One of Those Days…

casual style over 40

This is what happens when you stage a photo shoot when you have ‘nothing to wear‘, and you’re in the grip of a persistent cold. Or maybe it’s not a cold but a flu. It’s certainly a bit too persistent for a cold…

Whatever it is, it’s making you miserable and cranky. And if that wasn’t bad enough, you hate everything in your wardrobe. Nothing works, no matter what you try. But that’s no surprise because you have nothing to wear, and your wardrobe is just a big mess of old clothes that you just want to get rid of. Seriously, you begin to doubt your sense of style and just want crawl into bed.

Maybe it’s the flu. Yes, you hate your wardrobe, but you hate everything, including having your picture taken. Now let’s just get this photo shoot over with, we have taken at least 38, 000 photos, there must a few decent ones you can use, or photoshop into something half-decent. Or not. Who cares?

It must be the flu…

      Thanks, Nancy. The other blog, Dilettante Artist, is my hobby, maybe even my passion, it allows me to express my creativity and learn new things (illustration and how to use Photoshop). There's a whole series of Film Noir inspired pictures there!

    Oh it's horrible when you get days like that. Even your favourite outfits don't cut the mustard. This may be little comfort but you're still rockin' that tee in my eyes! Feel better soon.

      Thanks, Jessica. Feeling better now, but it was a bit frustrating at work for a while because I have to talk a lot, and with a flu that can be a bit challenging.

    I hope you feel better! Being sick and still having work to do is even worst. When I'm not feeling too good, I tend to go for leggings and a tunic.Thank you for linking up with Weekend Wear,xoMelissa

    Oh Tiina, you look hip, cool and beautiful. I’m sorry you had the flu along with the “I have nothing to wear”, that’s a tough combo. Thanks for sharing our She’s Got Style collaboration. I enjoyed our interview so much.
    Sending big hugs to you from America,
