click clack go the train tracks...

Or, my shoes.

My mother was somewhat.... disgusted at my "home for Christmas" wardrobe.

I believe at one point she cried "don't you own a pair of pants that look like they belong on a WOMAN!!!???!!"

So here I am. Trying out my new duds. Feeling grossly over-dressed... because the north, and my office is no exception, definitely takes the whole "business casual" idea to heart.

Yesterday I eased into the process of "dressing for success" by wearing cotton dress pants. And today I've gone all out, fancy pants and pretty shoes. While I'm a little embarrassed by the clacking noises I make down the hallway to the break room (funny how, this time last year I reveled in that sound... marching through Carleton's tunnels...) I also love how sleek dress pants and fancy shoes look together.

I'm so posh.

Keep it up. You'll get used to it. You should send me a photo.

My brown chuck taylors were just returned to me, and I am a similarly happy lady.

lol - I have to say, being a teacher (and still a university student at heart) being able to wear comfy clothes (aka jeans and hoodies and berks) is really nice. Especially since I usually come home covered in glue, glitter, paper, marker and little kid handprints. Much easier to wash clothing that can be thrown in the washer than dry-cleaned :-).

Kennie:

not a single thing I own is dry-clean.

But apparently could have used an upgrade :P
