By the time 7pm rolls around...bra OFF! Sometimes, in fact, I prefer it to be earlier. And it is then thrown around the house in the most likely and unlikely of places. I think my favorite example of this is when we had a friend over one afternoon and after he left I noticed that my pink bra was on the table next to where he sat. Goodness gracious. But does that stop my incessant bra-off attitude? Nope.
They are just SO uncomfortable!
But I am afraid, oh so deeply afraid, that Summertime will stop my comfortable behavior once and for all.
My predicament is early in the morning and then after work when I have to take the dog out. Since we live in an apartment, this is not an easy task. Especially since we have to walk him to the park where another human being will inevitably be seen. My solution to this problem has been easily solved for the last rainy and cold 9 months.
The long brown parka.
It's puffy, it's long, it's button up, and it covers any and all areas that need covered. Even a hood can avert all eyes from me with a simple nod of feathery discreetness. I can get away with wearing pink polka-dot pajama pants and a micky mouse t-shirt easily, not to mention my bra-less situation without a hitch. And taking my daughter to the bus stop? As normal an outfit as can be.
But then this morning, when the sun was shining and I could feel the warmth on my face while sleeveless passerby's nodded at my existence, I thought to myself..."I think I must look ridiculous."
And so what is the answer my friends? Where do I go from here? Must I GET DRESSED before I go outside? No, I say! There must be some other way to remain bra-less in the wee hours of the bus stop at 8am.
Here's what I have come up with so far.
Surface-covering yet fashionable, loose yet slimming....the black mumu in it's most exotic form.
The possibility of this being a time-consuming outfit is high, but I think the softy silky fabric and pretty pattern make up for it.
Indiscreet? Perhaps. But notice the feather placement? It averts the eyes from any body parts immediately.
Any other suggestions?
Spring is finally upon us and so this matter is of great urgency.
Sun sun stay away, come again another day.
