I’ve always been a super huge
stalker fan of WIWW over at the Pleated Poppy. But I have to confess, I was at a season in life where it didn’t make sense. Three little boys in diapers, working night shift on the weekends, come on, let’s just say what it was, I lived in scrubs and sweats (and I didn’t even work out).
As the seasons have changed and my baby turned 2, along with wanting to lose the “baby weight” I’ve realized that when I get dressed I feel so much better about myself. It’s not nearly as much about fashion as I kind of wish it was, (I’m a wannabe fashionista, I’ve said it before), it’s really more about me taking care of myself.
I’m finding the root of the issue isn’t just getting dressed, it’s staying dressed, as I often return to my sweats after preschool pickup. However, #getdressedstaydressed was too long of a hashtag to try. I don’t expect anyone to be truly inspired by my outfits I post, but maybe you’ll find inspiration in the process of self discovery and taking care of yourself.
So here is what I wore:
I still work weekend nights at the hospital, but I’ve graduated from surgical (fat) scrubs to a more fitted style (and I find I feel much better in them).
Unseasonably warm temps this week and I ventured back into a skirt. Skirt and sweater from Old Navy. Shirt from Compete Every Day. Shoes from Clarks.
I know, it’s not much, but it’s a challenge to myself that I’m willing to accept. My family deserves the best of me and I deserve to take care of myself.
Does getting dressed make a difference in your day?
