To remain cheerful I have left my fairy lights in the bushes and the tree in my garden. Husband is not amused! I just need to turn them on occasionally to lift my spirits.
And it does.
I do try to maintain certain standards during this time. I always put my face on (sheer vanity as I look frightful without some colour and mascara being a ginger). I can get away wearing the same outfit for a few days as long as my hair looks ok. Its saving the planet not washing clothing and hair every day!
But I have put away all my posh frocks and fancy clothing until next year. Just seeing them in my wardrobe makes me mourn the loss of a party, dinner out and even a court appearance, (just kidding).
My mode de jour has definitely been my PU leggings, high boots and my Alpini jumpers. https://www.cakeandcatwalk.co.uk/product-page/alpini-short-pocket-jumper.
They always look good, loads of different colours and lengths and one size does fit all.
Great for a feeling fat day. Several of them are in the sale and I am looking forward to getting some new styles in when these have all sold.
PS Don’t forget your vest. Its still cold out there.
