If you were to open my drawers, you'd see solid-colored tees, long and short sleeved, with one or two striped ones thrown in for variety. Most of them are either a form or blue or a form of pink. I make it a goal to buy scooped or v-neck, since I don't think crew neck is the most flattering on me. I wear jeans every day. And you've already seen my shoes.
I just got rid of most of my nicer/business-type clothes because a.) I haven't worn any of it for about six years so b.) it doesn't fit, thanks to the awesome body changes that come with three births. Did I mention that I wear jeans every day?
I heard that What Not to Wear is in its last season. Not that I have cable or satellite or anything, but this made me sad because it means the season has probably already been shot and that means I have zero chance that I'll get surprised with a $5,000 wardrobe makeover. Not that my chances were good before, but now they are nonexistent. My friend once told me that I would never have qualified for the show anyway, since you have to be a hot mess to be selected and I admit I am NOT a hot mess. But I am a boring, ordinary, vanilla mess, and I always secretly hoped that someone was secretly video taping me so I could be faced with my blah wardrobe choices and instructed in the ways of fashion on national television. But alas.
I think I'm okay with this ordinary because of where I am in my life. A stay-at-home-mom doesn't really need boots that are in style or shirts of the non-tee variety. My wardrobe fits what I do each day, and I really am content. Can you be content with what you have, yet dream of something different?
