Good afternoon (I need a an adjective to describe all you lovely people who take the time to read my blog, all the good one have been taken) I was driving home from work last night and a question, no more like a feeling from within came bubbling up to the surface. As I pondered the thoughts swirling in my head I decided that I can’t be alone in feeling this way, there are probably lots of women who are struggling with the same thing. So my question to you is how do you maintain the chic? How do you day after day go through the motions of putting your best foot, hand and face forward to the world? I wear a lot of hats, a whole lot of them, I am a wife, mother, minister, daughter, sister, friend, employee, blogger, advocate, plus a few more…most of them I enjoy wearing on a daily basis however as much as I love my hats, they can be draining to the spirit at times. The many roles I play are attached to situations and circumstances that often bring joy and happiness but oftentimes they bring sadness, frustration and disappointment because of things beyong my control. During those times it is so hard to care about what matches with this or how I should wear that, when those times occur I can barely manage to get dressed much less be concerned about how I look or who may see me today.
Now I know that taking care of self is important regardless of what may be going on in one’s life however what do you to get the juices flowing in the right direction when the furthest thing from your mind is worrying about how ragged your cuticles are, your eyebrows need some serious attention (like mine do now, lol) and although people seek your counsel for fashion advice right now you ask your self why because the most fashionable thing you have worn is a bathrobe in days? I know I cannot be the only one who has expericenced this, I am not the only one who has a boat load of responsibility on her shoulders and needs encouragement from the sisterhood of stylish women who have weathered the storm fashionably??. Talk to me, let’s discuss how you get through…how you get your pretty on when you just ain’t feeling it.
