Trying to stay stylish in my 10th week!
With my ever changing body and bloat issues it would be easy to give up and say pass the spandex, but I feel it is important for my psyche to be able to look in the mirror and still like what I see.
Being a dancer my whole life I learned the way you dress truly shapes who you are. Clothes effect your energy level, attitude, personality, and confidence. I remember my ballet teacher Elizabeth Huebner, a principle ballerina from Joffrey Ballet telling us pupils you need to dress the part of a ballerina in class as you would on stage and by doing so will dance the part, as well as to your full potential. This reminds me of Shakespeare's famous quote, "All the World's a stage and all men and women merely players". I don't know about you but I would rather put on a pretty dress and play the part of an up beat positive girl than a sad girl in sweats. The lazy down beat girl is only played at home where loved ones hopefully won't judge and love her unconditionally. ;)
