Fail, fa-FAIL!-fuh -fail.
I rolled out of bed this morning and put on what I put on almost every day: jeans, dark blue tee, gray cardigan. Plus a scarf or necklace or something. Today, something just didn’t feel right. I asked Pat to snap a picture (photos are more objective than the mirror; don’t ask me why).
This, this! is what I saw:
Huh? What the. . . ? I can’t even . . . . How? How is this happening to me? ??!!!
I love this cardigan because it feel like a comfy bathrobe . . . Earth to Laura: It looks like a comfy bathrobe!
You see? As soon as I let my guard down, BOOM!: the frumpies are back.
So, keeping things positive . . . here’s my action plan:
- Loose cardigan only with slim-fitting jeans; only slimmer fitting tops with aforepictured jeans (there goes that completely mix and match wardrobe I was going for);
- Ditch this scarf, and
- Brush up on scarf-tying skillz;
- Only Sperrys with these jeans, no more Birks (too warm yet for boots, new shoes not in budget); and
- Hair . . . do . . . something.
For next year,
- More fitted cardigan
- More color
- Cute flats (leopard?)
- Replace jeans
- . . . never leave house.
Until next time, this is Laura Christine, reporting to you live from Frumpsville. Signing off.
(Here’s the post going over what I learned from this fiasco: How to Look Less Bad. Also, I sold the cardigan on eBay for like $15. Not a total loss.)
