What The Well Dressed, Middle-Aged Woman Is Wearing.

On Sunday afternoons after worship team rehearsal, morning service and lunch, I try to take a nap.  I always put on something comfy for my nap because taking a nap in non-comfy clothes is just wrong on so many levels.

For my comfy clothing selection, I especially like sweat suits.  They feel like pajamas, but if your doorbell rings unexpectedly, you can answer the door in your quasi-pajama, napping-ish clothes and no one is the wiser.

So. I took my Sunday nap cozily ensconced in my sweat suit.  Ahh.

Then I got up, put on my fuzzy socks and puttered around the house for a little while.  Ahhh again.

Then Steve took Sarah to youth meeting.  I puttered some more.  Continued ahhh.

Then Sarah called and said she needed a ride home.  Since Steve had the Dropping Off Duty, I elected myself for the Picking Up Duty.  But it was a wee bit chilly outside, so I pondered the coat closet selection for a moment before finally settling on a gray, fur-like coat someone in the church had passed along to me.  I’d been wanting to find a time to wear it and so I thought, “What better time than now?”

So I plopped the dressy coat on over my sweat suit.  And then I realized that I couldn’t go out on the cold sidewalk with just fuzzy socks on, so I put some gold flip flops on over the fuzzy socks to keep the bottoms of my delicate little feet from getting frostbite from our wickedly cold, bitter Southern winters.

And then I grabbed my “mom purse” and I was good to go.

I picked Sarah up, brought her home and we got out of the car to go into the house.  She glanced over at me to say something and then looked again.  A little closer.

And she said something like, “Um.  Mom, do you know how you’re dressed?”

What?  The girl doesn’t think her mama is rockin’ this style?

I just don’t know what’s wrong with this younger generation.

TOO FUNNY....Love It! Love me some comfy clothes!

Looks perfectly fine to me! By the way, does Sarah still mention hearing her hair? Mine has been bothering me lately and I happened to think of her!

Kids these days! I can remember a time or 10 that I have just got comfortable, ready to do nothing and get a call from one of my kids needing a ride back from where ever they happen to be. I have prayed many a time that I not for any reason have to stop and get out of my car or get pulled over. For some reason when I leave my house looking like I'm one step shy of crazy I get paranoid. i will say Becky honestly you do have a nice look going there. you're at least two steps shy of crazy! Nice hair and makeup really saved you! :)

Becky, I have been meaning to say thank you for some time now, so THANK YOU for once again bringing a smile to my face. I always look forward to your posts. I happen to think you were rocking that sweat suit...from one mom to another.(note the perfectly spaced ellipses)

I especially like the socks with gold sandals. That look is always lovely, but when topped off by a fur coat all I can say is WOW! Styling Miss Becky!

Runway models look out!

Linda

PS-I've looked a thousand times worse.

I'm surprised no one so far has mentioned the silver bag. It coordinates so well with the black sweat suit and jacket! You look like someone from "old money," Becky! That is, you don't look like green and wrinkly bills, you look like someone who is wealthy, and whose family has been wealthy for generations.

Bethany said...

I usually try and sleep a bit on Sunday afternoons too. I am fully convinced there is nothing better than a good nap! :) Anytime I'm not working I'm dressed like that too, nothing wrong with it in my eyes ;)

Personally, I think you look mah-velous! But if you say "middle-aged" again....I'll get depressed. :) Lisa~
