Extending the olive branch on tucking

Extending the olive branch on tucking

Happy Thursday, friends.  Today I would like to extend the olive branch on tucking.

First, for anyone in the dark, here is a background of what has been happening this week on the blog:

A comment on my post,  CHICO’S SUMMER OUTFIT IDEAS, hit me the wrong way.

There are many reasons I could offer up about why I took Chris’s comment about tucking the wrong way….but I did…and that is all that matters.

I responded, very strong, in the Sunday post , SUMMER SUNDAYS IN TEXAS….which began a long conversation about tucking in tops vs. not tucking.

I actually believe this conversation was beneficial and helpful to some…but, it could have happened a better way.

In the Sunday post, I wrote what this blog is about and what it is not about.

Here is one more…

THIS BLOG IS ABOUT ADMITTING MISTAKES WHEN I MAKE THEM.

So, Chris, I am extending the olive branch to you.  I ask for your apology as I mistakenly interpreted your comment wrong.

Chris responded and after re-visiting her comment, I do agree that it was not an attack on any of us.  

I really was triggered by that word “Frumpy” and did not want any audience member to feel badly about themselves if they do not tuck.

I see now that Chris was not doing that.

She responded:

 

So, Chris, I ask you to forgive me and let’s go forward this summer with shirts either tucked or untucked….and I will listen closely to what you have to say.

I do hope you continue to comment here.

One of the reasons I may have been distracted is that I have been caring for three very active young grandsons this week!

For that reason, I will not have an updated post tomorrow on Friday, but will be here Saturday with another 2024 Fashion Trend.

I ask forgiveness from all for my “quick to judge” attitude.  Yet, the conversation about the topic was awesome and beneficial…this audience rocks.

See you Saturday, ladies.

STAY STRONG & KEEP SMILING!!
