In an effort to fight summer schulmpidinka-ness, I conducted an experiment this week. No, said experiment will never make it to popular scientific journals (if there even are such things), but it did make it into the good 'ol blog.
I wondered how it would feel to be slightly more pulled together and presentable when I was out and about this week. Since A. would be going to VBS each morning, this gave me a reason to try my experiment this week.
Every morning I made an effort to shower (yes, huge deal), get dressed in a simple skirt, and have a minimum of make-up on before I dropped A. off at VBS.
Here is some of the evidence:
(I don't have a picture for Monday, but I wore a simple black skirt and t-shirt)
I had to throw in this picture of A. and her pink Goop from VBS. I'm not quite sure how goop relates to Jesus walking on the water or healing the 10 lepers or anything, but she has been enjoying VBS just the same.

Does casual summer skirt + t-shirt + flips or flats = Not so schulmpidinka? In a word, YES.
While I don't think I will continue to wear skirts every single day, I will put them in the casual rotation more often. It's funny, I think there was a little more flip in my flip-flops this week. I actually felt better.
How do you fight schlumpidinka-ness? Do you like to wear casual skirts just because?
