The leafs are changing colors and falling. The days are growing shorter and the temperatures are dropping.
Though part of who I am involves heels...
Tis the season for boots.
The boots are a rare purchase from an actual retail store.
The rest of my wardrobe is mostly thrift store finds. I love the hunt of discovering unique and frugal finds.
Where once upon a time, I used to dress for a corporate lifestyle and I struggled to feel comfortable in casual outfits. The life that I am living now, is all about casual outfits.
A sweater and a pair of jeans is how you'll find me scouring booths at a flea market.
A pair of jeans, thick chunky brown leather belt and flannel shirt is my typical pick Grace up from school outfit.
We had our first parent teacher conference a week ago. Part of who I am is someone who gets anxious over things like doctor's appointments and, apparently, parent teacher conferences. When I get nervous, I will typically change my clothes at least 4 or 5 times. I prefer to wear something 'nicer' when I am nervous. And, I will typically fret over my hair, fluff, spray with hair spray and repeat until my hair practically needs it's own zip code.
Leggings, a short sleeve dress and a long sleeve black shirt with a tie front closure is how I nervously marched off to meet Grace's teacher. *Despite breaking out in hives during the conference, it went incredibly well and as I should have known all along, Grace is doing wonderfully.
So, this is me.
Where I once worked...I now work hard at being a full time mom. Where I once wore dresses...I now wear jeans and run around the park playing tag with my sweet daughter.
This is me.
I'd love for you to come back tomorrow and link up the story your clothes tell about you.
