Arty Slick – Day 30
Today is the last day of Arty Slick and my final photo for this look only seems fitting –
I’m bowling… in an Arty Slick outfit… with bowling shoes….
Do Arty Slicks bowl? Probably not. Do Arty Slicks take knitting classes with their kids? It’s unlikely. Do Arty Slicks carry goats out of their houses that have broken in through the front door? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say no. Do Arty Slicks do any of the things that I do on a daily basis?
I had a lot of fun with this look. It’s an empowering look – bold, in your face and edgy – words most moms would not use to describe themselves. I didn’t feel like a mom in these clothes and that was a very refreshing feeling. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a mom, I just don’t like looking like a mom.
For the first time in a long time, I was dressing for me and not just dressing for practicality. These clothes reminded me that I have thoughts other than how to pack a healthy lunch and what time Kung Fu is. This look reminded me that I am a person alone in this world, on my own adventure and that even though my complete focus is on taking care of three other people, I’m still the star of my own movie.
So for that, Arty Slick, I thank you.
