Minimum effort, maximum effect
that’s what I’m after today. I’ve been having the worst flu ever for the past few weeks, and I’m still feeling a bit worn out and don’t have the energy to put together outfits. Yet, I still I want to wear something pretty, and I need some colour to lift my mood. But I can’t be bothered to dress up properly, so maybe something simple and easy…
I wanted to have this dress photographed a couple of weeks ago, in the gorgeous late autumn sunshine… As it turned out, I was camping on the sofa all weekend, feeling utterly miserable, popping flu medication and overdosing on bad TV. It probably didn’t help that I stubbornly went to work, even though I had lost my voice. I didn’t want to cancel lessons just before autumn break, so I just decided to grin and bear it. Or mime my way through the day, rather…
So, these pictures were finally taken last week, as I was enjoying my autumn break / recovering in England. If a flu is no reason to cancel lessons, it is certainly not a reason to postpone travel plans… Besides, I was almost completely recovered… Sure, landing was slightly uncomfortable… And then there were engineering works on the Tube, and getting across London to St Pancras in time for the train was quickly turning into one of those epic journeys from Hell…. But I made it, had a somewhat relaxing week in England, and we even managed to finally take these pictures.
