I’ve worn leggings for far too many days now.  I haven’t put on makeup in more than two weeks. I’m in desperate need of a good dress up day.  And I can’t be the only one.

So here’s the deal.

On Tuesday, I’m hosting virtual, work from home dress up day.  You know, like in elementary school when you had pajama day or dress like your hero day.  Except instead of a costume, we’re going to put on our favorite work outfits, get all buffed and puffed, and give our stretchy pants the day off.

If you want to participate, dress up on Tuesday, and post a photo to your Facebook or Instagram with the #WFHdressupday.  You can dress professional or business casual.  The only rule is no athleisure, sweat pants or pajamas.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to start planning my outfit.

    love this idea! although I am going all-in with embracing no-makeup for as long as I can (part experiment – how does my skin/face do without all that STUFF?) but I’ll be there with dressing up in the new Boden dress I got right before all this started….

    Love it! I’m putting on an actual dress and tights and heels. I never thought I’d miss them so much!

    • RKT says:

      Sounds fun! I was wondering: I think you did a post on makeup for video calls a while ago? If so, could you refresh that for now? Tips appreciated!

      • Amy says:

        I find that most computer video screens will wash you out – great if you tend towards pale and blotchy like I do! I can skip the foundation and get away just fine with blush, mascara, lip balm to counteract the winter peeling lips and a swipe of the laura mercier eye crayons in whatever color suits you. 5 minutes or less. Add a dusting of powder if you run oily.
        Since I also used to go out of my house to do the school run/errands/etc. I’d add in concealer where you need it…these days apparently not necessary.

    Excited for the Tuesday dress up day. I have an RTR subscription and wasn’t able to cancel it for this month!

This weekend, I got two hours to myself for the first time in months. Really to myself. My child was asleep. My dogs were asleep. Kyle was off playing cards with his friends. My house was clean, and there was nothing else to do but sit in my bed and scroll Instagram. It was glorious. […]

The Counter: The Post-Product Era

When I was in my 20s, I bought every trendy nail polish, eye color, and lip gloss.  Sure, I could only wear them on the weekends, but why not wear emerald green liner?  In my 30s, I became enamored with skincare and took every “must-have” product for a spin.  But in my 40s, my skin […]
