Oh my goodness, it feels good to get an outfit post up. That probably sounds so stupid, and it very well may be, but glimpses of normalcy are what I live for. Getting dressed and put together has so much more meaning than it ever did before. It means I am feelin GOOD! It means I have some energy, it means I left the house! Ha!
All good things, all good things.
I have to admit though, at times I feel like getting dressed with this bald head is hard. You know I live for a denim and tee look. And basically everything comes off a bit androgynous, so I find myself trying to add things in to an outfit to make it more feminine. Which in truth, just isn’t really me. I mean, I own feminine, pretty pieces, but more often than not I throw those on with some ripped jeans or sneakers. So I have found myself over thinking things. Many times thinking I have nothing to wear now. So stupid! I have plenty to wear.
I remember feeling this way when I became a mom as well. I went from going to work in an extremely creative environment, which heavily encouraged my own sense of style, to being at home covered in spit up and dog hair wondering how many hours was too many hours to keep reheating my coffee. I remember thinking again, I have nothing to wear. I felt like I had to dress down. I felt like I needed to be in some form of sweats or leggings to really embrace this stay at home mom thing. And it is okay that many days I did end up wearing that. But I didn’t feel like me.
So I stopped all the thinking, and just got dressed again. I didn’t care if it was just a grocery store run, or a trip to the park. I didn’t care if I was overdressed for the occasion. I wore what felt good….more importantly what made ME feel good.
I had to get back to that thinking now. Not try and change because my situation has changed. Keep it simple. Throw on an all black outfit, and a trusty blazer!
