Who doesn't love being in comfy clothes? Looking cute in comfy clothes can be a skill. The trick is to take a shower, do your hair and make-up, choose fun earrings, and make sure your shoes are on the cute side of comfy.
Have you ever walked out thinking "Dang, I'm cute today", only to catch a glimpse of someone in the shop window that looks as if they threw a potato sack on, and realized that the image in question was actually the reflection of the not so cute you, in your not so cute comfy clothes?
Yesterday I got all dolled up in my cute comfy clothes, you know, the long boutique-y blue jersey shorts and the white cotton t-shirt that is cut just right? The adorable white Pumas with a little pink stripe, the comfy shoes that hug my tiny feet, just so? You know, the outfit that I wear on the days I want to make an effort but also want to be comfy and casual?
I'm breaking up with that outfit. That get-up should never have seen the light of day. Maybe it's the extra Oreos I consumed this winter, but those shorts should be burned. And the shirt? Officially in the rag pile.
My tried and true recipe for comfy cute has been destroyed. The image of myself in the window as a smushy puffy marshmallow slob shocked me! I looked at several angles, several windows, a mirror, my reflection on a car... I know, sorta loony but I was traumatized! How can I look one way when I leave the house and another in that reflection?
Is it my age? Have I reached that age where I can't pull of comfy cute anymore? I'm short, I'm cute, I'm casual. What happened? My body has changed more than I realized.... will I ever be able to pull of comfy cute again?
Do you have a favorite comfy cute outfit? How do you pull off comfy cute?
