The boys are going on a field trip to the NC Symphony today so they had to be dressed appropriately per the memo that came home in their bookbags last week.
Does one wear black Crocs or brown Crocs with navy pants? I never can remember.
We don’t have a large arsenal of “appropriate” clothes in our closet – We go to a diverse school and our church is fairly informal about dress, so there’s never been a real need to spend a lot of money on fancy clothes that don’t get frequently worn.
Besides, I have the lock on the fancy clothes budget in this house.
As evidenced by the ink-stained t-shirt and hole-y yoga pants I’m currently wearing.
We were at JC Penney’s on Sunday afternoon picking up fall clothes (I always wait until the last minute to buy long pants to put on my growing-by-leaps-and-bounds boys) when I overheard Mr. CPQ and Baby A having a discussion about pants. Mr. C wanted him to add a pair of khaki pants to his fall wardrobe repertoire and Baby A would have none of it.
I thought it might be the stiffness of the fabric or the fit of that particular pair, but no, that was not the case.
Apparently, “Beige is boring, Mom.”
I think someone’s been reading my Vogue.
Have a nice day.
