Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

is it me? or them?

I went to the movies with husband last week and while waiting for the movie to start we people watched. I noticed that the majority of the people were girls ages 16-18 and they all looked the same.

Husband and I laughed and thought about when we were in high school did we all look like that? These girls were all wearing, ugg boots, skinny jeans, a North Face fleece, a scarf and had a Vera Bradley bag in their lap, iphones out.

I suddenly realized that I too was wearing something eerily similar, give or take the name brands. I thought to myself are they trying to look like me or am I trying to look like them? Are they trying to look 25 or am I trying to look 16?

Are the age lines that blurred? I remember when I was younger and felt that you could always tell when you were in the presence of an older woman, not your mom older, but older. When you were in college you started dressing like woman and not a teenager, then when you graduated you dressed for success and then were limited to mom jeans once you popped one out.

I remember being excited about these passages in woman hood as I saw it but since then there has been a shift. I don't know when the shift happened but I am left confused. Is it because I am in my mid 20's and am at a cross roads? I think it is.

I think it also has something to do with the fact that I am in college but I am not really college age anymore.

When I left the theater that night I told husband that it was time that I gave my closet a face lift fit for a girl that is approaching her late 20's and wants to do so with class, style and better sense of her self than she came in to her 20's with.

First stop, purging the old, to make way for the new.

  1. I might wear that stuff yet myself though I'm trying to incorporate some more 'grown up' pieces.
