Me: I think I'll wear my Flirt skinnies today.
Me 2: All you wear are Flirt skinnies. Everyone is going to think you own two pairs of pants.
Me: Hmm. I do have more than one pair of those, but you're right, no one will be able to tell the difference from the pictures.
Me 2: Of course I'm right.
Me: Maybe I'll wear my Real Straight jeans and blue velvet flats.
Me 2: It's raining.
Me: Well, okay, there goes that.
Me 2: What about your stone-colored skinny jeans?
Me: Yes. Yes, that might work. But what to wear with them?
Me 2: How about a patterned sleeveless blouse, under a deep-v tunic with a cardigan?
(Pause in the dialogue while I'll get all of this on, taking frequent breaks to rest, because my cold has sapped all of my energy).
Me: Oh my hell. This looks terrible. What the hell is the tunic doing?
Me 2: Yeah, you probably should have tried that on at the store and not have removed the tags.
Me: That's really helpful advice. Sort of like telling someone to close the barn door after all the cows have escaped.
Me 2: Also, what the heck is up with your thighs today?
Me: I don't know. I think they're planning an attack on Chinese Taipei. And this tunic does nothing but show them off.
Me 2: Not good. Not good at all. You need to find something else to wear.
Me: Thanks, Captain Obvious. But, you're right, this will not work. Whatever I wear will have to incorporate these pants though. I'm too tired to put different pants on.
Me 2: How about that turtleneck and tunic that are hanging together?
Me: Sure. Why not? At this point I don't think it matters. I'll just add a blue necklace and we're out the door.
And so, I ended up in this outfit. I don't think this is one I ever repeat again, even though I like and wear all of the individual elements. I just need to not get dressed, ever again, while under the influence of cold medicine and germs.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
