How do you typically dress? Are you more formal or casual? Simple or accessorized? Feminine or androgynous? How much of a difference is there between how you look at home and how you look when you go out?
One of my problems is how cold I get!! Even if the heat is turned up, I wanna pile on the layers! All the hoodies, fleeces, and bathrobes. It's not very attractive, lol.I try to dress in classic feminine styles. I get really stuck wearing yoga pants and a tank/ sweater at home, especially in the winter, it’s just more comfortable for all manner of daily tasks. In the summer I have very casual dresses I like to wear during the day. Trying to get in the habit of getting a real outfit on daily, but I just prefer to wear comfier clothes cleaning and doing things while my husband is at work. If I’m not going out during the day I will shower after lunch and put on normal casual clothes and makeup for my husband (want to look nice for him). I always get ready before leaving the house, even for errands. I want myself and my children to look clean and neat. My best and dressier looks are for church, dates, parties. I have 2 pairs of pants and the rest are dresses. My husband likes it when I switch it up with different accessories and especially a fun hairdo. Did fun buns a few days ago and he loved it. I like simple quality more the older I get, I’ve recently started sewing and looking forward to doing the matching mommy kids thing in the future. Especially for holidays.
I know what you mean! I am constantly putting on and taking off my sweater all day! Honestly the first thing my husband does when he gets home is put on comfy clothes, and he doesn’t seem to care if I’m in them either. Home is our sanctuary from the world. If I am clean, hair neat, and decently dressed I don’t beat myself up. I’m more concerned with what Ive accomplished in the house and with my children during the day!
Have you tried silk or ultra fine merino undershirts? They are wonderfully warm without all the bulk. They are an investment but worth every penny imo.
I dress very casual. Usually a loose fitting top and jeans or leggings. In the summer I’ll wear a sundress and some flip flops. How exciting. Lol. I actually have a lot of nice, formal clothing but it rarely sees the light of day.

Often I am astonished at how not long ago it was. Like when watching old movies or talking to my in laws. How different the world they grew up in was..I know what you mean, I have a few really nice dresses that I love to wear, but there just aren’t very many fancy occasions to go to anymore. Even when there’s a reason to dress up, like for example going to the theatre, people have gotten so casual that I look out of place in a dress. It’s so backwards from how things used to be not so long ago.
You’re in the right place @TexasJenn. There are at least a few unattached strong masculine men on here looking for a single feminine girl!I'm a single professional working from home. At home it's comfy all the way - in winter, leggings and a sweatshirt, cute business casual tops for work video calls.
In the more staid pandemic climate and not dating or in a relationship, it's mostly laid back when getting out and about - jeans and a cute top. I've barely worn makeup or jewelry the whole pandemic - a little for important work video meetings like giving a presentation.
When I start dating again, I'll definitely sparkle it up with dresses and fun stuff. When I was going to the office, it was dresses/skirts half the time and cute skinny pants and tops half the time, to mix it up.
My style is generally classic feminine, with fun accents here and there. Men often tell me they love that I wear dresses so often and have feminine style.
My mom found religion later in life and became a regular churchgoer. She put together a beautiful wardrobe of skirt suits from mostly consignment and thrift store finds, has always maintained a great figure and was known for her style. She's handed down a few of her vintage dresses to me and I always get so many compliments when I wear them. One is a sleeveless wrap dress with a tie waist covered in red roses and greenery. It fits me like a glove and makes a real statement. My mom paid less than $15 for that dress and people just rave about it. Thanks, MomOften I am astonished at how not long ago it was.
