Now these are office trousers

What I Wore to Work Today: Tuesday, July 5, 2011
Blouse: Mall store I don’t remember several years ago
Trousers: Goodwill, tailored
Shoes: Target

I recently realized that my stable of work-appropriate pants had withered to two pairs.  One is wool and unbearably hot and sweaty during the summer of 1,000 degrees.  (I’m exaggerating.  The hottest it has been this summer is 118 degrees, not 1,000.)  The other pair is, um, well, kinda tight.

Goodwill had a pair of gray pinstriped trousers that seemed reasonable enough.  I hemmed the bottoms, narrowed the hips slightly, and sat cross-legged in my cubicle chair all day, relishing the modesty of pants.  Ah, pants, I remember when you’re all I’d wear to the office.

Pearls equal sophisticated

What I Wore to Work Today: Thurs, June 30, 2011
Dress: Ross
Cardigan: Target
Shoes: Target
Necklace: Claire’s

After deciding that this dress and its tshirt material aren’t professional enough for the office, I ended up wearing it anyway one day.  The ubiquitous cardigan, my now-go-to office shoes that I will buy in a nude-ish color soon, and a fake pearl necklace classed it up enough for me to think I was doing just fine.  Just fine.

A cardigan? Get out!

What I Wore to Work Today: Tue, June 28, 2011
Cardigan: Goodwill
Tank top: Goodwill
Skirt: Goodwill, refashioned
Shoes: Target

I wonder what percentage of my work outfits involve a black cardigan of one kind or another.  20%?  30%?  If only there were some kind of picture collection archiving the data so that I could analyze it…

And that, my friends, is how procrastination works.  One minute I’m getting ready to open the GRE math workbook for some last-ditch preparation for the (hopefully last) test on Saturday, the next I’m transcribing clothing data into an Access database I’m building from scratch.
