I wore this outfit out to eat with friends over the weekend and realized as I was taking photos in the parking lot behind the restaurant that it might have been just a teensy bit fancy for a burger pub. All the weird looks I kept getting from people confused as to why my photo shoot was taking place where they needed to park their cars didn't help either. But if you're going to a burger pub that's been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives, you're pretty much one step away from being on TV yourself. Which means you need to look your best. I'd like to think I was just ready for my close-up in case a Food Network crew decided to pop in unannounced.
In all honesty, I wore this outfit mostly in the hopes that dressing more ladylike would encourage me to eat in a similar manner. It sort of worked. I'm proud to say I only ate half of my ginormous, cheese-stuffed burger. Which I immediately followed up with ice cream. Don't judge. Self-restraint and a ladylike outfit can only get a girl so far.
