Tee and skirt: Goodwill — Sandals: Dansko — Belt: Thrifted — Bracelet and earrings: Hand-me-down — Pendant: Gift from Katie!
I feel strongly that this skirt likes me and wants me to succeed; it puts forth effort to be as flattering as humanly possible when I need it to be.
In return, I try to drool on it as little as possible.
(I really can’t promise no drool whatsoever. Case in point, I wore this outfit to the dentist yesterday and may have dribbled a bit while an extern was taking impressions of my teeth for a night guard.)
I like experimenting with unusual or “unflattering” silhouettes too, but when my self-confidence is low I tend to rely on traditionally flattering outfits for a boost.
I recognize that this is largely due to Society and the fact that women’s perceived worth is tied to our appearance, but I know very few women who have managed to completely deprogram that part of their brain, so I’m gonna give myself a break on this one. I like to think that this blog is a way for me to reclaim my appearance as having value to me, too, so let’s put it down as self-care, mmkay?
