As a woman

chambray - tjmaxx (similar here) // jeans - gap here // booties - target (similar here) 

I like to feel good about myself. I like my hair to be curled, and get a natural faded ombre going on. I like my legs to be toned. I like my skin to be dewy, and have little sun-kissed color. Most importantly, I like to look good for my man. 

It feels so dreamy when he comes up to me, grabs me by the hands, pulls me in for a kiss, and says "you look amazing in that." I melt. I pine. I don't care if you think this is cheesy or stupid because I love it. I love those moments, and it makes the time it takes to do my hair, to run and stay in shape, even the time it takes to shower, all worth while. 

Having my husband tell me I look rad is nice, but I also like to look in the mirror and be proud of the finished product a little dry shampoo, a light jog, and some tinted moisturizer made. It represents the time I somehow snuck in to take care of myself, and when you are a mother that is a rarity. Nothing says good job better than a six pack. Nothing says keep going more than a saggy bedonk. 

I am a woman, and I work hard to take care of my baby and my husband. Why not take a little time to work hard on myself too? There ain't no shame in that.
