My husband’s flu got worse over the weekend. He was running a high temperature, coughing, and feeling generally like a boxer after twelve rounds.
We decided to go to the Urgent Care Walk-In Clinic nearby, a very good decision indeed. Sandy was diagnosed with the Official Flu and prescribed some meds. He told me this morning “I just feel crappy today and what an improvement!” (Edited to add: now I have it too, darn it to heck!)

I purposely wore the blazer and flats for a touch of business. I think it’s good to dress “respectably” when going to see other professionals; it (unfairly) helps get the staff’s attention. I was also in a hurry, so no button up shirts, boots, or jewelry, just the facts, ma’am.
How would you put yourself together for similar? Do you have a minimally acceptable outfit for those unexpected encounters? Skirt rather than jeans?
I have the honor and pleasure to be nominated by Nicole of High Latitude Style for a Shine On Award. Nicole has a lovely blog and smart sense of style – and she posts from Alaska!
