While combing Brianna's hair, she told me this. . .
Brianna: You look nice today
me: Thank you, birdie
Brianna: you're welcome mama. yeah, you look different
Brianna: yeah, I like your pink blouse. and your skirt
Brianna: and you're always wearing black.
Brianna: or white. and red. but you look nice today
me: uh, thanks
Brianna: I wear all the colors, mama, not just black and all my friends always like my clothes. you should try it
me: (thinking: sheesh) thanks, birdie. I'll try it
I started thinking about the clothes I've worn the past few days and I have to admit that she is right. Yesterday I wore a red skirt and blouse outfit, Halloween I wore a black pantsuit (to my defense, I was wearing kitty ears, so I had to wear black), Monday I wore black slacks and a black Polo blouse (the Polo logo was torquoise, though) Sunday I wore a black skirt and a black, gray and red blouse, Saturday I wore khaki colored pedal pushers (a-ha!) and my favorite black Banana Republic blouse. I can't remember past that. Yikes, I do wear a lot of the same colors. Little does Brianna know that I am the lost member of the White Stripes. I know that black is slimming and all, but that's not the reason why I choose it. I mean, I'm just attracted to black clothes. I love the way they look like really classic. Plus, there are a few pieces of jewelry that I've been wearing for a while now and I like how they look against black. This is a common issue, right? I'm not the only one, am I?
feeling: I can't believe my 7 year old is giving me fashion tips
