I think a more appropriate title for this outfit would be "The Date Night That Never Happened." Last weekend I went to Pennsylvania for a work trip. I preached at a church on Sunday and was flying back to Elgin on Monday night, so Chandy and I were going to do something fun on Sunday night. Our date nights usually include burgers and Skee-ball.
I packed this outfit so that I could wear with my lovely new skirt that My Sister's Closet sent my way. I probably would never pick this shape of skirt out my own - I'm usually all about the fit and flare, so to wear this more straight style that is tighter made me feel a little self-conscious. But then I just thought to myself "YOLO!" I liked the color of the skirt a lot, so I was going to wear it out for a rare date night with my King Goober ("Honey, what should I call you on my blog?" This is the answer that I get.)
Only that date night NEVER HAPPENED. Instead we got some snow and had to stay in and watch Sherlock - not necessarily a bad thing. It was wonderful way to spend an evening; only it didn't require a skirt and heels!
So, when I came back to Elgin, I got one of my housemates take some shots of me before she and I had a housemate date night. So, I guess this skirt did get to have a date night after all!
