I know what you’re thinking. “But Dye- you are sexy, what could you possibly mean?”
Even if that’s not what you are thinking, I’m going to pretend it is because it makes me feel better. Fair enough?
Anyone that knows me knows that I try to keep the sexy in my marriage. It’s too easy to slip into a pool of comfort and forget about taking care of yourself. I’m not saying you shouldn’t be able to just be comfortable, but is frumpy housewife where you want to be everyday? If so, good for you..really, but that’s not for me. My husband has always told me that I’m out of his league and I like to live under the illusion that I am. It’s far from the truth, but why try to prove him wrong on this subject too. The man has suffered enough! Truthfully – him saying that to me is just one of the many reasons I fell in love with him. So take note guys, women like hearing that shit.
So I’ve been getting comfortable lately. I’m pretty sure I’ve been wearing a hat everyday for the past two weeks because I haven’t made the time to do anything with my hair. Don’t get me wrong, I can make a hat look sexy – trust me – if you add pigtails and tell your hubby to call them handlebars… it really changes how you view things… if you know what I’m saying. But I don’t want to fall into this stream of comfort and not put the effort in from time to time.
As much as I enjoy spending the day in yoga pants while rocking my husbands free nerdy tech-conference T-shirt, it brings me down…..mentally. And don’t act like you don’t have that same sloppy shit in your closet. When I walk by the mirror in that outfit, all I think is, “What the hell happened to me?” I’m a vain person, and I like to look good. Not a day goes by that I don’t at least put some makeup on, I have standards- damn it! They are just low, really, really low. To quote Tom Cruise in ‘Risky Business’ – “Sometimes you gotta say – What the fuck?” and put some damn effort into yourself and just admit that you’ve never done yoga and you never fucking will- so get off your ass and get dressed…in some real clothes.
Listen– Like most woman, I have body issues, nothing weird like shit growing in strange places issues, but issues nonetheless. I’ve had three kids. Right now I weigh about 20 lbs more than I did a few years ago. I’m not saying I’m fat or that anyone at my weight is, but you need to be happy with who you are, and I love the skinnier me better.
I would like to say it’s all baby weight, some of it is left over from that…but to be truthful…I stopped exercising about 2 months ago and then I ate my feelings. They were delicious by the way!!! And fucking worth it. Sort of. At the time. But not really. Needless to say, I’m back to exercising. Things I’m not loving about myself right now– that area that spans from right below my boobs to just below my hips, and my ass…and arms…and other various parts that are not as tone as they once were.
Wanting to feel better about myself I took action. Do you want to feel sexier? I highly recommend getting boudoir photos done of yourself, even if you don’t have body issues. But if you find that you cover up everything to spare showing the stuff you don’t like then do yourself a favor and make an appointment. If you go to a professional and splurge, you might just love yourself again. The right photographer will put you into positions that will accentuate the good and hide the bad.
For the most part I usually feel sexy but lately I’ve been kind of meh and been feeling a little old. I decided to do some suggestive boudoir-ish photos of myself. Yes, I’m that talented – try not to fall in love with me. 🙂 What I wanted was something that made me look sexier than I actually am and I wanted to feel good about myself when I looked back on the photos. I also wanted images that I could flash at my husband and say “Got any naked pictures of your wife?” (Of course he does!)
My goal was to cover up the stuff I don’t like and just focus on what I do like. You would think there would be more boob shots, because if you know me at all you know I love my boobs. I wrote a post about them here if you missed it. Remember that just glimpses of skin while being subtle can be very sexy. Here’s what I got.
I have a board on Pinterest of some subtle boudoir photos if you want some ideas. I chose them as images that I would like to mimic or recreate down the road. If you take a look at them you can see that most of them are sexy but cover up quite a bit. Feel free to check out my other boards while you are there, just be warned that some of them are downright dirty in nature.
So if you lost your sexy. Go get it back. It misses you.
