The Boyfriend says, "Really?"
And I say, "Yup, let's go."
"I don't get why you would want to wear those school shoes."
"Sandals. And we've been through this last year. Next."
"You don't even play sport."
"I'm feeling the tennis vibe."
"You don't play tennis."
"I don't see the issue here?"
It's an often played scenario with The Boyfriend not understanding my sartorial point of view or reasoning behind what I choose to wear - with "...because I like it!" generally being the reason.
Over the years he has become accustomed to me and my choices and now reserves his accusations of visual offence when he really feels I've hit a bum note. This brief blow to the ego can provide a vital moment of proper assessment on my part to either add/remove/completely overhaul before I walk out the door.
This time his AoVO [Accusation of Visual Offence] was overturned by higher authorities due to findings that adding sporting or schoolish touches to feminine garments is justified.
