You ever watch the show “What Not to Wear?”
Well, you know the part of the show where the rip open the poor misguided soul’s closet and they see a SEA OF BLACK and Clinton and Stacy call out “What are you hiding from with all this black?!”
Sigh…well…that is kinda how I’ve felt this past year. The other day it hit me in the face when I walked by my mirror in my home and accidentally looked into it and saw this woman draped in black looking back at me.
“Umm, isn’t it summer Marion?? I mean, isn’t it…like…90 degrees outside right now? Whatcha doing woman?!”
And I just couldn’t hide from the fact that my fashion/style/my closet…ALL of it was a direct reflection of my heart and soul over this past year. And this realization just fascinated me more than anything…
The whites + yellows + even the form fitting clothes were kinda shoved to the back of my closet in favor of blacks + browns + baggy goodness.
But you know what?? It’s A-OK!! 🙂 The psych in me truly believes that we reflect on the outside how we feel on the inside…and that means paying attention to how we dress + our posture + even our tone of how we speak to people! And instead of denying how we feel…we can shine a light on what clothes we are reaching for each morning in the closet and ask ourselves “Is this reflective of how I FEEL? How come?”
And for this simple fact alone…I love fashion. It is self expression personified.
And yes, Cooper’s soccer uniform kinda steals the show here of which I approve with all my heart! LOL!
