Are you glad it's Wednesday? I am! We're that much closer to the weekend and I can't wait. We don't have anything spectacular planned, but I think being at home is pretty spectacular in itself.
Those of you that have been reading for a while know that I had some issues a few weeks ago regarding the length of skirts/dresses at work. Since then I've worn pants because it seems as though many of my skirts aren't acceptable at work anymore.
Today's dress is one of my absolute favorites because it's a blank slate. It looks great belted so I can wear any kind of belt with it, the shade of purple can be mixed with almost any color so I can layer practically anything over it...it's just perfect. I love this dress.
I was holding my breath when I put it on this morning, hoping that it would meet the knee-length criteria.
It kind of doesn't. But it's so close! It's a little bit too short by an inch or two. It's acceptable if I pull it down so that the waist is closer to my belly button; the belt is up higher than the waist of the dress, it's sitting where the dress should sit. Every time I stand up, I pull the dress down. As I walk, I'm tugging on it. And I'm slouching over like Melanie suggested the other day! The dress is great when I'm not at work, the length is perfectly modest in most normal settings so it's not the dress that's making me uncomfortable; it's the dress code.
I really need to find longer skirts and dresses so that I don't have to question and be uncomfortable. I just don't have the money to go shopping right now so I'm trying to make do with what I already have in my closet.
I need you guys to pray for me that I won't get in trouble for this one! I will likely add this to my "not for work" list, which is really sad because I LOVE this dress SO much.
