In my midwest university town, I felt perpetually overdressed, but D.C. has so many incredibly beautiful, well-dressed women that I feel joyfully like a very tiny fish in a sea of fashionable sharks (that simile went a bit off course, but you know what I mean). A few days ago, a girl walked by my building wearing a camel-colored skirt and black tank--it was such a simple, pretty combination and right away I knew I wanted to try it out. Today is the first day I am "back to work," so I spent the morning at a coffee shop (at Tryst, thank you for suggesting it!) doing research. Now I am refueling for an afternoon of conference calls and syllabus-prep for an online class I was offered at the last minute (hurrah I am extra-gainfully employed and not just dissertating all day long until I turn into Jack Nicholson from The Shining!).
