Some days, we don’t feel like taking the time to do our makeup or put together an award-winning ensemble of pieces. You might be thinking, “So what? I won’t look fabulous today. I don’t need to dress exceptionally all the time. I’ll just be normal today.” I feel that way sometimes.
But let’s say you’re going to an event. You put on a nice dress, say, “I so don’t feel like it,” take it off, put on mediocre pants and a decent top, and walk out the door. But let’s say you start having fun when you arrive. You don’t want to feel self-conscious that you look like a slob.
Solution: Own a dress or skirt that looks good, is dressy enough, and is super comfy. (Dress is easier, but if you use this solution often, you’ll need to change up your accessories. A skirt requires effort in choosing a top, but will make it feel like you’re not wearing the same thing again and again, assuming you choose a different top.)
I wear this dress in this situation:

No sweatpants! Please! They automatically make one look like a slob. Instead, opt for a pair of soft leggings. They are still comfortable, but offer a much neater look. Pair ’em with a lightweight, longer (should cover at least 3/4 of your butt) sweater. To add color the outfit, wear a bright tank. Don’t forget to swap your sneakers with cute ballet flats!
Remember, just because you feel like a slob doesn’t mean you like one. We all have hard days, weeks, and months, but when we choose to dress well with a smile on our face, it shows that we are strong, and we won’t let ANYTHING bring us down.
