Yes, the most random activity of my week is going to be attending a dodgeball tournament. I'm not even playing in it (if I were, the clothing choice would not be as difficult) - I'm merely a spectator. Dan's a middle school teacher and is playing in a dodgeball tournament to support one of his school's philanthropic efforts for an organization called H2O for Life. I will be playing the role of supportive wife in the stands.
So my outfit needs to be appropriate on many levels:
* meeting/hanging out with his co-workers
* appealing to middle school kids (I would like to be the cool wife of their favorite teacher)
* allows me to quickly move out of the way of errant rubber balls flying through the air
So I'm thinking some kind of variation on the classic, kid-friendly jeans + tee combo:
It's not the most fashion-forward outfit that I'll put on this week, but I think it's still a good reflection of my style. There's nothing worse than trying too hard with an outfit - especially around 7th grade girls. Because they will totally call you on it.
