Tomorrow, I will be going outside of my comfort zone in a million ways. It’s exciting and nerve-wracking. I will probably embarrass my kids and my parents with the one or two hundred pictures that I’ll Instagram to everyone.

You can watch the spectacle from here:

Right now, I’m dressed in my typical mom outfit. Shorts and a t-shorts. Flip-flops too. It’s all age appropriate. Nothing that I’m wearing is too sexy.

Tomorrow, it will all change.I’m going to Warped Tour – all day long. My outfit will be sexy maybe.

People might say, “You’re too old.”

“Too chubby.”

“Too much like someone’s mom.”

“Too much like my mom.”

“Toooo sexy for an old chick.” “Old lady, I feel uncomfortable.”

All I can say, is that I’m not the fattest, oldest, least sexy person that will be there. Yes, I will be old enough to be almost everyone’s mother. It’s a role that I’ve accepted. I have to stop myself from getting out the band-aids and tissues sometimes.

There’s always one person, usually a roadie, that is older than me. Thank goodness for roadies, right?!

Of course, they could not think that I look sexy at all. In fact, it might be a dumb outfit. However, this outfit will be born out of the need to not wear flip-flops in the mosh pit. Flip-flops are dangerous at a concert where you can have your feet and other body parts stepped on – all day long.

You might think I’m even thinking like an old lady. Damned right! I’m an old lady that doesn’t want her toes broken.

So this old chick will be wearing her boots – her very comfortable, dependable black boots. The knee-high socks will just be a bonus to keep it interesting. I’ve never worn boots and knee-highs together.

Okay, maybe not never.

This was an isolated case. You can’t even prove that I’m wearing boots. These aren’t even my clothes.

Yes, tomorrow will be a day spent outside of the comfort zone. I absolutely cannot wait. I’m ready, except for buying the aforementioned knee-highs.

So I’ll be out buying knee-highs and preparing to embarrass my kids.

It’s what I do.

      Thanks! 🙂

  2. The only way to have a comfort zone is to step out of it every once in a while. I’m sure that people will be minding their own and not notice you as much as you might think. Just be yourself and have fun. 🙂

      My boyfriend said no one will even notice because they’ll be wearing the same thing. Let’s hope so! 🙂

  3. Valentina – I have been in designing business for most of my adult life. My career started as a fashion designer and continued as an interior designer. At one point in my life, I decided to make a huge leap, went across the pond from Europe, and got established in the USA. I have designed and produced just about everything: clothes, shoes, jewelry, accessories, beautiful homes, home décor, cafes', restaurants, food and a lot more will come, I am sure. There is no sign I want to quit anytime soon. I am the author of six published books, available at Amazon http://goo.gl/xUZfk0 and Barnes&Noble http://goo.gl/q7dQ3w - where you will find my design book on the subject of colors: ©RED-A Voyage Into Colors - Second Edition and the latest travel narrative: ©The Road To Top Of The World. Here you can read my three blog columns of which I am the author https://valentinaexpressions.com My two passions, fashion, and interiors have helped me making a superb living, but then I love colors and colorful food. People describe me as "the colorist". Oh, yes, I like all the colors! Nothing around me is dull and boring. I color my clients' homes when they allow me, otherwise, they will keep on living in a dull environment. However, regardless of their color preferences, I love them all, even if they like beige tones. Valentina
