Getting dressed can be stressful. Well, I guess it’s not the putting on of clothes that brings the stress – it’s deciding what to wear. You know what I mean – trying to decide: This shoe or this one? (Ever do the flamingo thing where you pick up one foot and then the other, trying to get a picture of which one is better?) Or you may wonder if the colors or patterns you’ve put on really go together.
I’ve found a little way to make the deciding a bit easier. I step back from the full length mirror and snap a picture on my phone. Even if you can’t take a picture on your phone, if you have a digital camera, that will work just as well. Take a picture of the two things you’re trying to decided on. Like this:
|See Liza? She’s always right there to give her opinion!|
Then once you’ve taken the pictures, look at the first, then the second. I’ve found that seeing it quickly in front of me – going back and forth from the first picture to the second – really gives me an idea of which choice is better.
Freshen up your outfits by taking a (careful) chance. Seeing them like this really helps with the decision making!
See you in church Sunday!
P.S. Which jacket did I choose? The solid black. Too much going on with the other one!
