I've heard people say "Women don't get dressed up for men, they get dressed up for each other". Do you think that's true?
I wore these "boyfriend" jeans to a flower arranging party with my girlfriends (more on that beautiful event later). Paired with a frilly peplum top and strappy heels, I thought it was the good way to dress up and yet still be casual.
However, when I showed my husband my outfit, the conversation went something like this...
Husband: Are those new jeans?
Me: Yeah, Zara Sale, you likey?
Husband: Eh, they're not my favorite pair you own...
Me: Why cause they're cropped? (Men typically hate cropped pants on women. The word "high-water" comes to mind.)
Husband: No, your butt looks better in your other jeans... (then he quickly adds...) but you still look great!
Obviously, I wore this outfit anyway. Why? Because I liked it. I felt good in it. These jeans are really comfortable and relaxed (no jumping up and down to put them on required) - everything my mood wanted that day. Of course, there are many times when I do dress for my husband (he loves me in white), but for the most part, I dress for myself.
Who do you get dressed up for?
