When Your Wardrobe Reflects Your Feelings

I had a hard weekend y’all.

My co-worker quit this Friday and she was my partner-in-crime. My heart felt broken as I realized I’d be going into work everyday without her being there. Does anyone else have co-workers who are just super awesome like that?

It felt like the enemy decided to pick on me this weekend when I was already feeling a little down.

The anniversary of one of my miscarriages is approaching and my heart felt (feels) heavy.

I thought it was a little humorous that my wardrobe has been primarily dark this past weekend while my feelings weren’t chipper and bright.

Do you think we may subconsciously choose certain outfits and clothing pieces based on how we’re feeling?

I don’t know about you but if I’m feeling down and sad, the last thing I want to be wearing is bright pink or yellow. You know, happy colors.

So this weekend, I wore a lot of black with small pops of color.

Sunday night I got to spend some time with the women in my Women’s Bible Study and wow do I crave this time with them.

We’re going through a study on Jesus and I was reminded how as a Christ follower, we’ve made a choice to 100% follow and trust in God. We watched an interview with actor Jim Caviezel (who played Jesus in The Passion) and he said “You were not made to fit in, you were born to stand out!”

I decided instead of being sad and feeling sorry for myself to hand over my sadness to Jesus.

I’ve been telling Him for days now how sad I am and every single time I am reminded that He is here for me. He understands and He is with me.

Scripture isn’t just a book of words to pacify us when we’re troubled.

The Word of God is the very breath of the Lord and the words are promises.

God is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. -Psalm 34:18

It doesn’t matter if it’s something like being upset that your friend won’t be around anymore or if it’s the heavy ache of never holding the precious baby you carried in your womb but not in your arms. God cares about what we care about. Always and every single time. He is that kind of good Father.

Cast your cares upon Him sweet friends and feel the freedom to express yourself in your wardrobe. One of the things that I love most about fashion is that it’s an art. There’s so much more behind the clothes we wear.
