Apparently, Monday 17th was the most depressing day of the year. As I peeled my eyelids apart at 7am, I felt the gloom of mid-January hit me. From my duvet cocoon, I listed the reasons for my crappy mood. A 6-weekend month that included Christmas, my birthday and New Year (aka The Month I’m Really Damn Poor). Dark morning. No milk in the fridge. Didn’t get enough sleep. Etc etc.
So I did what any self-respecting fashion blogger would do. I put on my Uniform.
I’m convinced every single woman has a go-to outfit that is guaranteed to make her feel fantastic. For me, it’s the tea dress-cardigan-tights-brogues combination. Maybe with a flamboyant piece of jewellery thrown in for good measure. Everything about this outfit – from the darling Peter Pan collar on the dress to the colour pop pink tights so kindly sent to me by Tightsplease.co.uk – lifts my spirits and makes me smile.
Wearing my Uniform made Monday fly by, which makes a change from my usual 8 hour grind. Maybe life would seem a little less stressful if we all took a day to wear things that make us happy.
