What I Wore Today

Some people have really cool blogs, like my friend Alyx.  I've read through her archives, because, well when I don't get to the library often enough that's what I do.  I read alllllllllll the posts on people's blogs. Yeah.

Sometimes she does posts where she takes a picture of what she is wearing, and it is always really, really cute.  Like, she just wears nice clothes, you know?

I have other friends that do this as well.  And they always look just so good.

You all know, I never really look that good. I mean, sometimes I pull it together and I look decent enough, but I never look "trendy" or "like I belong in a fashion magazine".  Because I don't.  And I could say that I don't have the time, or the money, but really it's just the effort I don't want to put in.

Because I could make the time, and I could save the money, but I just don't have what it takes within to me to care that much.  I wish I did.  When I see pictures of them and how cute they look, and how they just really pull it all together to look stylish and sharp, I wish I did.

But, I am me and I have always been me and I'm very satisfied with that.  In high school I frequently borrowed clothing from my brother's closet.  Yes, my brother.  He's a cool dude, and he dressed pretty sharp, but well, I'm a girl.

I've since learned a few things about clothes, and I think I dress like a girl now, but wow, I've been through some awkward times.

This morning when I was getting dressed I was at an all time low of "I JUST DON'T CARE" so long as it covers my body from the wind, you know?  And when I was done and saw what I was wearing I couldn't help but laugh at myself a little.

In case you wanted to laugh at me, too.

A gray t-shirt.  On top of a pink long sleeve shirt.  With another grey t-shirt on top.

Represent.

I'm totally going out like this, too.  To stores. With people.  Also, that first gray shirt I'm wearing? That's the one I slept in.  Don't care.

My favorite part of the above picture. Hi Baby!

  2. Well, I used to care about what I wore, and I still occasionally think I could make more of an effort (and that I should for my husband, you know?), but then I remember that I value sleep (and getting to my kids to school on time- and I go walking as many times as I can after dropping them off) more than that now, and think- hey these clothes were clean when I put them on. That should count- especially if I was actually able to squeeze a shower in that day too! So I say that if the other 2 shirts were clean, and you are comfortable and not naked in public, you're doing fine! :)

  3. When a person looks as good as you do, who needs fashionable clothes anyway?

  4. I think you look fine. Comfortable. And I'm not going to pretend I haven't gone to WORK looking far worse than that. Haha. I really should try harder. Blah.

  5. I have found that lately the only day I seem to really pull together a nice outfit is Sunday. Most days I figure that the only people I see besides Landon and Dan are people at Walmart or Target or the grocery and there is no need to dress to impress them! And as for Landon and Dan, well, they love me no matter what I wear. Go with what is comfy!
