Top: Dress shirt from JC Penney
Shoes: Easy Street
So, I totally got my first jury summons ever, and today was the day. I want to say upfront, that I actually had a super amazing, cute dress outfit picked out to wear, but I sadly I kinda chickened out and went with this outfit at the last minute. I feel totally lame for compromising my initial vision, though I still wore a skirt, so it feels like a victory for fashion freedom anyhow, right? I really wanted to wear the dress, and I should have, but I just got really worried about possible bigoted legal complications that I decided to play it a bit safer and more conservative. Anyhow, everything went really well for me, and I didn't have any problems or even receive any negativity .. actually, I got lots of compliments on my outfit. Go figure. Next time I'm so going for the dress. It was such a great and smart outfit, ya'll. Fun factor: I was pretty much the only person not in pants, haha. Predictable.
Anyhow, I bought this backpack recently, both so that I could carry loads of reading material to said jury duty, and also for an upcoming convention I'm attending. I've kinda gotten tired of carrying around purses, so I might actually switch to a backpack primarily when I don't have pockets. I'm not sure if it's strange or not, but I did buy a backpack with a pretty kickass print just in case, haha.
So, that's it for this mini OOTD. Hope ya'll enjoyed. Here's one last picture of my outfit and new backpack. Look for more OOTDs soon, cuz I kinda went on a shopping spree for my birthday!
