Yes, it was the only thing that would go with my stretchy yoga pants, but that can no longer be an excuse. Because, I say "go" but I only mean that in the most obtuse fashion sense. It "goes" better than a button up shirt. Its also easy to nurse in, and I know, I know! Convenience aside, when you start looking really bad, its time to stop being so lazy. I got to this point by neglect. I neglected to take it out of my drawer. Matthew and I stayed up late watching Jim Gaffagin (neglecting to get to bed on time), and then I neglected to get up early, and had to hurry and get Abigail out to horse camp this morning - and it was there!!!
In a rush to get out the door, I grabbed what was clean and handy. Only, we went to a family reunion in Idaho this weekend, so there wasn't a whole lot of "clean" to choose from. And as I was rifling through my drawers there it was. Its a white shirt that I bought while I was expecting. The ribbed sleeves, neckline and waist looked fairly cute for someone who was clearly having a baby, and clearly wanting her shirt to cover underneath the bulge. But many washes and a 3 month old baby later, I have been meaning to toss it. Its time, its old, and it is NOT flattering. Its down right trashy lookin'. But then I just put it on ... one more time; until I go shopping for a better one, or until I can wear a smaller size, until I find something athletic that "goes" with yoga pants (yet can also be respectable in the grocery store,) etc. etc.
Then, like today, I catch myself in the mirror and jump back with a, "GAAAH! I should NEVER wear this ugly shirt in public AGAIN! I look like I just waltzed out of the trailer park!!! Oh me, why don't I have the sense god gave a lemon when it comes to getting dressed?" So. I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna wash it. And. And DI it. Just so long as I can get it in the DI bag before I need a convenient shirt to nurse in. Dang. Maybe just keep it for days where I don't leave the house in it...
