Today's blog post may be a bit confusing. The last few days I've been wearing pretty dresses and here I am about to show you what is in my laundry basket from last week and there are no pretty dresses. Let me explain.
I have decided that 2017 is going to be my #YOLO year. No more waiting for the right occasion to wear my favorite things. I'm going to wear them now.
Previously, I didn't wear many dresses. Why? Kids. Between breastfeeding and fear of wardrobe malfunctions, I usually wore whatever was easy. Definitely pants and a shirt that was breastfeeding friendly. Now I confess, that was actually a mistake. I could have made "pretty" breastfeeding friendly dresses. I COULD have worn shorts under my dresses to battle off the toddler created wardrobe malfunctions, but I didn't. But I can't go back in time. I can go forward and be awesome now though, so let's do this.
Let me point out, this basket is technically from LAST year. SO I hadn't achieved yolo yet. But there's still some really good stuff in here. Let's take a look. :)
This is my actual basket. Once a week my daughter sorts out the laundry according to who it belongs to and we each get a basket. Notice, she does not fold. That's ok, its not her job. I have already removed all RTW underwear and socks. No sense in sharing those.
Speaking of underwear, let's start there. In my basket I had:
1 pair of SUAT Scrundies. Scrundies are my favorite, but a lot of binge eating means I don't fit into my full stash of Scrundies in size small. I have several more pairs than these, but they must already be in the dirty laundry for next week.
Pajamas are next.
I don't usually "intentionally" make pajamas. Pajamas are either muslins that are good enough to wear, just not in public, or clothes that some how became too inappropriate for wearing out of the house.
1 Jocole shoreline tank made into a sleep bra
1 pair of Jocole Yoga Pants
1 pair of 5 out of 4 Pajama pants (with pockets!)
1 RTW Camisole. I buy these because they're cheap, but I could easily make them from the Jocole Shoreline Tank
1 Greenstyle Centerfield Raglan. This tee would still be in my rotation if not for having white latex pant on it. (top right)
1 VERY mashed up and hacked Patterns for Pirates Layer Me Up (cross over) with Boundless skirt.
1 Gracious Threads Maple Skirt
Also in the pants pile (right to left),
1 pair of EYMM Get Moving Leggings
1 pair of Winter Wear Designs Aviators
1 pair of Love Notions Sabrina Slims (a replacement for the pair I ripped)
1 EYMM Piko Top. This style of top looks awful on me. But I love the color so much I wear it anyway.
1 Patterns for Pirates Henley (right)
Layers are actually my 3 favorite pieces from all of this.
