Pleasantly exhausted after the first productive weekend I can remember in quite a while. In addition to numerous home-related chores, I finally met Megan Nielsen face-to-face for a fruitful shopping trip around Georgetown. We had a wonderful time and I walked away with some extremely versatile work/play pieces. Best shopping buddy ever! I also learned all kinds of important things, like Madewell has an incredible selection of affordable rustic belts and jewelry and there is a magical blog that explains Anthropologie's mystical sale process. Things I never knew before! Shopping enlightenment!
For a large portion of my adolescence, this was basically my uniform: wide-legged pants and a t-shirt (not so much the giant platforms). I guess I was a child of the 90s. I distinctly remember a discussion in my high school French class, where our teacher asked us what was remotely flattering about the baggy pants we were so fond of. "They lengthen your legs! They make your waist look smaller!" I'm actually pretty proud of us for coming up with such intelligent responses, but it's true. There is something to be said for the wide-legged pant look and it doesn't hurt that they're comfy, too...
