It is quite long but what I love about it is that it actually ties underneath your belly. It looks - well, at least I thought it would look - quite cute and not as accentuating as the lovely a-frame shirts that start just under your boobs and then flair out making you look he-uge!!!
I tried it on today. And ....
Hmmmm, I do like it. I thought I would love it but I just like it and with 14 weeks to go I couldn't decide whether I liked it $50 worth for 14 weeks because it's not going to be one of those wear-me-for-a-few-months-after-the-birth type tops. It's just not.
The thing that has weirded me out the most though? It's red and white! RED! R-E-D! That's right, RED! I don't like, have never liked red yet somewhere in these hormones is a strong connection to red. No idea where it came from. It has never happened before but I have been really drawn to red since ... I'm not quite sure whether it was just before I conceived or just after.
I thought I'd look up some meanings. On my first google search the second sentence in this color psychology site made me glad I didn't buy it ...
Red clothing gets noticed and makes the wearer appear heavier.Thank goodness, I thought. While I'd like to be noticed, I certainly don't want to be noticed for the wrong reasons. So, of course, I tried another site and this is what it said ...
On the psycho-spiritual level, this chakra relates to self awareness. That is to say our awareness of ourselves as human beings and our place on earth. It is the area of survival and relates to our basic human instincts of fight or flight. Red gives us courage and strength. The colour relates to stability and security.So am I feeling secure? Not sure. Stable? Not really. Well, I don't feel not stable.
Anybody else have anything for me?
Nobody who knows me can believe that I keep being drawn to red. It's happened alot where the first thing I've chosen has been something red. It's like a magnet and I'm very curious to find out why.
Will NEVER like red shoes though. Unless their Dorothy's in the Wizard of Oz.
