Our latest visitor—Fall—has arrived unannounced. I am loving this rain, this cozy-up weather, and wishing it weren’t merely a harbinger of snow days ahead.
Here’s my “reader interaction” question of the day: What is one article of clothing that you just cannot part with, no matter how outdated/threadbare/hideous/tight it becomes?
My response: my long jean skirt. I’ve held onto this versatile piece of denim for, I don’t know, four or five years, mostly due to ignorance. I just was never aware that it ceased to be “in style,” until recently when Jeff informed me (under duress) that it looks like the 90s. I was mildly offended for a short minute, until I made a firm decision to not care. I will continue to wear it. Mostly to work. Like today. But also occasionally to church with a cute tank and brown flats. Maybe it’s frumpy, maybe it’s old school, but I can wear it with anything and I’m perfectly happy with that.
