It's Coffee Lady's fault. She wrote the perfect post about middle aged dressing - perfect in that it was funny, but contained a kernel of truth. As evidenced by the confessional contents of her comment box.
She got me thinking about her project of taking a picture of what she's wearing every day. Well, more than thinking, if truth be told. She made me leap for my camera and rush to my slightly mucky mirror.
I was going to keep my little investigation private, but then I trust you not to be mean and laugh at me don't I? So before you look I need to make a number of things clear.
- This isn't one of those exercises where some cute girlie shows off how gorgeous they look in their adorable outfits. It's more an effort to show myself how hideous I can look when I pay no attention to how I am dressed. As evidenced by the first two outfits which came from the style camp of 'pile on as many of the half-dirty clothes from the bedroom chair as you can manage, while still retain ing the ability to move your arms and legs'.
- It has been extremely cold and snowy this week (necessitating a great many layers)
- I do own more footwear than a single pair of Crocs. But I don't wear shoes in the house and I use my Crocs as slippers.
- I do also own more than one pair of trousers. But these are warm, allow me to wear leggings underneath when needed and are narrow enough to be tucked into my wellies.
I'm interested to see where this takes me. But I can't face the confessional nature of doing it in public here.
I've got a little private part of Flickr all sectioned off. Unless of course, you're feeling all reflective and confessional too...
