Whether they're soft & silky or rough & tough, enjoy the feeling on your skin of the fabrics you wear. And once it's time to change into loungewear or pjs after a hard day's work, savor the change into the cozy comfort of home.
Whether it's finding a place to hang our coats or pulling on thick socks, winter forces us to deal with our clothes. Bury yourself up in a heavy winter coat & help someone on with hers. Wrap on a long scarf. Stomp in heavy boots through in the snow.
Let your clothes distract you
As grown-ups we tend to put aside our physical demands. We push up our sleeves to keep them out of our way.
We want to get dressed quickly, easily, & mindlessly.
Turn your attention the other way: roll down your sleeves & pull them over your hands. Pay attention to the details: the tortoise-shell buttons, the stitching, the ornamental touches.
Dress for the occasion
We dress up for a special event to give its due, to give weight to its importance. So dress for the occasion. We so rarely wear anything fancy--relish the once-a-year opportunity, & do it up right.
