You know when you’re wearing something that really feels like you. You stand up straighter, walk with confidence and a secret smile, and you don’t want to take it off the minute you walk in the door. And it might not be a special evening dress or designer suit.
It might be a cotton hippie blouse or dress, or a favorite wool cardigan with velvet trim, or the best fitting jeans you’ve ever owned. You know it when you feel it. For me, it’s often casual but expressive clothing. Not just a tee and jeans, but a graphic tee and jeans, and a funky bracelet. I don’t favor formal or even business-style clothes, although I had plenty of years to enjoy them.
Today I am sporting that very same cotton hippie blouse, by Free People and thrifted (similar). It’s not high fashion but it does feel like me, and calls back to my hippie youth. The denim skirt (sim) is an old closet staple, that stands in for jeans when the temperatures rise. And I love the newly thrifted velvet belt (sim), with embroidered butterflies.
