What You Wear Is Important


Tip 216

Sweatpants and T-shirt

This is a fun season in which more than likely every couple will be invited to at least one Christmas or holiday party. For many of these parties, the attire is meant to be a little dressier than normal.

Since people aren’t cookie cutters of each other, “dressing up” can mean completely different things to each person.

Often, one spouse chooses more formal attire or at a minimum Sunday-go-to-meetin’ attire worn only for special occasions. The other spouse thinks dressing up is a clean outfit and wiped off tennis shoes or boots.

It seems in today’s world, many people deplore wearing anything that isn’t first about comfort with little regard to how something looks.

If one of you qualifies for these latter descriptions, for the sake of your spouse, be willing to put in a little extra effort in what you wear. Those heels for women and tie for men may not be as comfortable as your stay-at-home clothes, but it’s not like you have to live in these clothes the rest of your life. It’s just once, twice, or a few times a year.

Dress up for your spouse—not for what everyone else will think. Before you know it, the event will be over, and you’ll be back home and can change into those old comfy clothes.

That won’t be so hard, will it?

    This is always a good reminder. Much better than dressing in the latest fashion, dressing for the love of your life.
