Today's mission was to make myself feel good about myself by taking the time to put something cute on my body. The creator of the challenge was very specific in that she wanted us to put on what made us feel great. It didn't have to be makeup and lipstick. It could be any style that fits us best.
Just so happens, I feel the best in makeup and lipstick. Although, I tend not to wear it during hot days, because there's not much of a point, I decided to play with some makeup today. But instead of doing my usual ten minute prep, I went to my closet and picked out a shirt I love, but never seem to find the occasion to wear. It's a red sleeveless blouse with blue polka dots and a sexy secrectary style tie at the neck.
After putting on the cute shirt, I realized I needed some fun makeup to go with it. And using some of the new goodies I'd recently treated myself with was super fun. Then I saw the false lashes in my makeup drawer. Nothing makes me feel more sexy than killer eye lashes. So along with the top I never wear, I struggled to get those babies on and the band covered with liquid liner. In reality, it took me less than 45 minutes to go from thrown on outfit, and bare face with a ponytail, to feeling like taking a couple dozen selfies with the awesome lighting that comes through my back window of my house.
Taking some of the advice in the challenge I pinned some pictures of stylish women, and realized, I dig the shorter tops. So I went ahead and styled my shirt differently than I normally would.
I feel like I can take on the world today.
Maybe makeup isn't your bag. But I'd wager there's that one outfit you keep in the very back of your closet that you don't wear because there's no need. Or because it's dry clean only and that shit is a pain to deal with. I dare you to go grab that outfit and put it on. Join me today. Let's show the world how fucking hot we are.
Excuse me while I take a few more selfies.
PS. The song below came up in my shuffle, and I found myself grinning from ear to ear. Today's a good day to kick some ass. Woman up.
