Fashion Fiesta!

It’s time for Big Mama’s Fashion Fiesta.  Woot!

With the plethera of fashion posts here on the ol’ blawg this week, one might actually think I know something about fashion.  Which is pretty laughable, and that fact will be evident as soon as you get a sneak peak inside my closet.

Yes, you heard me right.  Melanie, aka Big Mama, wants us to show her what’s in our closets.  She wants to see our regular clothes.  Our daily uniforms, per se.  I have been talking a lot lately about how I wear jeans and t-shirts ALL the time.  The big decision I have to make every morning is, do I wear my light wash or my dark wash today?  Do I live on the edge, or what?

So this assignment is quite easy for me.  I only have 15 pairs of jeans and about 110 t-shirts in my dresser.  I can basically close my eyes and grab any shirt and any pair of pants, and they match.  See?  Bonus!

Here you can see what I’m talking about.  This is my infamous blue jean collection.  (I also found white jeans that I bought at the end of the season last year that I forgot I had.  But they didn’t make it into the picture.)

Okay, so there are only seven.  But still.  More than my fair share.  And certainly the majority of my pants collection.  I do have a pair of khakis and a couple pair of dress slacks as well.

Here you have the T-Shirts.  These are only my short-sleeved Ts.  This doesn’t even cover the tank tops and the long-sleeved Ts.  Or the short-sleeved Ts I keep for working out and housecleaning.   But you get the general idea. 

Do you think that perhaps I like coral?

This here is my basic winter uniform.  I love cashmere turtlenecks because they keep me nice and toasty warm.  Jeans, of course.  And my very favorite comfy flats that I have been wearing almost daily since I got them for Christmas.

AND my summer uniform.  My standard V-neck T-shirt and denim (OF COURSE) cropped pants that I literally have worn to death since I got them two summers ago.  Honestly, I’m sure my neighbors think I have nothing else in my closet.  I wear them at least five days a week once the weather hits 70 degrees.  I don’t know what I’ll ever do when they die.  We might have to have a burial in the backyard.

Oh, and there are my flip flops.  I have several pair of these in different
colors and prints.  I adore JCrew flip flops.  I also have their white
rubber ones for when the colored and patterned ones don’t go with what
I’m wearing.

When I meet the girls for drinks on a warm summer night, or go on a date with my hubby, I generally throw on my longer blue jeans (see? variety!) and a nice tank top and some cute wedge sandals.  Here’s my favorite summer going-out look. 

For winter, replace the sandals with high-heeled boots and the tank top
with a sweater, and there you have it.  I don’t think there’s a need to
photograph that.  Actually, there is not a need to photograph any of
this, but hey.  I’m nothing if not a follower.  Big Mama says to jump,
and I ask how high.

And just for fun.  My favorite accessories — shoes and handbags.  I’m just sticking with the summer ones.  This post is long enough.  Just to keep it real, I included my favorite cozy slippers.

So yeah.  WAY more than you ever wanted to know about my closet, I’m sure.  Olรฉ!

Melanie also asked us what we would LIKE to wear, money being no object of course.  Well, now.  I don’t even know where to begin.  If I had the occasion and the figure and the money, so in other words, in my dreams, I would run around in a frock like this.  With these.  Or maybe this with these.  And this.  And fab jewelry.  You get the general idea.

But for now, jeans and t-shirts it is.

  1. I love those wedges! I have my eye on some but they are a bit too pricey for now. Maybe I can get a cut of Husband’s bonus. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I feel like I could find you anywhere now- since I know what you will be wearing!
    Too cute how you let us all see what’s behind the closed doors!

  3. Cute! I love coral, too. In fact, you are going to covet my pinkish coralish sneakers that I bought. I will probably bring them to Disney, but after wearing them on the plane to a hot airport and hot Houston this weekend, I am reminded about the accuracy of my theory about the necessity (for me) of the sandal when I’m hot. Tennies and socks just make me too hot.

  4. Woah…. the variety in your closet is almost too much for me ๐Ÿ˜‰ At least you know what works for you. You can never go wrong with jeans and a t-shirt. However I would like to challenge you to find one of those cute flowy shirts that are in style in a print, or even one that is solid colored but with some embelishment. I know you had bad luck with your J-Crew shirt, but there are such CUTE shirts out there right now. I picked up a few really cute ones at Kohl’s the other week.

  5. I’m the same way. I like my wardrobe to be nice and easy.

    Every once in a while I’ll buy a patterned shirt and it will make my closet look more colorful and that is about it.

    My wardrobe is definitely lacking variety as my post today proves.

    You’ve got good variety. I especially like how you use your purses and shoes to spice things up.

  6. So fun! I meant to do this today but our delightful spring weather kept me outdoors (in jeans and a tshirt of course!)

    (ps—I woke up thinking about that you were flying to FL today. And I was trying not to get jealous about it. Then I saw it’s next Friday..do you get a layover in Atlanta? We could switch places then. You know, in case you chicken out on the way there. Just trying to help.)

  7. You totally put me to shame. I have 2 pairs of jeans. My fave everyday pair and a pair of trouser jeans. Sadly my trouser jeans are getting too big and I have to decide if I want to have them taken in our buy a new pair next season. That was fun :).

  8. Glad to know I am not the only one with the plethora of solid colored t-shirts.

    Love the red shoes with the jeans.

    And are the brown and tan flip-flops in the middle Bass? If so, I totally have them and they are comfortable.

    Great post.

  9. ooooh, those red wedge sandals are TOO cute. the contents of your closet looks a lot like mine (normal clothes that is, not the maternity stuff!).

  10. I love, love, love the flip flops…Yes, it would seem we both have an obsession. My husband has officially banned me from bringing another pair into the house…so, I guess I will leave them in the car!

    Thanks for visiting my site. The skirts were my first jump away from jeans, and they too seem to go with any t-shirt I grab out of the drawer. Less thinkin’.

    PS: I love your bags! Let me know if you ever have a garage sale.

    Handbags are so fun. I forgot all about them for today though… (sigh)

    It WAS a fun little party, wasn’t it? And thanks for stopping by!
