I’m in a Fashion Slump


imageHi there. My name is Christy and I’m in a fashion slump. It happens every year about this time and one of these days I will be prepared.

It is so freaking cold outside that you can’t see what I’m wearing. You will see my Uggs, my rain boots, or my workout sneakers and the bottoms of my pants. That’s it. I’m covered in cold weather gear and I don’t care. Blech! (Unless you are my very lucky neighbors who have cocktails with me in my fuzzy pants; they are super lucky.)

Every Fall I delightfully pin plaid scarves and boots with fun sweater textures. I can hardly wait to update my mommy (machine washable and stretchy) wardrobe and try some new styles! I like fashion, but part of being stained with style is accepting that my kids make me a mess. Looking perfect is not important. Looking great in outfits that reflect my lifestyle, is.

Then Winter, the real Winter hits. It’s below zero with the windchill, I’m cursing the hubs and Mother Nature for the slippery mess outside the door, it takes me fifteen minutes to get everyone suited up just to go out the door and WHEW! I’m tore up from the floor up. The fashion slump hits.

I only want to buy sundresses and pretty flirty tops. Blardigan? Blech. That was so Fall. I have a couple of events coming up and I would like to look nice. Perhaps buy something new? Nope. No sweater will do. Layers, begone! I am ready for Spring.

Ps. Please don’t get upset with me Pinterest followers. I think I’m done with the cold and only pinning for warmer weather. Drops mic and walks away (after doing more push-ups to get ready for sleeveless).
