Hope everyone's week is off to a great start. I needed a boost up into mine, so I wore some favourite things.
|scarf: Becky's (South Padre Island, TX), worn here|
skirt: Odille, thrifted
shoes: Kenneth Cole Reaction, Winners clearance $14, story here, also worn here
obi belt: Elizabeth Kelly London, etsy, worn here and here and here too
|necklace: Tradewinds (local shop), worn here and here and here|
carnelian ring: El Disco Super Centre (Progreso, Mexico) worn here with the scarf as well
It seems I am always saying, "This is my favourite!" and "This is super-comfy!" but of this I would also say it's one of the outfits I feel most 'myself' in.
|cropped jean jacket: Smart Set, worn here|
I don't know if I can say exactly what that means or why that is, only that it's true and good. What makes an outfit feel like 'you'?
|buttons: accumulated over time, oldest being "mellow" (25 yrs. ago) and newest my French-speaking John Fluevog robot.|
Though the particular types of clothing I associate with this 'myself' feeling have definitely shifted over time, my best guesses as to contributing factors might include colour(s), comfort, proportion / flattery, function, meaning / symbolism / memory, and degree of dressy vs. casual best fitting one's activities - yet there's still something hard to articulate, qualities which are perhaps more abstract or intangible.
Wishing you all the feeling of being grounded and centred in yourselves, regardless of the source!
