my sense of fashion has always been a little…different. my tastes are all over the place from vintage styled, mad men-esque shifts to punk rock t-shirts and my doc martens that I still have from high school and i tend to dress in cycles. ladylike for a while, dirty hippie for a bit, so on and so forth. lately i’ve been digging a hippie vibe with maxi skirts, grateful dead shirts and lots of leather and turquoise accessories.
thankfully, i have a great job that allows me to dress however i like and this gives me such a feeling of freedom; something i never had at my other jobs.
sometimes people ask me about my outfits and how i put together my pieces. i really have no secrets except i wear comfortable clothes and i don’t care what other people think. i dress for myself. i spent a lot of my time in the past worrying what other people thought of me and now that i’m in my 30’s i have discovered that it doesn’t matter one bit. they will form their own opinions and sometimes, no matter what, they will disapprove. so what? i like it and that’s all that matters. i get the most complements when i toss on a marvel avengers shirt and a long skirt. “mommy, you so pretty.” nothing beats that!
of course, i still totally ask my husband “does this make me look lumpy?” and things like that, and i want to know that he thinks i look good, but other than that, i don’t care. i also don’t often buy things unless they are on sale and i mostly shop at target and old navy.
