I recently came across this blog post: http://www.collegefashion.net/fashion-tips/25-reasons-why-you-should-dress-up-every-day/
It got me thinking to Friday night when Ben and I went to see the Soloist. I put on my favourite dress, a nice cardigan and some pretty shoes, I did my hair and makeup and I looked good! Once dressed Ben looks at me and instead of saying how nice I looked he said “why are you so dressed up?”
“because we are going out.”
“I didn’t realise we had to get dressed up,” he said it with such disdain I felt a little bad. I explained to him that a t-shirt and trainers would be fine as we were just going to the cinema. Just because I was dressed up didn’t mean he had to be. He looks amazing in whatever he wears.
Why should I ‘dress down’ because other people or or we are ‘just going to the cinema.’ I felt awesome that night and I was so happy that I was in a pretty dress. So to anyone, that doesn’t understand why I try to look good all the time, just remember how awesome I feel compared to how you feel in your tracksuit bottoms.
