Focusing on clothes isn't that high on my list of priorities. Partly I'm sure because growing up Amish the style of clothes we wore was determined for us, and we simply picked colors we liked from those that were permitted in our community.
Getting ready to go somewhere didn't take long. I'd simply open my closet and decide if I felt like wearing purple, blue, or teal on that particular day.
I still don't have many options, in fact people probably wonder if I have more than one shirt/blouse. I do for everyday use, but not for things like going to church where I wear the same thing every time, year round. Doesn't bother me at all.
The girls however, apparently haven't quite picked up on the same content feeling regarding clothes, even though they have way more than I do. This morning they were pawing through their closet trying to decide what they want to wear tomorrow when they have friends coming over.
Rosebud finally sighed a long sigh as she surveyed her pile of skirts ...... that she had chosen when they were acquired. "I haven't a thing to wear that doesn't look as if it didn't come straight from 'Forever 40'," was her dismal pronouncement.
That, my friends, is another little something I miss about the Amish. Everyone wore the same type of clothes and hairstyles. You had so much more time to focus on life, instead of trivial things, like clothes.
