Last Tuesday I woke up with a mutant head-brain-body ache which quickly progressed into full-blown Female Flu, which everyone knows is quite serious and would leave any ‘I’m fine, I’ll just take some Beechams and sleep on the train’ naysayer bedridden.
So much of last week was spent cosseted in Orla Kiely sheets, eating ice cream and watching Blair Waldorf and friends take Manhattan.
Despite feeling like standing in the shower might actually be the end of me, I still got up and dressed every day. I hate lounging about in my PJs and welcomed the chance to wear my favourite Sick Person Uniform – an oversized knit and leggings. Stylishly soldiering on in the face of flu-based adversity – I know, I’m a modern day Joan of Arc.
When I started to feel a bit better (which coincided with finishing seasons 1 and 2 of Gossip Girl… ain’t nobody got time for season 3) Home Alone Hysteria set in so I staved it off with an impromptu bed-based photo shoot. MUCH easier than lugging my tripod down the street, let me tell you.
I’m wearing a Whistles jumper, Uniqlo denim leggings, Primark socks, one necklace from Whistles and another from Etsy and a Cos ring. My bed is wearing Orla Kiely sheets via TK Maxx, a Scottish Wool blanket also via TK Maxx, Ikea cushion and fairy lights, Next wooden bunting (on the beam) and a silver stag head, which was another TK Maxx find.
What do you wear when you’re feeling under the weather?
