Everyone who knows me knows that I don't really have a lot of style. I guess casual is a style. I'm not the hoodie and team ball cap wearing slob, nor am I always dressed up. I just am somewhere in the middle. And that has worked for me, both in Virginia and North Dakota. But, here I am in Boston and I'm looking for a job. And, I am totally styleless and underdressed. It is difficult for me. We went to a lovely Cambridge spot for brunch last weekend and I wore capris and a top that I'd wear to brunch anywhere. And I felt sloppy. Most of the women were wearing cute dresses and sandals. People just dress up more here than I am used to.
I've been looking online for my style. It is not easy. My body doesn't afford me the luxury of just any style. I don't want to look and feel frumpy. I want to feel good about what I wear. I'm just not sure how to do it.
I have the day to myself tomorrow and am planning a shopping trip. I am hopeful that I can find a few pieces that work living here. I did get a couple interview outfits at Macy's before leaving North Dakota and I think they are a great start. I hope to build on them.
I never realized how much clothes made a difference to me. I've just been happy with clothes that fit and look okay. I want more. I want to look good and feel good in the clothes I own. I'll get there. It may be slow, but I'll get there!
