I hope this has been a good week for everyone. So far, I am actually really enjoying my latest 40 day challenge. If you haven’t heard, I gave up a regular fashion staple for my Lenten resolution, and as a result I’m attempting to keep up posting to hold myself accountable.
So far I’d have to say that the best part about giving up PANTS for Lent is telling people and watching their reactions. I can be kind of silly like that. But also, I’m just enjoying getting to get dressed up again! Observe:
As warm temps continue, I persist in dressing like it’s summer. Apparently. I wore this out night before last after a day of 60-degree weather and could not have felt more splendid. Well, at least not until the sun went down and I had to cover myself up with a cardigan and shiver like it was winter all over again. BUT. It matters not, for it was fun while it lasted.
I think I’ve been in a very Bohemian mood lately with my attire. I favor flowy dresses and big accessories. In fact I really enjoyed dressing up an LBD with colorful jewelry and shoes. Not something I do all that often but now I can’t see why. It works perfectly! It adds just the right amount of flair and really brings attention to detail. I think I’ll be doing more of this from now on.
Lastly, the best part about my Pantsless Party is that getting dressed in skirts and dresses really inspires me to get frilly again and feel pretty. My last couple of days worth of outfits have garnered more compliments than all of my style rut getups as of late. It was something that I didn’t even realized I had missed from doing the project. When you put effort into your outfits, people notice. Even perfect strangers and compliments are really the best gift. I look forward to feeling the love as I go forth with this dressy business. Ahoy!
