A wonderful post from the other day got me to do some thinking.
The title was Style Goals revisited.
The Question I posed to myself was:
Do I have style goals?
What are they?
How do I define them?
I had a necessary style shift because of my pregnancy. I'm currently 18 weeks and 5 days. I went into this with the thought that most of my clothing is loose and has flow. I thought I would be alright.
I found myself eventually saying a tearfull goodbye as I packed away most of my wadrobe.
This was my first shift. Being a plus size American 18 at 5'2 is already challenging now add on to that being pregnant and growing. But this was a 9 month temporary situation so I did not want to invest to heavily.
2 plaid shirt dresses
2 sweater dresses
Orthopedic shoes good support for walking.
A few head wraps.
I've been wearing the same thing to work and church for the past 4 months. As I did I went through major changes in work location, mindset, personal life challenges. I stopped posting and stopped enjoying my wardrobe. Which led me to another style shift.
Recently I decided to get back to what made me happy inside and out and that is my flamboyant and maximum style.
I've learned that I need to be flexible on this style Evolution.
I've learned that I need to wear things that make me feel like me happy.
I'm learning to have patience and to be kind to myself and my growing nugget.
I've learned or am learning that what I wear is a direct reflection oh how I feel.
I also learned that I love color as much as I love earth tones. With that being said.
I purchased and have had some things made for me. By my significant other and a good friend. Now I feel as right as rain.
I have a few dresses a few new hats and overalls and jumpsuit made for me. I even have some new thrifted pieces. .I cannot wait to wear them and show them to you.
Thank you once again for reading.
