Soooo, they are having a good series over at To Love, Honor, and Vacuum this week about not dressing frumpy at home. Frumpy seems to be wearing pj’s all day, sweatpants, or yoga pants. I don’t wear pj’s all day unless I have the stomach flu and I only have on pair of yoga pants that I wear sometimes when I am pregnant, BUT I do tend to wear frumpy, outdated, worn out, and sometimes stained clothes at home- NOT attractive. The reason I excuse this is that my clothes tend to get destroyed in the line of duty- spit up on, grease splatters, rips/stains from yard work or animal chores. I do want to look nice, clean and attractive to my husband, so I am taking on the challenge of looking better! I talked to Richard about it last night and he seemed pleased with the idea of me dressing a bit better at home. That clinched the deal. I am joining in the fun! Sheila, asked us to take a picture of what we were wearing when we read her post, so here it is: What I Wore Yesterday.
Sorry for the bad quality picture, but it was late and this was right before I put my pj’s on! This is actually a little NICER than what I normally wear. It is a brown t-shirt with a jean tiered skirt. It probably would have been cuter with a vest or cardigan and a necklace, but necklaces are pretty much out with a 3 month old. The yellow socks definitely don’t add to the outfit. 😉 Today I tried a little harder. Probably still frumpy in some people’s playbooks, but my husband likes clean, flattering, and neat. Fashion is something he never notices, and I honestly I just wear the things I LIKE. He also thinks I look great without makeup on. (Yay! I hate makeup and rarely wear it!) Love that man! With that, here is today:
This outfit I picked because it doesn’t look shabby and is VERY comfortable! As I said before I have a three month old, and she is my fourth baby. It is taking a bit longer to get that tummy back into place, but I am working on it. In the meantime, jeans are out for me. They are uncomfortable and not cute when my belly bulges over the top! I might do some sewing this week and see if I can come up with some variety in my wardrobe. 🙂
On a last note, I highly recommend Sheila’s blog. She has some great stuff on their about marriage, the fun stuff that goes with it, and family from a biblical perspective!
