I didn’t end up posting any outfits last week, because I was really struggling with depression and just getting dressed in something vaguely work-appropriate every morning was almost more than I could manage, let alone putting together interesting outfits and finding the energy to photograph them. (I found myself wishing I owned a boring black trouser suit, and was even eyeing boring suits up in M&S one lunchtime when a colleague came up and said hello, having spotted my violet coat across the shop.)
Fortunately my mood has lifted a bit today. I managed to walk into work this morning (last week I stuck to the bus for fear that if I tried walking I’d just end up sitting on the kerb and sobbing and never make it to the office) and it was starting to get light, and there were green shoots in the flowerbeds that looked as though they weren’t far off being snowdrops. I went out in the sunshine at lunchtime and even managed to feel a vague spark of enthusiasm for my job again. And even though my outfit wasn’t particularly exciting, I enjoyed wearing it enough that I took a photo when I got home.
Shawl – Citron
Dress – East
Boots – Duo
You can’t really see it in the picture, but I was wearing my lovely new Nova Steel shawl pin from Skein Queen, which I’m sure also helped to cheer me up.
Hopefully this week will continue to be better than last week was.
