I feel really good about my outfit today and thought I’d photograph it. Excuse the terrible photo quality. I did these with my webcam since my phone is gone and the big camera needs a charge.
I built my best capsule wardrobe yet this winter. I am so pleased with how everything mixes and matches, and how no matter what I wear I feel great. Every single piece fits my body and life so well. Today I’m sporting an oversized gray sweater (hand-me-down from a friend), long sleeved black T (old from Loft), black compression running pants (old from Old Navy), grey knit legwarmers (clearance from Old Navy) and slip-on Skechers (clearance at TJ Maxx). The outfit is warm, comfy and perfect for a day of running around with my mini-me!
I think it is especially important for Mama’s who stay home to keep a sense of pride in how they look. Just because we spend all day with a snotty nose tyrant does not mean we should feel poorly about our look. Getting dressed each day is a few minutes of time just for myself and sets us up to have another excellent day!
I should also take a moment to update on my nose. I am so thankful for the amazing plastic surgeon and feel it was WELL WORTH all the hunting to find the right one. He did beautiful work. I will go back to him should I ever have more cancer removed from my face. I also had a dermatologist appointment yesterday for another spot on my shoulder (not cancer thank goodness) and to do a full-body check. She was so pleased with how my nose is healing and called me “a great healer who will live forever!” Such a nice thing to hear after all the medical drama of the last five years!
