Lately, I have been in a rut. At the beginning of summer, I was so excited to wear all of my little summer dresses and tanks with skirts. I dressed up for a month, but then the newness wore off. I’m at home all day with kids, so I got lazy. Cute little dresses and skirts became white tees and p.j. pants. I guess I figured there was no point in getting ready if I was just going to be at home all day. I even stopped fixing my hair and opted for ball caps and headbands instead. This behavior contintued for the remainder of the summer. Jammies are for bedtime, not daily living! I should know better.
Not getting ready made me feel completely unmotivated and frumpy. There is just something about walking past a mirror at 3:00 in the afternoon and seeing yourself make-up free with a ball cap and jammies that makes ya feel like an ogre. It also made me feel insecure. Matt got up every day and got ready for work, and here I was, looking like I just rolled out of bed at dinner time. He never said anything, and always makes me feel like I’m beautiful, but in my own head, I thought, he must think I am a total skuz-bucket. Well, I gave myself a swift kick in the arse, and decided to look for inspiration.
A couple of weeks ago, I really started getting into Pinterest. So, I logged on hoping to find my fashion inspiration. There were tons of outfits all put together, just laid out waiting for me! All of the sudden, I found myself getting excited to get ready again. So, I called my girl Julie that styles my hair and made an appointment to get my hair cut and styled. Boy, what a difference a new hair cut makes! It whipped me into shape real quick. See, I am not one of those chics that makes my hair appointment months or even weeks in advance. I need to be able to call a day or two in advance, while I’m feeling motivated, and Jules just gets it. She gets me in her chair, tells me my hair is a hot mess, then fixes it all up! Well, this opened the flood gates for change. It started a complete overhaul for me. I have now reorganized my closet, looked at all of the outfits that I found on Pinterest, and made a list of things that I had, and things that I would like to buy to help complete some of these looks! I am ready to go! Let’s just hope I can stay motivated for more than a month! Wait, in a month or two, it will be sweater and Uggs time! Yippee!
Check in tomorrow to see some of my favorite outfits! I can’t wait to share!
Keep it real!
