Saturday, the DH and I planned a quick shopping trip. The hub, rarely shops, would never, if I did not force him now and then.
So, anyway, while he was napping, (health issues), I showered and actually fixed my hair and put on some makeup, and a very casual out fit, not the usual jeans and t.
A little back ground, he is a mechanic, I work for a veterinarian, so getting "fixed up", rarely happens.
My daily work wardrobe, is t's, jeans, scrub top, hair in a ponytail.
I have not fixed my hair or put on any make up since Christmas! No particular reason to, and no where special to go.
Anyway, he never said a word. Not sure if he missed it, didn't feel good or whatever. It was bit disappointing however.
I wasn't expecting *wow* you could be the next Miss America, but a hey, "you look great" would have been nice.
One of the things that bothers me about this is I have 2 weddings to go to this summer, so back in March, I found a simple, classic, sleeveless black dress that I look good in. Change up the accessories a bit and good to go. The dress was a lousy $18 on sale.
Was considering, a hair appt, just to get the color jazzed up.
Now, wondering, since both weddings are casual, slap the hair in a pony tail, scrub top, jeans and wore out running shoes, no makeup and who gives a crap?
I don't want to steal the show, these are my nephews, that I love dearly that are getting married.
I just, when I bought the dress, and it looked great, was feeling good about the chance to dress up, which I don't get very often. When I cleaned the closet this spring, I realized, I own, ONE very casual summer dress, no skirts, 2 very old dress jackets, and NO dress pants of any kind!
Now, I'm just so deflated about the whole thing, I could barf!
All of that being said, I will overcome Saturdays funk, I will get the hair done, (have not had my hair done in like 3 years) get the accessories and I will rock the dress! And I will have a good time! My sisters and I always do.
