Hey there everyone it’s good to be back for this month’s edition of ‘Not Just A Mom’ hosted by Adrienne, Dara, Jen, Joanne and Sarah. Today’s topic is ‘Pet Peeves’. If you remember back in April I shared with you guys a whole bunch of everyday pet peeves. And I was surprised that I came up with so many! But I have to admit that it kind of felt good to get them all off my chest. Anyway as I have already covered quite a few of my everyday pet peeves I thought that for today I would talk about some of my fashion pet peeves. But before I go ahead I just wanted to say that fashion is such a personal thing and we all have our own unique styles and preferences. What works for one person might not work for another.
So I’m just keeping it light and fun and I’m most definitely not here to judge anyone’s style choices. Today I am just chatting about some things that don’t work for me when it comes to fashion. So without taking things too seriously let’s have a look at some of my fashion pet peeves!
Fashion Pet Peeves
Socks And Sandals
Ok, so this would have to be number one on my list of fashion pet peeves. Socks and sandals are just not my thing. But my husband is a fan, and it wasn’t too long ago that he tried this fashion combo when we were getting ready to go out one night. He thought I wouldn’t notice!
Oversized Designer logos
Yeah, I’m not into big flashy designer logos on everything. I think the fashion houses are doing ok and don’t need me to boost their sales by being a walking advertisement for them.
Jumpers With Cut Out Shoulders
I’ve seen ladies wearing jumpers with cut-out shoulders and they look amazing. So it’s not that I don’t necessarily like the look. No, it’s not about that at all. For me, it’s just that I would feel so incredibly cold wearing a jumper that leaves my shoulders exposed! When I wear a jumper I want every single bit of my body to be covered up and warm.
Wearing Leggings As Pants
I’m not sure that they are meant to be worn as stand-alone bottoms. Especially when the leggings are made of very thin light-coloured material and you can see clearly right through them.
It’s not that I’m jealous because I don’t have a whole lot going on up there. It’s just that I think a more subtle approach looks classier.
Wearing Clothes That Are Too Small And Tight
We need to let our bodies breathe, it deserves some space!
Just thinking about itchy fabrics makes me want to scratch! You know what I’m talking about right? I have made the huge mistake of buying those woolly jumpers that might be super warm but they make me want to scratch the skin off my neck.
Deceiving Mannequin Display
You know when you are out clothes shopping and you get all excited because you spot a really cute perfectly fitted dress on a mannequin? And you think “Yes, that’s it! That’s the one I want!” But then when you look closely you realise that the reason why it looks so great is because it’s been pinned and tucked at the back. And in fact, the dress is just a shapeless sack.
Too Many Prints At Once
I love a good pattern but combining multiple patterns in one outfit can look a bit overwhelming.
There’s nothing worse and more uncomfortable than wearing a cute top that gapes wide open when you bend over. This happens to me often and it’s probably because I have zero cleavage to hold my top in place. Anyway, my dilemma with gaping tops is all over now that I have discovered Hollywood Fashion Tape. It’s the best solution ever!
I guess that just about wraps up most of my fashion pet peeves. It’s been fun exploring them and I’ll probably think of a few more that I forgot later on. I’d be really interested to find out some of your fashion pet peeves. Thank you so much for joining me today and I hope that you have the best Monday!
