I have not posted in a good long while because of a few things. I need a new camera, my current one does not work as well as it should. I'm trying to figure out my new body, conduct a job search, and adapt to my new role as Mommy (Whew! I'm tired!)
Today in celebration of acquiring new bras I thought I'd drag out my clothes to see what fits and what will need to go. I had not planned on wearing brown but I was so enamored with this skirt I just could not resist. It might be a little over the top for some, but considering I am truly dressing for pure enjoyment I thought why not mix a boldly printed full skirt with ruffles and add a statement necklace to boot?
Stylistically I can't tell you where I am. I can definitely tell you that I am in transition. I still love structure, I love ladylike details, and color for sure. My style goal is met daily if I get dressed :-) . DD doesn't care what I wear so long as she has a peek-a-boo partner-- it's hard to maintain a rotation of outfits when getting dressed on a daily basis is optional.
Honestly I haven't prioritized getting dressed because I know there are somethings that aren't going to fit. I also know that I'm going to have to learn new proportions and techniques to dress my body. I am not quite ready to admit that some of the changes to my body are permanent and as a result some things are not going to fit in the same way they did before. As a result those things will have to be purged from my closet (I'm sad about that). How is it that we get so attached to outfit combinations or pieces in our closets? Do any of you get a little sentimental when it's time to purge your closet?
Anyway all of these pieces are at least 3 years old. The only thing new here are the accessories and my slightly different hairdo.
