Mimi at 247 Mulberry Lane had this cartoon on an older post. I just love it. I've really had to retrain myself not to save work outfits on Pinterest since I've retired. And don't even tell me you don't do Pinterest because I don't want to be the one to lead you down the path to addiction.
My retirement wardrobe consists of four nice shorts (chunked most of the old ones I wore around the house on weekends, but saved a couple for yard work), two pairs of mid-calf jean and four pairs of long jeans (everything with elastic waist of course). I had shirts but donated the fancier work shirts then I bought four rayon short sleeve shirts for a nice casual, but not dressy, to run to the store, etc.
It will be a while before I go through the t-shirts I have on stock but if that hole in my lip gets any larger, stains may cause the majority to go by the wayside.
I kept one dress for weddings and funerals but would like to replace it with something less structured. My body has gotten soft and wiggly and fitted clothes just don't look that great on me anymore.
I've still got way more shoes than I need and I have donated the ones that are less comfortable because I still wear one pair of my slides most days. What I really hate is that I have to wear socks now all the time. Oh, I do like socks, but not with slides/mules. My feet, like my body, don't like the structure of a good pair of tennis shoes anymore.
After that little foot scare I had, the foot doctor told me the slides were perfect for protecting my foot (being diabetic, I now have to baby my feet) but to always wear socks.
Ok so now I feel like the old man wearing sandals and dress socks. I complain to my friends and the say it doesn't matter, it doesn't look stupid, but I feel it sometimes.
Which circles back to the pinning clothes on Pinterest I don't need because I won't wear them in my current four pairs of shorts life.
Well, the truth is I have a lot more clothes than I've just admitted to - I should have said those are the clothes I actually wear. I am planning to empty more items out of my drawers but first I have to fill up any empty drawer space with new items on Pinterest. Vicious circle.
