I have this idea...

...that I could be a chic, cool woman, one who dresses good and is really put together. I have this dream that I could be this person. And yet, I see that I am currently sitting on my couch, in sweats that have a rip in the seam (I won't say where), a sweatshirt, and my hair in a pathetic looking ponytail having done 90 minutes of yoga and killing time until I go for my 5mi run. How can I be chic and put together? Because I know that even after I get my run in and shower and get cleaned up, I'll still be in jeans and a t-shirt and hair probably back in a ponytail.

I used want to be a girl who wore dresses. I used to hope that I could pull that look off. And maybe I could, but I haven't gotten there yet and I wonder if I ever will. I live in hickville. Don't get me wrong, I love my job, I love my man, but this place doesn't feel like a place where I could walk around on a Saturday in a dress shopping without people asking me if I'm heading to a funeral or wedding. It's weird.

But for now, i'd just like to be "put together" and more than a slug on the couch.

Yeah, I'd like to look "put together" as well... Telecommuting for the past 5.5 years has been really bad for me in that regard!

@Edith - Thanks hon!

@jillwillrun - I know! The last 4 years have been rough on me too. I'm not telecommuting but I do have a uniform of sorts to wear to work, so having to even look slightly put together is not required. So weekends turn into jeans and t-shirts. Which sometimes just makes me feel sad.
