Do any of my cloths fit??

9 Nov

Sometimes going into the closet is no F-U-N!  Some days, nothing fits.  Other days, who cares what I put on?  I am totally against wearing sweatpants, and have had the same pair since  1989. Hey, its not like you can grow out of them!  They just expand right along with me!  But man..some days I am so tempted to grab them and put them on.  Of course we cannot forget Mark Twain’s famous quote “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society“.  So dress we must!   We have all seen the fashionista’s that look great and are accessorized to the hilt.  I envy those people.  All that mixing of colors and patterns that actually match.  And then to really rub it in, they are accessorized in a way that makes them really look polished.  I am still trying to master the art of figuring out the difference between so called warm tones and cool tones.  What the heck?  No, my expertise lies in the kitchen and my pantry.  I can throw together a nutritious meal from scratch in no time.   My palate directs me, guides me.  Ingredients, spices, and recipes inspire me.  I can toss together a beautiful sauce with perfect harmony.  Colors, smells, textures in my pots and pans all speak to me, and I can interpret them perfectly.  A little more of this, a dash of that.  And I do all of this in my gloriously mismatched outfits.  How is it, I wonder, that I can match my vision and taste to pull together delicious and beautiful food, but can’t properly match my necklace to my shirt, or my shirt to my skirt?  My kitchen is filled with nuances to match every savory taste, every discerning palate, every detailed color, but my closet it a sea of plain solid boring neutrals and jewel tones.  I should be able to apply my detailed kitchen skills to my wardrobe skills, but I can’t seem to quite round the bases on that one.  I guess I will just keep cooking. Pass the sweat pants!
