Pants Optional

Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully

It’s cozy weather season here in Minne-snow-ta, and for me, that means leggings. Lots and lots of baggy sweatshirts and warms blankets and hot chocolate and “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and leggings. Because of my height {or, lack thereof..}, sweatshirts have this sort of transient ability to be both sweatshirts and mini-dresses at the same time. It’s magical. And when paired with some warm leggings and wool socks, you’ve got a recipe for fall-layered success.

Although, some might argue that this is just my elaborate excuse to justify wearing leggings as pants, and I might respond with “You got me.” But I want to be comfortable and cozy this fall, goll darn it, so if you can’t handle my “pants optional” motif, then look away! πŸ˜‰

Sometimes GracefullyOn that note, anyone else getting cozy for fall? Cracking open a gallon of cider? Baking apples solely to have your house smell of cinnamon? Eating an obnoxious amount of chocolateΒ in preparationΒ for Halloween {yes…that’s the “excuse” I’m going with…}?

I don’t have a costume for Halloween, but I am contemplating the idea of throwing a sheet over my head with two eye slit openings and going as a ghost. I’m short enough to make Darrin as my “chaperon” a believable scenario. We’ll see if he’s up for “tricking” our neighbors for a pillow case full of “treats.” He’s a good apple, that husband of mine…

Have a wonderful Tuesday! πŸ™‚
