So, I should keep my mouth shut on this one, but I can't. Famous last words, right?
There are a lot of blog posts circulating these days regarding "dressing for yourself vs. dressing for a man."
And I'm sorry, but what? This is a thing?? I can't even.
The mention of statement necklaces, top knots, maxi dresses and red lipstick are being repeated over and over. Apparently men hate these things, and if you want your man to love you- then you shouldn't wear them.
And so I sighed the heaviest of sighs in all of the land.
If I am not mistaken, the best thing you can wear is confidence. If you feel smokin' hot in a maxi dress WITH a statement necklace PLUS a top knot AND the reddest [or hot pink-est] lips anyone has ever seen, go for it. If you feel good in a skin tight bandage dress and sky-high heels, then wear it. If you feel most like yourself in double-denim, then by all means, get that Canadian Tuxedo on your body ASAP.
And if "your man" has a "problem" with it, like a serious problem- then I have upsetting news... I don't think your relationship has been built on the proper foundation.
Now, don't get me wrong, I understand putting a new look together and feeling 100% uncertain about it- you don't know if those pants work with that top or if your eyeliner makes you look like a raccoon. You wander to the living room and say "honey... does this... look okay?" and they say no and so you change it and repeat the process. Advice is one thing. But dressing WITH the intention of making your significant other happy, that is annoying. I'm sorry to every single blog reader I lose by saying that, but it is annoying.
You see, your significant other should be happy when you feel good about yourself, and are happy with yourself, and feel like you could conquer the world. THAT is what they should want for you- for you to have the most self-esteem possible. NOT for you to look like an object that they enjoy by the standards that they have set.
The whole point of my blog post is this:
When you get dressed in the morning, wear what makes YOU happy. Put on your favorite outfit, do your hair and makeup just how you like, and try to have the best day of your life ever. Because you look awesome JUST LIKE THAT.
