Housewife Sizzlin', Not Fizzlin'...

Uh-oh, did your man just come home to you still in your robe, hair uncombed and possibly unbathed? Do you feel like it was ok, because you were taking care of the children all day and didn't leave the house? Are you a woman who feels like "he should love me as I am, no matter what"? If so, then let's just put all of the nonsense aside, and change the mentality right now!
I am not writing this blog as a marriage and family counselor, but for some, it will be an eye-opener into yet another area that fashion touches. Can you not see why I'm so passionate about fashion?! Housewives too can be fashionable!
Yes, I understand that you may have been with your partner for years, and he's seen you at your best and worst. However, if he's been seeing you at your worst most often, don't be surprised if the romance is fizzling and the sparks are hard to catch. If he loves seeing you in a t-shirt and panties for bed, then by all means, keep making it happen. However, if you've been donning the granny gown and flannels for the major part of your nights, then something similar to the above would be a nice change for the man of your life.
Being a housewife and mother myself, I totally understand the urge to "bum" around the house and the days when motivation to "spruce up" is lacking. However, the reward that I receive, when my husband comes home from work, looks at me with a sparkle in his eye and says "you're just so cute, you can't help it"... Well, it's more than worth the effort to tidy my hair and throw on a simple cute dress or ensemble. Did you catch that? Simple...
Sundresses, shirt dresses, rompers and jumpers are the simplest outfits ever, simply because they are one piece! These pieces are easy to throw on, right after a shower and before the man of your life comes in or even to make a trip to the grocery store and running errands. After all, it's not just about the way your husband sees you, when he comes home, but also the way that you represent yourself and your family in the public eye...
Other simple ensembles are the classic t-shirt and jean, shorts or casual trouser. I've put a picture of one of my favorite looks that includes palazzo pants. I LOVE these pants, because they not only speak to my eccentricity and goal of uniqueness, but they are mega-comfortable! You will also see pictured examples of simple tops. "T-shirt" does not mean pulling out the old moth-eaten, paint-stained and dingy underarm gym shirt from "back in the day". Just keep it simple with a cute feminine top or tank.
Remember, just because you're a wife and mommy full-time does NOT mean that you can't also be fashionable. You will find that when you spend a little time on your simple out of the day, you will not only look better but feel better! You know what else? You've just spend a little time on you, without having to "make" time for yourself...
We spend so much time in these full-time household positions taking care of just that- the household. I cook. I clean. I take care of others fashion inquiries and needs, etc., etc... I realized the other day how perky it makes me feel to still make my husband smile and to continue to feel sparks in our relationship both, because I still represent the woman he married, and because I still feel like his #1 girl. I wanted to share how fashion helps make that happen...
As always, I am your passionately driven ChristalNicole...
