These were the exact words he used the last time I mentioned putting any effort into an outfit. I also like "why are you putting on makeup to go grocery shopping??" and "why are you wearing that, I'm not even going to be at this party!" or "Awww, you're wearing a sweatshirt and jeans. This is the girl I fell in love with." Le sigh.
Back to the point, I don't really understand his argument of letting yourself go just because you got married. Because I'm married I should stop exercising, plucking my eyebrows, shaving my legs, getting regular haircuts, and wearing make-up? It sounds a little too close to my habits in college, and thank goodness I've stepped it up in terms of grooming since then. (Someone should have also burned those black loafers I used to wear, oh em gee were those ugly shoes.)
I mean, it really assumes that the entire time we were together before marriage, I was taking care of myself so that I could keep him attracted until we got married...or it could also mean that I was in peak condition JUST IN CASE someone cuter and more desirable walked through the door and I needed to look cute in case he wanted to whisk me away. (I know, totally not possible, right?) In any case...
I'm not letting myself go. (At least for this first year of being newlyweds.) First on my holiday list of still caring about the way I look is this top.
Which will look super hot with skinny jeans. And these shoes.
And yes. Sometimes putting on lipstick is necessary to go grocery shopping.
