InStyle v. MyStyle

12 Jul

Yesterday I sat down and flipped through the July issue of InStyle, and I decided I would adjust the headlines to fit MyStyle. Here’s what I came up with … (Please note, these are actual headlines from this month’s InStyle):

InStyle: Rocker v. surfer … both are totally cool, but they appeal to very different personalities

MyStyle: Mom jeans v. jeggings … both are totally hideous, but appeal to very different personalities


InStyle: What would you snack on during an opera?

MyStyle: What would you snack on from your kid’s plate?


InStyle: Let there be neon

MyStyle: Only if it isn’t on my lower half


InStyle: (What to wear to a) wedding reception

MyStyle: (what to wear to a) playground in 95 degree weather and 100 percent humidity


InStyle: (What to wear to a) Sunday picnic

MyStyle: (what to wear to a) Sunday laundry marathon


InStyle: You can do the new prep

MyStyle: Why would I want to? I did the old prep


Instyle: Look cute at concerts

MyStyle: Look cute at “Day Out With Thomas”


InStyle: Supernatural style

MyStyle: Au Nat-ur-ale Style: How to go four days without washing your hair


InStyle: Show some skin … one time you’ll be happy to you have a hole in your shirt

MyStyle: I have a hole in my shirt? I never noticed


InStyle: Dream Weavers … wicker and raffia go far beyond the humble picnic basket

MyStyle: Picnic … won’t a used Target bag do?


InStyle: (Clothes for) Day into evening …

MyStyle: (Clothes for) Night into day … how to sleep in your clothes and then wear them for carpool

    I would like for you to expand on your last headline- clothes you can sleep in and wear for carpool…

      Ha! Yes, I guess that’s not very clear. Sometimes I sleep in yoga pants, a t-shirt and job bra, and just get up and go in the morning. I used to wear work out clothes to bed thinking it would inspire me to excercise first thing in the morning, but that rarely worked. Now I just do it so I don’t have to take time to get dressed in the chaos of getting kids to preschool and a husband out the door to work. I only have to go to my office two days a week, so working at home in wrinkled yoga pants usually works for me. Thanks for reading and responding! Kathleen

    Kathleen, this is fun to read! And I USUALLY do preschool drop-off in whatever I wore the day before–also slept in–and then shower and change when I get home from drop off. So I totally get it. Hope you are doing well and glad to be counting down to 40 with you. I have a blog, but I write in it approximately once every 4 months. I walk around-carrying my iphone from room to room like Linus’ blanket also–drafting entries in my head but then I’m too tired at night to actually write them down. One day though!

      Hey Autumn ~ I am impressed you shower and change at some point! Ha! I Thanks so much for reading! I absolutely will check out your blog too. I walk around writing entries in my head as well, and most never make it to the computer. I hope I can stick with updating the blog til next June … generally I am not strong in the stick-to-it-ness category, so this project will be a challenge.
