The aforementioned statement is probably one of my biggest faults to date. If you know me, you know that since high school my daily uniform has included a t-shirt/sweater and some form of spandex pant. Comfort was always the main concern, followed by functionality, and fashion was probably the lowest on the totem pole. I wanted to be able to roll out of bed, change my shirt, go to school, go to orchesis, and come home to relax in the same outfit.
Now, as I am no longer a high school student or a college student, I feel like it is not appropriate for me to go out in public wearing last night’s PJs unless I’m going to the gym. Even then, I have designated work-out clothes. I have compiled a to-do list that will hopefully help me, and whoever else wants to use it, stop wearing spandex on a regular basis and start looking like an adult.
1. Don’t sleep all morning-this mostly applies to weekends. Whenever I sleep past 8am, I feel like I wasted the day and all I want to do is lounge in my spandex. Get up.
2. Get up and take a shower right away. I always feel more awake, more productive, once I’ve showered. The longer you wait to shower, the more reasons you will have to not do it.
3. Put on a pair of pants. If you are feeling like an overachiever, try a skirt or a dress. But at least put on normal, adult pants.
a. These jeans are versatile, comfortable, and good quality
b. My favorite dress pants
c. The best pencil skirt
4. Put on a real shirt. Not a t-shirt, a real shirt.
5. 3-minute make-up routine (full post coming next week)
d. Lip Stick
6. Brush your teeth. Just do it.
My goal: Dress like an adult every day, except Sunday, Until Labor Day. An update will follow.
