I’ve been down you guys. A combination of factors has made me in not such a super mood and also really affected my self esteem. I’ve had to really make an effort to dress well, as what I really feel like doing is wearing my “giving up” pants and tee shirt.
So it was especially uplifting and welcome when I got a compliment from a stranger today. An older gentleman came up to me at the grocery store today and said:
“I just had to cross the store and come say to you that not only are you very pretty, oh no, you are, you are*…but you are also very stylish. That ensemble is just wonderful. And I couldn’t see them across the store, but those earrings are just fabulous! I just thought you should know it is wonderful to see such a pretty girl with such style these days.”
OH MY GOODNESS. I mean, I cannot think of a better compliment, can you?
And here is the outfit he liked so much…
I didn’t even think much of it to be honest!~ I was lacking in accessories and I felt kind of underdressed.
I was going to stop wearing boots until it got closer to Fall, but you know what? It’s cold indoors, y’all!~ And also, I don’t know if you have noticed or not, but I tend to do what I want. And I want to wear boots. So I am.
P.Bitty likes to hang out and get all underfoot and be a blur in pictures and really hassle me, but the second I actually try and let him be in the picture he looks like I just took away his Dingo**. Am I right?
I think we might be required by law to have at least one pair of cowboy boots to reside here in Texas. I have two, so I think I’m safe. But I thrifted them both. If I could have any boots I wanted, I'd want distressed brown leather, the kind you have to oil, with turquoise textured inserts. Maybe Ostrich.
The earrings you could not see from across the store, but are in fact fabulous…
*I made that face you do, you know the one, when you get slightly embarrassed at being called pretty. But you really LIKE being called pretty and also do not want to be rude? That one.
