There are clothes that aren’t merely a piece of fabric, covering you to keep warm. Some might be expensive. Others are connected to a special occasion you want to remember. Some are your staple items. The ones that you grab whenever you’re feeling down. And then there are pieces of clothing that are reserved for those special occasions. Pretty lingerie is all of the above for me. So here’s my ode to dainty lace.
Sometimes I wake up, feeling like embracing the world and showing off a killer attitude because I just feel so incredibly good about myself. Some days, though, all I want to do is crawl back in bed and stay there, curled up in a ball of self-pity.
It’s no secret that I don’t look like those Insta-babes. And most days I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will never do. I do a lot of sports – mostly for health reasons, but also because I can actually feel my body getting older now, bummer. AND I’m a self-confessed foodie and adore eating. Thus, my body is nowhere near perfect. I would say, I’m pretty self-confident most days.
However, there are days where I wake up, look at myself in the mirror and am just not feeling it. That’s when I usually go for the sexiest and daintiest piece of lingerie I own. I put it on consciously and immediately can sense a change in perspective.
It’s fascinating how much a little piece of dainty lace can affect my mood and self-appreciation. It then doesn’t matter anymore what I’m wearing that day. Be it a casual “jeans and sweatshirt” combo, or a more classy outfit. It’s what’s underneath that counts. It’s knowing that I’m wearing lingerie and a matching undie, that makes me feel like a million bucks, even though I probably most of the time don’t actually look the part.
I feel a million times better wearing little, dainty lace bras with lots of cute details. Just like this gorgeous one from Ohsolovelyintimates via LeahZoe*. Dear Esther kindly gifted me with one of her amazing products so I can find out what all the fuss is about for myself. And I have to admit, cheap underwear so does not compare. This piece of clothing is more than just a bit of fabric. It’s a feeling. It gives me confidence. And what’s better than being confident and feeling like you can conquer the world just by putting on a tiny bit of dainty lace?
