Since I caught my niece’s tummy bug, and woke with a migraine, I am very happy that today’s theme requires almost no writing whatsoever. As you know, I have been doing about one topic each week from my friends’ 30 More challenge. I have to admit, too, that I started working on this one weeks ago, because it’s just fun! I get to share my personal style with you.
I love window-shopping, even if I don’t have the money to buy – just getting ideas is often helpful, and I can usually find similar looks at thrift stores or discount stores like Ross. So, without further ado (and so far, no need to run for the bathroom), I bring you my favorite looks:
This first one is what I look for when I shop for clothes – the hippy look is positively me. However, it can be hard to find just what works on my figure. I am really bummed that flare-leg jeans are no longer popular, as that would be all I would wear if I could get my hands on a pair that worked on my distinctly “mother-of-four” figure. And those bell bottoms with the green insert? I about fainted when I saw them!
If I could, I would probably wear a long, flowy dress everyday of my life. I love the feeling of fabric wooshing and swishing about my legs, and the sense of freedom pants can never seem to give. Not to mention that long dresses and skirts make me feel more fairy-like and elfin than anything else. And who wouldn’t feel pretty and graceful if they felt like that?
Originally, I found the following shirt in a lovely shade of green-yellow, but since I put this together, it sold out. I am far too tired to bother trying to find another in the right color, so picture this shirt style in a rich green, and you get the idea.
Great. Now I want to go shopping.
This one has been fun, but I need to go lie down again – I’m feeling distinctly woozy.
