Sundays Fundays

Sundays are the day of rest- That day to recharge your batteries before you have to face another work week. So I understand that it takes a lot to get out of your comfortable sweats and get your butt presentable to the world.

[This is a tame picture searched for under ‘walmart people’- go ahead and take a look at this social media trend following the fashion choices of some. They range from the outrageous, the pajamas, to the indecent]

But I have one of my father’s teachings to pass a long:

“Before you leave the house always be sure that you look presentable. Never be like these people you see that go to the grocery store or that you see in walmart in their pajamas. What you are too lazy to put on a pair of jeans? I mean first impressions are everything- you never know who your going to meet. So be sure that you always look your best.” – Baby T’s Dad

ok.. so I may have been paraphrasing a bit. But generally that is how the mini lecture went. lol  At the time I just giggled, and said ok dad. But…he has a damn point. People who dress the part are more likely to get promoted at work. And there is a reason for that…it shows respect to your workplace, your boss, and towards your position at the company.

These principles for the workplace definitely are transferable to public locations. Dressing presentable shows respect to where you are and to the people around you. Dressing well is good manners!

But just because you should be presentable doesn’t mean you can’t be comfortable as well.

Be casual, comfortable, and chic all at once.

The weekend is when I like to experiment more with my wardrobe. Try a look or idea that I know I wouldn’t be able to get away with at work. They usually tend to be more comfortable and edgy. But sometimes I will go completely different like the hippie look above. Each of these outfits are all very comfortable and easy- they also all express my personality openly.

Presentable doesn’t mean you have to dress for an interview or work, or wear a bunch of accessories, or essentially try hard at all.

A sweater and a pair of jeans is as simple as it gets and looks very nice.

comfort and very chic.

Sundays are for sweats. I’m in mine as I write this.

But sweats/ pajamas are meant for the four walls we all call home.

I never thought I would get fashion advice from my father or that I would be passing it along here

But there it is. My fashion rant inspired by my father.
