There's some stuff I do like. But most of it would not be considered appropriate to wear. I mean, I just love this:
...but it would draw more attention than I'm really comfortable with.
And I totally wish I were Indian so I could get away with wearing this:
Or even these:
... but sadly I don't look even a little bit Indian, so I think I would probably offend someone if I tried.
So, as far as things currently considered acceptable to wear ....
I love jeans. Used to hate them, until I discovered words like "boot cut" and "low rise" would win me a pair that was actually comfortable. Now I could live in them.
I like jean skirts like this:
I have one of these, and another one in knee length. (I don't like any length but ankle and knee.) Embroidered details and patches are nice.
I love hippie and gypsy skirts.
I don't wear them too often because my kids use them as handles and I hate being dragged around by my clothes. But I love them. I had a paisley hippie skirt that I wore almost every Sunday for EIGHT YEARS. It literally wore right out. So now it's a mei tai. What? I couldn't part with it. I'll have to post a picture later.
Given the choice, I wear short sleeves. Long sleeves make me claustrophobic. I just push them up. I had a thing for awhile for fuzzy sweaters, but those got too claustrophobic too, especially with kids hanging on me.
I think dip-dyeing is one of the prettiest things ever. I have a dip-dyed coral shirt with a butterfly applique that I love ... but it's a little tight so I never wear it. Sigh. I dreamed and dreamed when I was in college of a yellow dip-dyed formal gown ... but when it came down to it I wore something completely different because apparently they don't have things like that in the stores. Particularly not in the under $50 price range.
Oh, and I'm a Spring. For the most part I love my colors. Except I don't much care for pink, which if you look at the swatches I have to choose from is pretty unfortunate.
I just can't imagine a world in which I would wear fuchsia on purpose. I do like all those blues and greens though. Also red. I can wear true red, and look good in it.
I like flannel shirts. They are so soft. Really, I like everything that's soft (NOT velvet though, because I do not call that soft). I like to wear flannel shirts unbuttoned over a tank top. That's actually what I'm wearing right now.
I like pashminas. I have three really pretty ones ... but I never wear them except maybe for really formal events. But they are wonderful. If they are long enough, they make excellent baby slings. They also can be nursing covers, mantillas, or shrugs. Pretty much whatever you want. And they are pretty.
I am not much of an accessorizer. I have jewelry, but I never wear anything but my watch and rings. Which is a shame ... I used to wear this lovely Celtic pendant almost daily, but then Marko broke it, sniff. I think I fixed it, but I hardly want to get it broken again. Perhaps for some special occasion, someday. I also have some bracelets and things. Which I never wear. It just seems silly to wear it around the house, but then if I ever go anywhere fancy, I'm totally distracted by my jewelry because I'm not used to it.
Oh, I don't have pierced ears. I don't want them either. I'm not really comfortable with holes in my body. I do kind of like tattoos (depending, of course), but they're just kind of permanent and painful and I'd be scared to get one.
I am picky about shoes. I don't like heels of any description; I teeter. I have a pair for weddings which are pretty enough, but they are not at all comfortable. And they're only an inch and a half!
I like ballet flats, sandals, minimalist sneakers (think Pumas) and boots. Boots like these boots:
Aren't they a dream?
So that should clear some things up. Now I can send people to this post when they ask me "what do you like?" This is the stuff I like.
