And I’m not talking about writing here, I’m talking wardrobe sense. I’m making no apologies for being completely off my normal topic though!
I have zero style, sometimes less than zero. I’m a hodge podge of things that ‘don’t look terrible on me’. Seriously, when I shop, that is my main goal – to get stuff that doesn’t look really bad.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t always end well. Not looking bad is not the same as looking fab. I generally buy one thing at a time, and hardly ever stop to think about how an item of clothing would look with any of the other pieces of clothing that I own. Sure I have a couple of nice bits, but everything is pretty much just there to tide me over to that one day when I’ll have the figure I want and the money to go nuts and actually attain some kind of style.
You know, that fairy tale day, the one that isn’t likely to ever happen – at least not any time soon with all this baby making business!
So I’ve decided that regardless of the fact that my body is going to swell and grow over the next 7 months or so, (regardless of the fact that after that it will be a long slog to getting to where I really want to be physically) I’m sick to death of shopping for things that don’t look bad and it’s about time I decided what I want to look like and go for that.
But still, I don’t really know where to start.
I went shopping today though and I feel good about it. Yes, the three items I bought ARE all black, and no, black is not a style (I wish it was, that way I could say I have a style lol). But the top looks good with the pants, and the dress is in a style that looks fantastic on me, and all three items will fit for the duration of the pregnancy and afterwards, so I feel like I shopped smart if nothing else and that is already an improvement.
So what’s your style? How do you decide what you want to look like? Or have you just basically been wearing the same kinds of things as you have for years and don’t stop to give a second thought to your purchases? I would really love to hear how other people do it.
