For the Ladies

I am sure you have days when you just don't care what you wear.

So you put on your usual garb-for me it's a cami, black, and jeans. Since the cami really isn't appropriate all by itself-for me it's because having the Orclette made certain measurements increase and cami's tend to show off that area-you throw on an old button-up shirt. And then you look in the mirror, decide it makes you look fat, and you tie the ends to reduce the billowiness.

A rather ho-hum outfit, in my opinion, but then you woke up that day not caring.

And you go to have lunch with your hubby. You open the cafeteria door and suddenly all male eyes are drawn to you. You surreptitiously make sure the cami is pulled all the way up. You mentally try to reconstruct what you looked like in the mirror-did you miss something funny? Failing to see what they're staring at, you wait for hubby. You ask him if he likes what you're wearing. He pauses, takes a moment to notice, and his eyes light up. He does indeed. 

And you still have no clue what you did that day that you don't do other days.

I suppose I'll have to ask my wife what a "cami" is and if I have seen one on her!

Armsandfury, if you'd seen your wife in a cami you'd remember ;) Cami is short for camisole. Just think "sexy lingerie" and you're probably picturing a cami.

Ms. Orc (Beowulfa?), the outfit you described? To me it conjures up an image of a classic pin-up Country Girl. She's the one that may have adorned the posters found in milk bars and general stores in the 70s and early 80s.

Check out Kenny Chesney's song "She don't know (she's beautiful)", specifically the third verse:
"Mornin' comes and her hairs all a mess,
That's when she thinks she looks her worst.
It's times like this she don't know why
I can't take my eyes off her."

guy's REALLY like the 'just crawled out of bed and threw on one of your shirts' look. Probably because we then immediately imagine throwing the girl back into bed.

I am picturing u in Toby Kieth's vidoe "Hottie, She's a hottie"


It's usually when we dont realize how cute we are that they do. Ever notice that those are the days when you're "just not that into" being one hot mama?
