I never feel so inadequate
As a human being
And as a female
As when I have to buy clothes
To get dressed up.
Why does the world expect this from me.
I am not made for fashion.
I am made for denim.
Or bike shorts.
Can’t you go in denimum and bike short? Maybe you could put a skirt over your bike shorts and still wear a denimum top. Start a new fashion. LOL!
Oh Priceless, as a kid I used to wear shorts under my uniform every day. I despise dressy/skirty things. 🙂 So I shall not wear them!!! 😉

I don’t blame you, I wouldn’t wear them either.
Oh the horror. What about swim suits? I’m thinking I’d rather go naked!
Oh geez. I forgot about those. Been MANY a year since I wore one of those!
I see nothing wrong with denim and bike shorts. Though if the occasion does not allow…I hate those kinds of occasions sometimes.
You are not inept. I think we have all been there in different ways. I still struggle at times with cooking or math. To each her own though we all shine in our own way, or as Bull Nye says, we can learn something from someone. I know I could not pull off a distance ride… but maybe a hike.
Besides I like denim and it is back in style. I say rock the denim with dress slacks then if shorts are no bueno for the event.
I like it Niaaeryn. I will shine forth in my jeans and bike shorts. And just to mess with everyone, I usually wear bike shorts under all my clothes because I come home and ride the bike or use the treadmill anyway! 🙂
Nicely done 🙂
Rock the denim and bike shorts!
Thank you Cindy! 🙂
Just add some giltter to your shorts or denim. Then you’re good to go. 😉
Ha! I like the idea! Thinking outside of the box here. I like it.
I’m here all night. 😉
Bike shorts and a bow tie. I say that’s all you need.
PERFECT! Though I will wear a shirt. Large. Baggy and comfortable. And the bow tie.
As long as you have the bow tie, I think it will be fine.
I’m on it Marissa.
you’ve got this.
think of it as a costume.
I got it now! Perfect suggestion!
I’m with Beth, find yourself something you are comfortable in. I don’t have any really dressy outfits, but I have quite a few smart casual as we call them. Something you can dress up or down. I do feel your pain though, I loathe clothes shopping…go on give it a try, if not don the D or BS. 😊
I think I will from here on out, go with “comfortable” because I’m learning that no one really cares. And if they do care, maybe they don’t know me well enough to expect me to have a clue what to do! 🙂
You are a fashionista!
Ha! Just for our location ! 🙂
I know how you feel. Only something important to family or to me can make me “dress up,” and I found a great solution to the problem. I wear funky leggings under a dress. The leggings feel like exercise pants and the dress takes care of the “dress up” part. Win-win. 🙂
I get the leggings (very akin to bike tights)….I just can’t do the ‘dress’ part.
The other, as big, issue…. I have NO sense of design, fashion, what looks good.
I have no fashion sense either, and am now at a point in life where I don’t worry about it. You should see the ridiculous things I pair together (thus giving my husband a big laugh; he thinks I’m taking lessons from our 6-year-old granddaughter). As for the “dress” part, I found one that is more like a long shirt than a dress. I’m not a dressy, girly-girl type so this works for me. And flat shoes (something like ballet slippers although if I can get away with fancy sneakers, I do it).
I see nothing ridiculous that makes your spouse laugh. 🙂 OH! A long shirt WITH bike tights might work! 🙂
I saw this headline and immediately thought “why is Colleen writing about the Cleveland Browns?” Anyway, I’m sure you were able to find something in which you look lovely! 🙂
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Poor Cleveland!
And thank you brother ❤
I totally relate, Colleen. I’m the embodiment of a “fashion don’t.”
Then we will always visit in our woefully inept fashion and be quite content and happy Jim. 🙂
Sounds like I’m hearing myself. And I like what Cindy wrote! ❤
I’m so not alone! ❤ And I like what Cindy wrote too. From now on when I get invites, I'm rsvp-ing with "rocking denim or bike shorts". 🙂
hahaha I love this, I agreeeeee!!!!!
😉 I seriously don’t want to stress about this ever again. 🙂 So I won’t.
I know it is not worth it! 🙂
If I threw a soiree for only the best, you wear your bike shorts and to hell with the rest! Oh and I will tooo!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!~ I love it Chris! 🙂 ❤
Just think how much better you look in bike shorts and denim than most folks, MBC. The world has a way to even things out. Besides, I have a feeling, you look better to-the-nines than you think, and they look better to-the-sixes than they think. Human nature! ❤
Hahahahahahahaha! I can always count on my wonderful friends MBM! Thank you!!!! ❤
I agree. I’ll happily be buried in my favorite jeans and a t-shirt.
Bike shorts, huge t-shirt, barefeet. 🙂
Ooh, barefeet…. Or flip flops for me. 🙂
Oh! Nothing between the toes!
And this conversation has taken a humorous turn!
Does that mean we laugh in the face of death? 🙂
Let’s laugh WITH death so we don’t antagonize it. 😉
Haha! Good call! 🙂
