Fashion? What's fashion?

Remember how I used to post clothes and bags and shoes and bags I liked? Ha!  Gone are those days.  I can't remember the last time I've been to a clothing store for myself and not the kids. But to be fair, I do remember the last clothing item I ordered myself online.  $12 Bermuda shorts on sale at j.crew last summer.

And lets face it, these days me dressing up (aside from business casual at work) is putting on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.  Yes, if I put on a pair of jeans instead of yoga pants, I'm considering myself dressed for the day. Hello, Rachel, this is motherhood.

Maybe the reason why I don't dress up (other than just not feeling it...how do I get back in the groove of wanting to dress us?) is because I sit next to GMac for meals and he cannot make it through a meal without grabbing my arm and rubbing food on me in the process.

All that to say, this post is not a Fashion Friday post. It's a regular post.

I'm very slightly expanding my reading horizons.  I just finished It Ends With Us, a novel about domestic violence.  I did not realize that was the theme until halfway through when I read the authors note in the back (despite her note saying "don't read this, it has spoilers").  Now I'm working on my first young adult book, Finding Audrey (only because I love Sophie Kinsella).

If you take nothing else from this post, and you won't because there's nothing here, take this article.  Now I want to go to England and read English chick-lit.

I love March Madness. I haven't watched a single regular season game this year and I blame that on the move, Ohio State being very bad, and the Indians in the World Series (it takes a while to care about other sports after that). I'm currently beating C in our intra-family (his words) bracket challenge.  There is nothing on the line but I'm beginning to wish I bet a third child. Except I never win.

Happy weekend, Friends!

What gets your attention most from today's economic news headlines? As with any other time, your style, your image, and your sense of spending should be an ongoing journey. The complexities of fashion, style, beauty, health and wellness change daily, and with the high cost of living the choice of dressing well by spending less is a huge gamble. star
