30 for 30, day 11. Behold the magnificent ruffles!

18 Nov
Can I get you some fries with that, hon?

It’s formal, but it says I like to party

“You need two beer steins.” “Or a basket of fresh eggs, like you came straight from the farm.” There was also some reference made to Pipi Longstocking.

Yes, these were just a smattering of comments made about my outfit today. The most awesome part? This is the outfit I chose to wear… wait for it… to have lunch with the VP of my entire department. I’m either a bold woman, or completely clueless. Or a dainty collision of both. The classy lady that she is, it never came up. Never mind that I wore my coat the whole time, thankfully we were sitting outside and it was chilly.

In all fairness, I was thinking more along the lines of being formal, but liking to party* with the tuxedo t-shirt. Behold the magnificence of the ruffles! I had also planned to wear this fun-loving outfit with teal tights and short black ankle boots. I chickened out when it became very apparent that the brightness of the tights really highlighted how petite this skirt was. Since I’m not ready to lose my job yet, I swapped the tights for leggings. It was bad enough that I ended up looking like the conservative version of the St. Pauli’s girl.

Beer, anyone?

I’m going to briefly steer you over to my hair. The side ponytail in all its fluffy glory. Yes, that. I’ve really been inspired by all you ladies and decided to be daring. I’ve never pulled it off before. I promised myself that I would not fuss with it, not take it out and re-do it, nada. Challenging as it was, the stylish do lasted until I popped into a hot bath to warm my cold, cold feets. Done!

I gotta go, guys. I’m gonna be late to my waitressing job at the Hofbrau.

Deets: T-shirt/Icon Factory, remixed sweater skirt/Urban Outfitters, black leggings/Hue, black skinny belt/Nordstrom’s, elastic top slip-ons/Munro, kitty ring/gifted.

*One of my favorite quotes from “Talledega Nights, The Legend of Ricky Bobby,” as probably misquoted by me.
