A walk in the neighbourhood park just before sunset does not require dressing up. Something comfortable and warm enough is all I need. And this outfit fits the bill.
My favourite (of the moment) poncho over a light-weight cardigan and joggers seems to be my outfit of choice these days, at least when it comes to going out.
Of course, when we talk about ‘going out‘ these days, we literally mean going out, as in outdoors, going for a walk. How times have changed…
And I’ve become very lazy, as far as my ‘going out’ look is concerned: no make up except for lipstick, and I don’t even pretend to do my hair (not that anyone would notice even if I did…). I just grab a small bag for my keys and phone, throw on a poncho and go.
Because, why bother? Who’s going to see me here? Some dog walkers, or joggers?
This, my friend, is a cautionary tale. This is what living in suburbia does to you: you stop caring about what you look like and can’t be bothered to make an effort anymore.
Yes, I know, I’ve been living in suburbia, in this same area, for almost 20 years. But I used to get out of here on most days. You know: work, social life, that sort of thing. What we used to do, before Covid19.
But don’t despair: I have a plan. Yes, I’m plotting my escape from suburbia. I’m going to reclaim my city-dweller identity and exchange these parks and forests for something more urban.
Eventually. In two months.
In the meantime, I have to start decluttering (again), and sorting through my wardrobe and books (again). And this time it’s going to be KonMari on steroids…
I’m exhausted already…
