Making Me Happy This Week – 3/4/2018

20180226-2018-02-26 20.19.39_blog

Late edition.  Because work has been so busy that I haven’t had time to breathe.  After work and on weekends I just want to lay around on the couch!

Here’s what made me happy last week:

  • Weeknight concert date at Belly Up to see Snarky Puppy.  I enjoyed it for the first hour.  It made me happy to hear good music and go out with Todd.  But I wore too warm clothes for the venue and was really uncomfortable in the second hour.  And we found out that we’re much too old to enjoy general admission, LOL.  All that standing for two hours and getting bumped by people with body odor and I was over it.  But I was glad to to with Todd because it’s one of his favorite bands!  And who doesn’t love a disco ball and sparkle lights.20180226-2018-02-26 19.52.05_blog20180226-2018-02-26 20.26.45_blog
  • This shower cap.  Yes, it seems a bit pricey for a shower cap, but it’s lined with terry cloth and keeps your hair COMPLETELY DRY when you shower, thus guaranteeing you don’t have to restyle your hair.  I only wash my hair twice a week so I needed this awesome shower cap!
  • We had a pizza & cake party at work to celebrate January to March birthdays and I was one of the ones celebrated.  It feels special to take time out at lunch to enjoy the celebration with work friends and build comraderie.  I thought it was special and fun!20180227-2018-02-27 12.04.55_blog
  • This cute face and two-toned nose!20180227-2018-02-27 21.47.50_blog
  • Todd bought samosas and Chinese bakery items for his book club movie watching at lunch with his work friends.  He is my hero for making daily life fun.  I’m only 1/3 as much fun without him in my life!  He makes everyday fun and special.20180228-2018-02-28 11.36.58_blog
  • I finished my 14th month of putting together outfits and tracking what I wore in my Stylebook app on my phone! 20180228-2018-02-28 17.42.16_blog
  • Trying out a new-to-us burger place called Grub.  And my yellow striped cardigan.  20180303-2018-03-03 12.12.41_blog
  • New coffee place next to hamburger place called Mostra.20180303-2018-03-03 12.14.54_blog
  • Black Panther movie!  We enjoyed every second of it!  And stayed for the looooooong credits to see the extra scene at the very end.  Highly recommend that you see this movie in the theater!20180304-2018-03-04 09.17.51_blog
  • Church on Sunday with a great message and communion.20180304-2018-03-04 11.01.58_blog
  • Indian lunch at Curry And More with Todd, my favorite eating partner.20180304-2018-03-04 12.22.39_blog
  • Spring colors in my wardrobe.  In particular this pair of pink jeans I scored for $15 at Old Navy.  If you buy it, size up one size because the legs are tiiiiiiiight! 20180304-2018-03-04 16.41.13_blog
  • I posted this on my Instagram account.  I would like to share with you here too.  And if you want to follow my outfit posts on Instagram, my private account for that is @listgirlwears.  I will approve you.  Here’s today’s outfit: Comfy dress and cardigan for church, lunch, and returning stuff at the mall. Today I have a little pep talk for you, about returning clothes to the stores, and about women’s clothes sizing. Never be afraid to return clothes that don’t fit right or aren’t flattering. One of the things I’ve learned on this fashion journey is that if a piece of clothing doesn’t fit you correctly, or is unflattering, or is annoying or uncomfortable in some way, then you won’t wear it. It will sit in your closet and be a waste of money. Wouldn’t you rather have a closet full of clothes you love to wear? Don’t settle! You deserve clothing that fit your CURRENT body well and flatters you. Don’t wait until you lose weight to buy clothes. You deserve to dress your body well today, the way you are. If you don’t love something, return it. Also, clothing sizes are ARBITRARY. Never let your clothing size dictate how you feel about yourself. See my dress? It’s a Large. I’m not normally a Large. Do I feel bad about wearing a size L dress. NO. Does it look flattering on me? YES. I wear tops from XS to L. I wear pants from size 4 to size 10. Sizing is inconsistent between brands and even in the same brand. Buy the size that fits and flatters. Who cares what size it is?! #ootd #fashionover40 #fashionphilosophy #lookgoodfeelgood20180304-2018-03-04 10.18.56-2_blog
