Memorial Day just passed, marking the unofficial beginning of summer. Unfortunately, someone forgot to remind the weather that dark clouds and temperature below 70 degrees Fahrenheit contradict the definition of summer. So, I’m guessing that the weather is waiting for the official beginning of summer to act accordingly? I hope so. I guess that’s only fair, given my un-pedicured toes also await the official beginning of summer. While waking up on the Tuesday following Memorial Day to dreary weather shatters any forced optimism about the beginning of the work week, nothing cures work blues like floral print. Yes, I have an unhealthy obsession with floral print. However, to be fair, who doesn’t love flowers? Hence, when I woke up this morning and saw the forecast for the day, I convinced myself that wearing this pretty midi skirt was worth the pain of arising from my comfortable bed.
Also, I thought it fitting to wear something floral since I’ll be performing a stand-up routine featuring our former First Lady Michelle Obama whose floral print outfits inspired all of us. Because let’s face it, I’m more likely to succeed in emulating Michelle’s style than her intellect. But here’s to never giving up on your goals, because being half as wise as Michelle is nothing to be scoffed at.
