Adults play dress up too

I can't explain why, but sometimes I just want to look nice. I don't need a "hot date". I don't need a special occasion. I just want to look nice so when I look in the mirror I feel good. 
I wore a business-like skirt to volunteer at San Antonio Plastic Bricks yesterday.
I added a little eye make up and glass necklace to doll it up. Instead of wearing boots though, I work my OOFOS flip flops.
(It looked like this with a tank and flip flops). 
So I dressed it down a little. Why did I do this? I just wanted to look nice for a change. It gets boring wearing red and khaki everyday. Of wearing lounge pants and a tee shirt. It's a boost in my self confidence. 
Today I dressed up with a different purpose.
I had to work. I had to work on the sales floor dealing with guests. All this week, Target employees can wear Target brand jeans to work to promote the 40% off jeans sale.
So I dolled it up. Lots of questions asked of course, but do I really need a reason to look amazing?
Even if I'm the only one who thinks so. My little friend had his mom send me a picture of him signing I Love You (ILY). So I took a quick snap to send back. 
If you are like me with "nice" or "dressy" clothing sitting in the closet, use them. You don't need any more reason than, "Because I want to." Let people talk, ask questions, or speculate. Do what feels good and remember that beauty is only in the eye of the beholder. 
What do you see when you look in the mirror? 


  1. You are so super skinny! You look beautiful as always! I can't wait until both kids are in school so they can't share the food with me anymore. I can lose even more! :)

  2. Hey, I've been telling my kids for years to dress and look nice. They "fell" for what's fashionable instead. I'm still doing my best to get my 15 year old to were a formal dress around the house but she refuses. She wants to but says she is embarrassed. I told her to be true to herself. And let's face it, how often do you get dressed up just to hang at home? But it does make you feel GREAT! So I say GO FOR IT!!

    1. I agree! Flaunt it and enjoy the feeling of looking amazing no matter who sees or where!
