Today is the final day of Wearing my Joy!!
Hypothesis: That by wearing clothes that I love I would focus more on the feeling of Joy rather than on what my body "should" look like.
#1 It was pretty easy for me to get into this challenge. I love clothes and changing up my style so it felt pretty easy to get dressed with Joy in mind. I realized I do this more than I think I do.
But I did notice that by changing my focus to one of Joy, I began to see that there were times I felt I needed to "look more professional" and would pick clothes that fit that part, but saw quickly that I felt uncomfortble and stifled and less free. I challenged my need to "be more professional" by wearing clothes that were work approrpiate but also felt like it had some fun and playfulness as well.
#2 I definetly have my go-to items that I could wear for days on end. I found that to be an exciting realization and donated a lot of clothes and shoes that I wasn't in love with. Some even were brand new items. (gasp!)
Towards the end of this challenge I took myself to my favorite store Mimi and Red and splurged on a few items that I fell in love with.
All in all this experiment was eye opening and definetly brough more joy into how I dress my body. It help me change the focus to feeling good in what I was wearing, as oppossed to the feeling terrible in the pre pregnancy skinny jeans but wearing them just because they were pre pregnancy jeans. My c-section scar thanks me.
