It may be time to go shopping...

Buying myself new clothes is always pretty low on my financial priority list, and doubly so when I'm not exactly shopping for a number that makes me feel "MILFish" (totally coining a new word). On top of all that, I'm still trying to figure out how to dress cute but still be age appropriate. I DO NOT want to be that grandma wearing the "JUICY" sweatsuit. So all that to say, I have a limited number of cute outfits.

Today we had a birthday party to go to with some of the kids from daycare. Those moms are cute. They all work out, "They run and it shows..." (name that quote), their clothes are cute, and I've never seen one with snot "oh no, that's banana!" on their shoulder. So I wore one of my cute outfits. Skinny jeans that are too long, so I roll them to capri length. A drop-waist shirt that hides the pooch but shows the girls. Funky gladiator type sandals. So imagine my joy when, while at Target for the last-minute gift bag run, a woman stops me to tell me how cute I look. *Grin* + Sisterhood = Happy me. Then she tells me "I have that exact same blouse! I love it!" Yep. She said "blouse." Because she was 85. So that's a fail on "MILFish" and a fail on age appropriateness. Though I looked pretty cute for a geriatric.

Try, try again. I can't afford a new wardrobe so my clothes are baggy. When I see people they first say I look great, then comment on the weight loss and then ask if I'm all right. I think that comment translates into "Are you on crack?" Don't get rid of the granny blouse - I haven't gotten to the juicy sweatshirt phase yet.

Your funny! Personal style can be hard to discover. I like to take notes from others and then put my own spin on it. I've been mixing and layering stuff I currently own giving it new life. Your posts reminds me of a blogger I follow at Harper's Happenings. She hosts "steppin' out saturday here: http://www.harpershappenings.com/steppin-out/

Ha ha, I've never thought to blame the snot trail on banana before! It looks like all my clothes (and furniture) have been attacked by a pack of slugs!)

You are a riot. The elderly woman probably can't see very well as I am certain your MILF "blouse" is not one she could possibly own.
