Necessity is the mother of…new clothes?

White long-sleeved tee: clothes-swap ($0), Sweatshirt: GW ($4), Jean: Old Navy/GW ($5), Shoes: GW ($3)

TOTAL: $12

I know that this is not the cutest outfit I’ve ever donned. It’s hardly blog-worthy, in fact. But that’s the entire reason I’m blogging about it, actually.

I mean, after all, even though I really do wear the outfits you see on here for a period of time, the practicality of scrubbing toilets is pretty much nil.  And let’s face it, with two boys, ages 5 1/2 and 4 who think it’s great fun to “”co-potty” (I was horrified until my husband assured me that he and his brothers used to do the same thing and that it was “fun;” If you say so)  I scrub toilets a lot,

So, today we’re keeping it real with an outfit that I can wear without fear of breaking and ankle.

Fittingly enough, I wore this little number on an errand run that included a successful trip to Goodwill.

In fact, these clothes resulted from a relatively successful Goodwill excursion last weekend when I made an impromptu overnight trip to my parents’ house and didn’t have a change of clothes from my workout gear.

Now, I realize that normal people would by some things at Walmart to tide them over, and I did do that since the mere thought of Goodwill undies gives me the heebie-jeebies. But my first honest thought was: well, I didn’t bring any clothes, and I can’t wear stinky workout clothes all weekend. I guess I”d better see what I can scrounge up at good ol’ GW.

Yeah. Suffice it to say that I’m not “normal” people. And that’s just fine by me.
