Day Seventeen

On November 17, 2011 by Eden M. Kennedy

I’m really falling down on my promise to do some ShoeMo/wardrobe remixing here this month, but I did remember to take a picture of what I wore to work today, aren’t you lucky. I was kind of a hit among both the middle-aged and preschool patrons; I got gawked at by a couple of teenagers, but they were far too cool to admit what they really thought. I only mention that because when I’m happy with what I’m wearing, I don’t really give a shit about your approval, and that’s how I felt today. Yes, when teenage library patrons looking for books on raising chickens can’t touch you, you know you’re all right.

Skirt: Banana Republic
Tights: unknown brand, bought at The Sock Drawer in San Luis Obispo
Mary Janes: Dansko

Pardon me for turning this into a page from a Flickr set. It’s NaBlo, you do what you have to do to keep your head above water.

Also, let me direct you to some other things I’ve posted this week:

1. I know, you only had one glass of wine, the yams were burning, and the baby started crying — what else were you supposed to do? Ask for help?
2. Some holiday films that I’m praying won’t suck this year.
3. The Many Ways Children Can be Disgusting: A Timeline
4. When I read whatever parenting magazine may be on hand at the pediatrician’s office, I am consistently underwhelmed by what they assume that I and my vagina are interested in. (Part of a Babble Salon on the rise of mothers and the ostensible marginalization of fathers.)

  • ZOMG! Iadoretheoutfit.

  • Well, you certainly look like a librarian, if that’s what you were going for.

  • The stripey tights are 110% Win.

    Also I loved your bit on motherhood/fatherhood. I move that from now on we call it “therhood” – pronounced like “Thurgood,” as in the late Justice Marshall, but without the “g.”

    Seriously, though, you raised a really spectacular point (as do the other columnists). Pointing all therhood issues at moms totally enables the patriarchy. And that stinks.

  • Love those tights!! :)

  • Love it. The tights are fantastic.

  • Okay, I call bullpuckey on the socks. You were obviously trying to distract the viewer from your inherent librarian-lady-about-to-disrobe-sexiness. Just own your intellectual smoking hotness. OWN IT DAMN YOU!

  • Aha! The tried and true “postmistress-meets-bumblebee look! Very fetching!

  • delurking to tell you how much i love *everything* about your outfit. i will be stealing this style in the very near future. fortunately because i live in northern ontario i will be able to successfully pass it off as my own.

  • I like the frame arrangement on the wall behind you. It’s something I’ve wanted to do forever, but haven’t done it because I suspect it will look stupid. What you’ve done most certainly does not.
