Smarter Style: Style Every Day?

Posted by   + Show Post

Some days I have style to spare: accessories, shoes, outfit, hair, makeup...all exactly right for where I am going and what I am doing.

And some days are, well, today. I wore sweatpants in public! I was up late hitting a big deadline and up early with one of my kids who has decided getting up at the crack of dawn is A-OK. I got makeup on and my hair looked good, but the rest? Let's just say the only difference between me and people who wear their PJs in public was that my outfit did not have bunnies on it.

And you know what? I'm going to argue that sometimes, that's okay. Life happens. If you have a baby under six months and manage to pull together a decent look even once a week, you're awesome. If you are busy with kids, work or volunteer committments, and the rest of your life, then it's ok that sometimes you think first about comfort. Sweats or yoga pants aren't OK everywhere....I wouldn't wear them out to a restaurant (unless it was a coffeehouse/smoothie shop and I had, in fact, just gone to yoga), to a social gathering, or (heaven forbid) to church. But the grocery store and school pickup? Sure.

Everyone has no-style days. Even my most gorgeous friends sometimes do the messy ponytail and the sweats because that's what they have time and energy for. I will always argue that putting some effort into your appearance makes you feel better about yourself. But some days it's effort enough to even get out of your PJs, and that's OK.

What do you think? Do you allow yourself no-style days?

I do, especially on a weekend day if I don't leave my house.
