When I put this outfit on yesterday for a casual look at work, I wasn’t very comfortable wearing it. The student dress code is no colored jeans. I really try to be an example and not give them a reason to break the rules but it was a testing day and I had to spend 3 hours in one class so comfort won.
I did run back and forth to my closet about 10
times trying to decide if I was going to be brave and walk out the front door. After
I did and saw my reflection in the side of my truck I was pretty pleased with
One reason is it took me a long time to appreciate my long legs, curves (YES, I think I have curves for a skinny girl!), and small waist. I know what you are thinking. Some folks would kill to have what I didn’t initially appreciate but that’s a part of my growth process. I also have accepted the fact that I have big eyes but my lashes are killer (bats them as I type).
Unfortunately, I looked ashy and washed up on these photos and no amount of editing made me look better so I chopped my head off.
I lost a few pounds over the summer. My Granny’s death knocked the wind out of me and I wasn’t able to/did not function very well for two months. I’m working on eating healthy and gaining the pounds back but overall I’m pleased with the Creator’s design.
If nothing else, I hope my students always see a lady who dresses appropriately. My readers see a real life mom who just happens to love fashion and the color red, blue and green. I don’t want to post any day where I’m putting on airs and not being my true self.
Is there something about you that you’ve come to embrace because you blog or read other blogs? Do share. I’d love to read your comment.
