We all like to dress nicely, or why else would we be hanging around a fashion board? However, I for one, know it isn't always practical to wear your best clothes everywhere! So, what do you wear when you're slumming it? Say you have a bunch of yard work to do. Maybe you have to give your dog a bath. You're painting your bedroom a new color. You're going fishing with your uncle Eddie and you know you'll be up to your elbows in trout-guts by dinnertime. You are taking care of an infant in the "barfing, pooping, and drooling" stage and cannot stay free of effluvia. What do you wear when you know there is no hope of staying tidy? I scrub out on the weekends all the time. I only dress up if we're going out with friends, or if I have errands to run that don't involve the hardware store or lumberyard. Mostly, I wear sweatshirts or old, faded, stained tee-shirts or old flannel shirts. On the bottom, it will be old jeans, or other old pants that have gotten too frayed and faded to wear in public anymore. Then, they end up aquiring character in the form of grass stains, ground in garage grease, paint-stains, bleach splats, glue patches, ect. In the summer I may swap these out for shorts of a similar character. I often wear a bandanna on my head, to keep dirt and/or paint out of my hair, but if I can't find a bandanna, I have been known to tie a grocery sack(plastic) or a dishtowel around my head. I have a very, very old pair of Dr. Marten's oxfords that have finally surpassed their dailywear duties and have been downgraded to home-wear, and they have a great deal of paint on them, the soles are coming away at the toes and the heel part is cracking away from the arch of the sole. The insoles went to meet their maker ages ago. I also have a pair of knockoff, fake Keds from Walmart that I bought to wear to the lake with a friend of mine a few years ago, and these suffice for at-home shoes, too. I frequently use them as house-slippers. Today, the look is a pair of extremely paint-stained, faded, frayed black corduroy bellbottoms and a pink sports bra with a good deal of yellow paint on the front. Barefoot, with a large, white dishtowel on my head. I will resume painting my kitchen cabinets very, very soon.
