When In Doubt, Wear A Little Grey Dress
On my way home last night, I started thinking about what I would wear today. I was so happy with my outfit yesterday that I wanted to wear a similar one today. So, when I got home last night, I put together a similar outfit: A different jumper dress, a different (and shorter) tie, different shoes, and I swapped out the shrunken jacket for a cropped sweater. Then, for reasons that I can't explain, I started trying on other outfits. (Well, maybe, I can explain why I started trying on other outfits. It had something to do with the possibility of my going to the opening of a photography exhibit tonight.) In any event, at the end of the day, I had a couple of possibilities for today, but I decided not to decide which of the possible outfits I would wear today. I decided to let my mood in the morning dictate my choice. And, it did.
Many women have a stash of "little black dresses" that they reach for when all else fails or they aren't feeling up to being creative. Me, I have a stash of "little grey dresses". This morning I felt, let's just say it, "icky". So a "little grey dress" it was. (As an aside, I don't have a stash of "little grey dresses" (or "little black dresses," for that matter) for Spring or Summer. My stash of "little grey dresses" is definitely for Fall/Winter. I am not sure what that means.)
I am wearing an old H&M dress, with a pin from my jewellery box, an old H&M sweater and an H&M scarf. My tights are from my sock drawer and my shoes are by Fluevog.
