Happy New Year! Don't you love fresh, clean pages and symbolic new starts? We could choose to do that any day, but enshrined dates like New Years Day are full of hope and promise. No formal resolutions for me - I have OCD already and do not need any more To Do Lists. But to learn more and love better are my ongoing goals, every year.
I interviewed my darling nieces about fashion on our way down to Grandma's house this past weekend. Kara is ten and Katie is 13, two beauties who are also aces at school and sports.
I asked them, "What three items would you need to keep in your closet to get dressed every day, and feel good?" They both said straight-cut jeans, Aeropostale tees, and a hoodie. So, that was easy. They have already streamlined their wardrobe decisions.
Then I asked, "What would you not wear to school for a million dollars?" Katie did not hesitate: "Crocs." Kara said, "I'd wear anything for a million dollars." Hmmm, their dad is a CPA and his thinking has clearly affected the younger one!
So, what would I not wear to work for a million dollars? "I'd wear anything for a million dollars." Okay, but what would I be very unhappy about wearing? If I only get to pick one item, I suppose it would be:
|The print does match nicely at the seams though, eh?|
There is nothing intrinsically bad about this shirt, of course. My husband wears them all the time and looks like the cool middle-aged surfer he is. It's just so not-me, the bright print and big collar and etc. But if I were coming home to a million dollars, I'd pop it right on with a neat pencil skirt, boots and a blazer!
Over to you: what would you not wear for a million, billion bucks? No wrong answers of course, we all have our dreams.
