Yes or No: ‘Rompers’

Remember when I wrote about jumpsuits? Well…

I shopped with my sister-in-law a few days ago. We went to the store where I bought my favorite black lace shorts, Tula (that’s the name of the store, not the name of my shorts;I don’t name my clothes…). Carmen got a pair of Current and Elliott jeans — my brother and I talked her into buying a really good pair and they looked awesome on her — and a cute black tunic. Anyway, I tried on a bunch of stuff, including what I thought was called a jumpsuit but is apparently called a romper these days.

Evolution of an Outfit

Yes, it’s been nearly two weeks since the last time I wrote anything. I blame it on my children. Every time I take a picture of an outfit, they give me a hard time, as in, “mom, you take more selfies than my friends and I do.” And, since summer vacation started a couple of weeks ago, they’re always home.

Actually, Michael has offered to take my pictures for me. He says I need to spice up my fashion pictures and make them more interesting. So he took this one:

Mean Pinterest Girl

WELL! I knew this would happen at some point if I kept posting pictures of myself, but I still got my feelings hurt: someone on Pinterest repinned a picture of one of my outfits on a board titled, “Bad Fashion.” I was hoping the term “bad,” meant as in, “yeah, you rock that outfit, bitch,” but no. It actually meant bad.

Banned from Wearing These Lace Shorts

Okay, that headline is a little dramatic (what can I say? I’m a Leo). I’m not really banned from wearing the shorts – I just have to wait until Sunday. Paul and the kids bought me an outfit for Mother’s Day — lace shorts ($78) and slouchy but pretty T-shirt ($58) — which I picked out and tried on. When we left the store, Paul took the bag and hid it away. (Darn him!)
