On Wednesday morning, I had the pleasure of driving three pre-teen girls to an inter-school music competition. They were cute and silly, and were stunned when I let them choose the radio station and eat snacks in the car. And I think I earned their undying loyalty when I passed around the Tic Tacs. There's something so appealing about the affection of teenagers--maybe because it can be so mercurial.
I really hated being a teenager. I think that's why it makes me so happy to see kids that age having a good time and being themselves. At least I assume they were being themselves--I know I was very busy trying on different personas back when I was twelve or thirteen.
Our last field trip was to the Conservation Fair. This time I wore a much more comfy ensemble and didn't take a sack lunch.
I try not to wear an outfit more than once every two weeks. (I don't know what Scout is eating in the pic--probably a stick. He's mad for sticks.) But this is one of my most comfy Norma Kamali outfits, and it's perfect for those days when one doesn't have a lot of time to get dressed.
See how much lighter the leggings look than the dress? They seem to have faded some with two washings. (The difference seems more pronounced than it is here.) Or it could be that they're just a different color all together.
Norma Kamali Athletic Dress: $18; NK leggings: $10; NK Tank: $8; NK Black ballet flats: $20; Jewelry: $7; Goofy Dog: Priceless. Total: $63+
This may have been the last day for me to wear this outfit this fall. But I couldn't resist. I did throw a jacket in the car as well because the weather's getting cool and unpredictable. I'm just not ready to give myself over to fall and winter. (Maybe it's because I can't seem to find anything that's warm enough to wear--except for coats!)
Oh, wait! I forgot to post this yesterday. It may explain the supercilious look on my face in my preppy ensemble pic. She was right above my head!
Hope you're ready for a fun weekend! L.
