|7 clothing items + 2 pairs of shoes|
Here's a picture of my 7 clothing items for this week of "The Summer of 7". I picked 2 pairs of jeans, 1 pair of stretch pants, 3 shirts, and 1 hoodie. Also not shown here are a black and a white tank top that I'll wear under my shirts. I wear a tank top under my shirt every day so I'm viewing them as undergarments. Plus, my shirts are a bit thin and I'm not about wearing see-through shirts.
I really thought, "This won't be too difficult. I don't have that many clothes anyways". But last night, after I already chose my 7, I was folding laundry. And I almost started hyperventilating. I folded my most comfy pajama pants and realized that I didn't really have anything to wear to bed. See, I usually I wear like sweats and a sweatshirt or a long sleeve t-shirt to bed. I'm all about being warm. So my options are my stretch pants and a tank top. Because I don't want to wear my hoodie to bed in case I need it for the day time. I mean I guess I could but.... it might feel grody and beddish. I guess that's really the point of all this.
Also, I woke up this morning and saw that it was raining, and it's expected to rain for the next few days... and I didn't choose a coat. I mean, you would think after reading "7" I would have chosen an actual coat. And I quote,
"Day 2: Make a coat one of your seven things."- Jen Hatmaker
But it's June here. She did her clothes in February. I thought I'd be o.k. I was wrong. Oh well. It's good for me.
I know Jen didn't do belts, but I'm definitely doing a belt. Because in the words of Sir Mix-A-Lot, "little in the middle but she's got much back!" If I don't use a belt I'll look like a carpenter every time I bend over. It's just a plain brown belt though. Nothing cute.
And I'm doing one pair of tiny stud earrings. This is a big deal for me because ever since I chopped my hair off a few months back, larger dangly earrings have become a part of my everyday attire.
O.k. that's all for now.
