You know that moment when you realize that everyone is wearing, eating, drinking, carrying, listening to, or some-other-how sporting the same thing? And, worse, maybe something you haven’t even noticed before now? This happened to me a few weeks ago.
Around the time the cold settled permanently in, I swung by the coffee stand in our neighborhood on my way home from thrifting. Both baristas were wearing the following uniform template:
leggings & boots + tee & gauzy scarf + long, shaped cardigan
I doubt they called each other up the night before and planned to dress similarly. Their hair was similar too. Suddenly I felt very uncool; it had not yet occurred to me to put together such an outfit.
But it was exactly what I needed later in the day when I dressed for the exercise studio. Worn with boots and a long sweater, workout pants (even capris) look just like casual clothes. I could wear that template all day long!
All this time I have been shopping, thinking that the reason I couldn’t find a sweater to cover my
b_++ pockets was the proportions of my figure. Apparently not 😉
I think I prefer hi-lo with the hi in the front and lo on the back, not the other way around!
