Taking photos helps me see myself better than mirrors do and I am learning, though slowly, to stop drowning myself in clothes that are too big. I am also realising that I am going to have to get some tops tailored to fit better because I have to buy XL to fit my bust but then it is usually too baggy elsewhere. It's with tee shirts that this is the most challenging because they are not actually something one takes for tailoring and yet I love a long sleeved and colourful tee shirt. Heck I even love short sleeved ones. I wear them a lot but do have troubles with fit. I can get them, I prefer styles that are a bit fitted and not just a big square.
So, I realise that my beloved colourful hoodie and the tee shirt I am wearing underneath are a bit too big for me. Actually the skirt is a size too big too, but that is more easily disguised by just wearing it lower on my hips. I wear this skirt a lot as it is my favourite style and I love jersey fabric. I would like a whole closet full of these in different colours and prints but I'm not particularly good with sewing stretchy fabric.
The weird blurr in the corner is clearly my goofy cat. I think her tail is caught under my skirt.
Also thanks to my wonderful mother, I had another chance to shower and dress, because she made a lovely dinner on the weekend and invited my son and myself over to assist with the devouring of it. I had an outfit all picked out but it turned out to be too cold to wear it. The shoes are not as dark as they look in this photo. My bare legs were much too cold and I only have opaque black or brown tights so I had to change out of this outfit and that lead to a maxi skirt experiment. I was able to wear thick leggings under the maxi skirt so I was much warmer. It is more of my much loved jersey fabric, which is really like wearing sweatpants only pretending to be more glamourous in a skirt.
And the pixie is growing.... Hooray!
