I've been so enthralled with projects around the house that my outfit of choice has been mostly pajama bottoms and t-shirts. But I have been inspired by one of my besties....Danielle. She is a momma with 3 little ones and she has been on fi-ah with getting out the pjs and into cute clothes lately....Go see for yourself .... here and here and here
Well anyways, I thought if she can make the time in the midst of all she has on her plate, I certainly can.
(by the way...she along with two other lovely ladies are hosting a conference called Hope Spoken. Go check it out! I will be sharing more about it here tomorrow! I'm supa excited about it!)
And if Danielle in all her glory wasn't inspiring/convicting enough, I come across an instagram post from another friend, Rebecca, looking all cute and spiffy. She also is a mom who runs her own business, Better Life Bags. Her caption was "Dressing for the day I want to have" and she described it as "the idea is to dress for the day you want to have, and not let the day have you. When I get dressed each morning I just have a better day."
So...with that said. Here I am dressed and feeling cute.
I even still felt cute after I looked at a picture of myself. Do you know what I'm talking about?....I forget sometimes that I'm 40 pounds heavier than I used to be...and then I see a picture and I'm like who is that person?!
Posing for these things can be awkward so Nick told me to "look unto Jesus" in the pic on the right. ;)
And while I'm feeling super cute, let's all ignore the obvious root problem I've got going on ok?
I mean, geesh... I just had my hair done like a month ago. Don't be surprised if I pop up totally brunette any day now...it's a coming.
leggings: Dirt Cheap
Boots: Target (although they showed up at Dirt Cheap for $8 a few weeks after my mom paid full price at target for these at Christmas a couple of years ago. Ughh)
The color gray just may be taking over the number one spot that black currently held in my closet.
This is my go to necklace. I wear it with everything. It's by Oragami Owl and a dear friend who sells them blessed me with this one. You can change out all the charms, you can add a back to it so it's not clear...the looks are endless. I am in the works of writing a post to confess my love for this thing. Seriously...it's my all time fave.
top: Ross // jeans: Old Navy via/Dirt Cheap // boots: Target // necklace: Oragami Owl
Well I"ll see ya'll later.
I gotta go dress for the day I want to have....and right now I don't want it to reflect the grungy, gray, worn out, stained up, 14 year old robe that I'm wearing at this very moment.
