End of the pant strike

In my denial that summer was coming to an end, I came up with what I called the "pant strike" where I wasn't gonna wear long pants until October.  Instead, I'd only wear skirts and dresses.  In my mind, skirts and dresses are a clear indication of warm weather, so if I was to wear a pair of long pants, that's like admitting defeat to cold weather!  Besides, winter in Canada lasts for like 5 months...I've got plenty of time to wear long pants.

In other news, tying a blouse at the back of a shirt follows the same concept as tying it up at the front, but it definitely doesn't have the same casual retro feel as the latter.  Bam, instant day to night transformation!
