I talk constantly about getting dressed in the mornings. Girrrrl, I know it’s hard. Some days alllll I want to do is stay in yoga pants or sweats. Some days allllll I want to do is stay in jammies. And yep, there are days where that is EXACTLY what happens. And I’m not ashamed.
The point is, I just try to not make a habit of it. Because you know as well as I do, you often FEEL the way you look. If that makes any sense… If I look frumpy, then I probably feel frumpy. If I haven’t taken the time to brush my teeth, or comb my hair, or throw on some mascara, I don’t feel like myself.
Sometimes people will ask me, “Why are you so dressed up? Who are you getting dressed up for?” And the answer is… ME! I am getting dressed for ME and my own sanity. And yes, sometimes I want to get dressed up to wow my husband. I love remembering those days where I’d PAINSTAKINGLY plan my outfits before I was going to go out with him or before I’d see him… I don’t ever want to lose that spark or that desire to woo him… you know?
But, the fact is, I get dressed for ME. It’s so easy to put that stuff on the backburner and make yourself less of a priority. And trust me, it does NOT happen every day… but I notice that on the days I get up just a LITTLE earlier and put on some makeup and a cute outfit… I just feel so much better.
Now what about you?
Who do YOU get dressed for? Do you agree? Disagree?
