Which of course got me thinking about silly things that we do all in the name of fashion. And of these things, the ones that I have decided that there is just no point in doing.
1. Wearing heels: I'm sorry, but if you tell me heels are comfortable, you are full of shit. I have a coworker who I have never seen in anything besides 4-6 inch heels. Every. Single. Day. I used to try to do heels when I needed to dress up for work or for a wedding. But I always ended up being miserable. So I finally decided it's just not worth it. And the other day, I happily got rid of every pair of heels I have (except 1...I figured, maybe, someday I'll wear them...or not).
|Yep. Just like this.|
2. Super tight skinny jeans: I did this before I heard the story about the woman getting serious nerve damage in her legs. I did this when I realized I was pulling on skinny jeans the same way I did leggings, but they were a whole hell of a lot less comfortable. So the few pairs of super tight skinny jeans I had- yep, those were in that same giveaway pile. Sure, I still have a few pairs of skinnies- but they are all relatively loose and/or stretchy and don't require me sucking it in all day to wear them.
3. Makeup on a daily basis: Hell, this has never been my thing anyway. Quite honestly, I can roll out of bed and leave for work within 20 minutes as long as I've showered the night before. Most morning, I wake up an hour and a half before I have to leave....and then proceed to lie on the couch for 45 of that, walk the dog for 30 of it, leaving 15 to get ready. If I'm lucky, I'll do my hair. But makeup? Yeah...not happening. The last time I wore makeup was a month ago for a wedding.
Just a few more things to add to this list of Why I suck at being a girl- one of my favorite posts from way back when.
