Are you laughing already? I almost am.
Have no fears if you suddenly thought I was going to be one of those gals who blogs about fashion regularly. This is so not that. But, this spring weather and the fact that I'm not dressing simply to be able to nurse a baby in public has me thinking about my clothes and what I wear again. And for the most part, it's fun.
First and foremost, I am not what I would consider a highly fashionable person. Meaning, my idea of a good time is not spending the weekend at the mall or shopping 'till I'm dropping every chance I get. And all the girls in America probably just hung their heads in shame, lol. But, it's just not me. I DO like to look nice and lately I've been thinking more about my personality showing through what I wear, other than the random paint flecks that are quite often on my hands.
I'm a mama and I adore art, in all its forms. The two biggest parts of who I am (besides wife to my wonderful husband). So I want my dressing to reflect that.
The outfit above may be the totally wrong mix of things but I happen to love it so as always, don't tell me if it isn't your thing. :)
These outfits I all liked because they were layers and I love, love layers. Not because I feel like I'm hiding but just because I can mix and match things. My jewelry is very simple these days because little hands get ahold of it and things either go missing or get broken. This owl necklace was from my sister and it is my favorite piece ever. I wear jeans 6 days a week usually, but do like the printed jean look for spring. I'm hoping my boots aren't too hot for wearing in the summer some. They are just now starting to get so, so comfortable.
I usually shop at Target and thrift stores. Occasionally Old Navy. I hardly ever pay full price for something. We are a one income family and I will happily buy less clothes, and buy them on sale if it in anyway helps us stay on budget. And you know what? Even if I had millions, I'd still buy my clothes on sale. I'm convinced you can look nice without spending $200 on a dress.
The outfit above is an example of why I like thrifting! I can mix and match each of these pieces, and all together they cost $11.50.
This weekend I was looking around Target and saw several dresses I loved but they were short in the front and long in the back. I just can't quite wrap my head around that trend.
What do you think?
Haha, and then there's this. I didn't know if it would have been inappropriate and childish for me to wear or cool so I left it there. ( But I secretly like it. )
How are you when it comes to clothes/fashion?
I certainly care because I think the image we project does say something about us.
But, I'm also just as comfortable posting pics in no makeup and sloppy clothes (I frequently post IG pics of no makeup). I'm the same Sara with or without the pretty clothes.
But isn't it nice to feel put together?
It's an added bonus that running has made my clothes fit fantastic this year.
I'm hoping, praying, and believing I can keep it up.
What do you do to feel good about your appearance?
Does it matter a little or a lot to you?
