On Saturday we found ourselves in Muncie (you know, that town they make fun of on Parks & Recreation, the greatest show ever). I didn’t really want to be there, but I had important lawyer things to do. Or something. Actually, if I were really an important lawyer, I wouldn’t have been staying in a Days Inn that hadn’t been remodeled since 1992.
But we made the best of it. After bidding adieu to the butterfly wallpaper (yes, really), we hit up a local farmers’ market and a winery. At that point, we figured we had seen the best Muncie had to offer, so we headed home and then went out with friends to celebrate someone’s completed Bar Exam and upcoming birthday. Oh, right, that someone is me!
This is what I wore for my strange but eventful day. I wore the same top and skirt in Muncie, then amped it up with pumps and a fancy clutch for the evening back in Indy. Had I stayed in Muncie for a night out, I probably could’ve gotten fancy (or, in this case, funcie) by adding a scrunchie. Ooooh, snap! If you’re a Muncie native, I’m just kidding. Mostly.

So what did we learn yesterday? We learned that I am really ready for spring. What are we going to learn today? We are going to learn how I entertain myself (clothes-wise, that is) while waiting for spring.
A girl with an overstuffed closet like mine always has some things she doesn’t get around to wearing for a while. So for my entertainment, I’ve been seeking out the winter-only items in my wardrobe that still haven’t stretched their legs (or their sleeves I guess) this season. This sweater is one of those items.
I remember thinking it was the greatest thing ever when I bought it, but I guess my tastes have changed a bit and I just don’t get as excited to wear it as I used to. I wish it were a little longer and looser so I could do that oversized-on-purpose look. Instead it’s very fitted and conservative and grandma-ish. But looking at these photos, I still kind of think it’s cute. Plus who doesn’t like grandmas?
So what do you think: Keep this sweater around for next year, or should this be its last hurrah?
