My Rant!



























There are just some things that are NOT done.  EVER!  Black socks and white tennis shoes….don’t let it happen!  Leaving the house with curlers in your hair….no excuse.  Runs in your hose or tights….NOT a good look, no matter what weird celebrity does it.  Visible panty line…….do we even need to discuss this?  Unshaven armpits in a tank top……obviously I’ve gone to meddling now!  And we NEVER EVER under any circumstances other than blatant emergencies wear our pajamas to the grocery store!

They are PAJAMAS, NOT casual wear.  You can tuck them into UGGS and throw on a sweater; but when they’re fuzzy and have reindeer or hearts all over them, then they are correctly classified as Pa-Ja-Mas.  Pajamas are for sleeping or cuddling on the couch.  They are under no condition to be worn in public.  I know, I know.  I’m Prudie McPrude.  I’m 44 going on 84.  Say what you will.  Maybe I AM a bit Victorian in my thinking.  But a lady (or teen girl) puts her best foot forward and if time, inclement weather or any other such inconvenience is an issue; then one either foregoes the errand or at the very least put on a pair of jeans and clean shirt, pull the hair back in a pony tail and slap on some lip gloss and a pair of hoop earrings.  That’s a pretty quick look AND it shows a proper amount of dignity and self respect.

(Deep sigh with shaking head)  KIDS these days!

On a separate note….I LOVED this outfit!  These are the ingredients:

BLACK SWEATER:  purchased at Banana Moon in Hendersonville, NC

PANTS:  J Crew

BOOTS:  ?  Had for years

BANGS:  Self cut and totally feelin’ them!

SPOTS ON CAMERA:  Go figure!


  1. Preach it, sistah!! I absolutely agree.

  2. love the boots :) xxx <3

  3. Tell it like it is girl. No way should anyone be caught outside no less at the grocery store wearing pajamas. I see it so much now and it is simply insane.

    Your outfit is cool. The tie around the waist and the boots sets the tone for your look.

  4. i totally agree with your rant!!

    your outfit is fabulous and i LOVE your nail color!

  5. I enjoyed your rant, and I agree about the pajamas. Its not that hard to put on a pair of jeans, and look a little more decent haha

  6. :) It feels so good to rant sometimes!
    You look lovely! That sweater is gorgeous!

  7. When I was a teenager, women went to the grocery store all the time in curlers in West Texas! i remember it so clearly and just could never imagine that happening now! you are so right on the pajama thing...but in your outfit, you look so great , you do not look like you are ranting at anything!!

  8. Hear, hear...I couldn´t agree more with you.Rant as much as you can jejeje

  9. hey sweet thanks so much for coming by to my blog :) love the comment! it makes me happy :D please come by again anytime!

    ps. i love your blog and im now a follower! :) please follow me back? :) XXXX ♥

  10. Haha, your posts always make me laugh. ;) But the style is great! I really love the scarf and bracelet in the post below. :)

  11. Yup, they show up to class in their jammies and slippers.

  12. I totally agree. I do not nor will I ever be able to justify wearing pjs in public. Every time I see someone in pjs on the street I want to ask them if they think this is their living room. To be frank, it's disgusting. Other disgusting sartorial escapades: men's undershirts worn as t-shirts (esp. if they are at his knees!), shorts in winter, flip-flops anywhere but the beach/pool, bra purposefully visible through top.
    I admit that as a teen I ran the gamut of fashion sins and I'm glad I did it then rather than now. Teens can be excused for looking like idiots. Grown-ups should know better. : }

  13. Thank you guys for putting up with my rant! LOL Isn't it crazy how something so silly can really get your dander up? I see new faces here, so I'm off to visit your blogs! Have a FAN-TAB-U-LOUS weekend! ~Serene

  14. I totally agree on the no PJs in public. Seriously, they are for at home only! I feel funny wearing yoga pants anywhere but the gym too.

    You look fab, btw. :)

  15. i love a good rant to get me thru the day. and your waist looks amazing in the ensemble.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! ~Serene
