In my reading of the blogs, I’ve found this …thing… where girls post what they wore on Wednesdays over at The Pleated Poppy. I just got on there, and there were almost 300 chicks showing off what they wore today.
Wanting to be loved and accepted and awesome, I’ve decided to be a part. This is what I wore today:
I noticed some trends in the photos that I’m trying to copy here. 1. All (okay most, okay some) girls had their hands out. I’ve learned that this makes you look skinny. In an effort to look TOTALLY skinny (which isn’t easy for me, because you know, the food) I decided to put my arms WAY out. Totally works.
Now, to the ensemble. I paired an Old Navy green hoodie with my black and white checkered pants. They’re capris, which show off my fantastic ankles. The hoodie has horizontal stripes, which draws your eyes out, and preferably away, from my love handles.
I am of course, doing a fish face. There is an unwritten rule on the internets that fish faces are necessary if you’re a narcissist that loves posting pictures of yourself. I hold fast to that rule.
I used my Chi straightener (give me some money Chi, or at least products) and got bored about a third of the way in. I then used one a twisty tie from the loaf of bread I was eating to hold up my hair. I stacked it up high on my head to accentuate my receding jawline.
And, lest anyone should ask me to do ANYTHING for them, I did nothing to cover up the bags under my eyes from the several sleepless nights (ie, bad choices) so as to say, “I’m tired. Don’t bother.” Most people automatically assume I’m not sleeping because of my precious children. Lies. I’m not sleeping because of Pinterest.
I also made sure the inside of my toilet was shown because, jerks, IT’S CLEAN. Which is EXACTLY why I don’t dress up. Why the hell would I feel a need to look spiffy while I cleaned the crap out of the toilets? Sorry. No. I dress for the job I have.
If I dressed for the job I wanted, I’d wear a swimsuit and a snorkel, but it’s cold and I don’t live in the Bahamas.
Hey, so we’re totally doing this- next week I’ll have a link up for “What I REALLY Wore Wednesday”. Get your posts ready!
Someone remind me on Tuesday.
SHARE THIS SO HARD!
