I am what you would call, “fashionably challenged”. Or maybe just "fashion challenged" I don't know. The point is, I'm not fashion forward so much as I am a huge mess.
Most days of my life I am wearing the following:
A plain, colored t-shirt, with some sort of scooped neck
Jeans or Capri pants (depending on the weather)
Crocs. Not just any Crocs, but the ones that look like Mary Janes. I’m cool like that.
Today? Not so much. All my Capri pants are packed in anticipation of my trip!to!Disney!World! next week. In my closet this morning I found a pair of jeans that I bought in the spring and never bothered to wear, because they have…I can’t believe I’m going to admit this…zippers on the legs. Hello 1986! It’s been a while my friend!
I usually wear boot-cut and these are as skinny as skinny jeans for a fat girl can actually be. I don’t even know why I bought these.
Okay, I do know why. They were on sale and my size and I needed pants.
They are the dark colored jeans. I put them on and they actually look okay. I’m still not crazy about the zippers, though.
So anyway. Then, I went looking for a shirt. I found this white one that’s a wrap top. I like wrap tops, but they aren’t crazy about me. But I put it on anyway, because what else do you wear with dark pants, right?
I don’t know. I don’t make sense at all.
So I put on this ensemble and looked in the mirror to make sure my boobs weren’t hanging out. They weren’t.
Then I went into the kitchen where Jason was preparing lunches for himself and the children. Because I can’t touch lunch meat. Or think about it…eww.
“Do I look okay?” I asked. And prepared myself.
Because my husband? Brutally honest in a nice way. He’s not one of those husband who would say, “You look fine” if you were wearing curlers and a floral tent. He's the one that says, "Your eyebrows could use some work babe."
Oh? And he expects me to tell him if he is misgroomed. No, he really does.
He is SUCH A GIRL.
He scrutinized me. I mean, really, really scrutinized me.
And then he said, “Yes. You look fine. And those pants are somewhat slimming.”
I’m totally wearing them from now on!
And? I need to go shoe shopping. Who wants to come with?
