Ree’s blog is The Pioneer Woman and there are several parts to her blog. Today I started with Home and Garden. She was talking about her clothes in her closet. I felt the need to leave a comment. This is what I said:
“You would hate my closet Ree! I basically wear t-shirts. Almost all of my t-shirts have some kind of quilt related writing on them. If I’m going somewhere that I need to be somewhat dressy, I wear a t-shirt without writing on it. To me, that’s dressed up. Although I do know that even my normal dress up clothes aren’t dressy enough for funerals and jury duty. I have a few pairs of slacks and regular blouses for that kind of thing, but I can’t tell you what they look like to save my soul. Thankfully, it’s been a few months since I’ve been to a funeral or on a jury.”
I kid you not, to me being dressed up is indeed wearing a t-shirt without words on it! I like it that way. I don’t wear make up often either and when I do, it’s only mascara and a little lip something or other. I do not wear perfumes at all, ever. Period. End of story. I stopped all of that when I moved out to the country because I found that the make up caked up and ended up in a pool under my eyes. I’d go to the grocery store and post office, then come home and discover that I looked like a rabid raccoon! The perfumes just attracted bees and wasps and I did not want to get stung. I later found out that I was quite allergic to perfumes of all kinds. They give me migraines. So, the country life has simplified my life and my clothes and makeup budget. Basically, there isn’t one.
