I feel defeated.
Not in a competitive sense,
but in a I-literally-cannot-continue-to-function-due-to-a-series-of-unfortunate-circumstances-which-all-lined-up-in-a-row sense -
something to which I'm praying you all can relate.
On these days, there's a large part of me that longs for casual comfort (read: sweatpants) and nondescript underwear-worn-as-outerwear to get me through.
Upon donning said items, however, I typically realize that the degree to which they actually add to my feelings of hopelessness detract from any visceral comfort they may initially provide.
Enter: the hospital-attire-slash-sweatpant-slash-custodian-slash-olympian-slash-homeless person look I exhibit here.
Sans heels, I admit, it's a little . . . drab.
But pop on a pair of over-the-top-obnoxious heels and call it a better-than-it-was-before day.
The key, for me, to an ideal pick-me-up outfit is incorporating the perfect degree of I-don't-give-a-shitness into it in order to counteract any suffering you're feeling inside.
|pants: thrifted, top: Anthro, shoes: Tibi|
AKA: I throw on my pajamas with a pair of heels and go.
You may not win any dates,
but you'll sure as hell feel comfortable, which will, in turn, gain you confidence and happiness and wealth and a rich husband and etc etc
Anyone else have sartorial go-toes for the purpose of a pick-me-up?
