It's Friday night. I don't know about you, but it was a difficult week - four day weeks always seem to be especially hellacious. It's like the universe just wants to cram those 5 days of potential aggravation into four days of reality, yes?
So it's a Friday night and I'm in my pajamas at 8:30 at night, with my dinner of HoneyCrisp apple slices and BellaVitano Balsamic Cheddar chunks, my favorite playlist on shuffle with my great big 1970's style red headphones on, a Crown and Ginger and a serious dilemma on my hands.
I need some new clothes, y'all.
I work from home. I wear whatever is around - shorts, t's, etc. I have a couple of cute skirts and I often wear them with the t's, but I would really like to dress it up a bit - not much, but a bit. The t shirts tend to look baggy and unflattering and, yeah. I'm so, so so tired of wearing shorts and my capri pants look loose and tired and I would like to look just a bit more polished and pulled together.
I'm traveling for work twice this month and would like to get a few new pieces, because we all know that getting new clothes makes the trip that much more exciting. I know I need black pants, because my black pants are wool - for winter - and ain't nobody got time for that in the two areas that I will be visiting - hot, and humid, and no.
But I don't know what to wear or where to go. I think I'm missing part of the girl gene. I recently bought new bras and sneakers and dress shoes and sandals, but the rest is just - boggling me. I spent some time at the mall and the clothes that aren't for women much younger and more toned than I am are for weather that is still a few months away.
I went to my Pinterest board, on which I've pinned a lot of really nice outfits, thinking that I'd follow those links to order some clothes - and if you discard the 1950's dresses and the boots, which, hello, I adore both but neither works for this - I am left with a bunch of outfit images that feature clothing sold out or the links are dead. I spent a butt ton of time google searching the images, and got nada.
So. If you were me, and not super thin, with heavier legs and a bodacious booty and not stick thin arms and an overly endowed chesticle area, and wanted to get some cute things to wear on two back to back business trips in order to present yourself appropriately and not embarrass everyone in your daily outfit of Harley-Davidson t shirts and ill fitting bottoms - where would you go?
Or, alternately, what would you buy?
Can you please, pretty please, help a (begging on bended knee) sista out?
