How’s your summer uniform/ wardrobe working out for you?
Me? Not so great. The style-and-the-SAHM action around here has been less style and more SAH lately.
But I did learn a valuable lesson the other day.
Here’s what I’ve been wearing from time to time:
Oh yikes. This just screams “MOM”! My kids scream “MOM!” quite enough. I don’t need my clothes to scream it too.
I couldn’t figure out what was wrong until I remembered Fran wore a similar-yet-cute outfit with the same shirt.
Audrey said it so long ago, but I had to learn the hard way–
TUCK IN YOUR SHIRT . . . and put on a belt.
Isn’t that better? It still says, “Mom,” but . . . softly.
Admittedly, tucking your shirt in is not right for all outfits. And maybe not necessary for a shorter, more fitted shirt. But when in doubt, I think tucking in is usually a good idea. I think.
I make mistakes so you don’t have to (as in How To Look Less Bad, Part 1).
Go tuck in your shirt. You can thank me later.
