As much as I adore getting dressed up every morning, what I think a part of me may actually enjoy more is coming home at the end of each day and getting the heck out of my clothes.
There's nothing quite like the feeling after getting home from a long day and throwing down a purse that now seems to weigh a million pounds, kicking off a pair of stiff heels and freeing my toes, taking off a now-too-tight-after-a-big-late-lunch belt and rubbing my food baby belly, and releasing my neck and wrists from all their jingle jangle (though I did totally load up on the necklaces here - but they're light!).
Most evenings if I'm "done" for the day, then my hair gets pulled back and I'm in a pair of loose shorts or pants and an old tee (my new-old fave has a graphic of Mickey and Minnie Mouse giving each other a big ole SMACK of a kiss and forming hand hearts) with flip flops.
If I've still got stuff to do that requires going out in the public or cas dinner plans, I likely will still change - hey, if I've got the clothes, then wear them, right - into typically-for-weekend garb. (Shoot, I've been known to change more than once even on the weekends - there is such a thing as different levels of casual, is what I keep telling the eye rollers). This outfit is a perfect example of my idea of still looking put-together, but in a so-much-comfier cas after-hours way.
Are you a quick-change artist when you get home? What are you most comfortable changing into?
