Whatever happened to putting on clothes when going to the store? Seriously, it seems like that people have no sense of propriety when they leave the house these days. Now I am not a prude, believe me! But there is a time and place for everything.
The stores invented the "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service" policy for a reason. They don't want people to walk in half naked just to buy a six pack and some smokes. They want you to be dressed decently so as not to offend anyone.
I remember a time when my mom and I would go to the grocery store. We would dress up because it was an outing for us. Now I see people going to the store in the pajama bottoms and UGG boats. Just today, I saw some young girls wearing just bikini tops and the absolute shortest pair of shorts I've ever seen. I know it's hot out and a holiday, but really?!?! At least put on a t-shirt and take a little pride in yourselves. For the life of me, I don't know who they were trying to impress, because I certainly wasn't. Apparently they haven't learned to "leave a little something to the imagination."
I may not dress up as much anymore, but at least I still wear clothes when I go outside or am in public. Perhaps I should think about those days when I used to dress nice and go shopping with my mom. I could start wearing more dresses and maybe...just maybe...I could be a role model for those young girls at the grocery store today.
Wishing you moments to dress to the nines!
