For instance, here’s me on a weekend away with my husband to celebrate our anniversary, channeling Kate Middleton and transforming myself into a stylish, 30-something, temporarily child-free woman. (And yes, I’m wearing the boots, though you can’t tell in this pic.) I’ve gotta say, it’s a nice change from my usual persona of harried mom in workout gear schlepping everyone and their stuff around all day.
Who’s your alter ego, and what costume do you wear to transform into it?
