Hear me out.... I went shopping today. Something I haven't done in a while for a couple of different reasons but I was reminded of one of the main reasons when I was walking around forever 21 and then again in the dressing rooms. What in the world does a 25 year old married teacher wear? Every dress I found was ridiculously too short, all the shirts I saw either had a big hole in the back, was see through, or had so many sparkles and sequins that my kids would have thought I was a bottle of glitter. Then I was at Nordstrom and couldn't decide which section I should be in. I'm over in the junior section with these tiny little girls and then in the women's section, the ladies are looking at me like they want to ask me if I've lost my mom. Which got me thinking.... I'm officially stuck between junior and woman.
Maybe you all can help me out here... Am I just getting boring with my style, just getting lazy about what I wear, or do others struggle with this too?
I guess other factors can be part of the issue also... Location and social life affect closet choices, as do what's available close by. Luckily for me...not much is "close" to where I am which only makes it worse. I try on things and right away, my mind starts questioning... "Where would I wear this? Could I wear it to school? Would it look OK with a cardigan? Am I going any where fun to wear it to? Does it make me look even younger than I already do?"
I love gap, banana republic, and little boutiques that I've found through Facebook but want to have some fun with my clothes too. So I'm going to make this an ongoing post because I want to hear back from you all. Let me know your thoughts and maybe I can share some new boutiques that I find along the way.
Thanks for reading my clothing rant. I know you're so glad you stopped in to read about such an exciting topic.
On another note, I'm almost at 1000 page visits. Woohoo. Thanks for making me feel like less of a nerd for writing random thoughts/feelings/rants on here.
One of the pictures I took in Jamaica... Love these flowers
