We really should not be surprised that when it comes to our appearance, the majority of us tend to think more negatively than positively. Our owner’s manual should come with a warning about emotions. Something like this:
PLEASE BE AWARE….This woman comes with insecurities and unexplained tears due to bad hair days, bad complexion days, muffin tops, wrinkles, age spots, sagging, chipped nails, bunions, calluses, unwanted hair, and overall body issues.
RED LIGHT WARNING….all of the above is exaggerated during operational time known as MENOPAUSE!
Our insecurities drive us to believe all kinds of things. For some reason, I have believed that I do not look good in pastels. However, I look at this outfit and think well it is not so bad. Gigi is constantly telling me that she has wonky legs and her legs don’t look good in slim leg pants…I think they look fierce in this outfit!
I learned from WHAT NOT TO WEAR a long time ago, that we should always try on the clothes we think will not look good, because often we are pleasantly surprised. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, there are items and colors which do not look good on me, but now I try them on first before I say that.
|My daughter picked these up on sale at Anthropologie! She loves them!|
You are not going to see me in pastels very often, but after trying them on in the last year, I will no longer shun them.
Is there a garment or color you stay away from that maybe you should just try? It costs no money to try things on!!
Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!!
