Style: does it bring me joy?

Does anyone remember that episode of Gilmore Girls where Emily throws everything out of her house that doesn’t bring her joy? I’m really feeling her attitude right about now. After a weekend of feeling like I’ve been sat under a sack of sand, it’s time to do something about it. I have a rule that I’ll let myself feel bad about a situation for a set amount of time then I need to shake it off (unless something can be done about the situation, then do it). I don’t know if it’s officially he healthiest way to live, but it generally works for me.

Anyway, back to Emily. I’ve decided his next week I’m only going to dress in items that bring me joy. The planning behind this challenge has been virtually non existent. I stood in my wardrobe room, had a 5 minute paddy that nothing brings me joy, got over myself, spent the next 5 minutes picking up things that I know make me feel good or I just like the look of. No prep into how I’m going to put any of these things together. That’s part of the fun though, right?

So this doesn’t look like the most inspirational collection of clothes, but I’m pretty confident with all my choices. I may even go a bit crazy and throw some accessories in the mix. I’m going for comfortable but not obvious ‘I’m in a funk’ looks. I don’t think I’m asking too much there. At the end of the day, who can be down when they’ve got purple hair?

Stay tuned!

Much love!
