My name is Lindsay, and I am a yuppie. Sometimes. Well, mostly on tri-monthly weekend trips to Cincinnati, when I hit up the yuppie trifecta: Trader Joe's, Ikea, and Starbucks.
Oh, wait... If you consult our fallen homie Merriam-Webster (Seriously - when was the last time you cracked a dictionary?), then I suppose I'm not a yuppie - not even on the weekends. Damned salary requirements... Either way though, I can still pretend. And on that note, when I'm off being yuppieish (Thanks again, home slice, for giving me license to use that word.), this is what I would like to wear.
If you've ever been to Ikea, then you know you can't go traipsing around that holy grail of warehouse-style consumer chaos in anything other than flats. Let's wear a really, really expensive shirt though, shall we? And be sure to pay lots extra for the holes in your jeans (Except I really do want the shirt and jeans. Shameful...) because we just really wouldn't want the neighbors or the PTA to see us looking too low-key...
Well damn again... My neighbors won't see me at Ikea or Trader Joe's because I don't actually live in said large city. So. Many. Flaws. Well, if you live in San Diego or Seattle or Atlanta (You get the idea.), then dress it up and down simultaneously, sip your caramel-mocha-frappydoodle, and buy some organic and Swedish goods in my honor. For you, I'll go look at some horses. We'll call it even.
