    I honestly have no idea how to dress my aging, menopausal figure...dang, and I used to look pretty hot!
    That's why my daily outfit is yoga pants. If I were in the Southwest, I'd probably switch to simple cotton dresses. One year there was a sale at Bass and I bought 3 of the exact same dress: like a polo shirt with a collar and short sleeves, only a dress. It was a great comfortable, casual look. Wore a different color every day.

    As you can see, I tend to go for "uniforms." I don't like making decisions about what I'm going to wear every day. No wonder I wanted to be a nun when I was young--the kind with the habits.

    I was just at Duluth Trading Company here and they had a number of cotton dresses (looked like very long shirts and a coupld of short sleeved stretchy dresses. I also liked their pants and skorts.

    Being out here in a hippy desert town my uniform IS denim cut-offs. I just had no idea that this particular pair (originally Ralph Lauren jeans that I got at the thrift store for a couple of bucks and cut off myself) looked so lousy. The thrift store doesn't have three way mirrors so I never really looked at myself from behind! I just wish some of the new fat around my waist and hips would migrate downward and fill out the seat of my pants.

    I might break down this week and get some new shorts on sale at Kohl's or something. I have some coupons to use. My body has really changed this year being away from the Wholefoods job and drinking way more booze than I used to. I've packed on a few extra pounds and it doesn't look that bad, it's more like I am just not used to it. I think it is going to be my new normal, unfortunately, unless I get the same kind of job that had me running around all day long like a crazy person.
