Is anyone else looking forward to getting a wee bit dressed up when the year starts? (Or, since you seem to start the year earlier in the States than in Canada, perhaps already enjoying the feeling of being dressed up?) Last week - I can't remember why - I had the opportunity to wear something slightly dressy. And I thought, I miss this! I don't get terribly dressed up for work - I'm not a suit-wearer, for instance. But I realize - after three months of wearing bumming-around clothes and dog-walking duds, beat-up footwear and, if I have to go somewhere, some blah cotton skirt - that I look forward to having to pull it together a bit. Pulling out those light wool trousers will be nice, and that shirt with the cufflinks. That kind of thing. And different footwear...I can't wait!
Also, I ended up having to while away a very long rain delay (as a spectator at a fastball tournament) in an out-of-town mall on Saturday. I bought this fall jacket (I did need a fall jacket) and cannot believe how much I love it. I want the fall weather NOW so I can wear it. (God, it feels weird to be linking to a major mall retailer that sure as hell doesn't need my free advertising...oh well...)
