To help give myself some confidence, I put together an outfit that was comfortable with a bit of kick. Thankfully, the church office is a casual workplace (Pastor's usual "uniform" is jeans and a plaid shirt with the sleeves rolled up), so jeans and cowgirl boots were perfect. There's just something about cowgirl boots that lend confidence!
(My apologies for the not-so-great mirror shots. The lighting in my room isn't good this time of year, and I just can't find anything the correct height on which to prop up my camera in order to use the timer.)
Outfit details: Xhileration jacket-thingy - thrifted; Gap tee - thrifted;
(can't remember which pair) jeans - most likely thrifted; Mossimo boots - Target.
Ring - thrifted
Even though this jacket-thing (what IS it, anyway?!) is 100% polyester, I could not bring myself to purge it from my closet. Since it's a layering piece, I can easily wear a cotton tee underneath and take it off when it raises my temperature too much. The butterflies are simply too pretty and the colors too delightful, more than making up for being a bad choice of fabric for a woman of my age. How can I resist a polyester butterfly-covered, butterfly-wing-sleeved, navy-with-pops-of-poppy jacket-wrap-doohicky? I can't!
