Because my job at a veterinary clinic has me stuck in scrubs most days of the week (and scrubs, at least in my humble opinion, really aren’t all that far removed from pyjamas!) you’ll almost never find me wearing anything resembling sweats or pj’s in my downtime…even if I’m just planning on staying at home!!
There’s plenty of girls I know who can’t imagine wearing a dress or skirt for anything but the most special of occasions, and I always have to wonder – where’s the fun in that?! Of course I love my jeans, too… but we women have so many more sartorial options than the average “mainstream” male does; why the heck not take advantage of that a little more often than once or twice a year?!
Now I will say that this acid-washed pencil skirt and floral blouse combination wouldn’t be an outfit I’d choose if I was planning on spending an afternoon on the couch watching Netflix…but for running some errands?? Bring it on!!
And even though my hubby sometimes grumbles about the time it takes me to get ready to face the day, I also know he appreciates the fact that even after almost 18 years together, I’ve yet to devolve into shlumpy “housewife” territory!! 😉
(By the way, I am in no way saying that all “housewife” looks are shlumpy; check out Not Dressed As Lamb’s amazing ensemble!!)
