I was the subject of an intervention…

14 Nov

So…this past weekend I went on a girls “craft” weekend.  This was our second annual crafty get away.  The reason I put “craft” in quotes is because the craft part of the weekend is starting to move down the list of weekend activities…to be replaced by frosty drinks.  Anyway, back to the intervention.

As I said in the first installment of What I (Should) Wear, I am a stay at home mom that might need just a little bit of help getting back on the fashion bandwagon and off this mom uniform train.  So Jill and I  stopped at the MiUS inventory room to pick up Millie for our trip.  Next thing I know, Jill and Millie are almost physically taking my clothes off (ok that might be a slight exaggeration) and putting me in (are you ready???) SKINNY JEANS!  I believe my reaction was first “WTF?” and second “where are the cameras?  This has to be an intervention.”  Seriously…I physically looked behind a sheet that hangs as a backdrop in the inventory room to see if candid camera was there and waiting.  They weren’t.   Because I was afraid of a physical altercation, I put on the skinny jeans and the striped cardi that was another suggested item.  I then walked over to the full length mirror and asked if it was a trick mirror because low and behold…I looked slimmer!  I actually really liked the look.  I had to tone down my excitement and act angry at the attack of the fashion police, but I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome.  I had to very quietly say “you were right” to them both because Millie gets really happy and excited and Jill likes to gloat…

I own the blue cord necklace and love it because it can be casual or dressy, and the length of the necklace can be adjusted.  I also own the black studded clutch and if i was going anywhere but Hocking Hills I would of used it!  To be honest…I now own the whole outfit!

So I left Cleveland in my trusted loose fitting jeans, pink t-shirt, hoodie and tennis shoes.  I landed in Hocking Hills wearing skinny jeans, a cardi, my pink t-shirt (I was good for something) and boots.  Oh yea…the boots Jill gave me as we left her house.  She feels I need an intervention so bad she made me take off my tennis shoes and put on the boots off her feet (ok, not really – they were in her closet).

skinny jeans  $79.95 (i know…again a little over my $50 mark but well worth it!)

striped cardi $29.99

pewter leather braid ring $34.99

blue cord necklace $32.99

black studded clutch $75.99 (i told you…i am a bag snob)
