3 white blouses

Today I want to talk my Simple Life uniform.

You know, we were all brought up in an age where you had to have :

  • More
  • More
  • More
  • And MORE

If you wore the same article of clothing twice in one week…

  • Shock
  • Horror

You just were not cool.

My, my have things changed in my world.

In my world I wear a uniform. My daily wardrobe consists of a limited number of pieces, the number of which I decide. I’ve dressed this way for many, many years, probably decades, and in this article I want to talk about three items I recently purchased.

Over the last couple of months I have purchased several tops. Well, actually three. and I want to go over them with you, to review them with you, and to give you the idea that perhaps, maybe, maybe you should be wearing a uniform.

There are so many reasons to wear uniform. Here is a video on this very subject.

So let me begin…

I recently purchased this white top from Chico’s.

It is linen. It’s a shirt with the sleeves that are quite long, and I like that idea of them being long, and I’ll explain the reason why in the next little clip.

But it is linen, and I know a lot of women don’t like linen because it wrinkles, but you know what? For me, it’s going to wrinkle anyway, so it sort of lessons the pressure I put on myself to iron it.

I know this picture looks like a mugshot, but you can see what you can do just with a scarf. This is a long scarf, which a subscriber gave to my YouTube channel gave me

Here is a t-shirt style blouse or a top that I just purchased. It’s made of linen, it comes from Chico’s. What caught my attention on this t-shirt is these drop sleeves.

White linen top by Chicos

I purchased this because the sleeves are pretty long and that covers up the stuff I want to cover up, you know all the wobbly stuff that occurs [ the stuff that no matter what amount of exercise you do it does not move ]

I have eliminated a lot of white t-shirts just simply because they need to be discarded. They were worn out.

I have is I’ve also purchased a couple of these blouses and it is from Brooks Brothers. This is a cotton shirt. The sleeves are, as you can see, very, very long. What I like about it are the details and those details are the fact that it’s very good quality. The fine stripes match, The seams are very, very well constructed with seams.

There is a second button along the cuff placard.

And so overall, this is a good quality shirt. I bought two of them because that’s what I do if I find something I like.

I don’t like shopping.

You can also watch a video I created on this topic here

Would you purchase any of these tops/blouses? What is your style?Let me know in the comment box below.

my minimalism makeup

I put together a much video recently. The topic of discussion is my current makeup routine- which actually has changed a wee bit since my last reveal [ sounds important right!]

Here is that video.

BUT 

I want to stress one thing.

This is my routine. It suits me. It makes me FEEL like me. This “ stuff” that I put on my face makes me FEEL good, put together, ready for my world.

BUT

You are you, and you must, stress MUST do what makes you FEEL like you. Wear the makeup that makes you FEEL ready for your world.

  • Layers of makeup. Fine
  • No makeup.Fine

It’s all about

  • FEELING good on the inside.
  • FEELING good on the outside & spreading your joy and happiness.

It’s a double whammy.

the “nothingness challenge”

I don’t know about you but I am always up for a good challenge.

I am all in when it comes to trying something new, something that will widen
my imagination, my normal, and push me to do or try something that
does not come easily or naturally to me… something I have
never experienced before.

What about you?

Last week on my YouTube channel, I dared you to take “The Nothingness Challenge”.

Here is the concept—>

In our world where we are all go, go, go, ALL the time. Some might find
it is difficult to stop and just be. I know I have this issue. We were reared
to “produce” either by our family and/or we were influenced to keep striving in order
to be successful by society.

If you did not push yourself you were deemed lazy.

This is so wrong.

So I created a challenge for myself and since it works I now pass it on to you.

Here is how it goes…

  • Find a quiet place in your home. Even your car will work.
  • Get cozy

And just be.

You read that correctly.

Just be.

Sit in the silence and listen.[ this is not the same as meditation]

  • Listen to the drone of the air conditioner or heater.
  • Listen to the breathing of your pet.
  • Listen to the rain as it falls on the windows.
  • Listen as the fan twirls around.

Just be.

Be still and listen.

You might find that in the beginning that this task is difficult but
keep trying.

Just be, today, tomorrow and each day after that.

You will find this simple task is very invigorating. It will open your eyes
and ears to senses that you might have lost along your way.

The silence can add to your

  • Creativity
  • Peace of mind
  • A real sense of well-being.

It will enable you to slow down and well “smell the roses”.

So today, I dare you.

Take the Nothingness Challenge and by all means, let me know
how you get on.
