When the weather hints of spring, as it has this past week, my motivation to clean, organize, and freshen up soars. My motivation to complete actual work plummets, however, so there's probably a net yield of zero in terms of motivational increase. Law of Conservation of Motivation, or something.
Clothes that were welcome and cozy in September and October now seem dull, drab, and entirely too familiar. In short: I want to overhaul my wardrobe. Out with the old; in with the new.
And when I say new, what I mean is that I just bought skinny jeans.
(Thank you, local college students who sell your gently-used clothing to
our resale shop so I can pick off cheap items that you no longer deem
fashionable.) I wore them today with a striped tee shirt and a pendant
necklace -- and, I'll admit, I felt rather cute.
My husband adheres to the premise that skinny jeans are odd-looking.
Perhaps he's right, but I'm getting suckered into the trend. They're nice for tucking into high boots, for certain, and I think I pulled them off today with flats.
Now, given this, I recognize that this space will not suddenly morph into a fashion blog.
When my criteria for clothes indicate that cost, comfort, and the ability to be laundered to remove stains and encrusted Play Doh are equally as important as style, I'm clearly no expert. But, gosh, I did feel cute today.
Here's to swinging into spring...
