Dress for the season you want, not the season you have

…Which is a bit of a misleading title, since I’m currently stuck between, “But SUMMER. I LOVE Summer.” and “CARDIGANS ALWAYS.”

With a lot of upcoming changes comes a lot of messy mind-moments, otherwise known as periods of crippling overwhelm and the seeming inability to get off my couch and away from therapeutic “The Office” binge sessions. I work in a really casual environment, and – as it happens – I’m currently in a month-long period of being the solitary employee in my teeny-tiny office. So you can imagine how that’s going, clothing-wise.

Every so often, though, comes a meeting with another actual, live human being, and I feel inspired to do things like brush my hair and not wear flip-flops. We’re not talking “dressed to the nines,” here, folks, but donning something I wouldn’t be embarrassed to have a firefighter rescue me in* can be a nice change.

Also, holy please forgive the mess behind me.

Everything I’m wearing today is downright OLD, but these are definitely some of my comfiest, most forgiving and favorite pieces. The shoes are my best friend, and if you could see them up close, you’d be able to tell – even the insole is a hot mess. But for a Payless find probably 4-5 years ago, they’ve held up really well and are super comfortable. I’d buy them again in a heartbeat, if I could find them.

Well, I’m off to collect my pizza delivery. …Because  getting dressed is the most I could really accomplish in the personal care arena today. Cheers!

*Did your grandmother ever say that? “Would you wear those underwear if you knew you’d be in a car accident today?” Really?? Is that the metric? Because I’m pretty sure if I knew I was going to be in a car accident today, I wouldn’t leave the house. But thanks for the advice, Gram! It will DEFINITELY haunt me for the rest of my life.
