No Biking = Dresses!

This week we have a new hire training at work that I’ll be attending. Included in this is dinner tonight with the group. Since it’s a bit of a commute to stay late for dinner tonight, take the train back up to SF, and then take the train early tomorrow morning for the training again, it made more sense for the company to put me up in a hotel. And, the Hilton at that. (Not too shabby, eh?)

Since I’ll be staying in the valley for two days I didn’t want to keep my bike at the office. I instead took a taxi to the train station today and then took the light rail from the train to my office. This meant I wasn’t going to be all sweaty and gross like 100% of the days when I bike. It also meant I could do my hair and make-up AND wear a dress and tights. Whoop, whoop! I love being girly and have been missing it the last couple of months. So, I wore a dress today and packed a dress for tomorrow as well.

The dress was a Christmas present from my knight’s brother’s girlfriend (did you follow all that)? I really, really like it. The only problem was that I felt like it looked too much like a going out dress to wear to more casual occasions and therefore have only worn it once, when we went out for a night on the town in Chicago. Well, oh boy did Pinterest have a solution for that!
