All too often women, including myself, grow comfortable and complacent. We can’t wait for the end of the day when we can wash our faces and jump into our favorite pair of sweats or yoga pants, especially during the winter months. Truth be told, as a result, we forget how to be sexy and the men in our lives suffer. Don’t get me wrong, yoga pants can sometimes be extremely sexy, but our men don’t want to see them day in and day out!
One day Corey said to me, “I am really getting tired of seeing you in the same pants and shirt every-damn-day!” It started me thinking, and ya know what? I was feeling pretty frigin’ frumpy after I heard that! He was right… I had grown comfortable and stopped worrying about what I looked like. Hell I work at home, who did I have to impress, I thought. Well, my man for starters!
Regardless if your currently dating a man or in a relationship, they take notice of our looks. Like it or not, men are visual creatures. More importantly, we have the need to feel a certain way about ourselves. If we do not like what we see in the mirror, how can we portray our confidence to our men in a way that benefits our relationship with them?
If we remember how to be sexy, it cannot only benefit us as well as give us a self-esteem boost, it will work wonders for the men in ours lives and our relationships with them…
The clothes do make the woman… There is always a time for yoga pants, however, you should also try to find clothes that set off your figure without being too “comfortable”. Most men dig office attire but many of us can’t wait to shred it once we are home. No worries, find your most comfortable jeans and a hot tank top to set them off and you’re good for a cozy evening at home or a casual night out. Don’t forget to buy yourself a new piece every once in a while whether it’s a new shirt, pair of jeans, or those sexy new shoes you’ve been lusting after. I am sure most of us spend just as much on an evening out to dinner with friends or a night filled with cocktails.
A polished mani and pedi are a must! No man wants to look at dry crusty cuticles, dull nails, or calluses. Granted, I am blessed with my mother having sent me through beauty school so I can give myself these little pleasures. That doesn’t mean you can’t spend fifty bucks every few months to have it done as well. If you still can’t afford it, do it yourself! There is too much info on the web these days to give you an excuse not to. Highlight your paws with a neutral skin tone in the summer and darker shades in the winter. Not into color? That’s ok too; clear is always in!
Undergarments rule! Yes, we all have our favorite most comfortable panties, but do they make you feel sexy? These should be left for the days when we get a visit from our dreaded Aunt Flow. Every other day of the month should be celebrated with sexiness that has no interference. What is Victoria’s Secret? You do not have to give up sexiness for comfort!
All these little tips on how to be sexy will make you feel sexy. The sexier you feel, the more you will exude your side of sexy as well as your confidence! With all of this, the sexy attitude is sure to come…
