what I wore wednesday — # 3

October 19, 2011

[Welcome to the latest installment of Chasing Maybes, a self-imposed challenge to pursue experiences I’ve rejected or ignored.  Join me on my experiential ramble through Trivial Pursuit categories.  While in October I’ll be chasing adventures related to history, today I take a brief digression and link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.  Devised as an accountability strategy to get stay-at-home and work-at-home mothers out of their yoga pants and into cute clothes, this project challenges my fear and loathing of self-portraits.  Here goes nothing.]

It isn’t Wednesday, is it?  How is that possible? 

This week I embodied two of my least favorite character traits — procrastination and forgetfulness.  I put off taking pictures for WIWW until I completely forgot about it.  Since I’d like to exhibit a little perseverance in the wake of my other failings, I offer you one photo, taken approximately three minutes ago.

sweater -- Loft, tank top -- Macy's girls' department (hey, a girls' XL is almost the same as a women's XS), belt -- Francesca's, jeans -- NYDJ, clogs -- Bass (ancient), cross-eyed glare -- yours truly

You will notice I made no attempt to “act natural” this time for my camera phone self-portrait (authenticity?).  I chose the coral top and the green sweater because I thought they created an interesting color combination.  Now, looking at the photo, I think I might need to place euphemistic quotation marks around “interesting.” 

Maybe I’ll go change.

I hope your day matches up to your expectations.  Thanks, always, for showing up.

    You’re adorable. And I really like the color combo, too. xoxo.

      I thought of you so much this weekend… I was back at school for reunion, and — even though we didn’t know each other then — kept seeing reminders of you! Plus, we are off to SJS this weekend… when do we get to see you guys again? miss you all. XOXO
