You're disappointing me.
Here I go through this long crying jag and apology for my sins against DC Style, and...
all I see on the Metro is blah.
Blah, blah, blah.
I know it's hot out.
I know you don't feel like spending any time on your clothes because you'll be soggy by the time you transfer twice and walk 6 blocks.
I know hairdryers are a cardinal sin right now - it's just too darn hot.
A fitted, untucked button down & black pants?
You have more creativity than that. I know you do.
And I know how you feel. I'm in the same boat. I've worn black pants twice this week, 'cause I can't bother to pull anything else out of the closet. But I've got my Lawrence, Kansas, bracelet on. And it makes all the difference. I promise.
It takes 3 seconds to pull out a brooch, a bracelet, a big necklace, showcase earrings, or a bright bag. One of those things will make it all better. A blah outfit is so easily transformed with an accessory.
Don't have anything? Get thee to Target! Raid the accessories department. Claire's, Macy's sale racks of jewelry. It's all within $10, I swear.
And then get on the Metro tomorrow morning with pride.
