here is what i'm struggling with, american eagle almighty, what to adults wear to church?
FACT: my mom will be there. i have never talked to my mom for more than four minutes without her telling everyone in the room that she is going to sign me up for "what not to wear."
she has a valid point. i don't really live in the real world, fashion-wise. i live in duluth. even the gap couldn't survive here. it closed like a month ago.
i spend approximately:
12 hours a day in pajama pants, wife beater, hoodie.
3 hours a day in running pants, a sports bra, t'shirt, hoodie.
9 hours a day in jeans and a solid colored shirt that most likely includes a hood and/or stocking cap.
i mix it up. i may go out in public in jeans and a wife beater. with a hoodie.
i do not look good dressed up. i look like i'm in the early stages of exploring a transgender lifestyle. i'm better with casual. i live in the right place. as far as i can tell, no one cares what anyone looks like here, which makes it hard to imagine a time or place where anyone cared if anyone else cared what they looked like.
so i want to look nice. nice and clean, actually. i don't want a boob to flop out [my dad's retirement party ... and, well, junior prom] and i don't want my mom to scream at me because i'm wearing jeans [they were editor pants from express. at my grandpa's funeral.] i just want to look like a natural and carefree 33 year old who didn't have to ask the internet what to wear to a first communion.
here are the facts:
skin tone: pasty.
colors that [i think] work for me: greens? oranges? black?
problem areas: i do not look good in a capped sleeve or anything shorter than that. i don't really look so hot in V necks, or scoop necks, although scoop necks are worse.
a skirt, if above my knee, has to hit at just the right spot or i look like i am perched atop stumps.
i like these, although A) is probably too short and B) is probably too short and see-through.
now who wants to be my big sister for the day? HELP! [these two ideas are just the direction i lean aesthetically. not too girlie. not too whatever-that-word-is-i'm-looking-for].
