Most days I wear skirts (obviously!) but I do change into pants when I go to teach my class, or perhaps for some other activity. I mentioned in a comment on day 97 that I feel this experiment has helped me to put better outfits together overall.
For example, Tuesday night I left the house at 6:30pm to teach my class. You can see that I’m wearing the same shirt and shoes that I posted. I just put on jeans and added this sweater.
The day before I changed into pants in the late afternoon after church. The weather got super-cold and it actually hailed a few hours later. I’ve never owned boots before this summer when I realized I’d need something other than tennis shoes to wear with skirts in the colder weather. So didn’t I feel all kinds of stylish for tucking my jeans into my new-to-me boots? Yes I did.
And if I’m feeling very frumpy, I’d rather feel frumpy in pants than frumpy in a skirt. Here’s a pic of me from 2 weeks ago. However, this is how I used to spend 4-5 out of 7 days of the week. I’ve always said that I dress just like Kristy from The Babysitter’s Club.
So there you have it. I’m glad that even when I do wear pants now, I’m able to wear them a little nicer than I was before. And I’m glad that skirts have become a normal item of clothing in my wardrobe. It’s not a religious statement. It’s not just for special occasions. And it’s not trying to be sexy. It’s just a skirt. A skirt for grocery shopping, preschool, parks, and life. It’s a piece of clothing that is exclusively feminine, and I like that we can wear it in the everyday.
Here’s what I wore today.
Have a wonderful day!
