Keepin It Real Friday... How I really look in the Studio

The look on my face when unexpected visitors show up to the studio

I love to look nice, have my hair look great, my nails done and my shoes actually going with my outfit.  Does this happen often?
Nope, not really.  Maybe once every 6 months I look this put together.  But mostly in my everyday life I feel like I have the fashion sense of a 5 year old.
Wear what is comfortable....Check
Wear what I like...................Check
Does it matter if it matches?....NO!
Can I get it dirty?.....................YES!

This is the inspiration for my getting dressed everyday to go to the studio.  I have my designated clothes that I can get dirty, get paint on, decorate with glitter and maybe add a layer of semi gloss too.
Straight out of the dryer.  Yup they are clean.

And then they can move right on to working in the yard, taking care of the animals and doing construction around the property.

And when you stain a shirt in my house it goes from the wear out of the house to wear around the property and in the studio.  I figure the stain is just the beginning of a new life for that t-shirt.  After I have worn it to shreds it then moves onto the rag pile.  Clothes live a long and happy life in my world.
And lets talk about shoes.  I love my mucks. They come off quick and easy, they are up for the challenge of a muddy yard or chicken coop and they come in fun fashion colors.
The first pair of mucks I owned were a lovely green but at the time both my kids had the same size feet as me and more often then not I would have to track them down and demand them back.  So the second pair I bought I got so the boys would definitely not want to "borrow" them.  Now they are both 3 sizes bigger then me so I don't have to worry.

Oh and the wonders of make-up.  Now I am very proud of my new grey hairs (yup I believe having teenagers has caused them to show up) and the hard earned laugh lines on my face.  But I enjoy looking a bit better when I go out in public.  A little eye shadow, some liner and some mascara does wonders for me.  And my bathroom mirror is magical. I swear it makes me look like I'm 25 again.
But time in the studio, time is precious so when I am there it is all natural me.
After 1 cup of coffee

Thank you for taking a peek into our world and I hope you are enjoying the "Keepin it Real Friday" posts.  I like sharing and I love hearing from others.  Have a great day and be CREATIVE!
