I’ve received so much support and encouragement from my readers since lamenting about my job situation on Monday, and I can’t thank you enough. I feel so very lucky to be a part of such a wonderful, caring community. My spirits have definitely improved. You helped me to realize that there’s no point in dwelling on all the what if’s. The right job will come along, and it will work out eventually. I have to keep in perspective that this will probably be the hardest time for me in my career – which means that it can only get better from here.
Another antidote for blah days is wearing some of your favorite items. For me, that means my favorite goldenrod Fluevog Malibrans, my oh-so-comfy Ella Moss dress, and a cozy handknit cardigan. Wearing things that make you happy is a good way to get your spirits up. In fact, I try to get rid of anything clothing that doesn’t make me happy when I wear it. Life is just too short to wear boring or uncomfortable clothes.
This navy and white striped jersey dress really has become a staple for me. I love how endlessly versatile a dress like this can be. I’m curious to see how it will transition into spring and summer, though, since it generally requires layering to be decent. I think if I get some lightweight slips and cardigans, it should work just fine.
What do you like to wear as a pick-me-up on days when you’re feeling a bit down?
