Well, I got the bigest compliment I ever got on this side of 4o at work a couple of weeks ago, when some friends had said that I looked like a model and I truly took it to heart. If people who knows me since way beyond the BP though this, I truly had push up my big girls panties and move on.
So I started with looking kindly upon myself when I looked in the mirror, cleaned out more than 2/3 of my closets (and have done some more ever since), away with old and badly fitting things, stuff I could not fathom why I bought in the first place and then - started over. Fun - huh? Best thing is that The DH encourages me So far tops, cause my fav store DEA/Axelssons (Swedish with no online store) have their summer sale, so there is no skinny/slim trousers to be had and they are the type that I look the best in (and wide, flat fronted ones as well). So I bought some from a mail order store in the same size as the ones I got from DEA and whatdoyouknow - I couldn't get them over my hips Why oh why? So back they go, but the tops are nice and get to stay in my wardrobe.
If anyone wonder I have decided to stay with black, grey, cream and a (very) occasional dark blue and spruce it up with scarves
Yeah I know, it doesn't sound like fun, but patterns of any kind have never been my thing. I even have to force myself to use some chunky costume jewelry, even though my inner goldsmith self screams NOOOOOO. To be honest, I only own a antique amber necklace and some earrings LOL.
Ha, I have even started to clear out the small walk in closet in Sam's room from toys, Lego and whatnot that have been accumulating over the years. I do have my clothes in there, but I plan to remodel it to looks nice and functional too.
Oops, i think I feel the need to clear out knitted dresses and more kiddy stuff. A bit later in the fall, we (the kids and me) are going to try our hands at car-boot sales -
Hopefully DEA soon will put the fall stuff in their stores, so I can find som great pants.
