On this rainy, grey day, I woke up forgetting that I don’t live in England anymore. Whenever there are rainy days it really takes me back to my days over there, I become nostalgic, and maybe even a little lazy because I hate going out in the rain. It’s not always something you can avoid, so today I decided to post an outfit that made me feel sunny and bright.
I love bold, bright colors – Red is my favorite, but the pink of these pants is definitely high up there on the list. When I wear bold colors that I love, I immediately feel brighter and more able to cope with a rainy day.
I love cigarette style or tighter fitting pants, and today I am wearing them with a jeweled looser fitting top that adds a little dimension to the look. Because I am no longer a spring chicken, I like to make sure that what I am wearing is appropriate for my age, and that it looks classy. I feel like I can still wear pants that are more form fitting, because I don’t wear them in an inappropriate way. One of the biggest mistakes we can make with our style is to wear things when we see other people wearing them, even if they are not the most flattering or appropriate for us. You will never see me wearing a cropped top, bootie shorts, or even skirts that are just way too short. Not that I don’t think I have taken care of myself enough to have earned the priviledge of showing my toned legs or stomach, but more because at some point in my life I realized that there was so much more to me than showing my body to everyone.
When we dress we are essentially speaking to people, and the language we use determines how they react to us (at least 9 times out of 10). I don’t think there is anything wrong with wearing something that draws attention – but the question has to be, which kind of attention is it drawing, and more importantly, is that what I want people to think of me.
As a strong Woman I have enormous respect for other strong Women, and I especially love seeing a Woman dress in a form fitting dress or something else that just screams “I am who I am, and I believe in myself. I am strong enough to respect myself and love myself.”
As Women we have enormous power over how we are treated – I have noticed that when I am more feminine rather than aggressive, I tend to get more of what I want…
It’s simple, but it all starts with what we wear and how we carry ourselves…what do you want to say and who do you want people to know who you are?
