Cafe Fashionista

 

 

There they are :(

In Chicago, coffee and fashion go together. If you like spending a lot of time at the coffee shop, make sure to invest in a few cafe get ups. I tend to do my own thing, but artsy geek-chic seems to be the norm around here.  The spring is well on its way out. The weather tends to be a nice mix. Lots of sun with a little bit of nippy wind. Great weather for tights, little dresses, and a pair of Ran Ban. A couple weeks ago, I laid out a navy blue, doll-like dress for the morning. But the navy blue seemed a bit drab. So I went off  to the bottom of my trunk to pull out these super-flowery tights I’ve had for ages but had never worn. I looked pretty ship-shape, at least, to my mind. At the coffee shop, I ordered a bottomless cup of coffee and settled down to do some writing. Things went downhill from here. Ok, see these cute flower embroidery? They are actually mini-poison ivy in their own right. If you know anything about the human mind, you know it can’t and won’t work well when it’s stuck with a pair of itchy legs trapped in tights. Didn’t want to walk the half mile back home without having gotten any work done. So in the middle of the itch storm, I read a few letters by Heloise and Abelard and called it a short morning. So much for cafe lounging in my cafe get up.
