And of course that all depends on the season.
If you can't tell, I take my clothes pretty seriously. As in closet size is a real deciding factor when I'm looking for a place to live.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a shopaholic or anything. I rarely go shopping for clothes, but when I do, I make sure I get something I like and then boy you better believe I wear it. Every season or so I go through my closet and if there are things I haven't worn, I donate them. Otherwise, I pretty much wear everything I own.
Consequently I can go a few months without doing laundry (sorry Mom). I really tested this when I was having to go to a laundromat to wash my clothes but I've gotten a lot better about it and now that I have my own washer and dryer in the house, I do laundry as I go. Makes life much easier.
But back to my clothes. My daily prompt asks me to write about an outfit that makes me feel good.
There are so many. Apparently I get bonus points for posting a picture, so I'll only post one or two. I'm not a huge fan of putting my face out there, never mind the fact that I have a Facebook account, but still I think I can manage this. Apparently I only have 7 consistent readers and you probably all know what I look like anyways!!
For every day wear, especially now that it is fall, I LOVE wearing skinny jeans, with tall boots and long sweaters with a wide belt around the waist. I just love it. It keeps me warm, it allows me to move around and function with out the draft of a skirt, and it compliments my figure. I had to dig way back through some of my pictures but I found this. It should tell you how much I like this outfit, this picture was taken roughly 5 years ago and I still wear it!
I have lots of other outfits that I absolutely love, I just don't have pictures readily available of them. For example, there is nothing better than my favorite pair of boot jeans, my boots (of course), and just a simple white v neck T-shirt.
Now the following two outfits just make me feel like a goddess but I don't have much occasion to wear them. Which is ok.
When I was in college, I was a favorite date for some of my friends for their formal parties because I cleaned up very nice, we all enjoyed each others company in general and I was socially independent, meaning they could take me, get us seats and then they could wander around and talk to whomever they wanted because I didn't require their presence to have fun and interact socially with other guests. Of course they would hang out with me, it's not like we showed up and then I got ditched. Most of these events were a lot of standing around and chatting (sounds super fun right??) There wasn't a lot of dancing or moving around so this was when all the girls would break out the swanky little cocktail dresses.
Now this next dress can be....very revealing. So I always pair it with a very nice black sort of cardigan. At these types of events there were usually more than enough girls willing to show off everything they had, so I felt no need to show mine off as well. This picture was already blurry, so I didn't bother to edit it at all.
