When you have a few minutes to get dressed, what do you just throw on?
Like your mental ‘go bag’ only it’s your outfit.
In reality… and we’re talking real life here. I don’t have a lot of time to get “ready.” Usually I’m trying to put clothes on this squirmy little monkey that doesn’t want to wear clothes and DEFINITELY doesn’t want to put a new diaper on. The husband is yelling, “Where’s the toothpaste?” Or something… I’m trying to find my keys (which are usually in my bag, but for some reason I’m looking all over the apartment for them), and drink that cup of coffee that will make the difference between being a zombie and a human. Usually I have about three minutes to get dressed before the baby starts screaming and the husband starts saying “LETS GO!!”
So let me set this straight… even if I have that three minutes, and that’s the only amount of time I have, I will go for the jeans/jacket/tee-shirt trifecta. Have a pair of flats and a pair of sunglasses, and decent handbag, and it’s all set. Pretty much most of my jeans and tee shirts go with each other, and my collection of jackets, shoes and bag are really what makes an “outfit.” Yesterday I went to the Academy of Science with my son and my friend and her son, and I guess I wanted to be all professory, because I wore a tweed jacket. Also, because Golden Gate Park is somehow always FREEZING. Especially in Summer. Anyway, I find it’s handy to have an outfit that’s always ready to go, even if it’s always the same outfit, it makes all the difference in terms of feeling good about facing the world.
