August Blog Challenge---Fashionistas

The blog challenge for August (from BloggyMoms) has to do with fashion. Well, I guess that totally leaves me out. I am NOT a fashionista. I don't wear high heels except for maybe once or twice a year. I'm not a "dressy" dresser by any means. I wear what's comfortable, period. Tennis shoes, blue jeans, tank tops or t-shirts and hair up in a pony tail. Yep, that's me.

I did take my daughter shopping last weekend. As a high school student, she's got a little more fashion sense than I do. But, being a country kid, she's not much better at it than I am. We live in the country. We like to look nice, but we much prefer being comfortable over being "hip", (is that even the right term).

My idea of fashion involves a tight pair of jeans, my black leather boots, and a sexy sweater. Yeah I don't go out much, but when I do, I turn the head of every biker/hippy/bar fly in town. Fortunately I'm married so I don't have to worry about any of the above. And, the hubby thinks I look just fine so for me, that's enough.

I wish I was a little more on the fashionable side, but the truth of the matter is that I'm just a country girl who loves her denim and T's. I'll never win any beauty pageants, but I don't care. As long as the hubby's happy, nothing else matters. I love the way I look and the way I feel in my clothes. I'll never be the next Sarah Jessica Parker, but let's see her ride a motorcycle in her mini skirt and pumps.

Happy Tuesday, I'm following from Tuesday Tagalong. :) I must say I saw this "Fashion" email from Bloggy moms and I can't fit in either. I'm the girl wearing the blue or black jeans with a tshirt from walmart. I wish I could say different but that's what I can afford. Glad to read I'm not the only one.

No honey, you are not alone. Let's hear it for all the girls out there who would rather wear jeans and a t-shirt than frilly stuff.

Rock on my sister girls.

Leigh said...

Definitely not alone - you just described me. But try adding into the picture two sisters who are fashionistas...

Christine said...

Oh Leigh, I am so sorry. I have 2 sisters also, but neither one of them could be classified as a fashionista. Fashion Fopah, yes, but not a fashionista.
