Sweaters and pearls

For years and years I’ve been stuck in the same old rut of wearing black and dark colors and to be honest I hated it, but I felt stuck in that choice. I wanted to go more feminine. To wear colors and pretty stuff. But every time I tried on clothes like that I felt like I was wearing a costume. That I was a little kid trying on my mom’s clothes.

And I hated it. I hated that I didn’t have the confidence to wear what I loved. I’m a fairly confident woman. I know my body isn’t perfect (after two kids and with a love for sweet stuff nothing sits where it did when I was 20) but I have no problem putting on a bathing suit in summer or be naked around strangers. And still, wearing a red jacket made me feel like everyone was going “who does she think she is, wearing that?”

But, thankfully I got an awesome boyfriend who’s spent a lot of time telling me how much he loves it when I put on the feminine clothes I love. How beautiful I look when I dress up, and how he thinks I should wear exactly what I love. So this summer when I went out shopping with my sister (there was a sale) I went out of my way to pick stuff I would normally never buy, including a black one piece shorts set, with big pink flowers on it.

And when I went to the end of season sale this week I went a bit crazy (but I needed it all since I’m losing weight) and ended up buying four sweaters and four pairs of jeans.

2 pairs of jeans are just normal black, because you can never have too many black jeans, since they go with almost anything. One pair is white, which is a big thing for me because I’ve always seen that as very feminine but never owned a pair. And the last pair is white with leopard spots on them. Because why not? They are awesome.

The sweaters are all very comfy and perfect for the autumn weather. One is cream with rows of pearls down the arms and chest. It’s a bit big and bulky so the pearls help give it that feminine touch. The next is a very soft pink, and so soft I wanna run my face all over it. The third one is light grey with white pearls dotted around all over. And the last one is kind of funny. It’s actually a Christmas sweater from last years collection they were selling for next to nothing. It’s gonna be perfect for those Christmas mood days in December.

I absolutely love my new clothes, (even if they aren’t super colorful)and for the first time in my life I can’t wait to go shopping again. The old feeling still persist sometimes, but I’m beating it and that in it self feels so good.

Have you ever felt like this?

Love, Tea

  2. Never feel ashamed for your own style! In public, people will see you for all of a couple of seconds so it isn’t something we should ever worry about! I love wearing bold lipsticks, and no odd looks is going to stop me!

  3. I am so glad you’ve embraced shopping. I love it!

    Although now I have put weight on, I’m really beginning to hate it. Hopefully hitting the gym hard will help find my self love and in turn shopping addiction again x

  4. oohhh leopard spot pants sound lovely! I do wear a lot of black…mostly b/c it’s easy to match things with it and I find it slimming 🙂 So when I wear something colored, people do usually notice. It has made me realize I should probably wear more colors! I love that you are branching out and wearing what you want to wear. Also those sweaters with the pearls are beautiful and oh so feminine! Love!
