I have discovered a new found love of dresses, and skirts and it’s my new mommy must-have. Either fashion has dictated that’s a new trend, or I have just decided to dress somewhat like my grandmother on my own. Either way, I love it! Over the summer I bought a few new skirts for church, etc. I’m amazed how child-friendly wearing skirts and dresses can be! Obviously the length has to be appropriate but they are so comfortable! Plus I can wear a casual dress to the grocery store, running errands, etc. and put some nice jewelry on and I’m ready for a date with my husband! It’s more versatile than wearing, dare I say it…. SWEATS! Plus a nice, feminine skirt is more flattering anyway.:) I’m now getting all my new mags showing fall fashions and plan to load up so my closet will be well stocked with winter skirts, etc. Just think about it, add some boots or a jacket and it changes it entirely! The thing I love most is that I find my pants never fit perfectly, they are either just tad too small or too big and with skirts it doesn’t matter. No worries about sucking in the tum tum or worrying if your butt looks too big, a skirt is the great equalizer, it flatters all figures! So that’s my discovery of the day.:)
I’m off to get the Christmas cookies out of the oven! Lol.:) We had a gingerbread mix that Gabe has been begging me to make for months! It’s just so messy I’ve been putting it off but today we finally broke out the gingerbread man cookie cutters, rolling pin, and went to town. Time to taste test!
