    What are you wearing RIGHT NOW?

    I know the title sounds like a midnight caller, but do the clothes you're wearing today have a good story, special significance - are you in a suit for an interview or shorts for a day at the beach? Maybe you wear a uniform?

    Today I'm wearing a teal blazer and a white skirt with matching teal embroidery and cute white ballet shoes. The skirt is the intersting story. I had an important interview when the heat spell hit, but I had a doctors appointment before it and hate pantyhouse, so packed my suite up in a bag with the heels and set off for the doctors office in shorts and sneakers. It was so incredibly hot that these shoes (cheap but nice looking Payless heels, I hardly ever wear heals, so figure - why bother? Payless generally last me through the season anyway!) melted and peices of the black 'plastic leather' got all over the skirt, when I put it on - it looked hideous, but it spared the jacket. I had a half an hour to get to the interview, and happened to pass by a clothing store. I zoomed through there until I found a skirt, a little less formal than I would normally wear, but cute and NOT covered with peices of my black shoes (which I wore anyway, could'nt find matching shoes and no one looked down). The sales lady looked at me like I was crazy when I asked if I could change into it, the other patrons were nice and let me get to the front of the line. However the skirt was NOT on sale, first time I paid over 50$ for something that wasn't a suit. I actually hate shopping, and skirts, but since I paid so much for it and can't return it, It will be part of my rotation. But, I got complimented on it about three times today, so maybe it's a good thing!

    I love that story. That so sounds like a day in my life.
    I have on khaki shorts, white tee shirt and white Saucony's. No stories to tell, just had to wear something.

    Light blue plaid capri pants, white t-shirt and my favorite black Reebok flip flops.

    Glitter: That is one heck of a story, you must have been so freaked out when you opened that bag! So, how did the interview go?

    Black slacks, black sandals, black tank and cute pink sweater with a ribbon belt.
    When I stopped at my mom's for breakfast on my way to work, she said WOW, you look really nice. Do you have an important meeting? I said no, these are work clothes. If I had my way, I would work in capri pants, a white tee, and flip flops- yeah, like Marley up there.

    Since I work from home, my normal, every day attire consists of shorts, a sleeveless t-shirt, and NO shoes! Guess I can't really post in this thread anymore, because every day would be a repeat of the above!

    I have on a suit. Today it is light blue. Of course I have the required hose and heels on too. The good thing about this suit, my diet must finally be working because the skirt is a little big.

    Right now I'm at work and we are business casual (dress nice and but blazers aren't required), and I have on:

    - a v-neck short sleeve top with dark gray, light gray, pink and black dashes/lines on it
    - gray pants/slacks
    - gray closed toe heels that criss cross over the top of the foot and have a strap around the heel
    - a silver double heart necklace (one heart is solid silver and the other has small crystals all over it)
    - a solid silver bangle bracelet,
    - a silver Guess watch with Swavorski crystals around the rectangle face and on the band
    - my purse is locked up in my cabinet, but it is a Kathy Von Zeeland matt silver (not a shiny disco ball silver, but a subdued silver/daytime appropriate) with crystals adorning a square on the front that looks like a belt buckle.

    (hey, I like shiny things!)
