Join me as a try to feed my family lots of Raw and Superfood. I like to write about the edible garden, exercise, and learning to love my natural expression. I am a Family Practice Physician and believe there are alternatives approaches to feeling your best.
I LOVE Dressing MY Truth. I need a holiday dress and "dresses" for an "occasion" is the one thing I do not like shopping for. I put some thought into how to redo this dress I wore 2 years ago. (the family photos are almost 2 years old.) The chains and pin are from the DYT store. This belt is from Nordstroms (Thank you to Rabbi Wendy for pointing me in this direction.). I have some other chains and belts to choose from, but I thought this might be a good example to show you some options of what I have in mind. I think it is Tricia who put a belt over her church dress and made me think to add a belt to this.
Let me clarify I won't need the paper clip to hold up the belt. Nor is my waist as small as I cinched the belt. :)
I don't know what shoes to wear. When I got the dress the clerk suggested silver wedges. Now I know that's not me AND would not work with these brassy accessories. I thought about some boots. Since I might be traveling, I don't know how much I want to pack. But boots would be so unlike me (and fun)! I found a pair of dressy but textured boots and tried to add the image below. I don't own them yet. Ya might just have to visit the link for the brown pair. Question for cold climate people. If your dress hem doesn't cover your boot. What do you wear? Tights? It will be air conditioned, but definitely not cold. The dress is just below my knees and I would really like to cover most of my legs in a formal setting.
My hair will not be blunt every again. It will be wild and free. And as I have plenty of earrings and cuffs (and even that big DYT ring) I am confident, that the rest of the accessories shouldn't be an issue for me.
If I get boots, it is likely that I won't need them very much in South Florida. I don't mind investing in one pair that is right for me. I want to travel more this coming year.
I think I am going to keep John in the brown jacket in the photo. He has a shirt the lightest shade of yellow(?) like on our type three 3 color card that should work for him underneath. It was very hard to type my husband. That's another story.
Denise Punger MD FAAFP IBCLC & her husband John Coquelet DO are in private practice in St. Lucie County, Florida. They have three unschooled, xbox loving sons, who are first degree black belts in karate. Her perspective as a board certified family physician with expertise in breastfeeding is truly unique. Permission to Mother is her first book. Much of it has been worked on at home with the three boys active in the background. The holistic side of her practice has taken off with emphasis on nutrition, lifestyle, and bio-identicals.
I didn't know the full impact of my eating choices. I let my husband be in charge of our food. All he ever brought home was "take-out." I am so glad I found the strength and the resources to be in control. This photo is about 6 years ago. Three years ago, Sept, 2007, is when I started sugar-free... now I am doing Raw and also Beauty Profiling. There is always something new to look forward to when it comes to self improvement.
