Wearing: House of Holland dress, vintage skirt c/o Trendlistr, Dr Martens boots and Marina Fini earrings.
I don't normally wake up in a good mood. More often than not, I am blurry-eyed in the morning, searching for that first cup of coffee and a malleable, mushy blank canvas. It takes a good hour or so to switch on, and I've developed the terrible habit of looking at my phone in that hour, rather than talking to my partner. Getting dressed in an outfit which makes me feel good is like looking at a compass, having a sense of direction and knowing where to go, in a manner of speaking. The more bright and colourful the outfit, the more energy I have to tackle the day. I recently had my wisdom teeth out, and getting dressed (like, really getting dressed with a sense of purpose) was not my prerogative. Surgery went for two hours and I'm still numb around the chin, and suspect I sustained nerve injury during the extraction. Although that all sounds pretty bleak, things could be worse and my closet remains my happy place. This dress and skirt combination which I have been dying to try out became pretty irresistible over the past few days.
