Yesterday I wasted seven dollars something on the Shop Til You Drop magazine. I say wasted, because out of the whole magazine, which is dedicated to clothes, shopping and imparting a certain style, I found two items of clothing/accessories that I could imagine wearing and importantly, fit within my meagre budget. Honestly, I just couldn't see anything at all that I felt I could wear.
Then today I'm wearing a new pair of work pants. I've made a mistake with them. They wrinkle when I wear them. I am usually quite obsessive about fabric that wrinkles - if I like an item of clothing in a shop, I will take a corner in my hand and squeeze. If there are wrinkles when I let the fabric go, that's the end of that. Often very cheap fabrics wrinkle, but then you've also got linen which is just a crinkle-fest. These pants weren't so cheap. I suppose I could check the label of these pants, but whatever they are, they are annoying me. I'm not sure how I let this happen! Not only that, I had them shortened (I always, always need my pants shortened!) and they're too long! They keep catching on my shoes. Agh!
I feel so "mumsy" these days. After my disastrous short hair cut, I have made it even worse by going back and trying the fringe look again. After comparing the photos in that post, I actually did think the fringe look suited me. So a week ago I had my hair coloured again and I had a fringe trim again. I hate it, again.
I feel so style-less. I think I want to be a little bit bohemian, colourful, comfortable and just feel my own style. It's not happening! I don't wear heels, I want to be comfortable when I'm out on the weekends playing with my kids. I just cannot seem to find much that I like these days. Do you have a style? Or are you struggling along, just trying to be comfortable?
