I'm not big on clothes shopping. Never have been. Even when I had the ability to walk into pretty much any store and choose adorable things off the rack and not have to worry about whether they would fit or not.
So, these days, I usually end up picking up an item or 2 for myself when I'm shopping for clothes for my girls. Which means that most of my clothes come from Old Navy. And I love Old Navy with a serious passion. But, I've noticed an alarming trend in my closet that needs addressing.
Allow me to present a random assortment of my favorite shirts.
Umm, does anyone notice a pattern here? I mean, aside from the fact that I need to put "color safe detergent" on my shopping list.
Yes, believe it or not, all 4 of these shirts are indeed the color black. And I'm sad to say that there are at least 4 others in differing styles that I didn't even pull out of the closet. Clearly I have an issue here.
I guess I gravitate towards black because it matches everything and it's supposed to be slimming. Sorry but there's no black shirt that can work aesthetic magic like some mad photoshop skills. Note to self: Invest in photoshop ASAP.
And so, with Spring temperatures finally arriving and warm summer days not far behind, at least I can look forward to pulling out my favorite summer dress to punch up my wardrobe.
If you need me, I'll be at Old Navy. Just look for the aisle with the black clothing.
