Down with Khaki...

OK. So to further support my claims about my sister-in-law, and how she always wears pretty much the same thing, I thought I'd share a few more photos from the past few years that I dug up. Let's note how in each and every picture, the bottom half of her is khaki and the top half of her is just a plain color. Also note, that all shirts are tucked in. (Seriously, what person under the age of 40 still tucks in their shirts?) And those shorts and pants you see in the pictures could very well be just one pair of shorts and one pair of pants that she's been wearing for 4 years now.

I think that if perhaps she wore cool khaki things, I'd be less likely to make fun of her. I mean I have never, EVER seen the girl in a pair of pants that are bootcut. Never. It's always straight legged, Eddie Bauer jeans. Very "momlike." How about some cargo pants? Or something with a slight flair at the bottom? Something a little bit low rise instead of the ones you wear with the waist at your belly button. Or, oh, I dunno... something with a stripe or a polka dot or a fucking heart on it or something for the love of god...

Anyway, I'm laughing to myself right now because I now realize that every single time I see this girl from now on, I'll have to take a picture so that I can post it and we can all make fun of her. Sweet.

And I am right now, thanking god that they don't own a computer and I'm 100% positive that she doesn't even know what a blog or google is...

Christmas 2003 (She looks so pleasant, doesn't she? And I swear on all things holy, that turtleneck sweater was tucked into her pants. I have another picture if you don't believe me.)

LOL! Yeah, you better hope that she doesn't know that you have a blog. ;)

I own a few khaki things too, but wear more black bottoms than khaki. Oh, and the "tucking the shirt in" days are soooo gone....especially since having kiddos. ;)

Melissa, if you read this, does not that just look like something the "fundys" would do, well except for the shorts. They are always tucking things in. LOL!

Alien, I have to leave my shirt untuck to hide my big tummy! :o)

She has TOTAL 'mom clothes'. LOL!

I would read this on the day I'm wearing khaki capris and a solid T-shirt. At least the capris are cargo. I get points for that, right?

Who in the world tucks in a sweater?? YUCK!

It's not that I don't believe you, but I really want to see a picture of the turtleneck *sweater* tucked into her pants. For comedic purposes.

Melissa said...

She hasn't changed her hair in awhile either, has she?

Yeah, Chelle, the fundys do a lot of tucking. LOL

I can't judge. I wear a lot of solid tshirts.

Tink said...

Wow. That is some serious Khaki overdose. I look forward to making fun of her again...and again...and again. :)

Melissa said...

Oh, and by the way, she totally reminds me of Monica Lewinsky.

Janet said...

I don't do khaki or solid shirts but, I do still tuck. LOL There are just certan outfits that you HAVE to tuck with. Never tuck a sweater though!

Scully said...

I swear I am LOL at "Tuckmaster" seriously. That is freaking hilarious and should have been on Seinfeld or something.

Amber said...

Yes! I was TOTALLY thinking Monica! LOL.
Only...are her khakis often cum stained?
