Maybe it’s because I’m creeping up on 30, maybe it’s because I’m a new mom, or maybe it’s because of the constant top knot and sweats, probably it’s all three, but I’ve been feeling a bit defeated in the fashion department lately. I feel like I’m loosing all of my hipness. Actually, now that I think about it, maybe I never really had any to begin with? Either way this plain Jane is getting even more plain! I have a closet full of clothes that I never put on, and when life calls for real pants, it’s straight to the jeans and a plain shirt. I’ve stopped caring A LOT. While I’ve mostly embraced this new total lack of caring about what I look like with open arms, I’m thinking putting a bit more effort into myself would probably feel good. I’ve entered into strange new territory and I just haven’t quite found the middle ground yet. I desperately want Jolie growing up watching her mommy be comfortable in her own skin. Hours and hours in front of a mirror just doesn’t say “comfortable with who I am” to me, but also being a complete slob maybe doesn’t celebrate who I am quite enough.
I’ve thought about doing a “fashion” blog here and there. (Honestly, I can’t even really call it fashion. I’m certainly not a go to person on what’s hot in the fashion world.) Just some pictures of clothes I’ve been wearing. Mostly, it would be a way to force myself into wearing real clothes. I want to have a reason to get dressed again, and maybe even push myself a little with something other than jeans and a t-shirt. The problem is forcing myself into taking a bunch of selfies and then put them out into the world for everyone to see!! The idea sort of makes me cringe. I guess we will see what happens. Maybe I’ll try it once? EEEEKKK!! I don’t know. Anyway, until then, I thought I’d share with you some looks that are inspiring me to ditch the sweats!
Ok so it’s still basically jeans and a t-shirt, but what can I say?! I’m plain and it looks more put together than my current leggings and sweatshirt! Baby steps, people!
I love this dress and sweater look! Of course my dress wouldn’t be nearly as low cut, but you get the point.
I’m definitely a fan of all black, but add a denim shirt to the mix and I’ll likely never take the outfit off!
I’m obsessed with a camel duster jacket with a casual look underneath!
So there’s a few outfits that are basically all the same! HA! I’ve got a long way to go, but I’m trying people! I already feel motivated to, at very least, shower and throw on some jeans!
