Well i’m back with an outfit post, and it’s an outfit i actually quite like.
I think the problem of sometimes going through a wardrobe transition, you can feel like you know what you want to look like and what to wear but you have a huge wardrobe already of things that have nothing wrong with them really, but yet they just don’t feel like you any more. I’ve decided to try and make my wardrobe work with my growth and change and this is what i came up with for a little date day with the hubbster.
I donned a dress for the first time in a wee while to go on a little day date with hubby to see Iron Man 3 whilst all the kiddos were at nursery/school. It was a nice rarity to have some time together, Paul has been working so hard lately, 6 days a week, and with the move that took way longer than we anticipated, it was just lovely to have some down time together, oh and Iron Man 3… Awesome.. Robert Downey Jr… um, amazing!!
I know this may seem like nothing different to my ‘normal’ blogging style, but i guess its more a feeling, like a place you want to be. Like i mentioned recently, i have been wearing lots of jeans lately and i’ve been really happy with that, but putting on a dress felt kinda nice too. I guess it made me realise that even though i want to look a certain way in my mind i dont have to rule everything out, thats just narrow mindedness on my behalf. I figure this probably sounds like babbling,haha! Babbling is all part of my processing process,lol!
If you’re wondering what the heck i’m talking about in regards to where i want to go clothing wise, i have been dreaming of less colours and more pretty fabrics.
Things like this tunic top,
I guess in a nutshell i am wearing less bright colours, which to me is a little different.
I hope you stick around to see the changes, i am yet to get back in to a good blogging rythmn, but blogging a bit ad hoc has felt rather freeing and less pressure.. im all about the stress free life right now!
