clothes make the woman

The lady of the couple that I’m staying with is of the firm belief that when entering a new stage of your life mentally/emotionally you also need a physical representation of that change.
As well as the fact that I needed some clothes fit for wandering around in society that didn’t look like I’d slept in them for weeks on end. (not that I actually slept in my wandering around clothes but they’re decidedly the worse for wear)

She also likes shoes. đŸ˜€
So I have a few new tees, bright girly soft tees. A few pairs of inexpensive matching, what she calls “single season”, flip flops.
AND, a couple pairs of nice multi-season wedge sandals (also in flip flop styling). They’re not terribly expensive but they’re more expensive than I would have been comfortable spending; they’re nice!!! Oh so comfy!

They make me feel new, and they’re a constant reminder that I’m somewhere new in my life. That gives me confidence.

Add a couple pairs of jean shorts from a company that actually makes clothes that fit me and a new pair of jeans (from the same company that I got the ones that have been worn to extinction) and I’m set!

    Remember what Fernando (Billy Crystal from SNL) says, “It’s not how you feel, it’s how you look. And you look mahvelous dahling!”
