I bought this midi skirt recently and didn't know what to think about the length at first. It breaks my leg-lengthening rule of thumb, which is that a skirt length should be either right over the knee or maxi length. This dress is neither, haha. It's the length of skirt that girls who don't have the legs of Maria Sharapova are advised to avoid. But I love it. It flows and moves beautifully. I love that when I sit down I don't have to worry about my skirt riding up. It's wide at the bottom so it doesn't restrict me when I step out of my car or take long strides. The most pleasant surprise has been how it keeps my legs warm. Office air conditioning is the worst and my legs are cold almost all the time in the summer. This skirt keeps them nice and cozy! What do you think? Do you like it or do you think I look like an Amish missionary?
I'm in Vancouver Island this week to spend time meeting with people in our company's headquarters in Victoria, Duncan, and Nanaimo. I used to fantasize about a life filled with work travel. Jet-setting between international financial hubs like New York, Tokyo, London and Hong Kong and staying in the finest hotels. Work travel still appeals to me very much, but I don't know if I could do it frequently. Right now I'm sitting in a really nice hotel suite with a view of the ocean, and I'm in a town that's beautiful and charming with lots of interesting things to see, yet the overwhelming feeling I have is that I miss Bahram. If I'm enjoying myself and seeing cool things, I wish he was there to experience those things with me. If I'm not having a good time, I would of course much rather be home with him. I feel like I wouldn't think twice about forgoing certain experiences if it meant time away from him. Is that weird? I love learning and experiencing new things, but at the end of a day I don't want to come home to an empty hotel room, I want to be with Bahram. If my boss is reading this, don't count me out of any trips to places mentioned above ok, I'm totally in, but perhaps I can bring a friend?
Do you travel for work? Is the excitement still there or has the glamour worn off? I'd love to hear your experience!
