Last summer I was at the grocery store with my mom. There was an unbelievable amount of women there in their sweats or pajamas. My mom commented on it and said she wouldn't feel comfortable going out in public like that (not only were the in PJ's but hair a mess, no make-up etc). I made the comment that I wish I felt more comfortable like that in public because it would give me more time in the day to do other things. Then my mom smiled sightly and said 'Yes. But their poor, poor husbands.'
That has stayed with me. I think about how I used to get ready for my husband. When we were dating and first met I dressed for him. As the years have gone by it seems like I now dress for everyone else. I dress up when I go out with my friends, when I go to church, when I just am out running errands. But in dressing for my husband I have slacked. So I am working in it. I do a good job of it when we go out. But I need to be better about when we are just at home.
Here's what I wore on date night:
Cavalcade. Watch: Michael Kors.
So yes. I do these posts to remind myself to get out of the sweats and put something cute on. And I promise it happens for than once a week! But please tell me that I'm not the only one who just really likes wearing yoga pants when I'm at home?!?!
And I am guest posting over here today. Yes I am a bookworm. Come read about it...
