This morning I reached into the back of my warm weather attire clothes stash and pulled out a dress. As you do with dresses I put it on. I enjoyed how it easily went on and didn’t cling. I felt comfortable and hoped I looked stylish. I honestly didn’t give it much thought.
As I was getting W into the car to head to school I realized once we left the house we were going to be gone for most of the day. There was a bit of panic. I was stuck in this dress. What if I started to regret putting it on? Nothing to do but embrace the opportunity to be dressed in.
I walked around to the driver’s side of the car and glanced at my reflection. Oh man. I hadn’t even looked at myself in a mirror before I left the house. I was going by how the dress made me FEEL. So maybe it wasn’t the most flattering, but I certainly didn’t think that when I turned my iPhone around to take a photo.
You know what I thought? “Hey lady! Looking good!”
Of course minutes later I felt insecure and gigantic, but I just turned up the radio and W and I sang the rest of the way to school.
