Oh Yeah. She measured me. Sounds scary huh?
My question was how to spruce up my momiform of T-shirt, cardigan and jeans....other than scarves which I already used and jewelry which at the time I did not use. Now that my neck has started to get *AHEM* "character"...
NOTE: If I didn't love Jesus so much there would be a string of profanity here, fyi.
... I use LOTS of jewlery and sometimes a whirligig hat just to distract from it's joke telling. "Hey! did you hear the one about the lady with the young smooth neck skin? Bwahahaha! That is HISTORY. Try a turtleneck!"
Kathy measured me and said I was an hourglass. I think I went on and on about that here. It has changed how I shop and what I try on for the better. As far as that goes....I mean, I am still no fashionista! She has a great article today on freshening up your mom look. Just in time for Mother's Day, thanks Kathy!
The article inspired me to FINALLY post this little ditty on accessories, which I used to frown upon. Forgive the turtleneck, I did this last season...obviously. It still tells a tale, so read on.
The story is a dirty hair day and an easy yet unflattering updo.
Usually I would stop here. Now that I am older and using whatever I've got to look better, I added another layer of sweater jacket, earrings and then.....
I also added a scarf. OOH! And a sparkly pin! I learned that scarf tying configuration from my awesome SIL Michelle. (HI Michelle!) The pin was all me.
Even with the poor picture quality I think it is OBVIOUS how much depth and style a few things can offer even the good ol stay at home mama. I even look happier, right?
I have started wearing some nicer things on normal days like today...a ruffled blouse and linen jacket...why? Because I feel special dressing up a little more even if I am not going anywhere. And because I haven't really done laundry this week. Truth.
I would love to see your fashion before and afters. Aren't pictures GREAT?
(Even bad pictures?)
