Throwback Thursday ~ A Housewife’s Wardrobe

As I was hanging up my clothes today I started to think to myself that my wardrobe is just not as cute as it used to be. ¬†Yes I have managed to hang onto some of the cute stuff but rarely do I find myself wearing it. ¬†My closet has become full of what I would call a housewife’s wardrobe.

The majority of my laundry consists of sweats (Old Navy sweats are my favorite), t-shirts that are dated back to the pregnancy with my first child…not to mention they look even older after being washed and warn what seems like a gazillion times, and sweatshirts…the ones that I throw upon myself to rush to the grocery store. ¬†Oh and lets not forget my lovely go to yoga pants…comfy doesn’t get any comfier then a washed and warn pair of yoga pants. ¬†Unfortunately they have never seen the light of day of a yoga class.

I have also found a love for cameos. ¬†Nothing fancy, Kirkland brand from Costco. ¬†But I wear them under EVERYTHING. ¬†Sometimes I feel like it’s just one step closer to wearing “spanx”. ¬†Although I just don’t see how something squeezing every ounce of cellulite could be anywhere near comfort. And where does all the fat go? ¬†And what happens when you take it off? ¬†Isn’t that kind of like false advertisement? ¬†Like the wonder bra and wonder jeans, where one wonders what happened when they are removed. ¬†Of course that only applies to people who are dating, I suppose. ¬†As “married with children” women we have had everything on display already.

Now mind you I have come a long way in motherhood with my wardrobe. ¬†Long gone are the days that I would get dolled up to leave the house and inevitably one of the babies would spit up and I didn’t have time to change. ¬†Nothing like sitting somewhere smelling like soured breast milk.


I complain to my husband about my wardrobe and of course he tells me to go out and buy some new clothes. ¬†But for what? I don’t go anywhere that requires anything more then my current “mommy wear”. ¬†And for our occasional date nights I have a few pairs of jeans and “nice” tshirts for those outings. ¬†I mean seriously am I going to clean the house and attend to the children in fancy clothes? ¬†I am sure there are mothers that do so but as for me I have never been much of a fashionista so why start now? ¬†I would rather spend my money on something more rational…like wine. ¬†**smiles**



We live in a small town…you know the kind where some people can’t even get out of their pajama bottoms to go to the grocery store. ¬†I am quite certain our local Wal-Mart is on a YouTube video somewhere.


I have some really cute pajama pants but I am not about to wear them out in public…unless of course I don’t need to get out of the car…then it’s acceptable. ¬†I say this because once my kids start school I know that I am going to be one of those mom’s dropping my kids off with my pajamas and slippers on. ¬†I am NOT a morning person what so ever and the fact that I will have 3 of them to get ready at the crack of dawn, that just doesn’t leave time for me to worry about what I look like.

Even at 10am this is what I still look like.

UPDATE: ¬†I go to the gym after dropping off the kids these days so I am usually dressed the part…but on Fridays my littlest one doesn’t go to preschool so therefore the other two are dropped off with my pajamas on. ¬†Don’t judge. ¬†I don’t have to get out of the car.

I have also started hating to wear bras…mind you I will not go out in public without one on but as soon as I get home it’s the first thing to come off. ¬†My “girls” don’t like to be all bunched up in a wad. ¬†I mean could you imagine if men had penis bras? ¬†Or had to go everywhere wearing a jock strap? ¬†We would never hear the end of how uncomfortable that was. ¬†Well I feel the same way about my boulder holder. ¬†Therefore when I am home, it is off. ¬†**feels sorry for the random people who come to the door**


Truth is I am a stay at home mom/housewife and I enjoy dressing the part. ¬†Let’s face it…who wouldn’t like to be able to go into work everyday with messy hair and comfy clothes? ¬†My kids don’t care what I look like. ¬†All they care about is that mommy is here to take care of their every need. ¬†The only thing they notice is when I have morning breath and they tell me to brush my teeth. ¬†My son tells me I am beautiful even when I look like a train wreck. ¬†And lucky for me my husband likes the “natural” me. ¬†Meaning a little eyeliner and mascara and although I have long hair it is usually up…and I am ok with it. ¬†I am more comfortable with me now than I was in my younger years. ¬†So to all you moms out there who wonder if your wardrobe has gotten a bit on the frumpy side just remember that as long as your kids are happy who cares if your shirt has a hole in it?

The “not so fashionista”,


UPDATE: ¬†I wrote this piece when I first started my blog. ¬†I have since purchased some new clothes and actually because this year I made a decision that I was going to promise to myself to get in shape I will be purchasing some more clothes. ¬†Something about losing weight and feeling healthy on the inside makes you want to look better on the outside. ¬†But I still love my pajama days…which is usually only Sundays these days.
