One Year Ago Today: Sunday Wardrobe Trauma

Facing Tomorrow Without Trauma

Tomorrow is Sunday. No doubt when we leave we will all be dressed, but chances are good that someone will have had some wardrobe trauma in the process. Generally, one of us ladies is the one with the problem and one of the others is the one with the solution. Look out if two of us can't decide what to wear!

I recall a time a few years ago when my own Sunday morning wardrobe trauma was pretty much weekly. My problem: I didn't actually own a dress, but every Sunday morning I tried to select one from my closet to wear. My solution: I bought a khaki skirt that I could wear to church with my T-shirts. That skirt was one of the few items I ever paid full price for (I think it was $30 or so), but I wore it several years before selling it on consignment this past summer. In warm weather, I wore it with tanks and sandals. Come winter, it was turtlenecks and boots.

So, figure out your own formula. What do you like to wear to church? I guarantee you won't find it in your closet on Sunday morning if you don't actually have it.

One year later, I still need to get better about trying on my outfits ahead of time. The ladies have almost no Sunday wardrobe trauma; but it occasionally surfaces Saturday night. They plan ahead.

That's a good post - I actually spend a lot of Sunday mornings thinking "OH no! I have nothing to wear to church!". Actually figuring out what I need ahead of time and then buying them would make a lot of sense!

Hi Anne! Welcome to the blog! :D

Thanks Beck! It's so important, but it's SO easy to put off thinking about it. In my ideal schedule, I would think about it Friday afternoon or I would even try on outfits a month or a season at a time.

Right now, I wear the black wool pencil skirt and a pair of light brown plaid wool pants pretty much alternating. I have a couple of other things, but if they disappeared tomorrow I would still be able to get dressed.

Thanks for the comment!
