Leather, Denim and Suede
Did you guys know that I even owned jeans these days? It's been forever since I've posted a non-dress based outfit on the blog. Ever since I started working from home I kind of gave up on getting dressed every day. I had a couple of really great reasons.
1. I worked from home and no one ever saw me and I never left the house (if I did I would change out of my sweatpants...to go to Walmart #KeepingItClassy)
2. I have to be to work at 7 a.m. and sleep is very important to me.
3. I was pregnant for a lot of that time and nothing was comfortable or fit, other than sweats and my husband's t-shirts.
4. I had a newborn and did I really want him spitting up all over my good clothes?
I love excuses, but I decided it was time that I left behind all the yoga pants and old t-shits (you know, the ones from high school, which was way to long ago.) I was feeling frumpy and gross and I dreaded that anyone might knock on my door and see my frumpy self. So I made a goal.
I decided that I did want to start getting dressed every day again. I loved when I used to put on a cute skirt and top, curl my hair and wear some make-up just to go to work. But, because I still love my sleep and I still have to get up early and stake care of my babe I decided I wouldn't go full out, but I could at least put on some jeans!
Last week I picked out an outfit before bed, so that when I woke up all I had to do was get dressed and brush my teeth. It's nothing fancy, but it's a start towards making sure I still feel good about myself, even when I get spit up on or I don't leave my house.
Motherhood is hard and so is working full-time while trying to be a trophy wife ;) so why not try and just feel a little bit better about myself by getting dressed. It's the little things right?
What little things do you do to make you feel good about yourself?
Similar shirt, my jeans, my bracelet (it's a Valentine's gift from my hubby and I love it. Plus it helps inner-city youth go to college!), similar necklace, similar booties.
