Meanwhile, though, in a move that exemplifies what an old friend of mine would have filed under the "beauty of contradictions," I thought it was time here for a little What I Wore -- at least for an outfit that doesn't involve dusty shirts and trekking poles.
As for the mix-and-match I introduced through these slingbacks I bought in Paris so many years ago, I love the play of blues; I also like the way the pointed toe elongates my legs, exactly the way everyone style-wise says it will . . .
I was walking to campus that day, and it was a warm day, and if you know me, you know that means that any minute now. . . . I'm going to switch to my Birkenstocks.
If I'd been teaching that day, I'd probably have thrown the slingbacks into my backpack and changed into them in my office. There's no question they lend a more polished look to the overall outfit, never mind a more flattering one. But for a day of cleaning my office, getting documents to the printshop, working at my desk with my door shut. . . .the Birkenstocks won, yet again.
There you have it then, What I Wore one day last week. Now let's get this week started . . . . Happy Monday! Comments welcome, as usual. . . . But in the interest of clarifying my intentions as I post What I Wore: I'm NOT looking for approval or flattery or, even, constructive criticism. And I'm obviously not trying to teach you anything about how to dress (ha! say both of us). I'm just sharing, because how I dress is important to me, still, at 60, and it's a Part of my life. Just Part. . . .
While I'm not joining in the Visible Monday party that Patti hosts over at Not Dead Yet Style blog, you might want to take a peek . . .
