So Friday night I went out to dinner with a long lost cousin of mine. We reconnected recently which has been nice. She’s a few years younger than I am, married with kids, but we share a bonding belief in family. She understands the angst I have with my brother as she has a similar issue with her sister.
But I got to go out to dinner which was so exciting for me since I don’t go out much these days. Most of my friends are married and who wants a third wheel? So I got dressed up – out of my comfort zone! I bought black faux leather leggings last week at Loft and decided to wear them. I must admit I thought I looked cute. Classy with a white blouse and camel long sweater as the salesgirl recommended. It’s not something I would have styled while I was married, but I pulled it off and loved the feeling of dressing how I feel these days…a little edgy with a little inner sparkle knowing that this is not my usual preppy look. And you know what? I liked it!
While at the restaurant, one that as a family back when I was married we frequented, I saw some old friends which was fun. Who knows if they noticed my ‘new look’ but I felt confident which is all that matters!
I am not holding back anymore. I feel a little like a rebellious teenager with the leggings on! And I know it’s not such a big deal to wear them as they are fashionable now. I may have to get another pair…because shhhh….Janie’s got a huge smile on her face! LOL
Hope you had a great weekend! More to come as I let that inner sparkly girl out to play! Thanks for joining in the fun with me and letting me share!
