You might be asking yourself, why is Beckey posting what she wears every Wednesday? I don’t want to know what she wears. Because I don’t value material things, Beckey can wear a Kiss the Cook apron for all I care.
But the reason I do it is two-fold: One is because it’s fun! And two is because I have trouble getting dressed in reasonable clothing everyday. I still have approximately 7 pounds of extra back fat and hip girth that makes zipping my pants a challenge, and I nurse Silas, so I have to be able to fling out my mamary glands at a moment’s notice.
So I feel like I have all these constraints on my wardrobe, and to be honest, it’s just easier to slap on an old concert t-shirt that I’ve cut the neck out of, and some strechy pants, but that’s no fun. Where’s the challenge in that?
So here’s what I wore today:
Cozy black shirt: Ever
Coral mom jeans that go all the way to my waist: Madewell. Thank you Madewell for holding all my biscuit-y parts in.
Super shiny ballet flats: Lanvin
First I had on the yellow flats, then I thought maybe I’d throw on my green satin boating shoes. Because, hey I’m might go sailing today. Just kidding, I hate sailing. It makes me barf.
Then I thought I’d wear my oxford shoes.
But then I realized that both those shoes are stupid because they hurt. And they’re not cute enough to wear when they hurt.
So I put my lemon yellow flats back on because they’re cozy. They’re basically the best flats in all of flats land. And I also threw on this sweater that my mom hates, because she thinks it looks like it’s falling apart. But it’s my favorite, and I try to ignore the fact that when I take my arms out of the sleeve, the sweater Chinese finger traps my arms, and I get stuck. I think it’s my sweater’s way of saying, “please don’t go, I love you.”
I love you back, Sweater.
But this is the cutest thing by far that I wore today:
