Thought For The Day

I am a trousers girl, I make no secret of that but I am trying to push myself for fear that some time soon I won't like my knees (age gets to us all right) then I will regret not getting my pins out more in my thirties.  I was playing around with my H&M skirt again the other night as it still hasn't had an outing.  It really did show up how much differently we see ourselves in our mind to the actual image in front of us in the mirror.  I kept wondering if this skirt was too short and it has a lot more volume than I'm used too but I just loved that about it initially as well as the pockets.  I'm still not  100% convinced but in the photo it really didn't look as bad as I thought.  So I guess my thought for today is, take a photo!  Yes we hate doing it but by doing this for my blog it has really highlighted the difference it can make in how we view clothing on our body.  I'm planning on wearing it this week-end so I'm hoping once I've broken it in, I will get over the length!
