my typical work day attire is pretty casual. i get up, shower, throw my hair in a pony tail and walk out the door.
no make up. no contacts. it's a fairly simple process for me.
now, this doesn't mean that i don't know how to doll myself up...
when the time is right, i.e. when i know there will be cute boys around, i'll actually put make up on, put my contacts in, wear heels, etc.
i'd like to think i'm the perfect combination of low and high maintenance.
but that's not the point of this post.
this past weekend when my mom was in town there came a point when i noticed her staring at me.
"what are you looking at?", i asked.
"you, and your glasses, and your sweats.", she said.
"and what's wrong with them?" i reply.
"i just don't understand how you go out of the house looking like that? have some pride!!", my mom said.
cue laughter from me, but my mom continues...
"your glasses are just unacceptable, i just don't know how you walk out of the house with them on!", she yelps.
a little background for you, i'm blind, like crazy negative 13 blind, i.e. my glasses, even with the ultra thin frames are ridiculously thick.
a little more background for you, my mom has almost exactly the same eyes, but wouldn't be caught dead wearing her glasses out and about like i do.
but i don't care about wearing my glasses in public.
i mean, would i wear them out on a date or to a wedding? definitely not.
but to work on a day where i have no client meetings and the only men around me are taken, there's no point in putting on mascara and showing off the girls - no need to be the office temptress here.
plus not putting in my A+++ appearance effort into going to work allows for one of my favorite life rules to come true.
the worse you look when you work(out) the better you look when you go out.
so, are you a primper? or do you just shower and go?
