I’ve never been a “girly-girl.” I enjoy wearing makeup (it’s kind of like painting my face!) every once and a while … but putting on makeup more than once a week seems like a pointless waste of time.
Ditto to nice clothing. Sure, silk and satin feel nice on your skin and look chic – but they also tear incredibly easily. Wearing a short skirt means you always have to be careful how you sit and stand. You just don’t get a break.
I guess I got lucky because Ryosuke likes me much better without makeup. And he thinks sporty (yoga pants and a sports bra) looks way better than sexy (short skirts and pushup bras). I also like his style – plain shirts and fashionable jeans – much more than the typical “Japanese men’s fashion” (pointless layers, chains, accessories, etc).
We like to call our style “effortless chic.”
It doesn’t work for everyone – but it works for us~
[Then again, there are also days when I’m halfway to the grocery store before I realized I forgot to put on a bra. Again. The joys of working from home during the fall/winter/spring~]
