Is it pathetic that when I put on jeans, I feel like I am getting "dressed up"?
Yep, I admit it...it is true...most days my wardrobe consists of sweat or yoga pants, and a casual (usually baggy) shirt. So when I slip on my jeans...look out...it's a red carpet day!
Honestly, it was never my intent, as a stay at home mom, to slum around in my grubbies each and every day. In fact when my boys were infants, I prided myself in the fact that, daily, I made time to shower and get dressed. But, at first wearing clothes that were just one step above pajamas was simply pratical. I mean, seriously, who wants spit up, snot, and other bodily fluids on "good clothes"??!!? Not me! But, now my children are 5 and 6 years old and, mostly, keep their excretions to themselves. Still my apparel has not changed.
In my defense (and why I feel the need to defend myself about this, is beyond me...) while I do spend most days looking, errr, comfortable, this does NOT mean that I am laying around doing nothing. In fact, my days are filled - spent with children, household chores, writing, and building/starting my business, plus much more.
Curiously, while I have been a mom for just shy of seven years (OMG! How did that happen?) it is just now that I am feeling that my wardrobe needs a little help!
But, I am feeling a bit out of my element... I mean, I am not sure what my style is anymore. And Lord knows that I don't have hours of free time to go shopping to try and figure that out.
So, I guess for now, I'll just be happy with the fact that I finally found my way out of Lack-of-Style Denialville.
Because acknowledging there is a problem is the first step, RIGHT?
