Welcome to Monday, friends!
Hope we’re all doing well? Had a good weekend? I was in Somerset for a wedding, and I was drinking with the Irish — so it’s been a drunken weekend for me, I’ll tell you! But the past week has me in a good mood for once. I finally got diagnosed with CFS after years of struggling and not being believed by doctors, which is incredibly freeing. And because of that, I’m learning each day how I need to slow down and allow my mind and my body to just be. We’ll talk more about CFS later, however, because today is Monday, and we’re rounding up the outfits of the week!
Starting off the week with some alternative style! Decided to try out my usual “I can’t be arsed with dressing up” outfit with these espadrilles I’ve been wearing all summer. Funnily enough, it turns out the shoes, makeup and hair really dress it up a bit more than usual.
My tiredness has really knocked me off my feet this week, and dressing up has been really hard. I find I have to sit down and take breaks when getting ready in the mornings because my body refuses to work with me. Now I know it’s CFS and I’ll have access to more psychological and physical therapies I’m feeling much more optimistic. But this particular day I was finding the morning hard. I wasn’t even able to get my yoga in more than once this week because of it!
Outfits of the Week
Accidental teacher vibes with this one! I had a big delivery at work, and so I needed to be comfortable. Also, if you’re in the UK — what the fuck is up with the weather? It’s suddenly turned cold enough for longer sleeves and soon enough tights will be needed!
I find it slightly amusing that you can now tell exactly what days I can’t be bothered through these blog posts. Especially now it’s colder and I need to retire a lot of my happier-looking clothing. And whilst wearing this old handmade dress this week, I realised it really needs to sit in some dye for a while. This is why 100% cotton is such an arse — the colour runs out of it too easily, don’t you think?
I’m starting to realise that this dress is so much more than I originally thought it was — literally every comment I had this day was about the dress! It’s pretty cute as an outfit, though, so I don’t blame people.
What do you think of this week’s lazy style, guys?
As always, let me know what you think in the comments!
