FlyLady wants me dressed to lace up shoes every morning. Ugh, even on Saturdays?

I work from home. And I’ll admit before the school run I see no point in getting dressed. So I sit and work in my nightclothes. Then I realise it’s 8.30am and I need to leave the house in 15 minutes. Cue bag-lady who doesn’t have a clue.

I am so sick of looking awful. So maybe getting dressed before I even touch that laptop is good for me. My goal is to look photo-ready every day of my life (even when sick – hahaha). I hope that my doing this I will also be setting a good example for the boys, who are terrible at getting dressed in the morning (especially at weekends and during the school holidays).

What is Stopping Me Getting Dressed to Lace Up Shoes?

One of my issues is that I don’t like how I look in my clothes and make-up. Nothing seems to suit me. I’m a little overweight and I don’t have a personal style. So I’ve taken some steps to feeling better about getting dressed in the morning:

  • I’m ordered a digital colour analysis from Cardigan Empire. This will advise me of the best colours for my complexion. I can use this to select the most suitable clothes and make-up for me.
  • I’ve started an account with Dressipi. This selects the best clothes for my figure and style and gives me a selection that I can use as inspiration or buy directly.
  • I’ve started the Weight Watchers diet plan. I’ve successfully lost a lot of weight with this programme in the past, so I’m confident I shall be able to do this again.

My new morning routine will start with getting dressed to lace up shoes before I set foot downstairs. I’ll take time to fix my hair and make-up. And I’ll take a photo of myself every morning to remind me that I’m Flying on a journey to peace and happiness.
