You may be asking yourself, how does one let this happen?
Well let me tell you, it’s not as hard as you would think.
I bought this cute new gray sweater dress at H&M in Chicago. When I tried it on, I was either wearing dark tights or pants — can’t remember. All I know is I bought it thinking it was a work dress. Anyhow, on the same shopping trip, I also picked up these cute gray lace tights at Urban Outfitters. The color is an exact match. On the hanger/in packaging this outfit looked like a winner.
Last night, I picked out this outfit and ironed the dress. I was running late this morning and the last thing I do before I walk out the door is throw my clothes on. I took a peak in the mirror and low and behold the dress was significantly shorter than I recalled. In fact, paired with the lacey (read: borderline fishnet) tights, it was looking mildly trampy.
Too late now, I thought. It seemed like a good idea to put on my black boots as opposed to the black t-strap pumps I had planned to wear to cut back on the amount of leg that was showing.
One more look in the mirror and I thought, Ok, that’s better.
On the way into work, I caught a reflection of myself in the glass door.
Try majorly. And the boots weren’t helping. AT ALL.
Ugh…so I spent the remainder of the day holed up in my office trying to avoid any and all contact with the powers above me.
The work girls were super nice and encouraging.
My favorite comment was, “it doesn’t look too much different from how you normally dress.”
(Love you guys!)
