Over the last year or so I've noticed that my clothing has started to change... well maybe even further back than that... but recently it has become more deliberate on my part. Back in the day I would just throw on a t-shirt and shorts and not really worry too much about my actual appearance. Then we brought the boys home, and I realized that there were times and places people were actually watching my family and I needed to do a better job representing my family and even the vocations of motherhood/homeschooling/adoption.
And now, well, it's sort of strange. I now actually see myself as a mom (that has taken a while), and the way I look and think about myself has changed. Shorts are fine for working around the house, or an errand where I probably won't get out of the car... but I've found myself now not wanting to be seen in public with shorts on (very often). It has nothing to do with my figure or anything like that, it has more to do with a since of modesty that is more pronounced than it was before. Now, don't get me wrong, I've never been one to fall on the immodest side. I don't care for showing skin... but this is different. This is more of, I'm a grown-up with grown-up things to do, and shorts are for kids or for working.
Why am I even posting about this? Um, I guess because I thought it was interesting to me to actually put two and two together on my recent clothes choices. Have any of you ladies noticed a change in how you perceive yourself and changes to wardrobe because of it? Or MAYBE it is the lack of sleep talking :-).
