Secret Mommyhood Confession Saturday

I don’t know if my dear Kimberly at Make Mommy Go Something Something intended to start a Saturday meme or if she found it from somewhere else or stole it or what, but I like it.

So today, I’ve got something to confess.

I want to be a more fashionable person.

It all started with my friend E and a pair of skinny jeans. We went shopping together before school started back and she, being a good 7 years younger than me, said “you should really try these.” And I did. And there’s no turning back.

I’m in love with my skinny jeans. I want to buy a pair every time I step foot in Old Navy.  I can’t help it. It’s a compulsion. An obsession.  A NEED.

Skinny jeans and flats or moccasins might be my new favorite go-to combo the same way my brown flip flops and jersey skirts are in the summer time.  I. Am. In. Love.

I suddenly feel the urge to be more fashionable.  Stylish.  Hot.  I want to ROCK the fact that I’m not a twig by wearing clothing that I feel good in. Because I think feeling good in my clothes makes me LOOK good in my clothes.

This urge has hit me kind of suddenly.  After having Joshua, I’d sort of resigned myself to being slightly out-of-fashion for the rest of my life.  And then? Then Twitter happened. And so did my urge to buy cute things to wear.

I totally should’ve saved this post for Monday.  But I couldn’t help it. I had to write it today to show you the outfit I just put together.

I love it. I can’t wait to wear it. It’s awesome.

At least I think so.

And I super-love-want these:

Here’s the thing.

I don’t like to spend money on myself.  I have SERIOUS Buyer’s Remorse.  Serious.

I think “what else could we do with this money?”  And then I feel all guilty for spending money.

And then I get all sad and can’t enjoy the fabulous new outfit I should be excited to wear.

Gah. I hate vicious cycles.

Y’all are totally planning on linking up tomorrow for Super Sunday, RIGHT?  Right.  Good.  I’m holding you to it.

And, while we’re at it? Vote for me, please and thank you!
