the new artsy look

You know when you have to run an errand...
just one
real quick like... so,
you throw on some clothes
any clothes
even if they don't match
because you're in that,
"Who cares what I look like, no one will notice"
kind of mood
and you put your unwashed hair
in a pony tail
quickly dab on
blush and lipstick
add sunglasses
and rush out the door?

Well, the first person I ran into was this charming Starbucks server who asked me if I was an artist...up go my eyebrows, with a look of surprise and I say, "I think I'm... sort of an artist?...Why do you ask?"
The server seriously replies with a nod, "You look very artsy."

It was then that I looked down to see what I was actually wearing, I smiled and said, "Hmmmm?...Thank you."

Leaving the store, I caught my full body reflection in the window, on my way back to the car and declared,

"Frump is the new Artsy look? I'm up for that!!!" *big smile*

If frumpy is the new artsy then count me in!

Though I have to say, you look fabulous and not what I'd call frumpy. In fact, I'd call it artsy.

You do have the look of the artiste in that photo - I'd be happy to look like that on my frumpy days :)

You look like you're feeling better too, and that's what counts!

You'd be gorgeous in anything, my dear. And that is a bit of an artsy look. I like it. But I'd like you in a burlap sack. So there.

love this...this is so true
I was sporting the artist look this morning, running to the bank...mismatched everything, dirty hair in pulled back, but hey, I remembered to brush my teeth and put on lip gloss!

This made me giggle out loud! This is so fantastic...but you must remember, you are simply beautiful, so I do believe that anything you wear will look fantastic. But, I do know what you mean, and I love that you were named "artsy." xoxo
