more of the resolutions – ootd

So I mentioned in my last post that this is the first year I have ever made New Year’s resolutions and I must admit I am enjoying holding myself to them.  In addition to making sure to include fish in our diet at least once a week, I also resolved to wear a skirt or dress at least twice a week.  I have so many cute clothes that I don’t wear enough, because I grab the easy pants/top in the morning rather than making a little effort.  (Especially during the frosty, frosty winter…. brrrr!) As I have followed through with this plan and dressed up twice a week, I have definitely experienced a little confidence boost and pep in my step, if you will.

I know that dressing more attractively and taking time on yourself can make you feel better, but today just really hit that fact home for me.  I’ve had a difficult time in the last week or so and have had to draaaag myself out of bed to work in the morning, so this morning I totally forced myself to dress up.  And I had a better day than I’ve had in a week! Wooo! The power of fashion.

Note: I also ALWAYS end up wearing this skirt with a black top. Over and over and over.  This morning, I said, NO MORE! I WILL incorporate some color.  And I really like how it turned out. Hoorah.

  3. I love you in a skirt! You look just as cute as a button! And hooray for incorporating a colored top, too! I know what you mean about finding it hard to dress up in the mornings, though — I have so many mornings where I just give my closet the stink eye, haha!
