Outfit of the Day - September 10

Today's outfit, dress donated to me by my hot/fashionable sister:



My posture looks really weird in this picture, like I'm totally stiff and leaning back or something. Weird.

I am actually wearing 3-inch heels in this picture!! Go me! I'm not sure I will make the effort to continue this trend. I'm kind of a basics/natural girl, and high heels are pretty unnatural for your posture/joints/etc. I think they are hot though (not these specific ones necessarily).

(Refer to the previous post for the rules before you comment.)

The color looks good on you! Neutral is for carpets and maybe couches. Not dresses!

I usually dress very neutrally. I might get really daring and mix up khaki, white, and gray, ha ha. I am trying to go all out on color!

You could never be more frumpy than me. I wear: dark-colored jeans and three-quarter length black shirts. THAT IS IT. I'm not exaggerating. I don't even own anything except jeans and black shirts. Three pairs of jeans, four black shirts. The end.

And I own two pairs of shoes - black flip-flops, which I wear almost always, and these recycled hemp & wool shoes, which were a gift, which I wear when it's raining, even though they are WOOL and thus, stupid for rain.

I would not be caught dead in high heels, or lipstick, or a skirt. I think it's fine for others - I just cannot pull it off. I can't express how excruciating it was for me to dress up for church back in the day. I considered it a very serious personal trial and that I was very committed to showing my obedience to God by martyring myself in such a way. :)

You, on the other hand, look fantastic! Seriously, you look great. I admire people who wear color.

Thanks :-D

I *LOVE* skirts/dresses. LOVE. (I would prefer them without nylons, but I won't go to work/church without nylons.)

I don't know how to wear lipstick. I love to kiss my kids every second of the day, plus I like to eat/drink constantly, plus I bite it off. So that has always been a no-go for me too!

I can imagine what suffering church must have caused!

It's funny, because since we've moved to NorCal I've been feeling impatient with myself about how I dress and wondering if I should change my style. But I know that's just because I appear so-o-o-o mainstream in the midst of these authentically hippie families at my kids'/Jeremy's school. I feel like I won't be accepted until I'm wearing buckskin leather than I tanned myself from an animal I shot with my own homemade arrow or something. Plus a paisley hemp tank top so I can show off my underarm hair, and I need some dreadlocks and more tattoos, and I definitely need to surround myself in a cloud of cannabis smoke. THEN I'll look like I belong around here, and maybe make some friends. :)

It's interesting that moving made you think about changing. I feel kind of the same -- like my surroundings make a difference in what I want. My goal is to make all decisions with conscious intention (a phrase obviously stolen from you), with no regard to surroundings or society. It's a hard goal!!
