nothing to coordinate. Okay, I couldn’t have slapped on my favorite Lilly P pank, cream and lime scarf with today’s rusty red sweater dress, but it’s far less stressful than trying to find a blouse and a sweater or jacket that work with a separate bottom of any sort. And since I’m not much on reinventing the wheel, I don’t get creative and will wear this precise combination again over and over until it’s warm enough for me to switch to shirt dresses and flats.
Really though, I’m glad I don’t have to choose one or the other. Taking Sissy to the vet in anything skirted would be a fiasco and prove to the world that I lack any sort of natural poise, just as there are also places I’d never feel comfortable wearing pants.
