Fashion. Well, I just don’t get it. I mean, yeah, I watch Project Runway. But I just don’t get it. I don’t understand ruffles and feathers and layers and layers of fabric.
I say all that to say…
Big Mama is having a little Fashion Fiesta. So we can all look into each other’s closets. Because don’t you SO want to do that? I wanted to take pictures of all my amazing outfits but my dh has stolen my camera to use at work (what-ever). I’ve been camera-less for days and have missed so many pictures of Lydia in front of the azaleas and dogwoods.
Anywhoooo. Where was I? Oh yes, MY FASHION. (*guffaw*) When it comes to personal fashion, I’m more of a jeans and tshirt kinda girl. I wouldn’t say I’m frumpy but trendy isn’t exactly my style, either.
Due to the stolen camera I had to go back through my flickr and find some good representations of my *style*.
Exhibit A: Two shirts
I almost always wear 2 shirts. In the winter, it’s a long sleeved shirt with a short sleeved shirt over it. Mainly because a) I’m cold blooded and b) it makes me summer wardrobe last all winter.
Exhibit B: Tshirt & Tank Top
I think I own about 25 different colored tank tops. It all started when I was nursing Lydia. I bought 2 nursing shirts and immediately deemed them the biggest-waste-of-money-ever. So, I started wearing a long tank top under EVERYTHING. It’s been over a year since I nursed her but for some reason, those tanks make me feel…skinnier. Plus, if you’re wearing a little bit of a low-rise jean, they help cover up…you know, places. And as an extra bonus, they add a splash of color and/or pattern to an otherwise drab ensemble! Yes, folks, we have pizazz!
Exhibit C: Jeans and Easy Shoes
Jeans are a must have. I’m sure I will be replacing them with capris when summer gets here, but basically I’m all about jeans. Semi flared/boot-cut/widelegged. I don’t do skinny jeans or tapered. No the heck way. I also like ’em dark. No washing or bleaching or sanding for me.
I just don’t do cute shoes. I know there are adorable ballet flats, wedges and espadrilles. But really, I just like to wear socks and shoes. And I don’t want laces. And because velcro has been out of style for awhile, my little sneaker-y type slip ons will suffice. I have a black pair and a brown pair that are virtually the same shoe. Of course, when summer hits it will be these and these…also easy and probably not too cute.
*this pic is also showcasing my 2 shirts standard.
**notice the hot pink tank underneath.
Well, that’s all folks. More than you ever wanted to know, I’m sure. But certainly not enough to make you run out and buy anything. But if you do want some real inspiration or want to share yours, head over to Big Mama’s and check out her Fashion Fiesta Mr. Linky!
(ps, did I rock the
photoshopping picknick-ing or what?)
