I've always pretty much been a t-shirt and jean girl except when I've had jobs that required dressing up. Now it's sweats and t-shirts in the winter for the most part and shorts and t-shirts in the summer. I dress layers due to sudden temp changes and have a lot of fleece jackets to wear over ts.
Before fibro I never left the house without every hair in place and makeup on and would have never worn sweats to go anywhere. Now I wear sweats pretty much all the time, rarely wear makeup and my hair is hopeless. Energy has a lot to do with it for me. If I use the energy to get all dolled up to go somewhere I have less energy to do the things I need to go do. The feel of fabric is a biggy for me, if it is not soft I do not want to wear it. I know that is strange.
Yesterday we went to granddaughter's birthday party and I did wear jeans and even put makeup on. The shoes I wore had a heel on them and I can feel it in my feet today.
I like the earth shoes too. Shoes is like everything else these days I wear them for comfort not style.
I have done a 180 when it comes to how I dress and look since fibro. I don't know, when your battling everyday with pain and lack of energy your priorities change.
luv and hugs
