Wednesday Goodies: GIVEAWAY + Getting dressed.

Wake up.

Wash face.

Put in contacts.

Shower.

Tell yourself to NOT put jammies back on… but do anyway.

Feed yourself and the kid.

Get your kid dressed and accessorized + hair brushed.

Work a little.

Play. Work. Play.

Realize it’s noon and my jammies are still on. Also notice I didn’t brush my hair.

Make myself get dressed/wear the makeups.

It’s a well-known Chelsey-fact: I’m happier and more ready for the day when I actually TRY to wear “real” clothes. Not jammies. Not the jeans from the floor + a t-shirt. Don’t get me wrong, I also enjoy jeans and a plain tee… but dresses make me feel more fresh and happy. I love dresses, pretty shirts, and shoes. All the shoes. SO, that’s why I made my “Dress up at least 3 times a week” rule. I don’t always want to do this, and I’ve still gone 5 days IN A ROW wearing jammies, but when I follow this rule my whole day is better.

Getting Dressed // thepapermama.com

I know it’s just a bit of make up and a cute dress with adorable shoes, but it’s apparently what I need in this crazy life. Before I had my kiddo, I would never leave the house without some mascara (and definitely not in my pajamas). That’s just not reality for me now. I mean… wearing my nice clothes means more laundry and that I also have to actually try, when it’s so much easier to stay in the pajamas. So, my small goal to wear “nicer” clothes and makeup at least 3 times a week works. I know my hubs enjoys it. P.S. I love the Almay Color + Care™ Liquid Lip Balm. It’s a nice break from lipstick, which usually dries out my lips, but this lip balm does not.

Getting Dressed // thepapermama.com

That means 3 times a week I add this to my routine:

– Pick out a cute outfit, and actually put these clothes on.

– Put on mascara.

– Put on some lipstick or lip gloss.

– Go about my usual day.

I also try to make one of my 3 days land on the weekend, since my hubs and kiddo are there to hang out with and aren’t in their jammies. Ha!

So, Almay wants to give one of you a special treat for coming by and reading. Answer this question in the comments below to enter to win a $100 Visa gift card:

“How do you get your favorite weekend look?”

    I don't wear makeup other than lip gloss, so that is not an issue for me. I keep my hair very short in either a spiked pixie or faux hawk, so that too is not an issue. Basically I add zest to my look via accessories to my limited casual wardrobe. Mostly, I focus on having fun with my earrings. I love wild fun earrings, the more natural but eye catching the better.

  • Kate on said:

    I love your "3 day a week rule" and might have to try it out for myself! Now that I'm home and recovering from all things cancer I've been having a rough time finding my new "look". It's hard to feel stylish without hair! My go-to weekend looks usually include a maxi dress (to hide the new scars on my leg and back), wedges, and a wide brimmed hat. Oh, and big sunglasses and sunscreen too! If I'm having a good day I'll even put on a swipe of lipstick and some mascara 🙂 Can't wait to check out this new Almay Lip Balm!

I've finally gotten in the habit of forcing myself to get up and put on cute clothes and makeup most mornings instead of sweatpants and a tee. on the weekends is actually when I like to stay in my pjs! but when I go out I like to wear a cute skirt with keds–that's my typical combo. I keep my makeup pretty natural–concealer, powder foundation, mascara, maybe a little moonstone mineral eye color by Mary Kay. thanks for the giveaway!!!

  • Jennifer B on said:

  • One Frugal Girl on said:

    I tend to wear the same thing no matter what day of the week, but on the weekends I definitely put on a pair of cute sandals.

  • Shannon on said:

    I get my favorite weekend look by wearing makeup. If I'm not wearing makeup I feel icky and unprepared. What if someone stops by or what if I want to run an errand??? Must have makeup on to feel nice and ready for anything even if I'm in jammies and my hair is up in a bun.

  • Cynthia C on said:

    I get my favorite weekend look by showering and rooting through my drawers to find the most comfortable thing that's clean. I swipe a little makeup on and brush my teeth and hair and I'm done!

  • Heather G on said:

  • Sammie on said:

    My weekend look? Well I am also guilty of wearing the wrinkled jeans from the floor and a plain v-neck tee, but sometimes I will spruce that look up with a flowy blouse, eyeliner, a couple coats of mascara, a pop of punchy pink blush, lipstick and *maybe some wedges, but let's face it flats are much more comfy… 🙂

    By maybe I mean rarely. hah!

  • Lindsa on said:

    As much as PJs are comfy on the weekend, there is something about getting your day started by getting dressed even if you have no plans to leave the house! I go very casual on the weekends if I am just running errands or hanging around the house, in jeans, a Michigan T, and hoodie in the fall and winter. In the summer, I am all about my mint shorts with a cute tee to match/coordinate. Once you are dressed, it makes getting BACK into your PJs at the end of the day that much more fun!

  • Christina on said:

    I get my favorite weekend look by going for the cute yet comfy look, throw on some eyeliner and call it a day. I love wearing heels, so even the right heels with a dress pair of jeans does the trick! 🙂

  • Jen @ Ginger Guide on said:

    My weekend look is usually comfortable, I have to chase after a whirlwind toddler boy after all. Usually some BB cream with sunscreen, bronzer, and lip gloss. Also clothes that are good for rolling around in the grass….I don't know why that's his thing now but it is so I do it. Gotta love making your kiddo laugh!

  • Michelle V on said:

    I have been trying to put actual outfits on when I left the house but then I got pregnant and nothing fits, lol. Still trying to look somewhat put together even with my limited wardrobe but summer dresses, earrings, and flip flops have become my middle ground of looking in season while not putting too much effort into it.

  • Ginger on said:

    On the extremely rare occasion I do anything sociable on the weekend, I wear this black t-shirt dress from Target that is super comfy but I ALWAYS get compliments on, and swipe on black mascara. Lip gloss could probably do a lot for me, being pale, but I haven't found one I love yet. You look cute!

  • Hilary on said:

    I definitely look a lot better on the weekends because I actually have time to look nice & I get to see the bf. I straighten my hair, that's my biggest fix 🙂

  • Mami2jcn on said:

    My weekend look is casual but a little more done up than usual. I wear lipstick and my hair down. During the week I usually don't wear makeup and I keep my hair in a pony.

  • Nataly Carbonell on said:

    I like to wear a cute tight bow for the hair

    and bright purple, pink or red lipstick on the lips.

    and soft creamy pink or beige eye shadow

  • Alaina Joe on said:

    Ooooh man, after a 40-hour work week, I usually reserve my whole Saturday or Sunday for 24 hours of complete laziness. I kind of have to trick myself to get dressed up (or even dressed) on the weekends. What I'll do is plant the idea in my husband's head that we should go out to dinner or the movies or something. This way, I know that when it's time for me to start getting ready and I want to just say "you know what, pizza delivery and Netflix sounds so much better," he'll but me until I'm up and in the shower. He's much less of a homebody than I am, so I can count on him to get me motivated to get cleaned up for a fun night out with him.

    Thank you for this awesome giveaway!

  • Lisa Brown on said:

    My weekend look is the same casual look I do for the week: hair in a french twist, light smoky eye, and lipstick, jeans, a great t-shirt and wedges.

  • Lindsay on said:

    I really like to try to be relaxed on the weekends, especially in the summer when we are going to the farmers market and such. I agree however that a good goal is to try to get dressed – I feel like it makes you feel like you accomplished something before you even start your day, which hopefully leads to more productivity! (of course, I am typing this IN MY PJ's!!)

  • Elena on said:

    I like to wear a nice dress and my favorite perfume on weekends

  • Kelly D on said:

    I get my favorite weekend look by wearing light makeup such as mascara and lip gloss, a pretty blouse, dark jeans and bright jewelry.

  • Rachel on said:

    I am 33 weeks pregnant with my first child …. and I already feel dead tired and like getting ready is an accomplishment some days 🙂 BUT I am always happier once I'm dressed/ready for the day!

  • ktwhelan on said:

    My favorite jeans, cute tank, flats clean loose curls (i can't help that part) and light makeup!

  • Wani on said:

    I have found myself in a similar fashion rut for… oh, I don't know… nearly eight years… ish. It seemed like I was either pregnant or breastfeeding for ages and only lately have I started taking to time to accessorize and wear makeup on a regular basis. It does make a big difference in my attitude throughout the day. Who doesn't feel better about themselves when they are dressed like they care about the way they look? 😉

  • Lynda Del on said:

    My weekend look would typically include dressy tops and khaki or denim bottoms, a low ponytail, layers of dainty pieces of jewelry and a pair of wedge heels. For makeup I just use a BB cream, mascara and tinted lip balm. This look is enough to make me feel dressy and cute.

  • Jennifer W on said:

    Makeup is definitely the catalyst to making me feel more put together. It really doesn't matter what I wear. If I have makeup on, I feel ready for anything. On the weekends, I always feel cuter when I dress up…even if that's just a maxi dress, flip flops, and a necklace.

  • znoshi on said:

    I usually don't wear make-up, but I love me some heels! I dress up in some jeans and a cute shirt with a jacket. Yeah, it doesn't sound to dressy, but I feel dressy when I wear it.

    Weekend look? That's laughable. With a three year old who's obsessed with our water hose, my weekend look consists of a BIG hat, sports bra and stretch mark concealing shorts. HA! But I always have my trusty mascara on. After all, it makes me feel just the tiniest bit normal in all this chaos.

    I'm with you- forcing myself to get out of those comfy clothes (read- what's on floor or yoga pants) and actually style myself!

    To get my weekend look, I fluff up my naturally curly hair, put on my cutest dress and spritz myself with citrus-scented perfume.

    I read blogs for outfit inspiration and then try to whip up something new and try to incorporate a piece I haven't worn in a while. Then I read beauty blogs for new looks to try and sometimes use tutorials to practice new techniques!

    I like doing something nice with my hair. If I'm dressed up, I tend to feel better about myself and have less trouble "getting up and going",

    If I really want to jazz it up for the weekend, I'll put on fake eyelashes. I have tons of cheap ones so it's easy (especially since I've had lots of practice) to glam things up, even when I have two kids in tow.

    My favorite weekend look is black skinny jeans and a nice top with a little bit of lip balm and mascara.

    I almost never get fancy so when I do on the weekends, it almost always involves about an hour in the bathroom doing hair and makeup. To curl or to straighten is always the big decision and for an all over flawless look, I use BB cream, add a little mascara, my bright pink lipstick, and finish it all off with the Almay Smart Shade Smart Balance pressed powder (I really do use it and LOVE it). I almost never wear dresses and feel my best when I dress up a nice pair of jeans with a beautiful shirt and accessories.

    I need heels and red lipstick. Those two things can make any look appear to be trying! Hahaha! It works, I swear! 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

    I definitely relate to making yourself get dressed. I work four 10-hour days, which means 3-day weekends, and it's so tempting just to stay in pajamas all day. I mean, they're COMFY. My weekends consist of maxi skirts & dresses with just a little makeup. I saw a thing on Pinterest that said something to the effect of "We may feel dressed up, but we all know maxi skirts are just crotchless yoga pants." Haha. Sounds like perfect weekend wear to me…..

    Also, that dress and brooch is giving me heart eyes. Love it!
