Yesterday morning, I realized it was supposed to rain. My awesome rain boots gave me blisters and proved super hot on Monday when I wore them and the skies suddenly cleared, so I opted instead to wear a skirt with flip-flops, and change into my work shoes that I keep under my desk. I will never do this again. Why not?
1.) I looked MEGA unproffessional while I was standing downstairs waiting the 10 minutes for the (really old, slow) elevator. I felt extremely self conscious during that time. Don’t wear flip-flops in a court house. If you need to wear walk-to-work shoes, get a pair of ballet flats. My usual go-to is my crocs ballet flats, and I should have worn those today.
2.) I didn’t wear stockings at all all day. Most of my pairs had runs, I didn’t want to put them on at work, etc. Big mistake. I felt super-self concious about this all day. Until today, I could have sworn that only half of the women in the courthouse wear stockings. Today, every woman I saw had on stockings or tights. It’s possible there are women who don’t wear stockings to court and feel fine about it, but it turns out I need stockings to feel comfortable.
3.) I was cold. It turns out that stockings actually keep you quite warm.
So pants or stockings it is. Do you wear stockings? What do you do?
