last thursday was one of those days when things slide slightly out of hand and get chaotic. i worked all morning and left for lunch in select blogger company. regardless of my firm efforts to return to work, we lost time chatting, realized it was too late to return, had some beer and continued directly to the multiple events of the evening... what a horrible choice fashion-wise.
one should know to leave home in outfits that suit every reasonably expected situation that might follow. to my detriment, i suck at that. thus, i had lunch in an exaggerated version of my current preference for loose on loose and ended up partying in a costume that makes me look like a small elf – no minor thanks to my shoes and stripey socks. i felt more uncomfortable and fidgety the later we got into the night.
don't get me wrong, i love the outfit for its foldy movement and i adore my shoes that are just a tad too ugly. nonetheless, as an ensemble, they made me feel totally out of place late at siltanen where the fashion crowd gathered to a party organized by weekday.

i have many trusted looks that easily carry me from morning to the wee hours, but i am too much of an intuitive dresser to regard this as an important factor on a daily basis. thus, i still lack the ability to prepare myself for unexpected schedule changes. you can find pics from the events here, here and here, and despite my ensemble failure, i had a great time.
i expect this to be an issue again (and again) and, thus, next time you see a little smeagul sneaking around the corners of a nightclub, you know it's me wearing my morning mood. does this ever happen to you?
