Since I am hardly fashion savvy when I do talk of clothes it is usually "what not to wear" that I wore. I have always been fairly classic in my clothing; not too big on accessories and purses and shoes and such. I like a bit of retro action and once in awhile a pop of something more interesting. I am a black girl at heart...I always feel sleek and artsy wearing black, aren't I original?
I bought a wonderfully warm bright red full length down coat last year. It took me two years to decide on a new winter coat. I bought it with budgeted money and birthday moolah. It is incredibly....un-useful.....this year. It is too warm and too slippery to carry one or two children in. It is big and bulky and impractical for the flow of my outings.
So I had to buy another coat.
A jacket rather.
It was on clearance for $20 and a size too small yet I LOVE it. This little camel number has opened heavenly gates of "AHA!" and switched up my fashion viewpoint. Kind of the way my viewpoint changed on the necessity of necklaces for my aging neck! CAMEL! CAMEL! Not black or red or purple but (boring old?) camel. I feel ridiculously pretty in such a staple and unassuming item because of the color. With my red hair and the colors I wear I think it does so much more for me than black or any of my other basics. Is it just me or are you guys seeing this too? This was date night tonight. I felt pretty stinkin' cute, yeah?
I am loving this retro hair thing I have going on. John likes it straight but this little (second day dirty hair) 'do makes me feel about as close to a Bond Girl as I am ever gonna get!
Here is my sweet hubs who just robbed a bank.
Annnnnd these two items were in my jean and jacket pockets for date night. Yup your peepers are not lying, those are Buzz Lightyear underpants and a binky. What, you don't take these with you to the movies? (And no, I do not have a boy, just a girl with a big Buzz crush I am OK indulging. Even if it is a bit weird she has a guy on her undies.)
So I have two questions: Your thoughts on black vs camel (!!!) and what is the weirdest accidentally inappropriate item you have discovered on your person.
