What to Wear: Power outfit

what to wear

I don’t know, guys, I’m feeling like a pretty big weirdo lately. That’s the excuse I’m going to use for this photo shoot, I guess. These weren’t even the weird ones. The weird ones involved me reenacting that scene at the beginning of The Lion King where Rafiki holds up Simba, except I was holding up an owl figurine? OK, sure. I’m not posting those ones. Maybe my POWER comes from being a giant weirdo.

Oh. Heyyyyyy.

Oh. Heyyyyyy.

So that happened. I liked the idea of this week’s power outfit theme, but I have to admit I felt bad choosing one outfit over the others. Because, you know, we all anthropomorphize our clothes and worry about hurting their feelings. In the end, I had to go with my absolute favourite tights, which I have had for about three years and have never stopped loving. One time, the premier of New Brunswick asked me where I bought them. People give me the best confused looks on the street when I wear them – sometimes they ask me if my legs are tattooed. This is the exact kind of weirded out attention I want!

This dress makes me feel like a figure skater.

And this dress is just the most comfortable thing I own, and I think it’s cute. It has a visible gold zipper on the back, I can wear it with literally anything, it’s pretty much the best. The shoes are new, but I can tell we’re going to have a beautiful relationship and I will wear them until they literally fall off my feet in tatters. Anyway, I feel good about wearing all of these things, and that’s my idea of a power outfit.
