I’ve been rearranging the closet items, busting out the good weather stuff, and packing away my big stupid brown parka and whatnot. It feels good to wear shoes without socks again, even if there’s a slight chill in the air some days.
I had to run a few errands not far from home, so I slipped on one of my favourite pairs of shoes – a grey-blue pair of slingbacks with a low wooden heel – which look super casual when paired with jeans. Ideal for doing non-fancy things in non-fancy places. I can skip around town in them quite merrily.
I’m still donning this chunky wool sweater, which is heavy in knit, but fine to wear without a coat at this time of year… and without a t-shirt underneath. The v-neck is deep, so I threw on that skull print scarf to keep me warm AND to shield my shockingly ample decollete from the eyes of children and dirty old men alike as I go about my business around town. *snort* (See how subtle and floral the scarf appears? TOTALLY NOT SCARY!!)
And I stole my kid’s fedora for the day, a) because I can do what I want because I’m the mum, and 2) because he was at school and was none the wiser. (Until now.)
