Here's my thing: I'm a dress girl. A skirt girl, too.
I much prefer skirts and dresses to pants and shorts. I was not blessed with long legs (hey, I’ll survive), but my mom was kind enough to pass along her small frame and waist size, which works with dresses and skirts - cinched and fitted. Yet two years ago, I realized that somewhere along the way of being a mother of three, and in and out of maternity clothes and post-partum clothes and I-don't-care-clothes, it was time to redo my look, to try new things and stay within my budget. So, I casually mentioned this to Janel over coffee. Her reply was simple: “So, what’s stopping you?”
True to form, she had already taken notice of my style and shared what she liked about it. Starting with my closet, we rediscovered pieces that I loved. Janel showed me that with the right length of skirt and the right shape, dresses and skirts can always be a part of my everyday life. I can still sit on the floor, create fun art projects, do a puzzle and kick a soccer ball.
Janel gave me the confidence to try new things, to step out of my comfort zone and to have fun with what I already love. I still love dresses and think they are overlooked by many of us. I’m not sure why because, honestly, dresses look great on all body types…so ladies, tell me: what’s stopping you?
