I couldn't be happier to welcome the crisp, cool air. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons, but it's not so much for my love of the change of colors of the leaves. It's not really about my desire to drink pumpkin spiced coffee. It certainly isn't my desire to rake leaves. Autumn means sweatshirt season has arrived.
Sweatshirt season has arrived
Summer season requires tshirts. Wearing tshirts means voluptuous ladies, like myself, have to wear a bra. Listen, I'm all about letting the girls fly while I'm home, but it's just not appropriate to let my double Ds hang low under a tshirt. I'm a classy lady. However, when sweatshirt season arrives, all bets are off.
The beauty of the perfect sweatshirt is its ability to hide the business going on underneath it. Jiggling, jumping, low hanging goodies are well hidden. No one can see what's happening underneath the thicker material. Am I wearing a bra? Well, if you know me, once the sweatshirt season has arrived, I'm not. But you don't know that, just by looking at me.
Can you tell if I'm wearing what I wore to bed last night? Not when it's sweatshirt season, my friends. Sweatshirt season is the best season of all. It's the most glorious season of all....
What qualities make the perfect sweatshirt?
A perfect sweatshirt has to fit into a certain set of criteria. One does not just buy any "favorite team" sweatshirt! You need to find the perfect sweatshirt. It has to be bulky enough to hide the business underneath it, yet, still make sure to look cute. And, let's be honest, pockets are important. I need a spot to put my phone, plus my money and keys. Why? Well, I don't use a pocketbook. Pockets are necessary.
Finding the perfect sweatshirt is important, and when you find it, if you're lucky, you'll be able to get more than one. When the first one is being laundered, you use the other one. It's nice to have different colors, too. Since the sweatshirt will probably be an extra layer on top of a tshirt, or tank top, it has to be the right material. It can't be too hot, but it has to be warm enough.
An every day sweatshirt also needs to be free from cute sayings. Keep it simple, and something that no one will notice if you wear it five days in a row, at school drop off. All the moms out there know this is essential for the perfect sweatshirt.
Sweatshirt shopping is a science you never knew you needed to know, right? It's an article of clothing that must fit with your lifestyle, and is serious business. Dedicate the time, and make the right choice for yourself.
As for me? I'm a lover of this one. The color, the feel, the pockets, the price, OH MY! Grey is perfect, and I normally have a bright colored tank top under it, or a short sleeved tee. If I need a little extra warmth, I throw on a long sleeved tee.
