The casual department of my wardrobe was lacking cool ass everyday shit that wasn’t in the form of running pants and sneakers. Sorry workout clothes wearing ladies, I loathe the look unless of course you have just left the gym or are on your way to it, which if that’s the case, rock the look proudly and pump some frigging iron! I am confident my casual wardrobe troubles can be attributed to me being pregnant twice over a three year period and having some solid post partum depression after both of my kids were born. Holy crap did that suck. I didn’t have it in me to give a real big fuck what I looked like most days and when I did I couldn’t fit in any of my cute shit. Nothing like feeling like crap and then putting on a cute pair of jeans to make yourself feel better, realizing then you can’t pull them up past your knee caps. That bullshit sent me straight to pissedthefuckoffland. The dust finally settled and the baby weight took a fucking hike (with healthy eating and exercise) giving me the desire and motivation to get it together. When I get dressed I try to do two things consistently, look put together and feel like myself. It is major to feel comfortable in what you are wearing. Please don’t be confused. I am not talking about throwing on a pair of Clarks and your favorite Mickey Mouse T-shirt (If I were Fashion Police President, this would be grounds for time in the clinker). No way Jose! I am talking about making sure what you are wearing is “your style” thus making you feel comfortable while wearing it. Get it? I happen to feel comfortable in shoes that are really friggin uncomfortable. Sometimes, fashion hurts so good. This is my version of “jeans and a sweatshirt”. Simple, chic, sophisticated, and casual. This is the way I love to look and feel while the winter sun is out and I have tons to do. I try to have my style seem effortless. That, to me, is key.
