Hobo Chic

I'll be the first to admit that since I became a full-time painter my "office" attire quickly turned into hobo chic. OK fine, chic has no place in that description. Hobo and hobo alone has become my daily style, but hear me out. First and foremost, the only individual available to pass judgment on my studio look is my pug and he should talk. Secondly, when I paint I move. I switch from standing up to sitting down constantly, sometimes I even lie on the floor and work. Flexibility and wearability in my outfits are essential. Thirdly, most importantly, is the fact that I have ruined one to many pieces of nicer clothing for the sake of fashion that no one sees. I am that girl that eats and has crumbs surrounding her plate or that girl that needs a tide pen with her at all times, so you can be sure that when I paint it's a mess. I've even found paint in my ear once...explain that one.

What I am getting to is for the sake of still feeling like a person with a job, and a feminine person at that, sometimes I need to do something that adds the chic to my hobo. Thus I have found that even a little bit of dainty jewelry and some make-up can go a long way. Just putting on earrings and the slightest bit of sparkle can suddenly make me feel presentable, even in my husband's old shirt and ripped pajama pants. What do you do to transform drab into fab? I'd love to hear your ideas!
