I guess by today's standards I belong on the TV show What Not To Wear. Somehow my jeans and long sleeve t's and capris or shorts and tank tops, all with flip flops, are just not up to snuff.
Emily came home last week telling me all about the shoes that everyone who is anyone is wearing at school.
Sperry Top Siders. These "lovely" little things come in a variety of colors and will only cost you a mere $80. That is right $80 for shoes that look like you should be sailing on a boat somewhere in the Florida Keys. Basically everyone is wearing boat shoes. What's next? Penny Loafers?
Next lets discuss skinny jeans. A style that never should have come back in style.
These jeans are everywhere, including on men. I'm not even sure how some of them are put on. Paint maybe. Just looking at them makes me feel like I am suffocating, let alone actually wearing them on my body. I hope this is a fast moving phase.
And how about sweater dresses?
I remember having one of these in 7th grade. I think mine was pink with butterflies. Back then I was actually in style. And on occasion I would be really stylish and wear my sweater dress with my stirrup pants. I'm just not feeling this style either. Luckily we have such a short season here to wear such an item I have an excuse not to be trendy this time.
And last but not least, how about the style of shirts.
I work hard to not look pregnant, why would I wear a shirt that makes me look so? Pleated tops, empire shirts ... blech. It's too bad because I really love that first shirt. I just refuse to look like I am expecting my 5th kid.
I have heard that sexy corsets are soon to be a big hit as well. Yuck! So sign me up for the next episode I guess. Otherwise I will forever be unstylish.
