For the last 'almost' two months I have been wearing skirts and dresses everyday. And I literally mean EVERY day. It started about the time I wrote this post, where I talked about my need to 'Step Back in Time' and start to live a more simple life, as well as start to take a bit more pride in my appearance and put in a bit more effort. It's nice to do it for my husband, so I look nice for him and show him that I care about whether he is attracted to me or not, but also, importantly, it makes me feel great for the day, it makes dressing everyday fun (weirdly), and it also means I think a little bit about myself each day.....which is super important because all I ever do is run around after four kids and a husband!!
....ok....so minus the hat and boots....but this little greenish skirt was the one. I picked it up last year from the Charity store for $4 and it's really cute. (sorry about the random photo, this was from one of my outfit posts from last year). Anyway, I was just dagging about at home, so no reason to wear a skirt, but I had it on...then hubby comes home and is all like "Why are you wearing a skirt?"
Ummmm...good question, but my answer was simply "Because it's comfortable," and really....it was. This little change of wardrobe choice for the day then led to a whole blog change and a whole lifestyle/mindset change....and subsequently I've whacked on a skirt or dress every single day since. Seriously. I went to put on a pair of jeans once but they were so darn uncomfortable, what with all the seams and the tightness around my poor stretched out tummy, that I whipped them straight off and popped on the old comfy skirt again. My husband has said to me several times since....."I can't believe that it's taken you 40 years to figure out that skirts are comfortable!" (like he'd know how comfortable they are through experience!! ;) )
I can be found on Instagram at sweetwordsprettypictures so if you want to join in pop up a photo daily (until Tuesday next week!) and add the hashtag #weekindresses and see how we go!
