One of my goals/resolutions for 2021 was to be more thankful and have more gratitude. I am not sure if it is a human flaw that we remember and focus on the negative aspects instead of the positives. There have been times when I have made a post, and I can get a hundred comments telling me that they love the post and one comment that says something negative. Do you think that I focus on the hundred comments or the one?
Thankfully, I can shake off negativity fairly fast, but not before I go down the rabbit hole for a little while. Don’t get me wrong; I don’t ever want anyone to comment something positive or say that they like my outfit if they don’t. But, I also don’t understand why some people seem to go out of their way to be hurtful or personal. I am EXTREMELY grateful that my “gurls” are the best! All of you are so sweet, and you even take the time to talk to each other if someone leaves a comment or asks a question, and I never want to take that for granted.
When I saw this sweatshirt with the gratitude wording, I knew that I HAD to have it. I love having a positive attitude and wearing a positive message on my chest. This serves as a reminder for myself and those I meet, never to take anything for granted.
This Gratitude sweatshirt is a 50-50 blend of polyester and cotton and is machine washable. I’ve not washed it yet, so I can’t say if it shrinks or fades. I ordered a large size, which I usually order in a sweatshirt because I want them to fit me loosely and a little on the oversized side.
Here is another post where I wore a very similar sweatshirt, and it has another positive message that we need to see more.
From this photo, you can see how long the sweatshirt is in the back and where it strikes me. I am 5’6″ tall, and the top hit me a hip length.
Since this is a great photo of my white leather ankle boots by Marc Fisher, let me tell you a little about them. This is a modern look that is steeped in history. I am sure most of us have seen the white boot craze that was around in the 60s, and you might have even owned a pair of them yourself. I don’t remember having a pair, but I don’t remember much from that time again. The pointy toe design is one that I love, and so is a chunky heel. The shaft of this boot is higher, which has been the trend for ankle boots this year. I sized up in these boots and ordered a 9 1/2 instead of my usual size nine. When I bought these boots, they were on sale, but that sale has ended. I’ll try to find some similar boots in different price ranges since these are pretty pricey.
Look at the chewed hem on these jeans! I love this look, and the white boots really show off the distressed look. These jeans fit like a glove, and I find them very flattering. I ordered my normal size 30 in these jeans, but the website suggests sizing up one size. However, the size 31 was sold out, so I took a chance and ordered them anyway. They are very snug, and I probably would be more comfortable in the 31s. So, I either need to lose some weight or send these back. BUT, I love how these look!!!
I didn’t add any jewelry to today’s look because… I forgot! Lol! I was talking to my sister while I was getting dressed, and I had my AirPods in (look at the photos closely) and just forgot. It was much later when I realized that I hadn’t added earrings, and I was too lazy to retake the photos.
But, I did add a layer to my look. I’ve had this black and white check button-up shirt for years, and I decided to take my own advice about creating visual interest by adding layers. I have to admit; I don’t hate how the shirt looks with the sweatshirt. I’ll see if I can find some similar ones for you.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I think that they are wrong. The difference in these two photos is priceless to me. No needles, no fillers, only great skincare.
