You know how you walk into your closet and you gravitate to
an item of clothing that’s really inappropriate for the day ahead? Well, even
though it’s been raining cats and dogs on and off, I really wanted to
wear my glen plaid wide leg H&M trousers on Wednesday. These babies are hemmed for heels so they touch the ground (if not drag) even with some height in footwear. Thank goodness they’re 100% manmade materials ,
as they are indestructible. I seriously think I could go dirt biking with Aida
and then just brush them off for dinner. I brought two pair back from a business trip to the East Coast, with a side order of shopping in Manhattan (as one does). This was in the olden days when H&M’s were not sprinkled willy-nilly throughout the US like Starbucks (circa 2004) and like they are now. And I know from Starbucks, as I’ve lived in Seattle during their rise to world domination. Anyway, I pulled out the pair with a light pink stripe running through them, which you won’t be able to see except in close up, but I know is there. Wheee! I feel so giddy with pink on! I threw on my new slouchy ink mixed media sweater from BR and cogitated on how to keep the hems dry on the commute. Enter the very cool (Una has them, so yeah…) waterproof leather Joan of Arctic wedge booties with lug soles. I seriously could walk for days across the tundra with these strapped on, oh and also with snowshoes probably. They have a round toe, so in my childish glee, I had a giggle pretending to not have any feet underneath the pants legs. The trousers reminded me of that trip, shopping with my then colleague Therese, of optimistic days chock full of business travel as we headed into the FDA approval process for our prostate cancer treatment; first
to market in class…some heady times.

Tomorrow’s post has a romance twist, so either avoid or not,
depending on your mood. Cheers and happy fabbing.
