Last week as we were getting ready for our belated Valentine’s Day date, my boyfriend said, “I’ll never understand why guys don’t like actually getting dressed up every now and then.” I couldn’t agree more. His comment got me thinking about the value of a well-curated outfit and spending a few extra minutes on the rituals of getting ready.
Lately, I’ve been making a point of getting a little more gussied up and I can’t even begin to tell you what a difference it makes. I’ll always be a champion of the effortless look; jeans, a t-shirt and simple sneakers have been my tried and true uniform for most of my life. This being said, things are only as special as you make them. Get out your phone, call up some friends, make a dinner date and commit to an ensemble that really makes you glow. Then come back here and tell me how amazing you felt.
