I have to look professional for court. I am a graduate student in psychology with two internships that involve days at court. I also have to look semi grown up when collecting data for my master's thesis and when teaching. I spend a lot of money on comfy cute shoes and try to find comfy professional looking outfits that do not make me look like a stuffy old lady. I wear my clothes a little big and buy soft fabrics. I had jeans hemmed so I could wear cute european type flats with them. At home, I look completely different: mismatched pajamas and sweat shirts and hubby's old fleeces and pink american eagle slippers!
When I was working I always had to be 'Dressed', dress slacks and top, bra, stockings, dress shoes, make-up and hair. 1- 8 - 0!!! I wear jeans, sweats, t-shirt, NO bra, tank top under my shirt, socks, sneakers, flip-flops in the house after my shower, I haven't worn make-up since June. I will have to wear shoes in a couple of weeks for a church event, I'm going crazy trying to find a cheap pr of flat shoes. My clothes have to be soft, not tight and nothing constricting around the neck. I get antsy if the neck is tooo close, feel like I can't breathe.
I'm always cold, have to dress in layers. The rest of my family pretty much dresses in tees and slacks or jeans. My DD is funny, if she is home she's in shorts and a tee. My DH is starting to feel the cold a bit more, I don't know if I'm rubbbing off on him or what.
The talk about heated seats reminded me, everytime I get in my car the seats are cold and the pillow I have for my back is cold. It seems forever before everything (including me) warms up in the car. I don't turn on the blowers till the HEAT is on. My DH has the blowers going and windows open, the cold air on my face sends me into the shakes. I hate winter.
God bless. Alice.
