Wow Look at me 3 Posts in one day!
For a while now I have had image and fashion on the brain. I have written & re-written a post about this in my head so many times. In fact I was doing it while hanging the washing outside this morning!
I am a bit of a slob. I have to admit that, it's ok because it's true. I would be happy to sit around in my PJs all day. I love my PJs.
My whole life fashion and clothes have never been a big thing for me. I've never enjoyed shopping and I have never had an eye for fashion, never ever. I wear clothes that are comfortable that cover up the worst bits of my body! I live in Jeans and T-Shirts. I guess I am pretty lucky I didn't marry a guy who cared about having a trophy wife who looked good all the time, to be honest sometimes I wonder why he wasn't more embarrassed by me!
To carry on with the slob subject lets talk about make-up. I don't wear it. Ever. Well ok not never ever, I have on occasion worn make-up but I don't own any and I have no idea how to put it on, except lipstick, I can do that.
None of this really bothers me. I am pretty lucky I guess that my appearance has never been something I have worried overly much about. I know some people can get totally caught up in their image and what other people think. I am pleased I'm not like that. It's not that I have an issue with make-up or fancy clothes. Not in the least. It's just never been an interest to me, or a necessity I have never had a job where I have needed to dress up. I'm not sure I ever will.
So why the sudden interest in fashion?
Well it's not that I have suddenly taken an interest, it's just that I am starting to care more about how I look. I haven't got a husband who is affirming my worth anymore. I am not feeling so good about myself for various reasons and I want to. I want to feel good about myself again. Wearing my PJs all day may be comfortable but it does not make me feel good. It makes me feel blah and slobbish.
I want to feel good.
I want to start putting a bit more flare in my wardrobe. I want some more "feel good" clothes. I want some more colour in my day. I want to step outside of my PJ comfort zone and get a little adventurous.
So I am challenging myself.
I am going to start sharing my wardrobe. I am going to start wearing different things. And hopefully I am not going to look incredibly embarrassing!!!
Wish me luck!!
