I have SO MANY 'regular' things to tell you. I keep skipping them to share earth shattering stuff. . . but dang it, Thanksgiving is coming so I'm bound and determined to create a post of favorite things/ grateful-for stuff (or things I've been loving, but I'm just now sharing).
|It's by alo yoga. It has the little tabs |
to stick my thumbs in, if I so choose.
Note: before I wore it the first time when Coach and I flew to Dallas (that story STILL needs to be shared. Have I mentioned, way behind?), I summoned my girls.
"THESE LEGGINGS WITH IT? THESE SHOES?", etc.
Mini insisted and Curly sort of agreed: "You don't need leggings with it. I kinda don't think you should do the leggings."
I told them NO WAY WAS I SKIPPING THE LEGGINGS. I trust my girls to guide me, but on this day THEY WERE WRONG. SO WRONG. I'm too old to wear a dress that is really more of a tunic without leggings.
|This is the dress on the hanger. It looks|
better 'on'. Clearly. But note that
cute little gathered bit in the
front -in the future I'm not sure
I can be convinced to wear something
without this kind, forgiving
little bit of wardrobe-wizardry.
At the airport the next day, Coach was like YEAH WHEN YOU JUST BENT OVER TO PICK UP YOUR BAG, I REALIZED THAT THAT DRESS WOULD'VE NOT WORKED IF YOU WORE IT WITHOUT LEGGINGS. WHAT WERE THE GIRLS THINKING?
* This from a man who almost never makes mention of articles of clothing.
The girls' thoughts are evidence that we're either:
A) still the best ones in our home to make final decisions
or B) that our girls think I can pass for a young, hip mom.
Well, this list isn't very long. It's not because I don't have several other favorite things to share but because I need to 'splain EVERYTHING. Am I the only one out there who has a story for everything? I really, REALLY wanted to prove to myself that I'm capable of writing a short post. Another shortie will post tomorrow. Stay tuned. Maybe a short post doesn't really count though, if it's continued the next day.
Favorite shirt or dress or other clothing item that you have forgotten to tell us about? Well, hold out no longer. Have you taken wardrobe advice from a trusted family member only to realize that they did you wrong? Do tell, says the woman who is relieved she wore her leggings against the advice of her offspring.
