One of the main reasons I’ve been a tad slow to post is because I’ve been racing around trying to get ready to travel. I submitted 17 articles in five days, threw some things into a suitcase and took off for North Carolina to attend my college reunion.
Let me first stress that I’ve not attended a reunion of any kind of my own before outside of concert festivals where I’m going because I’m afraid one of the band members is going to die and I won’t have seen them live (I keep spending whole paychecks on The Rolling Stones for this very reason, although at this point, Keith Richards will outlive us all.) But when the number “20” was associated with “class reunion,” I bought a ticket and booked a hotel room. We all look great for our age, but we lost three classmates last year and time is moving fast. Attention must be paid. So, it was off to Charlotte, NC, I went to see my alma mater, Queens University of Charlotte.
The question always comes up as to what do you wear to such things. For me, I didn’t want to go the old route. I didn’t want to borrow a dress or make it a big huge deal. But I did have this pair of leather shorts that were just itching to get worn, a pair for which I had run suicides in Equinox ETC and raced and raced for miles in SoulCycle and spent so many days in Core Fusion at exhale mind body spa that I became the mayor of pretty much all their locations (I’m a Brand Ambassador for exhale, btw.) No, these shorts needed to get worn and the reunion dinner was the perfect time to pull them out.
The photo above is the one shot we managed to get of the outfit before I took off and started snapping photos of all my classmates. I’ll show you more snaps tomorrow in my roundup of the reunion itself, but here’s a breakdown of the look itself. Personally, I felt really good in it and got a lot of compliments on my legs (which were covered in Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer to make sure you couldn’t see them from space.)
