My daily uniform consists of yoga pants, tank and flip flops.
Some days I throw on a sundress but since I work from home and I’m usually chasing two little boys around the house, yoga pants work.
Sunday I went out with my girlfriends for a girls’ day out.
I took an extra long shower, put make-up on, spent time on my hair and even slipped on a dress I purchased awhile ago but never wore.
As I walked downstairs, my husband did a double take.
Ladies, after being married for nearly 9 years and together for over 15 – that felt good.
“Wow, you never wear dresses like that,” he said.
He is right.
It was a simple dress, yet it made me feel really good.
My 6-year-old said, “Mom, you look like a cat!”
In a household full of boys, I’ll take that as a compliment.
I decided then to make more time for myself.
I’ll ditch the yoga pants and do my make-up, even if it’s only a trip to the supermarket.
A simple dress makes me feel girly and most importantly it makes me feel alive.
When is the last time you slipped on a dress?
