19 and 20 June 2014: Lullaby of Broadway

This is one of those outfits I hope my mother doesn’t find. I was pushed for time and the skirt I planned to wear didn’t work with this top and then I remembered the shorts I got last year and figured that if our male parttimers could wear denim and khaki shorts to work, I could rock some tap pants. And then I added heels.

Sorry, Mom.

Apparently my hair stays up when twisted and not just braided! Things you learn when running 5 minutes late and just needing it to do something.


Forever 21 cross back skater dress, ANA tied cardigan, XO Crown necklace, Keds Champion sneakers

And apparently on Friday, I felt like continuing the dancer trend. I don’t know.

Okay. These shoes. I declared it Summer of the Navy Ked awhile back – end of May, maybe? Certainly before The Fault in Our Stars came out. Let’s just get that fact down. I had declared it Summer of the Ked early. Because I saw TFIOS opening weekend and damn it all if Hazel Grace Lancaster didn’t spend 90% of the movie in navy Keds. But I did it first, I swear. It’s documented!

This happened with my first pair of Converse, too. I got the cutest pair of pink high top Converse in the spring, and then a few weeks later Hilary Duff came out with A Cinderella Story and there she was in all of the promo posters wearing MY shoes.

Clearly I am very good at predicting things. I just wish those things weren’t so visibly teen movies. It was annoying when I was 23 (I didn’t wear them much after those posters, damn it) and head shakey now that it’s ten years later. SIGH.

  1. I think that a pair of modest shorts paired with a nice top is very work appropriate. I used to dress that way for work all the time. In fact, in the ’90s they sold shorts suits – I had a madras plaid one. It is not like you are wearing actual tap pants like Ann Miller wore under costumes. One of my favorites do far! A ’30s feel but totally modern,


    • Thank you! I really had fun wearing it. And I’m lucky to work in a place where no one blinked an eye at my wearing shorts and heels.

      I admit to some curiosity as to what the madras plaid short suit looks like. *g* That sounds fun.


  2. I like the shorts outfit – it’s very cute & seems work-appropriate enough. I do recall you declaring the navy Ked’s as the shoe of the summer – any predictions for autumn yet?
