What I'd Wear Wednesday: Silk vs. snot

What I'd wear today if I could: something different like this silk tunic by Laundry by Design. I wouldn't wear it as a dress, though, but a top over jeans. I hardly ever wear blue, but I dig navy.

See, I get a little tired of cotton T-shirts. Sometimes I wear a wrap top or, like today, a button-front shirt (with my camo sneakers!). So when I saw this silk top, I melted. Can't a mama wear silk?

But here's the thing. Have you ever seen a slug and the trail it leaves behind as it moves? Fly has been leaving a trail on my shoulders (and JP's). The poor boy's nose has a leak. You don't have to be a rocket surgeon (as JP would say) to know snot trails and silk don't mix.

But maybe it's not so much a fabric thing as it is a color thing? For example, would the snot look less noticeable on a white shirt, whether that white shirt is cotton or silk?

Only a mama would ask.

Who am I kidding? Sigh, this is not a shirt to wear around a toddler....

Lol! Some days I look like I have been run over by a herd of slugs. The boys are finally getting the concept of tissues for this cold, so my clothing has been spared the indignity of being used to wipe snot.

Snot trails...too funny. Pretty dress, but I agree it would look great with jeans.

Snot trails and greasy hand marks that would never come off! Beautiful dress for a child free zone.

My kid would be lifting up that short skirt every chance they got. But a mama can always dream, can't she??!!!

With me it's more the issue of snags than smears. Sigh. Whole lot of cotton and lycra.

It's a beautiful dress - but definitely would not hide those lovely snot trails!

God that dress makes me yearn for the days when I could do it justice!

The snot would leave a nice, shiny sheen across the top of the shirt, I would think!

it is a very lovely dress but you are right, snot would not be its best accessory :)

There are so many things I put in the "not toddler wear" category...

I love it as a shirt...as a dress? Well, it kinda looks like PJs, so maybe the snot trail would be appropriate then.

I love it. I have neither the height nor the legs to wear it as a dress, though. My wardrobe since becoming a mom is just so very sad. Sigh...

Oh sure you could wear it, just while Fly was sleeping.

I've currently been wearing snot. On both shoulders. It's grand and I'm tired of changing so I've decided to pretend it's supposed to be there.

Very cute! But I too am imagining what would show. In my case, Spagettios. sp? You'd think I would know, given how many cans I've opened...
