Dress Like a Girl Fridays {#PBGirlie}

By Friday I usually feel like this

If we even make it out of pajamas on Friday it’s likely I am in yoga pants. Last Friday though I looked like this

I also wore a skirt all day. I went out for a date with my husband that night and while we were melting in the 100+ temperatures and the hair didn’t stay down long it was fun to be all girlie again. Of course it was also fun to have someone else do my hair and make up for me but that’s another story.

Being dressed up on what has typically been my “is the week over yet day” put a little spring in my step and made it not seem like such a long day. It also made me miss the Dress Like a Girl Challenge, so I’m bringing it back!

Every Friday we are going to try to motivate ourselves beyond our yoga pants, at least until dinner time! The difference with Dress Like a Girl this time around is there are no rules. That’s right, nothing that you have to try for a day or a week, if skirts aren't your thing, no big deal. It’s not about a specific look but rather taking some time about the way we look.

Style is not about money. It's about making a conscious decision to present yourself to the world in particular manner. Does my style say my kids have taken over my life and I haven't had sex in decades? Or does it say I'm fabulous...~Laura Bennett, Didn't I feed you Yesterday

Let’s make it say we’re fabulous! Because we are! Fabulous for you may mean that you don’t wear your hair in a pony tail, you put on some lip gloss and you rock those yoga pants. It may be you dust off your kitten heels, or pull out a skirt you haven’t worn in forever. It may be that you throw on earrings and a necklace, you don’t have to be dressed up to wear pearls if they make you feel fabulous wear them!

Okay, I lied there is one rule, snap a picture. Yep snap a picture and share it on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #PBGirlie and tag me @PBinmyHair (on both!).

Let’s celebrate Friday’s by being fabulous!

Will you join me?

I so needed this today! I'm 25 weeks pregnant and rockin' a sweet pair of (maternity) sweats yet again. Thanks for the push! I forget about my need to have "fabulous" days way too often.
