Motherhood and Guilt
I am having a hard time pulling together a wardrobe. I never thought I would feel so guilty about buying things that I need. The last time I spent serious money on clothes/accessories I was in college....almost 4 years ago. I was single, making pretty good money, and didn't even think of saving a dime. Today things a little different, I am married, a mom, and saving like mad for a down payment. Working from home also makes it easy to wear yoga pants and a zip-up hoodie every day of the week, and I'm having a hard time justifying using future "house" money for dark wash jeans that no one will ever see.
But then I think about Sela. I don't want her to feel that I didn't care enough about myself to throw on a decent pair of jeans or own a dress that I really, really loved. I don't want her to feel guilty about things that she needs, or wants, for that matter. I want her to feel confident, strong, and beautiful. I hope I can teach her by example to always be her best self.
In addition to the guilt, I am also having a hopeless time pulling together a decent outfit.... either it's been a little too long or internet shopping isn't for me. So I snagged these lovely ladies to use as inspiration....aren't they stunning?
