I’ve been a long time follower of the working closet on Flickr. Since leaving the land of water coolers and stylish clothing I love to see other women looking fabulous. I remember before Nathan was born I was obsessed with what SAHM’s wore. I recall a column on the advice smack down where Amy suggests wearing khakis with cool sneakers and fun tops. I thought I could do that. But, I’d have to go buy some pants that were the right length for flats. And so on and so on. Basically most of what I wear these days is newer things mixed with a little of my old work wardrobe. I thought it would go a lot farther than it has though. I never took into account how much changes in a few years. This is the first time that I’m not shopping for clothes monthly, just for fun. Now it’s more about grabbing a well fitting t-shirt in bulk or a pair of jeans at Old Navy when they are on sale. Not at all the way things were. But, I think I’m doing okay.
So, in both an attempt to keep-up-the-cute and to feel better about myself on a daily basis. I’m starting a new flickr set. I will take a photo of what I am wearing on days when I think I’m getting it right. I will include the details of the outfit and what I am doing that day. Your job is to tell me that I look cute or dumb (bonus pts if you say skinny) and not at all like I am in danger of moving toward the Mom Who Gave Up.
This is what I wore today (gawd, you can see the sulking on my face, the lattes/brownies/cookies on my thighs!) we went to baby lap time and hung out at home.
top- converse- Target
jeans- old navy
shoes- j crew
I love the stripe on the ribbon and the dots on the shoes. I have hopes for doing this. That I will get dressed more often, and stay dressed all day. I have two drawers of yoga and sweat pants. I wear them too much, I tend to dress to go out and then put on comfy clothes when I get home. I am sure my husband would like to see me dressed more often, and if I wear my jeans all day maybe I wont eat as many snacks when they are tight. Yoga pants don’t get tight. This just seemed like a fun thing to do so here it is. I won’t post this every time, it will just show in the sidebar.
