My husband loves t-shirts commemorating events. And he wears one everyday – alone in summer and under a long-sleeved shirt in the colder months. I seldom buy commemorative t-shirts, because the don’t do my middle aged body in favors. I’m okay with that. However, after seeing Postmodern Jukebox twice within a matter of a few months (yes, they are that good), the merch table had this t-shirt available:
I thought the graphic was particularly awesome, and I really liked the 3/4 sleeves. I caved and bought it.
Ever since then (June), I’ve been struggling to find a way to wear it.
Today, the high was 82, but tonight will drop to 57 degrees. A t-shirt with 3/4 sleeves is a good choice for this temperature range. We had some errands to do, so decided I would wear the PMJ t-shirt. I threw it on with the pair of white jeggings and a pair of suede navy boots.
Then because, I have been reading the fashion blogs, and I felt somewhat brave, I asked my husband to stop so that we could take some photos. When I saw the photos, and realized how crappy this outfit is, my first reaction was to delete them and wait for another day. A day when I gave more attention to what I would wear.
But upon further thought, I decided a post about what not to wear had value, and might get me past feeling nervous regarding blogging about fashion – a topic about which I was oblivious for most of my life. Nowhere to go but up, right? Besides, Valentino, our 7 pound mutt is adorable. Who am I to deny Valentino an audience?
Despite the outfit fail, there are aspects of it I do like – the suede navy boots with the white jeggings.
Valentino & I need to get our act together!
