Welcome to Day One of 30 Days of Getting Dressed! I thought I’d get you started with a look at what I wore this weekend.
Sunday (Dave and I matched!)
Getting dressed on the weekend can be tough because a typical weekend veers from the uber casual (working in the yard, going to kid sporting events, lazing around in pajamas) to the super dressy (church, date night, office parties). This means that when I’m out and about with my kids on a weekend day, I see lots of women running errands in their workout clothes because they’re just waiting until it’s time to get dressed for whatever they’re doing at night. Or, conversely, I see women who clearly put on something nice for church and then went home and took it off and threw on their workout clothes.
How about we find some good middle ground here? That doesn’t involve workout clothes, I mean.
Getting dressed doesn’t have to mean getting dressed up — casual clothes can be cute, too. Save your workout clothes for actually working out, and find some other alternative for all those parts of the weekend when you’re not shoveling dirt or running a 5K. A great pair of shorts and a fitted tee or button-down are perfect for hanging out with the kids; add a belt and a necklace and you’re dressed! And still able to unload groceries or shoot baskets in the yard or run the vacuum — or whatever the weekend brings.
What’s your weekend strategy for getting dressed?
