I wore plaid... to work. I don't know if that's considered appropriate or not, but I did it. So, boom. Okay, I don't actually say boom. But anyway, I felt like the pencil skirt made the plaid a little more work appropriate, though obviously this wouldn't fly in everyone's office. Ours is pretty casual; I think I'm the only person who ever wears pencil skirts. But um, my pencil skirts finally fit so I just feel like I need to wear them. I mean... Baby Weight. I think that subject probably deserves its own post. I don't know if people are even interested in discussing the subject, BUT it is not my favorite. I didn't remotely care about gaining weight during my pregnancy (I gained over 50lbs which I think is hilarious), but it was when the weight stuck around afterward and my pants didn't fit that it got annoying. I actually lost weight relatively quickly and consistently (cheers to the power of breastfeeding!) but it still felt like a long time of wearing "interim" pants (I bought one pair of jeans and one pair of black slacks and wore them over and over). We don't own a scale, so I just went off of whether my pants fit... when they finally did it was like a small miracle. And miracles deserve to be celebrated by wearing pencil skirts. With plaid, obviously.
