This is my first participation in The Zelie Group‘s weekly “Just Enough Info” (JEI) blog hop and link up. JEI is posted once a week, and provides readers with a little more insight into who we are as the women behind the screen. Usually, there is one theme previously identified, followed by three writing prompts. I hope you will enjoy this weekly series!
If you had to wear clothes from a different time period, what would it be?
I think it’s safe to say I was born in the wrong era.
Growing up, I would scour the pages of our Encyclopedia Britannica, paying special attention to the high necklines, long skirts, buttoned boots of the Victorian Era. I envisioned myself as a member of the Royal Court at times, while simultaneously feeling drawn to the images of the Suffragettes.
Five years ago, my answer to this question would have been the Victorian Era. Since having children, I have had a change of heart.
Have you seen the Netflix Original Series, The Crown? If not, I highly recommend it. I began binge-watching it on Election night; as the results rolled in, I voraciously watched episode after episode of The Crown. The binging continued the next night… One of those nights, I gasped, turned to my husband and exclaimed, “that is what I need to wear!”
Not the crown, mind you, but the dress that has a modest neckline, skirt that hits mid-calf (so I can bend over to scoop children up without flashing people behind me), and sturdy heeled shoes.
Classy, modest, and fit for a queen – literally. The only thing missing is my must-have in a wardrobe – it must be easy and discreet to nurse. That said, given today’s fashion savviness, that should be easy to rectify!
What are you embarrassed that you wore, but used to think was cool?
I was once banned from wearing turtleneck tank tops, even though I still think I looked good in them…
But, my initial answer to this question, however, was platform tennis shoes. I. loved. those. clodhoppers! I felt the way I imagine the foot model below feels – light and airy!
What is your favorite article of clothing in your closet right now?
I am a nursing mama, who values tank tops and modesty. So, what is my solution?
You guessed it!
My collection of
only 22 scarves has served me well throughout the years. On days when the weather is in the 40’s, a scarf keeps me nice and warm; the next day, when the weather is in the 70’s, I’m able to maintain some sense of modesty (true story from this past weekend). Furthermore, with the right scarf, I don’t need to worry about a nursing cover – the scarf takes care of that for me!
I’d love to hear from you – either in your own blog post, or in the comments section below! What would your answers be to the questions of:
- If you had to wear clothes from a different time period, what would it be?
- What are you embarrassed that you wore, that you used to think was cool?
- What is your favorite article of clothing in your closet right now?
- Did you ever wear platform tennis shoes?
