Back in November, I wrote about election blues. I'm sporting blue today, but thrilled about the results of Chicago's election yesterday. I'm really excited about my ward's newly elected alderman, 30 year old independent Ameya Pawar. Chicago definitely has a rough political history, but it's refreshing when someone young who isn't a machine politician gets elected. Rad wrote about the attack of unions in Wisconsin and my home state of Ohio yesterday, and the GOP is waging war on women, so with all of that going on, it's nice to feel hopeful and optimistic about something in politics again.
Political stuff aside, I'm channeling my inner Style Underdog here with the shades. Not just so I, too, can look chic, but because the sun actually came out here!
So I have to admit, as much as I love this skirt, I had a really hard time styling it. Anymore, it seems like the trend is pencil skirts, so there's not a lot of examples out there of how to style a pleated A-Line skirt. Do you have any suggestions?
