I don’t know about you but some of the hardest days to get dressed for are the days when I have no plans and am doing sweet F.A. (fuck all)
You know, the kind of days where going to the supermarket is the most exciting thing that you have planned.
Its easy in summer, a loose flowy dress and you’re donzo, but in winter we need to layer it up a bit to keep us protected from the elements.
Murphy’s law also means that it’ll be on these types of days that I’ll get a phone call for a last minute catch up to go meet a friend for exciting out of house activities…. with 10 minutes warning…
Now If I am slothing around wearing my thread bare trackies, hair not done and makeup-less this is simply not going to happen, not in 10 minutes. Call me vain, I don’t care, I’m still not going.
This is why I like to make an effort to ‘get dressed’ even on my days off, sure sometimes that means leggings, a giant cardi and some slippers but, should I get invited to some sort of fun fest I can be there in a jiffy.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not sitting at home all dolled up waiting for a party, but if I am wearing proper clothes I am less likely to decline said invites or sit and watch 1000 hours of Gossip Girl reruns.
