BRRR!! It’s COLD! & Defining My Style
Posted January 23, 2013on:
Crazy that it is near sixty one day and the very next day it is at freezing with temperatures at nightfall expected in the teens… To Northerners this doesn’t sound cold ,but when it rarely reaches freezing and we end up with rain instead of snow, this is cold for us. I think the shock from it being 60 the day before makes it feel even colder….
I changed my planned outfit of the swingy cotton skirt to this with heavy sweater tights! I love the added warmth of my moto jacket and it doesn’t look too bad either! As I have been discovering my style through blogging photos questions from Sylvia’s Style Challenge and more recently by the Dressing Your Truth information, I recognize I think my style is FEMINE & FLIRTY , with and EDGE.
My style is a perfect blend of the Ying and Yang that my Dressing the Truth research revealed…That means both feminine and masculine, soft and hard… There is nothing better to me than a skirt and boots in the winter and then adding the moto jacket for the edge. I would wear this combination everyday if it was practical, but face it I am a homeschooling mother….And I love variety,
I so want to scream from the rooftops about how exciting the information was from the e-mails I received after signing up for them on Dressing Your Truth... I so resonated with one of the four personalities and was in awe of not only how much it defined me, but how much even the facial features lined up and each time she said,” If you are this type you may have heard people say this about you or you may feel that” … It was like my whole life was unfolding and came completely into focus. There are too many details to get into here, but it also helped me to see personalities of my children and my husband. I want to buy the book, as I firmly believe this understanding has the power to change how I view those close to me in my life. I am on a total buying freeze right now, but this will be my first purchase!
It feels fabulous to finally have words to describe my style. It seems easy for me to add that edge with jackets like the moto or the black zippered one from yesterday….I think boots can help with that edge as well… I wonder though, what will I do over the Spring and Summer to create that same feeling?… I think in the past my style changes in those months to embrace a stronger feminine side…
So, my Dear Readers, anyone have any suggestions on how to create that slight edge for the warmer seasons? Your comments are welcomed and greatly appreciated! Have you defined your own style and what words have you found to describe it…. Would love to see what you’ve come up with…
Gratitude: I am grateful that I pushed past my tiredness this morning and desire to snuggle up and go back to sleep and made it to my WW meeting… I am grateful that my 12 year old Connor braved the cold with me to take these photos… I am grateful for the conversation with my daughter where we talked about psychology and what is coming next for her as she prepares to graduate and go on to graduate school. I am grateful that for two days in a row my husband dropped by in the afternoon and we had just a few moments of face to face time(not texting or cell phones). I am grateful that my husband had a small sale yesterday and even in this slump that his spirits are high. I am grateful for finding the Dressing Your Truth website and that I invested the time in watching her videos.
