Linking up with Jane again this week for Shiny T Tuesday and I've got to say that this week was a little difficult for me. The theme is undeniably me. All the clothes I love? Too small right now. So, I looked at my uninspiring closet and wondered what I could do? I could go back to my scarves, but what else would I wear?
I thought about wearing my Pride and Prejudice shirt, but while it represents something I love - literature and specifically dear Jane Austen - it does not represent my style. I had all these ideas of me posing, reading a book. Or doing some homework - because quite frankly, that's when I feel most like myself.
Then I found it. The one sweater I can still pull off, that I fell in love with years ago. That I feel good in every time I wear it. That I've now had to mend because one of its seams tore. It's kind of funky. A little bit different. And yet comfy. It was a splurge at Anthropologie back when my weight was where I liked it.
So, I started trying to take pictures myself... because... well... my husband was rushing around and I didn't want to bother him. He's working nights and only had a few minutes before he was off to go sleep.
I maybe should stop here, because I almost look kind of cool, but he walked in on me and offered to help. And then I stopped looking cool...
He was supposed to be taking pictures of my outfit. My whole body. Instead, he only took pictures of my face.
And then he made me start laughing. I just can't take myself seriously when I'm posing in front of him.
So laughing? Kind of me.
And here's a necklace that is also undeniably me. Just a little different. Colourful, but understated. Slightly funky, but doesn't really stand out. I think it is so beautiful.
So, I guess that's my style. It's certainly undeniably me.
