It’s Wednesday! I share my outfits from the week with The Pleated Poppy’s What I Wore Wednesday.
I pair my outfits with inspirational photos. Read more about that here.
I had a little epiphany about how I dressed after Allume last year when I started posting all these outfit and inspirational pictures.
I work from home most days and before then, it didn’t seem worth it to dress up on days I’d be home alone. In fact, for all of these outfits except one you see here, only a handful of people actually saw me. More people will see these outfits online than they will in person.
Even though I’m no fashionista, I love putting outfits together and I always have. I’ll never forget trying to find the EXACT purple slouch socks to wear in middle school. It matters to me. But somewhere along the line I convinced myself I was dressing just for others and I wasn’t worth putting in the effort.
I wish I could remember who said and in what context but they said dressing up even when you’re home alone is worth it because YOU are worth it.
Let me say it out loud I’M worth it. YOU are worth it. If you like clothes and dressing yourself up then by golly, do it and do it for YOU. God made all these beautiful colors and patterns for us to enjoy so let’s do it and without any guilt! When you understand WHY you’re enjoying it and it’s pointing us back to the Creator, it makes all the difference!
