Jacket? Patrizia Pepe, Winners
Boots? Charles David, thrifted
I have worn this outfit for 3.5 days out of the last 7. I think that qualifies as a Slump. Lately I have been feeling lethargic, uninspired and whiny. Ugh, so whiny... and I don't deserve to whine; I am blessed. And Matt doesn't deserve to put up with my whine.
The slump usually happens when I think too much. I want to start off 2011 with a positive attitude but instead I stew over every life decision I have ever made until now (including the decision I just made to eat almost the WHOLE bag of Reese's Pieces) and beat myself up for not having life figured out. I know... I am not rowing this boat alone, there are plenty who feel like me.
The good news is that I liked the outfit I was wearing when I fell into the rut. At least the time I spent wallowing in self pity, I wasn't wearing track pants and ice cream stains. Oddly enough I have developed a fondness for these awkward, slightly harem style jeans (Look at me flirting with a 2 year old trend...). The boots and the perfectly constructed jacket I have had for years and they still make my cold heart warm up. And the sweater is a new thrift find that was perfect for the holidays, and managed to transition into the Slump rather well. All in all, a good look to carry on in until I sh-sh-shake off this cloud.
And because I feel bad that I subjected you to a rather woeful post, I will share my awkward pose of the day. Feel free to share your ideas for a caption beneath it.
I'll go first...
'Look Ma! I dropped my crotch!'
