Back to Reader Mail...

Okay, after that brief diversion I'm going to get back to answering your questions...even though when I do I don't get any comments and I DO love getting them. (hint, hint)

Blogger The 5 Bickies asks..

Do you ever get the jitters from caffeine?
I get jitters from lack of caffeine. I'm like a heroin addict when I drink my first Diet Coke of the day. I shiver with pleasure as I take the first gulp.

what is your tennis rating? I am a 3.5

what is your favorite item of clothing? Funny you should mention that. I was shopping at The Grove (a swanky little shopping center near me.) I looked around at all the ladies in their accessorized outfits wearing makeup with their hair all neat, and realized that most of the time I dress like a "before" picture from a Redbook Magazine makeover spread.

My outfit of choice (when I'm not in a tennis skirt); plain t-shirt, fleece pullover, boot cut jeans and Dansko clogs, Uggs or Crocs. So boring. I think it's the official uniform of the ladies in my town.


I'm trying to step it up a bit, so I've been making the effort to put on cute sweaters, with fun belts, driving mocs and nice cords. I'm SO fashion forward.

To give you a direct answer to your question, my absolutely favorite item of clothing is my Barbour Classic Eskdale Jacket in Hunter Green. I wear it all the time.

That's all for now, I don't want you to O.D. on all things Jill. We now return to my regularly scheduled discussions on cussing, small testicles and my feisty temper.

I wore these crop pants to work, because I am 5'3 and they fit perfect to my ankle and some smart ass co-worker of mine said" typical mom get up, capris and a white shirt with flats" NO you didn't! I said FYI they are CAPRI's NOT crops BITCH!(bitch under my breath, I was at work afterall). My fave outfit these old khaki shorts that I safety pin together, so comfy, but they don't even deserve an new button!!

Gee, and I'm proud when I actually wear jeans instead of yoga pants.

Thanks for answering my questions! As I was freezing at football and baseball games today I decided I need to join the ranks of UGG wearing Mamas. Off to buy a pair now!

I've been cleaning out my closet...throwing out all my 'fat' clothes so that I'm forced back into my nice clothes. But my favorite right now?

my black capris and striped shirts a la 60's period.

ok i posted something on collage, may take it down though- i'm quite torn about it.

Ummmmmmmmm - what's a tennis rating?

preppyplayer said...

Jill,
I too, feel as though I am dressing up when i put on cords, driving mocs and a belt! I am usually found in tennis/paddle clothes. In fact we are playing in a state match in Bayhead next week. I swear a lot too-mostly when driving and playing my sports. The site you asked about-www.backyardartllc.com
I think you may like the tennis page :)
Thanks again for the NJ welcome.

Oh, my favorite jacket is my Navy Barbour Lissdale ( quilted nylon)!
I am seconding ( or thirding) the "I feel dressed up when I am wearing cords and driving moc's" too.....am usually in yoga pants though...and to think I was the generation that left college and went out into the work force in a navy Evan Picone suit, stockings, pumps, mens shirt and foulard floppy bowtie!!!lol.

Oooh, belts! I haven't even been brave enough to start with those yet, cute sweaters, yes...I'm just not quite sure how to work the belts yet. You're now my fashion icon ;)

Sass said...

You and I are both apparently sporting the mommy uniform.

Although, my footwear of choice is always Rocket Dogs.

But other than that, we must be twins. ;-)

Jaina said...

Great answers. I tend to go for flared jeans though. Haha. As for the caffeine...I know that feeling. I go in and out of caffeine phases...I try to give it up completely, but then it sucks me right back in.
