Don't Wake Me UpSunday, September 09, 2012
I dragged my brother out of bed this morning merely for the purpose of taking photos for me. When he woke up sleepy-eyed and grumbling, he looked at my outfit and said, "Is that all you're wearing? A white blouse and jeans?" I replied hesitantly and told him that simplicity is key, while simultaneously questioning all my life choices. No matter how much jewelry I want to wear at once or how much I look like a flamboyant peacock from the Mesozoic era, you simply cannot go wrong with a white blouse. And maybe that's why I have so many of them. I'm just following after the footsteps of my mom, of course. Every time I explore her closet, I seem to find more white blouses that look just the same as the previous 8 I've found before. And yet every time she buys one, she still tells me she's searching for the perfect one. Is there a perfect one?
