Face-off Friday

Why some of the unisex trends are worth trying on for size. I felt comfy & pretty in them, even at work.

Here it is again, Friday! And I couldn’t be happier. This past week has been one of those weeks that doesn’t let you sleep. You try to, but you just keep thinkng about whatever is that’s keeping you up.

Today, this morning at 7am, I was tired of dressing up, tired of all the “professional attire” details like your jewelry ensemble, your frizzies, the state of your nails, which bra for which shirt, or dress, or which eyeliner? Black or brown? Should I wear my glasses or contacts? If I wear this eyeshadow with the glasses will it look weird? Did I turn the hair iron off? Did I put enough of that under eye stuff that covers up how sleepy I am? I was tired of remembering to pack a snack, the iPad, the lip liner that goes with the lip gloss, the right folders, the bandaids for in case my heels turn on me and a water bottle.

Lately, with all this professional attire etiquette, I feel like a Victorian woman with my organs being crushed by a corset.Why some of the unisex trends are worth trying on for size. I felt comfy & pretty in them, even at work.

All I need is a fainting couch to faint on.

So, today, on this particular Flamingo Friday, I decided to rebel on all the usual thinking and planning. I dressed like a man, drank water from the break room’s kitchen sink (out of a cup of course) and opted out of eyelid shimmer.Why some of the unisex trends are worth trying on for size.

With relaxed fit khakis, saddle shoes and a fitted navy blue tee, I felt as comfortable as I did pretty. I felt smart, casual, preppy and quick on my feet, cooler than ol’ blue eyes, Frank Sinatra.

I didn’t avoid the entire makeup routine, but I kept it clean and simple with an SPFed CC cream, one coat of mascara on my top and Lower lashes and a pink/nude SPFed lipstick.

After those few seconds in front of the mirror, all I needed was a ponytail and poof! I was ready for my favorite day of the week.
