What Not To Wear

, , 24 comments
It's Thursday again, which means I am once again using pictures from my past as blodding fodder for today.



Here is a picture of my hubby and I in the spring of 1997 at an All Night Bowling event for my youth group. Please take note of the shirt I am wearing.

Two and a half years later here we are in October of 1999 at a College Football game. Notice I still have the same shirt. No shame in that... someone can have the same shirt 3 years later, right?



Last night my sister in law, Karen was in town and she went shopping with me to help me find some things to update my wardrobe. I had a blast trying on new things and felt like I was on reality TV as I would come out of the dressing room and model outfits for her. The night was a success as I came home with quite a few items. She suggested we go to my closet and find what clothes I already had that I could use with some of the new things. I felt like I was on the show What Not to Wear as I pulled multiple items out of my closet and said, "I've had that since High School..." Take a look at the shirt I put in the donation pile.



Hmmm, 11 years later , I think it is time to say goodbye to this one, don't you? (yes, it was still in the pile of cloths I wore)

As I was scanning these pictures in, I noticed that Scott is wearing the same hat in both pictures. Seriously, what are the odds? We both are wearing the same clothes 2.5 years a part and happen to take pictures at both events? This made me laugh. We are quite the fashion trend setters aren't we?  (no, he does not still have the hat).

  4. It's cool, I have clothes like that! Somehow, we get thrown to the back burner as we have to buy the little ones new clothes all the time.

  5. Sorry - you must have got that bad habit from me. I also can find pictures of some well worn clothes that date back TOO MANY years :-) It takes some blasts from the past to let them go. Glad you had a good time shopping - it is much more fun with someone else to encourage you.

  11. That is hilarious! Really what are the odds? More likely in my house for hubby to have the same shirt or hat. I always change my mind on what I like and throw almost everything in the yard sale pile, but not hubby. Where it til it's nasty is his motto. :)

  12. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    I too have clothes that are from years ago, some that I will wear and then something will trigger a memory and all of a sudden think wow I was wearing this same "whatever" 5 years ago...

  13. Hahahaha! I hate to admit it, but I have a series of photos just like that! The saddest part of all is that I have been out of high school for almost 25 years :(

  16. Uh, isn't that the shirt I wore to paint your son's bedroom?

  17. No dear sister in law, Jessie, the shirt you wore when painting my son's room was a red stripped shirt. The one featured in this post was still to prominent a part of my wardrobe to be lent out for painting!
    Don't you all think she did a super job painting my son's room? I smile each time I look at the seagulls, clouds, and whale you painted. You are a gifted artist and a super dedicated aunt!

  22. See, I need help too, 'cause I see nothing wrong with that. My kids make fun of my when I wear my high school french club t-shirt around the house, though. Maybe I'm not the best authority...

    Cute pics!

  23. I think if I ever drew a picture of you, it would be in that shirt. I say "why give up a good thing?" Don't you think it is kinda good that you can wear the same size after 3 babies! You go girl!
