Happy Humpday and Merry Christmas. OK maybe it’s not still Christmas but I did see a post on Facebook that if the snow was here to stay we may as well put the tree back up. At least with a fun tree all decorated we might feel better about the crappy weather. Know what else makes one feel better? Cute Denim Dungaree Dress from H&M.
Denim Dungaree Dress from H&M
So let’s do some crazy talk today, and start with the outfit. I know that is a totally crazy twist for me. I found this awesome Denim Dungaree Dress at H&M when I was in Vancouver. On sale too. Initially I looked at it and thought should I really wear this, am I too old? And then I went Darn it Linda if you like it buy it. I thought it would be perfect for music festivals this summer.
Well Saturday I was attending a women’s only Craft Beer event ( more on that soon I promise) and well, hello how perfect was this. I actually had three people come up during the day and compliment me on my look. So I guess this is a winner. I added my favourite long sleeve tee from Old Navy, tights and fun boots from Giant Tiger. My moto jacket was warm enough for the car ride to the hall.
Lessons learned on what women wear
I actually was quite angry with myself about this dungaree dress. I mean honestly how dare I even question what I liked and what I wanted. Where actually did the thought come from. I once wrote a post about Woman over 50 and what they should or should not wear. I thought I was progressive enough to be comfortable in my own skin. Bold enough to wear what I liked. Strong enough to wear what I wanted. Yet standing in a store surrounded by twenty somethings I suddenly doubted me.
It’s a valuable lesson, no matter how tough, or strong or even smart we are we can still have doubt. We can still have those questioning moments where we wonder yes or no. The lesson is allow those thoughts to hit, it is ok to question, it is not however Ok to be dictated to by those questions. If it feels good to you then it has to be OK.
My doubt actually left me as soon as I walked out of the store. I knew I had made the right choice and the right decision for me. Yes I am 50 but I still can wear a denim dungaree dress if I want to.
