This tee shirt was a springtime gift from my mom. I love Life is Good and can certainly wear casual tee shirts in the summer, yet come August, it still had tags on it. Why? Well, it is a very casual tee shirt, and when I'm having very casual days (hanging at home, going to the playground, etc), I dress like I'm going to do yard work. I guess I feel like new stuff is too nice for a casual day, but I still feel frumpy all day in worn out old clothes.
A few days ago, the kids and I planned on going to the park, getting icees from Cumbie's, and having a picnic. A hang out day. My husband was golfing after work, so he wouldn't see my outfit, either. Until recently, that would have been a dumpy-tee-shirt day. Instead, I took the darn tags off. Thanks for the tee shirt, Mom!
Oh, also, if you want to see how far I can take this outfit-martyrdom, mom also bought me these amazing Penelope Chilvers boots for Christmas last year (there's a link to a similar pair below-- they're super-cute, too!), but I think I only wore them three times the whole winter. I didn't want to wear them on hang out days, rainy days, snowy days... so I barely wore the awesomest pair of boots I owned. So silly. If you wear clothes to make you happy, you should be wearing your best stuff every day. See? I'm starting to change my thinking :)
I'm an English teacher, a wife, a dog lover, a bibliophile, & a wanna-be fashionable mom. Well, I'm already a mom. Just trying to get the "fashionable" part going...
