Everyone knows that when you hear that dreaded "You're not going to wear that are you?" You immediately look in the mirror and blink and say "Well no, I guess not" and then you stand and wonder "Why the hell not?"
You know you've said it...We all have either said it to our husband, best friend, or mother even....and God knows if you had a mother like mine and tried to dress like I did when I was 15 you heard it on more than one occasion.
But I had my first "You're not going to wear that moment", FROM MY HUSBAND!
I had on a pair of black leggings, they are tight, and I get I still have weight to lose despite the 30 lbs I lost in 2011, but it's not like I stuffed myself into them, I have tiny legs and not an overly huge butt. And I put on a nice red sweater, and was going to put on my Uggs. The sweater didn't completely cover my butt, but it went half way down and looked ok, at least to me. I turned and ran into a wall....
"You aren't going to wear those pants are you?" Husband says
"Umm, (looking in the mirror) no? No I guess not" I said
"Wait, why? Do they look bad?" I asked
"Uh, umm No, they don't look bad, but they just umm show off a lot don't you think?" he said
Turning this way and that looking in the mirror, thinking in my head, yeah I guess they do but not so much more than my pair of black skinny jeans I was going to wear instead.
I hung my head and said, I guess I will go change. I mean I don't want to look like an idiot or anything.
Seeing that I was decidedly unimpressed with the fact that I had to change, once I reappeared in the kitchen to finish preparations for Christmas dinner the husband tried to save himself by whispering "I mean I think they make you look hot, but you don't want to show that to everyone do you?"
"Well does it make me look hot or slutty and trashy?" I asked
"nothing like that" he replied
I will be 40 this year, of course I want to look hot, I don't want to be 18 again but dang I want to at least look good and impress!
So I did put on my jeans for the day but was still shocked that I actually got the "You're not going to wear that" especially if it made me look "hot"!
