My Style/ Emotional Eating/ It's a Good Day

Friday, October 11, 2019

Except in high school, I've always loved long skirts and fun colors and such. When I joined the Air Force I got so used to wearing camo pajamas (that i what it felt like!!) every day that I kinda gave up on having a normal wardrobe. I worked such long hours, I ended up not having much of a civilian wardrobe. My neighbor that shared a wall with me and I would sit on the front porch in our brown shirts, camo pants and black socks and chat, sometimes boots still on.

It may seem weird to some people, the way that I want to dress now, but I love colorful, fun, playful clothes now. I can't wear them yet as none that I have found come in my size (and I'm not good enough at sewing yet to make my own) and I think I would not look good in the clothes I like just yet. Some of the style I like are kind of 1920's (NOT flapper girl) and 1950's. I love the vintage look. DH said if I made my wardrobe like that, I would have to make him some suits to go with it so we could go out in style together. I never expected that, but I started a whole pinterest board just for making him clothes to match my 20's and 50's styles. The other style I like is called Mori Girl. That is the one that they say is looking like you live in a fairy forest. I love it. It's so fun and whimsical! From the fun shoes (I won't wear high heels, 2 inches is the most I"ll wear!) and skirts, to the decorations and extra layers and ruffles, I love it!! Here are some examples:

And those are just some of the basic styles. Perhaps I'm weird for loving it so much. Perhaps I'll try it on and decide it looks silly on me. Or perhaps I'll fall in love with it and not care what anyone else thinks as long as I'm happy with what I'm wearing and how I feel! Who knows?

Today is a good day to have a good day! And I'm going to, despite being up for so long tonight. When I have a negative thought, I'll try to put a positive spin on it, or write something I'm grateful for in my notebook. Gratitude is a great way to turn around your attitude! I'll probably nap after the kids leave for school, I thing DH took tomorrow off.

I've been emotional eating for three days now. I can't figure out the why, but it has to stop! I'm going to be more mindful today, drink more water and flavored waters, and try my best to take time to sit down and write out my emotions to see if I can't find what triggered this. I think I have an inkling of an idea, but it's not a major thing, so why would it affect me this much? The mind can be a strange thing. So, I think I need to look at it from a different angle, and see what feeling come out while I'm free writing about my emotions.

Okay, going to shower and go to bed, I'm finally starting to feel a little sleepy and I think a nice shower wil help.

Goodnight!! emoticon

    I ran across a website: https://www.modcloth.com/ where you might find a few items with which to get started, and this place is size-inclusive. On the regular pages, the prices are real-world, and may be off-putting, but go to the outlet page, and the prices are just higher than thrift or garage sale prices. It'd be a fun place to window-shop, anyway, when you have some time, but if you're shopping, you could give the outlet page a try. I don't work for them, and am not advertising, but I see your photos, and know I've seen similar pieces and outfits on Mod Cloth. Good luck and happy hunting! :-)

    I feel your pain with the insomnia! I was in bed 5 hours but only slept 3 or 4 tops. Finally got up. I have boot camp in 30 min then work, then home early to take hubby to hospital for eye surgery. After we have a hockey game. Won't get home until 10:30 tonight. Then have to get up tomorrow at 6 for an out of town 5 km run. Sunday have 10 people coming for Thanksgiving. I am exhausted thinking about it! Wish I could sleep all day - not that I would if I went to bed anyways - lol! I hope that your weekend goes better than mine!
