1. On my way to school this morning, I saw, on a single block, seven guys all dressed in identical pleated khakis and blue oxford shirts. They looked like some sort of Hill staffer gang.
2. It is officially spring here, which means all the ladies at school are pulling out the tanks tops and cute dresses, and the dudes think its suddenly cool to wear shorts and flip flops. I just don't understand this need by men to look like they're on their way to the beach when they're sitting in a civil procedure class.
What do you think?
Shorts on full grown men?
Ok for casual times, like the park on the week
Ok for casual times, but it better be real fucking hot
This fits into my larger pet peeve about the way straight men dress here*. All too often, I see a woman all dressed up for a date with some slub in a baseball hate and his undergrad sweatshirt. Seriously, dudes, WTF? Would it be too much trouble to put on pants? I mean, seriously.
3. Also, and unrelated to fashion, I really, really need to start writing this final brief, which is due on Monday, but I just can't get motivated. It's so pretty outside!
* With "here" possibly meaning all of America, save New York.
