Paint Splattered

Things have wind down a bit over here, so my goal is to get back on top of this space. In case you didn’t know, July was a busy month for me. I was working full time, rehearsing for a dance show and working on a month long collaboration with Open Wines, so my days were very full and consequently, exhausting. This space got the brunt of it, unfortunately. But I’m back here today with a new outfit post taken by myself (like old times) wearing a 50s inspired paint splattered print dress from Mona, a clothing brand I have shared here before.

I’m going to keep this post short today because I have a full day off today, so I’m hoping to get quite a bit of work done (so ya’ll have content here!) Have a great day my bbs! And let me know what you have been up to!

Outfit: Living In Colour

Larkspur Vintage | Outfit: Living In ColourIf I’m being honest, winter is my most dreaded season. Not because it’s really cold (I mean, I definitely don’t like that) but because the shorter days and lack of sun really do a number on my mental health (as it does for many). You guys know about my struggles with that, and you know last winter was an especially tough one for me (maybe you don’t, you can read about it here, if you want). However, I am in a very different place now – both physically and mentally – and with that comes a very strong desire to keep my spirits up when the sun is peacing on us way earlier in the day. I’ve been making a mental note of the things that make me feel good in the winter; a soak in the tub while watching a favourite show (that would be Parenthood right now), baking things I won’t eat all of, sewing (mostly in the way of repairing clothes that have holes in the armpits…how do I always do that!?), coffee in bed, reading a good book, going on a hike (albeit, dressed very warmly), laughing with good pals, putting on an adored song and dancing around my apartment (Blessings by Big Sean, im looking at you) and of course, a colourful outfit, much like the Mona dress I am wearing here. Maybe I often seem vapid because clothes are so important to me, but clothes are very much linked to the way I feel mentally. Putting in a little bit of effort actually makes me feel good inside, and that is something irreplaceable to me. Yesterday, I wasn’t feeling my best, it was dreary out and I was having a hard time willing myself to get things done, but when I put on this dress and stepped out of the house for a walk, my mood shifted and everything that was overwhelming me felt much smaller and easier to tackle. Sometimes all it takes is a change of scenery and a change of clothes.

Tell me about something you do in the winter to help keep you in a light-hearted mood. I’d love to hear and maybe add some to my list ❤
