Dressing for the Drizzle

It was absolutely pouring this morning in Seattle, and I knew I'd be walking to lunch with a friend, so I had to be calculated about choosing my attire this morning given my two biggest rain peeves: wet toes and pants that are soaked at the bottom.  It was too chilly for a skirt today, which means it's time to bust out the biz-capris.

These capris look frumpy dumpy if I wear flats, so I had to choose a sexy pair of closed toed heels to keep it looking put together.  Had I realized I was choosing a black tee, and not the navy one I thought I was grabbing, I probably would have opted for black pumps instead of brown snakeskin, but I'm rolling with it.

Todays playlist:
Selections of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, and Dinah Washington, inspired by a story I heard on NPR, Morning Edition this morning on my way to work about Ella Fitzgerald and how fabulous she is.  She really is.

In other news, I quilted in my sweats all day yesterday.  It was fantastic.  I'm excited to go home tonight and do more of the same.

As the friend who went out to lunch with you, you looked fab. I hadn't realized all the work that went into matching your look to the walk in the weather. That took some proactive prognostication about the precipitation.
