What's your style? OT

What's your style most days? Are you all done up with nice hair and make up? Suits and pumps? Jeans and sweaters? tshirts and sweats? Jammies all day? Matching tops n shorts for the gym?

I'm in upper mgmt at a large but casual company so I wear jeans (no holes) a lot with boots or fun type shoes, sweaters or jackets and simple shell tops. I love sleeveless stuff but I have fat arms. I still wear it but I don't look good them. Simple makeup... Always mascara and natural lip gloss. Hair depends on what time I wake up! Lucky to have really thick hair so it usually looks fine without a lot of work but it almost never looks 'really done.". Weekends I'm a yoga pants and tshirts girl with a ponytail.

Well, I own my own business, so when I have to go represent my own product, I usually look like a giant nerd. My favorite outfit is a white button down shirt, a necktie, well worn jeans, and boots. Maybe a nice v neck sweater vest. I wear black horn rimmed glasses and have short hair.

When I'm not representing my company, I usually do the yoga pants/tee shirt or hooded sweatshirt thing with tennis shoes. I groom dogs from home for rescue, and also for paying clients (mostly clients who meet me through rescue), and when I'm not doing that or designing, I work with my dogs as much as possible. I have to have something on at home that can have the dog hair rolled off easily if someone knocks on the door to pick up their dog.

These days I mostly wear long tops and leggings or skinny jeans and boots. Sometimes I wear heels, sometimes not. I wear very light makeup maybe 2-3 days a week. People don't seem to notice if I'm wearing makeup or not which is the way I like it to be. My hair is wash & wear, it's very thick so I don't fuss over it at all.

On days when I'm just not in the mood to fuss I wear a sweater and jeans. In the summer I wear sandals or sneakers but it's too wet to wear anything but boots this time of year. I have a shoe fetish so I've got every possible shoe style in every available colour but really only wear about 5 pairs most of the time.

I dress the same way when I'm at home as I do when I go to work. Evenings out I might wear a dress or nicer top and jeans or leggings with heels.

Mommybear - go to a Sally's and get the Hair One Conditioning Hair Cleanser for I think either thick hair or curly - it is the knock off of WEN hair cleanser and costs about $10.00 a bottle and should last a month - I got the WEN hair cleanser but I am canceling the revolving order and buying the Hair One from Sally's I find it just as good and cheaper than $30.00 a month!! There is also a product called Morrocan Oil for curly hair I found it to be a bit thick but the regular Morrocan Oil was great! It calms down the curls and the frizz and makes you hair look shiny!!

To stay at home I'm always in my pjs, or shorts and t-shirts... To go out, I ALWAYS try to do (flat iron) my hair and do my makeup.

I usually just wear jeans, a cute shirt and some converses, maybe some jewelry. Somedays i throw my hair up in a pony tail and some days i blow dry it and wear it long. Sometimes I wear make up and sometimes not. I guess it just depends on the kind of day im having lol.

Mostly, I have to dress like a grown-up for work (skirt, heels, nice top.) I'm back and forth on the makeup--maybe about half the time I get around to it. The office is casual, so if I don't have client appointments scheduled, I can get away with boots/jeans/sweater. Even when I do makeup, it's just eyes (shadow/liner/mascara) and lips. Never use foundation or blush. Ever. Don't even own any.
Job #2, I train dogs, so it's yoga pants, athletic shoes (why are all athletic shoes SO flipping UGLY?) and a sweatshirt.
Hair? Medium brown, long, thick and straight. Not a single hint of gray yet (and I'm 43!) Usually back in a pony, or up, though, just to keep it out of my way.
Earrings--long. Always. Even when training/trialling my dogs. I have people ask me how I can stand it...I feel naked without 'em! I've got dozens of pairs, in natural stone and glass, so I can match almost ANY outfit, too. "Good stuff" for date nights with hubby, and such, but fun earrings for everyday!

I'm casual pretty much all of the time. I love my blue jeans. At home, I do jeans or sweats with a t-shirt/sweatshirt. For work, I wear casual slacks with a sweater or button-down top of some kind. I have 5 pairs of shoes. 1 pair is tennis shoes & I have 2 pair of brown, 2 pair of black. One for each cold & warm weather. LOL!

My hair is as straight as it could possibly be & is currently parted on the side & shoved behind my ears. It's dirty dishwater blonde/brown with some blonde hightlights. It's very fine but I have a lot of it. I prefer short hair but can never decide on what cut I want next before it gets long again, so I go back & forth between the 2. Right now it's a little past my shoulders, & I'm trying to decide on a new short cut. Whatever it is will have a few blonde highlights & some auburn lowlights.

I desparately wish I knew how to dress up more. My fashion sense doesn't go far beyond basic casual.

I wear makeup every day, but you can't really tell. My eyeliner is gone not long after I get to work, & I don't really care...but wish I did.

I always wear earrings but never change them. I have 5 in my left ear & 3 in my right. The top 2 in my left ear are small diamond studs & the rest are small silver hoops. I don't wear a watch or bracelets. They get in my way. I wear my wedding rings & a birthstone ring that DH gave me as a "promise" ring. If I had decent necklaces, I'd try to wear them, but really have nothing fancy enough to go with much jewelry.

I guess my style is pretty much none. LOL!

I wear professional clothes to work, mostly slacks and sweaters. As soon as I get home I take it all off and into yoga pants.
On the weekend I wear my super comfy jeans, because I hate super tight jeans and some fun fashion top.
I hardly wash my hair on the weekends. Biggrin

I was really wearing leggings for a while on the weekends until I saw a glimpse of myself at the mall.. :jawdrop: . Leggings are not for everyone.

I'm pretty much a modern day hippie, lol. I always wear long skirts, unless it's pj pants at home or yoga pants to exercise. I can't even remember the last time I wore actual pants in public. I just love skirts.

I am always casual though, work in social services and can wear whatever I want. I never wear make up unless I'm going out on the maybe once a week or sometimes a little more often.

I have long dark hair, but it's so thin, I'm sadly thinking of cutting it off a little. It's got just enough of a wave to it that in order to wear it down I have to straighten it, so it's usually up in a clip unless I'm going out and doing the whole hair and makeup she-bang.

I'm not a big jewelry person except lots and lots of necklaces. I especially love amber and wear it all the time. My nose is pierced and I just keep a little hoop in that.

I don't even own a pair of high heels and probably will never wear them for as long as I live, hahaha. I usually just wear knee boots in the winter, or sandals in the summer.
