I’m wearing a dress to a Christmas party tomorrow, and I feel super weird about it.
Remember back when I wore dresses?
Of course you do. It was just last year, and all the years before that too. The tights always worked with the belt always worked with the boots always worked with the sweater. I swished, I swirled, I planned out my necklaces. I got a lot of compliments from my very girly boss.
I went out and got myself some nice tall boots. I got them to wear with my skirts. And they looked lovely.
But then I also got a magic pair of jeans — my first pair of skinny ankle zips. Their close cuffs slid smoothly into my boots. And with those jeans…my whole world changed.
