This morning as I was drying my hair after a shower at the gym, a woman approached me saying something that I couldn’t hear because of the noise from the hairdryer. A bit confused, I turned off the hairdryer and said, “I’m sorry, could you repeat that?” To which she replied, “What a pretty dress, you look so feminine.” My face lit up with a smile as I thanked her for her compliment, and we both went our own separate ways.
I started thinking about this nice woman’s comment, realizing that I don’t often wear dresses, or even skirts for that matter. Quite honestly, the only reasons that I wore a dress today were: 1) All of my pants are in the wash, and 2) It really is too warm for pants (the highs are in the low 80’s), but I just don’t feel right wearing shorts in November!
So, what do you think? Is it worth the effort to bring a bit of the feminine into your everyday appearance? If so, how do you do this – perhaps you wear skirts, or cute headbands, or make sure that you have a nice hairstyle? Or do all of these seem like unimportant details to you?
God bless you all this Monday morning!
