Returning from my morning walk, I stumbled upon my daughters dressed like THIS!!! WHAT IS THIS????? One was sweeping the floor, the other was washing off the counter. They acted as if everything was just hunky-dory. Perhaps they were both wearing jeans and then changed their minds and forgot to remove the skirts. Or maybe they were so excited about their latest sewing accomplishment that they decided to wear the new skirts over jeans. Maybe they are wearing 2 bottoms in case either the skirt or jeans get dirty.
This morning's dialogue:
Mom: "Do you realize you are wearing jeans under your skirt?"
18-yr old: "Yeah, isn't it cool?" face beaming with excitement.
Mom: "No, it's not cool, it's ugly", trying to keep a straight face.
18-yr old: "But Mom, everybody at college is wearing skirts with pants underneath like this."
Mom wanted to say, "Yeah, everyone but you," but refrained.
Now she says she and her sister are going to wear these outfits to the co-op tomorrow. I need to don sunglasses, hat, and somehow disguise my very tall body.
Is this really the new fashion statement? Puh-lease!!!
