A quick scroll through the Flickr shows that I haven't worn pants - not jeans or capris, but actual dress pants - to work since March 28th! MARCH! How on earth did I make it almost 6 months? Some of it was due to a little weight gain which caused none of my pants to fit, and I guess the rest would be due to a fairly hot summer. I have lost about 5 pounds since writing my wordy weight post, so I can finally fit into my "fat" pants. And as for the weather? It's 42 degrees as I write this, so pants are fairly appropriate. And when I pantsed up yesterday, it was only in the 50's. I swear, I'll never understand Midwest weather. It was almost 90 on Monday, and 2 days later it's dropped 40 degrees. But I digress. The point is, I've kind of missed dress pants. They can be so comfortable, and black pants just look so smooth and polished. You know, as long as you don't notice the dog fur all over them.
Thanks for all the photo tips and tricks in response to my post the other day! I took Kristen's advice, and set my camera to Portrait, and it ignored all the miscellaneous junk on my porch and focused on me. And it even knew to use the flash on the detail photo, so you could see the cute ruffles and shiny texture happening with this blouse. Oooh, shiny. It, in fact looks so cool that one of my co-workers asked if she could feel my shirt yesterday. Yep, we're a friendly bunch in my office.
