I started writing this post and then I trashed it because I got bored. But then I decided my need for the world to know about my new polka dot sweater from Target was greater than my need to silence the message. Also, Marcus asked what I was blogging about last night and when I answered with, “My new sweater,” he sort of gave me the side eye. I can’t blame him.
Anyway, I went to Target this weekend and I bought this sweater.
It’s Merona and it cost $22.99. I wore it to work on Monday because it was joyful and it was…Monday. Also, my sunroof in that snap looks way more glamorous than it actually is in real life.
Along with the above sweater, I also bought another cardigan, a couple of t-shirts and a navy pencil skirt. Which means I finally have something to match the brown pumps I bought on sale like three years ago. There are a lot of questions you could ask there. Like, why did you buy brown pumps? Why didn’t you own anything to match them until now? Why did you keep them for so long? I don’t know either. They have been occupying a spot on the shelf that could have been given to a much more deserving pair of shoes.
My winter wardrobe-building did not stop there. I wouldn’t describe my attitude toward my closet as “completely over it,” but “bored by repetition” would probably come close. There is a 100% chance that no one else notices what I wear on a daily basis, but I care. You know?
Last week after Rosh Hashanah services, a girlfriend gave me a stack of to-die-for hand-me-down oxfords and I essentially owe her a life debt now because they were (1) adorable (2) perfect for winter (3) free. Friends are the best like that. I don’t want to say that I’m looking for more excuses to wear them, but I’m looking for more excuses to wear them.
