Hmmm, I was supposed to have a guest today. Sorry, to the author, but I’m bumping her until tomorrow.

Her file is on my PC which is across the street. I’m housesitting for my daughter while she’s visiting her dad in DC. The day before yesterday when I packed, it was 60 degrees. Yesterday it rained throughout the day, and then last night it snowed. Snow on top of thick ice. I’m stuck. No coat. Definitely no boots. I have a vehicle, but it’s covered in a foot of powder and an inch of ice. So, I’m hunkering down until it warms up a bit today before I make a dash for my house.

So, I’ll leave you with a question…

When you’re wearing it, what type of clothing makes
you feel the most like the real
you?

    Honestly, I like warm wooly flannels. Not attractive, but warm and cozy. LOL. Hope you had a great holiday.

    Thanks, Kat! Hope you did too. I love those fuzzy pajama pants they sell at Walmart. Am wearing my puke-green Grinch pants and a tee right now.

    Since I feel most like the real me when I’m curled up with a book, I have to go with a long-sleeve t-shirt and soft pajama pants. I can’t think of anything more comfortable. It may be a boring answer, but there it is. Happy New Year!

    Probably yoga pants and a long sleeve cotton tee. That’s most comfortable and relaxing for me.
    Hope you have a very happy new year!

    It’s seasonal…….when it’s cold like now, I’m most often found in yoga pants and a long shirt over it. In the warmer months it’s capri pants and a tank top. :) Hubby calls that my “uniform”.

    Well for me that would be a long night shirt while reading or when I’m out and about a t-shirt and jeans.

    Anything comfortable and fuzzy – I hoard great sets of PJs and wooly socks. Otherwise, jeans and a t-shirt are my uniform of choice.

    Stay warm!!!

    Definitely yoga pants and a hooded sweatshirt. The Navy one my nephew gave me is a favorite. It’s big, sloppy, and totally me.

    Merry christmas!

    I am comfortable when I am wearing something that fits. I love long dresses for going out, pants and a top for everyday, and a bathing suit for swimming.

    For me when I wear my Ohio state shorts and a tee shirt with my Stevie Nicks baseball cap and of course my New Balance shoes. To complete the look I have to have my post-its and a pencil in my pocket and my mp3 player. I also love to have my clipboard with paper to write. I know that is more that just clothes but i feel like all of the above is the true me.

    As some folks have indicated – in the warm months, when I’m sitting outside under my trees in my wild garden, I love my long, soft, flowing summer dresses and if not barefoot, then thongs so I can slip my feet out and feel the earth beneath. Now? When it’s cold and tempestous outside – baggy sweats, baggy socks. big baggy fleece I can feel relaxed, comfy, and the feel of all the softness rubbing me all over? Quite delightful!

    The type of clothing that makes me feel like “the real me” is tailored, business-like, conservative…yet feminine. I feel sexier in that type of clothing than if I were to wear revealing clothing…which makes me feel uncomfortable. :wink:

    I hope you had a fab Christmas Delilah :lol: The clothing that always makes me feel like myself or makes me feel better is my comfy blue jeans, one of my Muppet “Animal” T-shirts, a pair of my Muppet “Animal” socks and one of my Hoodies; normally one of my Edward Cullen hoodies with the hod up and the sleeves covering my hands. These pieces of clothing are my security blankets and I love them :-D xxxxx

    I love my jeans and t-shirts. Top it off with a big comfy sweatshirt and I’m happy.

    Hope your Christmas was good and be careful on that ice when you dash across the street!

    Layers–a nice long camisole that stays tucked in, and cute but comfy underpants, covered by a comfortable shirt, jeans, and a sweater or sweatshirt :)

    Clothing that make me feel the most like me, hmmm. I guess that looking good, while being comfortable, is the ticket for me, so a tunic/skirt top, and leggings/jeggings, for me.

    I like to wear loose flowy dresses or skirts. Caftans are great! Very comfortable and feminine.

    :wink: Honestly I love to slip into my footy pjs. They are not sexy as my husband would testify to to but I am cozy and warm and that is all that matters. This time of year the warmer the better.

    I am like my skirt and a tank top. With a throw blanket over my lap and a book in my hand. Then I am really comfy.

    I love wearing my victorian and ren fest type clothes,usually a flowing skirt and a shirt with flowing sheer sleeves and well they cant see whats under the clothes but I do have a weekness for garter hose and lacy bra with matching underwear,the combination of the older look and the newer fashion makes me feel really free somehow and very confident,so thats what I wear as often as I can get away with it lol
