I had a nice refresher tonight on why I loved this pattern so much when I first made it. First, it fits. Second, it goes together very fast. I started cutting/sewing later than I planned, about 10 PM. At 11:30 PM I was pressing up the hem. I now have a new skirt to wear tomorrow, completely different from today's all-solids outfit.
The jacket is from my Stein Mart trip. I love it. It's green. It's puckery. And it was cheap — marked down to $24.
Today was Day 3 at the office and I finally felt truly productive with some real projects to handle which kept me busy all day. I'd much rather be super-busy than slow. Early feedback on the graphics project I started this afternoon was positive, which makes me feel good. I'll finish that up tomorrow morning and make at least two people happy — the attorney who requested it and the marketing person who handed it off to me because it was over her head. (She's not a graphics person.) I also learned that my department has bi-weekly Friday lunch meetings, which are catered. So that's two days this week I'm not supplying my lunch. Nice!
After work I had a nail appointment, then came home to make a late dinner and sew a skirt. I'm looking forward to vegging in front of the TV tomorrow night. Friday is jeans day and I'll be wearing my denim skirt. No one will know that it's really the same exact skirt I'm wearing tomorrow. ;-)
Thanks for all the tips on bare legs and shoes. I did wear PH today and I was actually comfortable. As I said yesterday, I start to feel a little chilly in the office in the afternoon and bare legs aren't warm. I'll continue to alternate off/on, depending on the outside temps and humidity level. Right now, the air is really dry (for FL) and it doesn't feel so oppressive to be wearing hose. Plus, I'm not outside at all. I get in my car and drive to the parking garage and then I'm in the elevator to the office. My feet actually felt pretty good at the end of the day today. They are slowly getting used to real shoes. That's probably the last word on my PH habits for a while. Aren't you glad? ;-)
Have I mentioned that I'm becoming a coffee addict after just 3 days? The office provides both fresh Starbucks coffee and the flavored single-serving Krueger cups all day long. Mocha Almond Fudge … yum!! Plus they provide plates, cups, napkins and utensils so I never have to worry about bringing my own from home. I tell ya — I love this place!
