Ree Drummond has an effortless beauty and a laid-back style we can get behind: Simple makeup, hair down and blown out in loose waves, jeans, boots, and her signature blousy tops (typically sporting floral designs).

With husband Ladd away from home this week, The Pioneer Woman sent a gorgeous selfie to her better half — and let us fans in on the funny story behind it.

"I took this selfie in my car yesterday to send to Ladd. He's out of town with Bryce right now and I wanted him to see me relatively dressed up because I had been a sloth Jabba the Hut recluse no makeup wearing flip flop wearing mascara smudged chap-lipped goober in the week before he left," Drummond captioned the stunning snapshot on Instagram. "[A]nd even though I know he loves me anyway, I wanted him to see that Jabba hasn't forgotten how to brush his hair," she writes in her self-effacing humor.

Drummond's followers were quick to call out the Food Network's star's natural beauty, saying, "I think your husband always thinks you look lovely with or without makeup you are a beautiful lady" and "[p]raise the Lord for the men that see you without makeup and still think you’re the most beautiful woman on earth."

Others identified with the Pioneer Woman's sentiment, quipping "[m]y unkempt alter ego is The Sea Hag (we live in Florida). It’s a holiday when I blow dry my hair," and "[s]o funny! Me too! So much dry shampoo..."

We hope Ladd enjoyed the sweet photo Mrs.Drummond sent his way. We sure bet he's antsing to come home to his gorgeous wife even more now — and if he's really lucky, a hearty slice of his favorite chocolate pie.
