Taking Care of Me

One of the best things I have done for myself has been to join a style group. Although I’ll never be a truly fashionable woman the Busbee Style Hive has helped me find my style.

I always knew what it was. I just never knew how to fit my lifestyle to my wardrobe. I wanted a classic style, but didn’t know how to achieve it without looking out of place in my environment.

Just by adding plain tanks and tees and hats or sunglasses to my wardrobe, I was able to achieve the balance I was looking for.

My hair cut is one I have had on and off most of my adult life, with and without bangs. I am glad I had no bangs during the lockdown as it looked nicer throughout the months we weren’t able to get it cut.

In January I had it cut and dyed.
I think this is right before the lockdown. I was going to get it done, but everything shut down.
This is before I was able to color again. The grays hid well sometimes.

The bob/blunt cut will be my go to hair style for years to come. Unless I decide to do a pixie. I’m relieved I didn’t do a pixie. It wouldn’t have looked good as it grew out without help.

Joining the Bees has been helpful. I am mindful when I purchase clothes of how I will wear them. I have jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses and tees in my wardrobe. I am bagging up clothes that don’t fit the style I want. I have been neglecting my accessories though I have some, so I will be starting to use what I have.

One of my favorite things is to shop my own closet. I find a celebrity look and try to recreate from what I have.

This is a Jennifer Aniston style dupe. I am not using the image I copied since I don’t have the rights, but it’s out there on Pinterest and Google if her filling her gas tank.

Pick celebrities whom you admire their style and try to duplicate it. I have a more casual vibe, so that’s what I look for. Audrey Hepburn, Jennifer Aniston, Diane Keaton all come to mind when I think classic or my style. There are others so when I see something I note it.

I feel more confident since I am dressing for me. Even when I put on a graphic tee, I am mindful of my style or my personality.

Sometimes you just have to have fun with it. So I am going through all my tees and getting rid of any that I don’t feel happy in and that are too big. Before I wouldn’t have cared, but now… I want to look good no matter what I am wearing.

Though this might not stop my depression or anxiety, it won’t contribute to it any longer as I am being more mindful of this area. This along with exercise is contributing to my overall health even when my mind is attacking.

My theory is if I look better, hopefully I’ll feel better. It doesn’t always work, but I am trying. I get up everyday, exercise and get dressed even if we have nowhere to go.

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
