"I'm just a creep in a t-shirt, jeans, I don't fuckin' care." - Portugal. The Man
It's sad fashion times these days as this was my only blog worthy outfit this week. The others were pretty boring stuff - basically just t-shirts and leggings. I've been buying a lot of t-shirts lately. In fact, I am now the proud owner of the Trapeze Baseball Tee in 4 colors. I tell myself that I'm stocking up on t-shirts for the hot, sweaty times ahead on vacation, but I'm beginning to think that these super soft, roomy tees are all I really want to wear...for the rest of my life.
Comfort is becoming an increasingly important factor in my fashion choices as I get older which is a little scary to me because I have always been a girl that puts fashion over function. During my college days, most people were sporting t-shirts, khaki shorts, and tennis shoes around campus, but I preferred crop tops, bell bottoms, and platform shoes. I had several classmates ask me if I owned a pair of tennis shoes to which I proudly replied, "Nope." Even throughout my child bearing 20's, I held strong in my fashion convictions. It wasn't uncommon to see me teetering around 8 months pregnant in stiletto heels. My sister joked around that I was going to give birth with my high heels planted firmly in the stirrups.
Well, here I am at 36, and I think I have finally given up the fashion ghost. The wedges I wore this day are the type of shoes I could have easily run around in and even played sports in 10 years ago. Now, I can barely walk my 36 year old ass across the parking lot at work in these suckers. It's sad days people...sad days. Oh well, I had a good run. I guess all good things must come to an end. I just hope I'm not wearing orthopedic shoes anytime in the near future. Jerry - I'm looking at you. ;-)
