What I Wore: Sweater (Le Tote), Skirt (Chicwish), Shoes (Gap), Necklace (Inherited)
Confession: I can't stand wearing skirts in the winter. Who knows what changed; I used to able to manage it. Now though- no. No tights, no leggings, no knee high socks will do. And this year, winter has been milder than most. So kudos to all you ladies ready to freeze in the name of style, but not this girl.
So, you may be wondering about this outfit then... I found the loophole to no skirts in in winter- this is what I wore on a day I knew I wouldn't need to go outside (and I didn't. Not once. Clever, or lazy? Who can tell!). I wore it on Christmas Eve a few weeks ago when we hosted that family event. I told this to someone and they cheekily told me that was "adulting level: advanced." Besides the fact that it wasn't, really (there were four of us and the The Boy did all the cooking. It really, really wasn't.) This comment sort of made me laugh. The term is just odd. Is it around because we all feel like impostors who are not "really" adults? Because I also wear sweaters with dogs on them. That's got to be at least a little "young at heart," right?
Confession #2: I love this sweater.So. Much.
But really, no. It didn't feel like adulting because I am an adult. Sometimes an adult still learning things, sometimes an adult doing things for the first time (For example: this weekend, The Boy and I bought our first car together! We came to this marriage each with a vehicle already, so this was the first big joint purchase of this kind. Thrilling!) But still an adult. Because here's the secret they don't tell you when you're six, or if they did, you didn't believe them: adults are people too, and no one ever has it all figured out. That's what makes life interesting. Now excuse me while I go to work and play with blocks and picture books.....
