I'm so UN-girly

I am not your average girl who loves getting all "dressed to the nines" for a night out or just to get ready for work...I am almost the opposite! I love my sweatpants and sweatshirt and staying in somewhere with friends and watching a movie...I enjoy "comfort" I guess, and comfort to me comes in nice baggy sweats!

Luckily for me, my husband loves me in my sweats too!

I have really only felt truly glamorous one day in my life...gone through all that glitz and glam process (hair/nails/outfit/shoes/accessories/etc.)...and naturally that was the day I married Mike.
Seems a bit crazy I guess, but I usually had my sister cut my hair growing up, curl it for dances at school and did my own nails. I'm not much for going to the salon to get a cut and color (never actually had my hair colored anyways!)...and normally I let my hair grow out and chop it all off and donate it to Locks of Love (done it 3 times!!)

And I don't consider myself the most fashion forward girl out there by any stretch of the term. My group of girlfriends now all seem to have their own fashion sense, and I love them all for their unique inspirational ways...and most also seem to love to wear dresses for a night out, whereas I would much rather slip on my jeans and go with the flow. They all seem to love these exquisite shoes too (and I have never been much for shoe buying but admire their tastes), rather I will head out with my flip flops instead of pretty pumps...although secretly I would love to own a pair!

I'm also not much for make-up...I think I own eyeliner and that may be it (except for a few crazy items I have used for fun dress up type parties!) I hardly ever put that on either (come on, I work in a lab and wear a lab coat and gloves...not trying to impress some cells in a culture plate!) I think it comes down to being lazy for me to be quite takes too much time to figure out something nice to wear and shoes to go with it and how to do my hair fancy with makeup and nails (although I do love to go get a pedicure and don't do it often enough...those massage chairs and hour long pampering can't be beat!)

Maybe something will click inside me and I will start to enjoy getting dressy (to be honest, I have bought more dresses lately), but for now, I will stick to my sweats!


  1. girl, you are gorgeous. That dress was AMAZING on you! BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

  2. Wow, that is one beautiful photo!!
    I am exactly the same, I just don't understand the obsession with shoes or fashion. I gave up years ago! But hey, when it comes down to it, it's really not that important. As long as we're comfortable and happy!!
    Thank you for your comment by the way :) xoxo
