Jake insisted on making an appearance for the Valentines Day photo shoot. And who am I to deny him his place in the spotlight? It is pure puppy love!
Luckily we had a "dress down" day at school on Tuesday for Valentine's Day so I was able to be a bit festive with my clothing. There are certain things I have to keep in mind while choosing an outfit for school though...
- Will I be devastated if I get product on my outfit? I work with various facial cleansers, lotions, clay masks, waxes and other messy things while I'm at school and chances are, I will be wearing some of it by the end of the day. I wasn't going to be devastated if I got product on any of the pieces and they are all machine washable - yay!
- Will I be comfortable in this outfit while giving facials, providing waxing services and while walking around on a tile floor? I love wearing skirts and dresses but they require a certain amount of awareness. While giving a facial, it isn't my priority to make sure I'm sitting lady-like. The leggings addressed that concern and kept me from inadvertently flashing anyone!
- Is the outfit "salon professional" or comparable to what a client would expect to see if they were at a salon, day spa or professional skin care setting? While I wouldn't wear this if I worked in a day spa setting, I felt like I could walk in to a salon and be right at home with this attire. Although, I was surprised to see what others considered appropriate - not judging - ok, maybe I'm judging.
Just joking, rant not quite over. One final pet peeve:
No where in the word is there an "M" - I can't even tell you how I cringe when I hear "Happy Valentime's Day!"
VAL - EN - TINE'S DAY
Say it with me now!
VAL - EN - TINE'S DAY!
I'm terrible, I know.
