What I Wore When I Almost Saw Barack Obama. This is the outfit I would have worn to see President Obama today. As a huge public university with 50,000 undergrads and a major swing state, of course El Jefe himself would come down and get the students revved up. Though I had tickets to elbow it out with the masses, when they opened the doors at 2, the line was at least a thousand people long so I decided to stay inside the tepid med library and duke it out with some studying. Is it silly that I was so happy to find the one cubicle that had an extra bright happy desk lamp? All the small things, guys. Some of my classmates did end up waiting the 4 hours. There will be future chances!

Remember this simple basic striped dress that I got for free from H&M grand opening a month ago? Turned it into a shirt today but tucking the "dress" bottom part of material up and inside, hiding it from view and avoiding the visible-tucking-into-pants-scrunching. Paired it with my favourite crisp, clean blazer and threw on some fall-toned pants to "boot." These skinnies used to be skin tight but maybe after all the stress and high levels of sugar consumption by my brain, they seem baggier (totes matches my eyes). Ran around all day and it was very comfortable and I felt polished. Booked it back from the ultrasound training session to catch the last, last rays in a 2 minute shoot. Curling up with my Powerpoints, pumpkin pie, and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks on my Nook tonight (it's not as romantic as it sounds) and wondering how it's only Tuesday.

A fall shoot in the autumn foliage? Plotting ways to self-take photos with the fiery scenery and lying in the piles of fallen leaves ...

Readers - what would you wear to hear the President speak?

Obama was in Madison last week. People stood outside for 6 hours before the gates even opened - and he spoke outside. I was of course stuck at work. I saw Obama the year he was running for president but if I were to see him this time, I would have worn lots and lots of layers :)

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment! I love the colored denim with stripes. Following you now :)

So well dressed and composed, I suppose it's only necessary when the Prez is to be seen. I probably would have ended up in some denim cut-offs and shredded sweater of sorts. I completely salute you for always dressing the part!

I love that you turned a dress into a shirt! So creative! I might do that too!!! And I have no idea what I'd wear to see the President!
