This past Saturday, we were invited to a crawfish boil. Obviously, a crawfish boil isn’t cause for getting dressed up, but while standing in my closet, attempting to find something decent to wear, I realized just how outdated my wardrobe is. You see, since my daughter was born, I have a huge tendency to go clothes shopping for her while not doing the same thing for me.
Years ago, I worked in clothing retail and purchased new clothing pieces regularly. Since becoming a mom and leaving my huge retail discount behind, I find I only buy myself one or two new items per year. So far this year, the only new thing I’ve purchased is the dress I’m going to wear to my nephew’s wedding next month, nothing more. I could sure use an update to my wardrobe. As for the crawfish boil, I wound up wearing a pair of denim capris that I purchased last summer and a shirt that I’ve owned for probably 8-10 years, in a neutral beige color. Pretty boring, especially when you consider all the beautiful colors that are available this summer.
I recently discovered AMI Clubwear for everything from a summer dress to tank tops to shoes and accessories. This morning I found this white collar shirt that would have been perfect for me to wear to the crawfish boil and would be a great piece to wear anytime. A classic look, a white shirt is a must have piece and this one would help me update my closet. Guess my next big project need to be to get rid of a bunch of old clothes and get updated!
