Okay, I admit, I'm addicted to blogs where people post what they are wearing. So, if I want to encourage others to do that, then I probably should put some of my own posts up. I think it also might be a useful step in self-acceptance. I don't mean self-acceptance in terms of not trying to do better in being healthy (I decided to rejoin Weight Watchers before the holidays, instead of waiting til afterwards, because this is, of course, the most challenging time and I wanted the "it's brand new and I'm losing three pounds a week" inspiration to see me through the holiday eating season), but self-acceptance in terms of not determining that life will begin when I can just lost 20 pounds (or earn $20,000 more a year, right?). But anyhow, I digress (as I always do). Here's my first installment, which lines up nicely with the Modest Mondays posts I found all over the blogosphere. This is yesterday's outfit. I do try to dress nicely all week, only adding a headcovering for church on Sundays, and maybe some of my more "uncomfortable" clothes. For example, for weekday wearing, I probably would have substituted the blue poplin faux wrap top for a nice teal knit top under a black cardigan (I have a thing about poplin - it's pretty, but not my favorite material).
