So, I've either been in clothes a pregnant person, nursing or new mom would wear since October of 2009. That's almost two and a half years. I've gained and lost 40 pounds, twice.
It's probably safe to say that I have no real 'fashion sense' anymore, wouldn't you agree? Well, even if you don't. I've got two five month old babies and I've probably only worn a combination of about ten different outfits in those five months. Most of my 'outfits' consist of pajamas.
I do probably have some valid excuses, but feel free to skip them if you want to read what my goal is ;)
With it being winter, we don't really get the babies out too much. I'm home with them every day. I typically see no one except for them and Brent. Do they care what type of fashion I have going? Of course they don't.
Do they care if I've showered? Maybe.
I always feel better I shower.
Do I always find time in a day to shower? No.
Did I mention I have two babies, a dog, a husband and a house? Yep. I'm VERY thankful for those things. I also know I tend to them before I tend to myself. That's very easy to do and I'm happy to do it.
I am probably saving myself a few wrinkles everyday by not rubbing make up under my eyes to conceal the dark circles of me being a night owl and waking up early for two precious dumplings.
So, yeah, excuses excuses.
When do I feel my best? When I have clothes on that don't consist of an old pair of pj pants with a hole in them and an old fraternity shirt that belongs to Brent. Yes, that's what I'm wearing as we speak.
I think it's safe to say I should get in the shower and then pick these clothes up off the floor and toss them in the trash. Yes? I'm glad you agree.
My 'fashion goal' for this year is to not scare my neighbors if they ring the door bell and I'm forced to answer.
No really, I want to look presentable. I want to feel comfortable enough to run to the store if my mom stops by and I only have a few minutes notice.
I want to look pretty for Brent. As luck would have it, he's told me I'm pretty enough when I'm looking rough enough that I believe him, haha. Really, though, I don't want him coming home to see me in the same thing he saw me put on for bed the previous night.
I used to be a dress girl. I love dresses. However, they aren't really conducive at the stage the twins are at, as I'm constantly in the floor with them. So, maybe a dress to go out to dinner. While I'm home, even yoga pants and a cute top looks quite a bit better than what I have on. Freshly showered probably smells quite a bit better than I do right now. I kid. I think.
I've got to purge some clothes that I wore when I was pregnant but would not wear now. I've got a closet full. I don't need a lot of new clothes. I need some basics, traditional pieces and a few fun ones for when we do go to a party or out to dinner.
I know changing from my pajamas everyday and having a few pieces to put on will make me feel good on a daily basis :)
So while I may wear my sweatshirt every now and then, I vow not to wear it everyday!
