Here is my Mommy dilemma. In the grand scheme of life it's no big deal. But in the "Mommy" stage I can't figure out where to shop and what to buy. I'm not shopping until I get the rest of this weight off. So the good news about my dilemma is that it leaves me a little time to decide! I'm hoping that around Christmas when I get birthday and Christmas money I can take advantage of sales AND knowing where we are moving. Then I'll have a better idea of what I need for a new place and new weather!
Charleston is a very one-note place for clothes. At least it has been for me. I can't bear to go into a shop and try on a wool sweater or tights when it is 80 degrees out...which is today...in October! I pretty much wear my "summer clothes" from March/April until November. This leaves the summer clothes pretty worn out each year and I am SO sick of them by the time cooler weather comes around. Summer clothes tend to be pretty casual and most of the events that we attend are casual. Peter and I don't tend to eat out at fancy places and we really don't have very many occasions to "dress up". I realized the other day that we've been invited to a cocktail party to celebrate someone getting married and I don't have 1 dress that isn't cotton!!
Back to the Mommy dilemma. Not only have I dressed more casually in Charleston but now I am a Mommy. Spit up and pee, both of which covered my shirt and jeans yesterday, don't lend themselves to cute sweaters and designer jeans! Not only do I not want them ruined but most days I am at home or running errands. I don't need the dress pants and high heels that I wore when I worked. (Ok, ok, so maybe I cheated occasionally and wore jeans at work but still!) But at the same time I still want to be able to get dressed up and even dressed for the day and feel "dressed".
I see all these cute clothes in magazines but I can't figure out where the Mommy-clothes balance is. Any ideas? For all your Mommys what do you wear on a daily basis? I can't wait to hear what you are wearing so I can gear up for my super shopping trip!!
Speaking of things I want....head on over to my friend Courtney's blog for a chance to win this!!
I'm a lover of Jesus, my sweet husband, my fabulous little boys, costume jewelry, cooking, reading, traveling and all things Kentucky. I really dislike green peppers, wet paper products and weird word abbreviations. If you're hungry for food, funny or family you are in the right place!
