You like me! Of course, you probably don't know me very well.

Stockholm, Day 1

April 7th, 2010 by biscuit

One of my very favoritest bloggers, Temerity Jane, recently started a project called ‘Stockholming Myself‘. It’s genius.

In her words:

The theory behind Stockholming Myself, something I made up that is composed of absolutely zero science, is that if I take the dreaded full-length body shot picture every single day, I will either notice gradual change from my diet & exercise plan or, failing that, will learn to like what I’ve got based on continual, unrelenting exposure.

For me it’s slightly different, as I’m not looking for change – I really just need to practice liking how I look. I fret, I do. I weigh myself far too often. Sometimes I think I look like a teenager, and sometimes I think I look old. As yesterday’s post showed, I compare myself to other people.

Also, I’ve been dressing like a schlub lately and if I take a picture of myself hopefully it will inspire me to cease and desist. I have cute clothes. Hell, I practically have a shopping addiction. There is no reason at all for me to not look presentable.

So. Stockholming myself, day 1.

It's snowing today, so I pulled my tall boots and my sweater dress THAT HAS POCKETS WHICH IS AWESOME back out of my closet. I'm fairly sure both came from Target. Now that I'm looking at the picture, I think this dress sorta makes me look pregnant. I'm not. Hair: up, as it is most work days. Because I'm lazy.

    No way. Cute dress is cute. Also wtf, that trunk is awesome, I love old trunks that are turned into tables.

    I know that me telling you that you don’t look pregnant isn’t going to totally change your mind, but I’ll tell you anyway – I do NOT see what you’re talking about at all. And pockets make every outfit 18% more awesome.

    Thanks for participating!

    It was actually my grandpas from the Air Force, which makes it even cooler if that’s at all possible, right?

    18%? That sounds very scientific, so I’ll defer to you on that.

    KNOWING and knowing how you look in something are two totally different things. It’s so ridiculous. I’m working on it.
