Day 8: I am continuing the challenge, of course. I got my 5 compliments within the first 2 days but I thought it was neat keeping track of everything so I'll continue. :) Today, I have a sick child so, unfortunately, I am not going anywhere. However, my daughter and I both went for hair cuts yesterday. She got a fun one and I got more extreme layers in my hair so it flows better instead of forming a triangle on my head b/c who wants a triangle head? The shirt I am wearing came from TJMaxx back in November or so. The pants came from there too at the same time, however, they were dark brown. Yessterday I used RIT Color Remover and it lightened it up enough that it matches my chroma card now. YAY! :) Oh! Maybe tomorrow I'll take a picture WITH the chroma card so you can see what it was. So, here are my newly lightened pants and my new haircut! :)
Day 9: I am excited because even if Collin is sick I will be taking Ryanne to dance so I am going out in public. haha! Yeah, I'm a little weird now. I just love that I know how to dress now and I don't look frumpy. I just want to walk around and yell, "I'm not frumpy!!!" haha! But, since I am a 2 and don't really want to yell and have people stare at me that way, I'll just go with walking around and happy because I feel confident in the way I look. :)
Yay! Today's outfit consists of things I have worn before but they are put together with different things making a new outfit. I am wearing my $2 shirt from Salvation Army, my khakis from TJMaxx and the scarf I picked up at Walmart for $5. I didn't wash my hair today so the scarf is in my hair. Otherwise, it could be fun as a loose belt today too. :)
Day 10: This outfit, I didn't feel very confident in. I think it was the combination with those pants. My gray shoes are a pewter gray so they are very light and these gray pants are a darker gray so they just felt funny together. Not sure. Anyways, this was my outfit for day 10.
Day 11: I really like this outfit. They are the first colored pants I bought that aren't the neutral blue jeans, black or brown/khaki colors. They are GREEN!! Ack! haha! But, I really like them. They are also a fine corduroy so they are really soft and I cannot stop rubbing them. I may look sort of funny walking around in public rubbing my leg. I'll have to resist. haha! I googled them and to buy them new, Cambio Jeans Sharon, they are $158. Oh my heck! Why would someone spend so much on a pair of pants? Oh well, keep spending and then donate to Goodwill so I can purchase later. :) The shirt is also new, it is GAP. Together, I spent $4.50 on the two of them. Oh yeah! I love thrift stores and have no idea why people would go anywhere else. They are even easier to shop at now that I know what I am supposed to wear. It is awesome! :)
I took a couple of pics with this outfit. One with the scarf as a cowl neck. I didn't like that. One with no scarf. It looked too boring. So, I finally took one as an infinity scarf. Love! Sorry the color is so yellow. Not sure what happened there. ;)
Day 13: I love dressing up for church now! :) So fun! Today I wore a ruffled shirt. Can you believe that? Me with ruffles? Yeah, I thought it was crazy too but I love it!! It's blue with lace and t-shirt ruffles.I got it from Goodwill for $3 and, after Googling, it's a Kohl's shirt that normally sells for $20. The sweater was originally a light purple but I dipped it in some gray dye and darkened it up a little bit, just enough for me to feel comfortable in it. LOVE IT!! It's also a Goodwill find that normally sells for about $20 and I paid $3. I am also wearing a flower in my hair today. I love the flower look. It really softens up the whole look and it sort of brought in the gray from my skirt to complete the blended look. This is also second day hair so the flower helped to hide that little issue. LOL! :)
Day 14: Just want to say that Mondays are tough. The days start early with speech and occupational therapies so this is day 3 hair for me. I don't normally go this long without washing it. LOL! So, it's a bit rough. I am trying to learn how to though because I hear people say they love day 2 and 3 hair so I am going to see if I can figure out how to do that. I have Old Navy Gauchos on! Woot! I really love the way gauchos look so I was excited to find these. This is the same t-shirt I've had for a little while. I think I was pictured with it before. Anyways, here's my outfit.
I have no been dressing my truth for 2 weeks. I cannot believe it or how great I feel. My husband comments about the increase in confidence he has seen in me too. I love knowing how to dress and being able to feel confident in myself.
