Did I Wear That Last Week?

I am a bit obsessive compulsive when it comes to what I wear when I go outside of the home. Let me be clear, when I'm just lazing around the house it's comfy pants and tee shirts! But when I go out, not just to work, but to my twice monthly visits with my nephews, or my every other month PTA meeting, I obsess over what I wore last time, and what I will wear this time.

I hate the idea of wearing the same things to meetings. Or wearing the same color two days in a row.

I've given serious thought to making a journal of what I wear day to day. The only thing that stops me is the knowledge that when we've died and our kids sort through our things, not only will they find years of journals with blacked out bits, but also year long lists of books I've read and notebooks filled with dog quotes, pictures, and ideas that I find interesting. If I added a record of my outfits....

It's two steps into crazy town. I may live on the outskirts, but I'm not quite ready to give up and live in the hub of the city.

Although. I do have the perfect graph paper for an outfit journal....


  1. Oh, just go for it. Crazy Town is lovely this time of year. :)

  2. I am the same. When I worked full time I needed to plan my wardrobe for the whole week, that way I would be sure to not wear a similar outfit. Now I have to make sure I do not wear the same outfits on preschool days or church days. Did I wear that last Wednesday? Is a much harder question to answer!
