As I looked out the window at yet another day of pouring rain, I really wanted to put on some warm, cozy sweats and hunker down. But, not wanting to send the message that I have "given up" (although many more of these stormy days, I just might), I opted for real clothes. I'm a little sick of wearing jeans, but this super rainy weather is not working well with my lightweight spring trousers. My two pair of full-length jeans were in the wash, so I grabbed these cropped ones. It was pouring out, so I dug the thick cable sweater out of my winter drawer, donned the rain boots, and then threw on a hat, necklace and earrings to fight the shlumpy factor. I worked from home on a corporate training presentation, shuttled kids, and went to friend's house for a casual dinner.
