|Oh gosh, this is so gorgeous, it hurts!|
This is a direct shout-out to T, who recently made the off-hand comment, “My wardrobe is so five seasons ago”. As any Mom of the Year worth her salt and on a budget knows, however, this is all too, too sadly true…I see the gorgeous outfits pinned on Pinterest and my heart just aches a little bit more each day as I pull on my not-so-rocking (let’s be honest here,

people) pajama jeans and crappy old t-shirts from college (yes, I’m 32–beyond lame, I know–go hate on someone else). But when the choice comes down to adorable dresses for my daughter or cute fashionable tops for Mommy…mmmhh….getting even more real–even if I had the money and made a concerted effort, I couldn’t pull together anything that amazing if I tried. I could get really depressed about this, but instead am choosing to see the value in the promotion of old school fashion…Yes, that is my role in this life–holding up the like of decades-old neon bracelets and jelly shoes for generations to come…all while grooving out in my kitchen to Queen’s Another One Bites the Dust. Just doing my part to make this a more welcome world for all us hardcore hold-out Generation X’ers who are so, so “last century”…
