It’s Friday, so let’s talk about something fun! I’ve loved reading all the comments from the posts, and I really appreciated all the thoughts shared on yesterday’s post about gray hair. Today we are going to talk about letting go of all our convictions regarding dress. Yes, you just read that right. Only for a certain time though. 🙂
Have you ever considered that your husband might want to see you dressed in something a little more revealing than what you normally wear? Something fun, maybe a little shorter and cuter than your everyday clothes.
I’ll let you in on a little secret. 🙂 We love to do dates at home, and while we haven’t done them nearly as often as we used to (thanks to a crazy college schedule), it can be just as much fun, if not more fun to stay at home for a date. We either put the children to bed early, or we put a movie (Duggar dvd!) on for them to watch.
When we do dates at home I have certain outfits tucked back that I wear just for Sean. They are adorable outfits, but not what I would consider appropriate (modest) to wear out in public.
It doesn’t have to be expensive. I found a cute black dress at a thrift store for $1.00! That simple effort can produce amazing results, mainly a husband head over heals in love with you for your date!
I hear from a lot of ladies who say their husband doesn’t really like them to dress modestly, that he prefers to have her “stuff” on display. I’ve often thought this is a good compromise, dress for your husband for a special date night once a week in clothes he likes, and then dress in clothes you feel comfortable in when going out!
Let’s not forget that we were sweethearts long before we became mothers! That is a huge motivating reason behind this “Frump to Pumps” series! Our husbands need to know that we remember them, in a way that goes beyond being thankful for the paycheck that they bring home every two weeks!
Be a little bold and daring every once in a while, and surprise your husband. I’d be shocked if he didn’t notice a dramatic difference in your appearance. 🙂
