I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. Pretty much, that’s what I wear. Every day. Sometimes I wear cords instead of jeans, but same diff. And I wear tennis shoes. Keds. I like them. They’re comfortable. It’s my momiform, no reason to dress up to chase after small children who like to smear stuff on me, including snot.
Yesterday, I changed it up a little bit. I wore ballet flats. A simple unadorned black pair. Nothing fancy. Like sneakers, except not.
Well, Sam and Ella saw the shoes and by the fuss they made, you’d have thought I was wearing a diamond encrusted tiara with rainbows and unicorns circling around my head.
“Mommy! I L-O-V-E your shoes!”
“Mommy! Your shoes are so pretty!”
“Mommy? Can I try on your shoes?”
When I took them off in the house and then we were getting ready to go out again I heard, “Mommy? Are you going to wear your pretty shoes?”
All of this, from a pair of ballet flats.
The take home message: I may have become one of those moms who needs to reconsider her wardrobe a little. I thought I was doing pretty good since I don’t wear yoga pants all over the place.
Apparently not. It may be time to go shopping for comfortable, practical, yet not frumpy clothes.
Anyone have any suggestions? Do you dress cute or are stuck in a momiform?
