The Power of Fashion

February 8, 2016

You know those outfits that make you excited to go somewhere just because you want to leave the house in them? This is one of those for me. The power of fashion is that it can help motivate, put a smile on your face, and give you confidence when you need it. I love that about it. I’ve been resisting the urge to wear this blouse (only $19!) with pretty much everything I own: flare jeans, under jumpers, with other skirts. You name it. The bell sleeves just get me. Also, I should mention that OK weather has been nuts lately. We had a couple days with highs in the mid to upper 60s, so you better believe I broke out my slit front skirt while I had the chance. I mean, how could I not?

Today starts Russ and my IVF journey (see my infertility post here). I go in for uterine mapping, whatever that is. If I am blissfully unaware at least I can’t freak out about it in advance, right? I digress…I need a power outfit for sure. Maybe two. A sweet friend gave me a necklace engraved with the word “hope”, and it brought me to tears. It was so representative of this journey and the way we have been loved through every step. On the good days, I have so much hope in the One who holds our future. You better believe I have my necklace on today.

    You are so strong! I can’t imagine what you’re going through & I’m sending my thoughts your way. On a more superficial note, the 70’s vibe of your outfit is so on point!
